    Right now, the iPad Apps forum kind of sucks.

    1) It's filled with people hawking their junk apps. There's even one thread in there offering promo codes. The forum needs to be cleaned up, and either ban app advertising (move it in line with the rest of the site), or move app advertisements/promo codes to a separate forum.

    2) There's not nearly enough talk on the forums, which I think is kind of surprising. Millions bought the iPad, and there's flamewars in the main forums, but no one's buying apps? Surely some people would want to discuss the best apps for this and that and/or post reviews?

    I think (and this is my opinion), the main reason is because the iPad Apps forum threads aren't shown in the main page's side column.

    In summary, my feedback is for the forum staff to clean up the iPad Apps forum and make it more visible.

    Developers are allowed to post a thread about their app in the iPad Apps subforum, but codes must be in the Code Sharing forum.

    Please report any threads that violate this.
