Software & Services has become an imaging and virtualization forum. (8 of 14 top threads are one or the other). Great topics, so why not a forum of its own? Why do the mods quickly shut off these questions and act like discussing this is a state secret and admonish the questioner for discussing something that (for some reason) should not be discussed on the board.? It's like someone is being stubborn, refusing a Virtualization and Imaging forum (or just Virtualization) just because someone suggested it from the "rank and file" and this IS NOT a democracy, (as we are often reminded). Wilder's admin and mods do a GREAT job, but the refusal to even discuss the possibility of adding a forum such as mentioned seems odd. It would SHOCK me to see a thread, "Members: What Do You Think?" and hear the pros and cons of a Virtualization Forum. Instead, we are always told that administration makes these decisions, this isn't a democracy, and if and when administration decides we need a new forum they will add it. Thread locked and/or post deleted. We ARE a community here, without the members, administration would have nothing to administrate. Again, good job, but I hope you would consider this and hopefully, not feel threatened that a mere member might suggest something that (God forbid) might be a good idea and it didn't originate within administration. And discussing it in the forum seems logical - not something to quickly shut down. Why NOT hear the thoughts? Good, bad or indifferent, it could help administration make a decision with a lot of good feedback. Just a thought meant with good intention.
