MacRumors has made a number of changes to its forum layout. These changes were made to reflect changing user habits, add new forums where the most interest was, group logically related forums, retire little-used forums, and shrink the overall height of the forum home page. Most changes involved a tradeoff between competing interests, so we made these changes based on what best served our overall membership and our site visitors. Please take a look around. We think you'll get used to the new layout and find it useful. For those of you who like details, the following posts summarize the specific changes made. We also provide guidelines about where to post, although the "most closely matched forum" principal is the simplest guide. Knowing where to post also tells you the best place to look for a thread on a given topic. When a thread matches more than one forum, we suggest using the best match or the more specific forum. If it's a toss-up, either is fine. You can start a thread for any technical question in the catch-all Mac Basics and Help forum. Where did the Macs go? It's surprising to find our mainstay Mac hardware forums almost halfway down the forum list, lower than in the past, but this reflects the faster paced and more frequent news and the increased forum activity related to Apple's handheld devices compared with Apple's computers. As always, MacRumors covers all areas of Apple's business, plus major news about Apple's rivals, important third party vendors and products, and industry developments.
