Linux distributions list
I was just thinking that maybe we could take out 1 or 2 of the distributions on the forums list, that are less commonly used. The "Linspire" help forum for example has been up for months and yet there are only like 3 threads in there. I just think that maybe it's a waste of valuable space.

I agree. We'll see what Core Wizard thinks. I think perhaps one of the main reasons the Linspire forum is dead is because their official forum is quite active. I actually frequented it for a while.
The Mepis and Arch Linux sections are pretty dead as well, with under 20 threads. I honestly think the Mepis section should just be swallowed by the Debian section. It's not a different enough distro to merit its own section IMO.
As for Arch... well it's a niche. People complained to get it put in and I imagine they'll complain if it gets taken out. I just think the derivative distros shouldn't need their own section.

Yeah, the only one of the new forums that took off was the Ubuntu forum. I was glad to see it come about because when Ubuntu users posted in the Debian forum and didn't tell you they were using Ubuntu, it caused a certain amount of confusion (sudo, mirrors, etc.).
I'm an Arch user, but I wouldn't be opposed to all the posts in the other new forums (including Arch) being dumped directly into the "Other Distributions" forum and be done with it. That of course, being at Core Wizard's discretion.oz

We should just categorize by type of problem
[post here if your foot is on fire]
and then SCREW the distro threads.
