No, I have a question, which is why I asked it. Another question how is it that this thread is marked as possibly answered? Who is that determines that?

Again Dorothy, if you do not know the answer to the question, please don't pretend that you do.

Rather harsh Jay. I saw nothing in Dorothy's answer that indicated that she was pretending to answer something she didn't know about. Or is this just another sling in an ongoing issue?

I think Dorothy has done a fairly good job in responding to the increased traffic in these forums since the beta started.

Some product teams asked to have forums tweaked.

And "possibly answered" just means it has one or more replies.

That makes sense given the seeming randomness of the meged forums.

I'll still have to get used to this awkward possible answered and star system.

Like a lot of the visual frippery you can just ignore it and focus on what you want to see.

I don't think much of it either and have said so, just like loads of other disgruntled users.

But it's time to leave JC to mull over all the comments and decide what to do about them.

We should remember he has to read them all and it must get a bit tedious after the nth repetition.

Nothing personal Jay, I just wanted to make a general point.

Some of the win and mac versions of the product forums, like pagemaker and indesign, but not the photoshop forums.

Decisions were made based on a lot of feedback and observations. A lot of it is how much cross referencing there is side to side and if it makes sense to combine them if it doesn't make much difference whether you are Mac or PC. In the case of Photoshop in particular, there was also the factor of whether participants in each side will play nice together. The answer to that, mostly from the hosts that spend time there (more then just a couple), was a resounding no.

It's pretty easy to move stuff around here (though probably confusing as all get-out when stuff changes!) I haven't seen a list of all that's been combined or dropped, and I don't know all the factors that went into some of the decisions but the most basic is whether there is a need to maintain separation and how much use various forums have been getting. So, again, feel free to discuss and make suggestions.

That was a much better answer, Thank you.

It makes perfect sense in the walking dead pagemaker forum, but we are already seeing a bunch of platform silliness, mostly in this forum.
