Just wanted to say thank you to all of you. I love coming here every year when a new iPhone is getting ready to be released and then once it's released we move over to the Accessories area to see what will be available and new cases. Can't wait until Tuesday!

This and imore.. I would expect this forum to be more active..

I for one enjoy reading people's experiences queuing up in line on release night taking pictures of where they're at in line and at which stores. I recall people documenting how they were driving to the nearby car parks setting up food and drink in their cars and just waiting for when they should start getting in line!

Oh and even when first unboxing the thing.

I could name a few, but it would not be fair to say it on one forum that the other is better. We are all here because this forum is "something".

I personally use these forums due to active user community and responses. The news and all that, that can be gleamed from anywhere, possibly faster than from at MR. But, the strength of MR is an active community which brings to light a lot of things a lot of people can/ are/ might be interested in.

On that note, the only other community I might call upon is Reddit.

There quite a few knowledgeable forum members on here and I like the way These forums are set up for discussion. The moderators also are a huge reason with the structure of these forums and they do a good job.

IDK. I came to MacRumors because they have a forum to support PowerPC Macs, which I use.

I got an iPhone later and ended up in this forum.

The iPhone forum here could go away tomorrow and I'd still have a reason to be here (PowerPC Macs).

But I stay because I like helping (when I can) and most of the people in this forum are nice and know their stuff.

You will not find a place that has more knowledge and better coverage of the Apple universe.

Behave, grow a thick skin and enjoy!
Agreed.

There's always Apple of course, but I've long since abandoned their forums. Unless you're considered to be some sort of expert or known in the Apple community generally they are an arrogant lot over there.

Why?! You confused me :(. I love macrumors and don't want to leave :mad:
I didn't say it would and I didn't say I wanted it to.

I just simply stated that if it were to go there are others forums here that I have reasons to keep me here.

I enjoy this forum as well. There are a lot of differing opinions, and that's generally a good thing, We need to be exposed to different opinions in order to expand our horizons and possibly learn new things, whether we like them or not.

That being said, I'm not so sure about @Relentless Power, @Newtons Apple, and @Applejuiced. :D

And @eyoungren? Oy! :D

Don't need to worry about me as I am banned every other week. :rolleyes:

My skin is super thick!:p

I enjoy interacting with users on here, but for coverage The Verge’s live commentary is how I prefer to watch (can’t watch it live on Apple because I’m using Chrome)
