Hi,

The fact is, there are more people in the openSUSE Forums than there are here in the mail lists. Specially new users.

And the sad fact is, that many devs, packagers, maintainers, shun the forums as a place of devils or who knows what - and by doing so, they are missing a huge user and test base.


For example, Tumbleweed.

Many people are activating Tumbleweed, coming to grief, and subsequently crying for help in the forums - not here.

The same is happening with Gnome 3: there are dozens of new threads about G3 there.


WE NEED YOU!!!

Yes, you knowledgeable person, member, dev, packager, who has worked on your pet project, like Tumbleweed, Gnome 3, or whatever, to go down to the fora and communicate with the huge user base there.


What, you do not like the web interface? Neither do I.

OpenSUSE forums are very fortunate in that they have a classic text NNTP (News) interface you can use with Mutt, Alpine, Thunderbird... no need to touch a browser with a ten foot pole.
