Separate names with a comma.

please answer this poll
is it possible to split the MB - MBP - MBA "last post" column into separate forums on the Mac Forums page #1? Thanks either way. Earl
I second this, that would be great. And the same for the desktops forum as well... pretty please?
So I guess they're never getting merged... I'm kinda used to it now... at first I wanted them together but I'm changing my vote (not that anybody gives a ****)
Is it possible with the forum's engine to make three sections, one with only Macbook/iBook related threads, the second MBP only, and the 3rd one being a combination of both?
The current parent directory (Notebooks) for MB and MBP sections only bring up the choice of choosing from MB, MBP or MBA sections.
Heck, why not make it 4 sections, with the 4th being a combination of all 3?
I think its safe to come to a conclusion from the poll....when will the change be made?
What change? The poll says that over 72% of people prefer separate forums, which is what we have in the form of subforums.
Seperate is way better, it makes it so much easier to find information on just the models you want to read about!
Very unhelpful, equally unfunny.
Two forums, arn.
so is this gonna ever happen. i think its a good idea
As far as I know, vBulletin can't do this out of the box. I believe that arn did a bit of hacking some time ago to make subforums more usable from the index page and expressed an interest in having a "last post" visible for each of them, but I'm not sure what would be involved in taking this next step.
An alternative is to make each one a full-fledged forum instead of a subforum, but that's not ideal from a hierarchical organization perspective.
i third this. thanks
1 for iBook, one for MacBook
Honestly...I just want to know if I should hold off on a MB. I was on the verge of making the purchase this week and I see a potoential upgrade to them. It started with the i-Touch and then the i-Phone. Should I hold out on the MB? Wait for this hypothetical update?
If you are buying this for school, don't wait. Really. Even if they do update, what are they going to do that would be so big. They're obvioulsly not releasing a redesign. Maybe from a gig of ram to 2 gigs base, the others stay the same. That'll probably be it, maybe a processor bump, so, heres my advice,
GO BUY IT.....like NOW!
It already is 2GB ram base, and expensive ram at that. They're not bumping base ram for a while.
The idea of splitting forums is so 1990's. There should not be arbitrary pre-defined categories at all. Just posts, with "tags" indicating what subjects/topics the post relates to.

We all know what happened to yahoo when it tried to rely on people/humans to categories websites into predefined categories
Rather than split the forums by product line, perhaps they should be split into Whiners and Discussions.
I would love that. Just don't have it named Whiners, instead make it something like "Grievances", just so the whiners aren't embarrassed
I voted "together"
now that i think about it, i think it should be separate.
its just less confusing when people are talking indirectly about an MB or MBP.
let's them sperately.. i thought
both of them seem to be closer either External and Internal stuffs
So it would better for Macfan to see CLEARY how different they are.
Now that the MB and MBP's have been refreshed and both are now so similar, it seems to me that "glassbook" and "glassbook pro" discussions should reside in the same sub-forum.
Looks like every MacBook Pro users don't want to share their forum with the "lower class MacBook Non-Pro user"
