Can we please take care of the "should i wait..." threads? I and am sure others go to find information and actually help with problems. Few months ago Mods would simply move these threads but now it seems nothing is being done. Just my 2¢.
Actually what the iPad forum really needs is the crackdown and dismemberment that the console forum got a few years back due to all the fanboy pissing contests between brand a and brand b. It seems every other post on the ipad forum results in a war of brand loyalty rather than intellectual discussion or meaningful contemplation between individuals.
I would suggest the same treatment for the ipad forum crowd as you introduced to deal with the console forum (remove post count's for users, more moderation and putative treatment when it is needed).
You should also re-instate post count for console forum, which has for a long while towed the line as continued penalization whilst other sections seemingly run riot is bias and unfair.
Whilst I do agree it's not about just posting for post count sake and it is the content that is important, the reality is there is a post count, for your argument to truly have merit should it not suggest we do away with them entirely then?
