It's appears more and more people are heading toward hackintosh and I was wondering hackintosh sub forum would be appropriate and less clutter?

This gets requested every now and then, but we have decided not to create a dedicated Hackintosh sub-forum for several reasons.

First and foremost, there are already well established Hackintosh focused sites and forums, such as InsanelyMac and tonymacx86. It would be difficult for MR to offer anything that the existing sites don't offer already.

Secondly, a Hackintosh forum would be in conflict with our Forum Rules, more specifically the warez rule:

Warez/Serials/Keys. Do not post software serial numbers or keys or refer people to specific websites, software, or techniques whose purpose is to break or bypass software licensing methods, distribute cracks, or obtain or use commercial software or media in violation of its license and/or for copyright violation. Do not ask for or give such help.

For a Hackintosh community to operate efficiently, it's necessary to be able to post modified installers and other files, which would be against our rules as it violates the license agreement. Technically any discussion of Hackintosh could be considered as a violation of the license agreement, especially any post that guides a user to build a Hackintosh, but we have decided to allow general discussion, but not promote Hackintoshing with a separate sub-forum.

Okay. Gotcha.
