    Idea:

    Let's divide and conquer. With over a million downloads of Lion and this forum obviously VERY popular it is getting impossible to find what you are looking for in this big OS X Lion forum.

    How about the powers that be subdivide this thing up to mirror Apple's support site as so:

    OS X Lion - General
    OS X Lion - Server
    OS X Lion - Apps:
    Boot Camp
    Mail
    Safari
    Mac App Store
    Time Machine
    FaceTime for Mac
    Address Book
    iSync
    QuickTime
    iCal
    iChat


    Thoughts? Anyone agree? Bump it if you do (that is if bumping is allowed...)

    Woah... hold on there. Let's not get carried away. You are suggesting 14 forums to replace 1? A bit overkill

    It might make it nice if you are looking for one specific thing, but there are a lot of people that just browse to help people or to engage in Mac related discussions. People wouldn't take the time to go through each 14 forums individually and thus the more obscure forum topics would get zero love and thus minimal responses. Say right now the Lion forum has 1,000 viewers, if your divide came to fruition it would look a bit like this...


    OS X Lion - General (700 viewing)
    OS X Lion - Server (50 viewing)
    OS X Lion - Apps: (150 viewing)

    The forum will get less and less visitors from the huge amount you have today, and posts too, once a few weeks pass and the excitement of Lion wears down.

    There is Windows on the Mac forum
