    It's kind of weird having on long section with people asking all kind of questions about different phones, wouldn't you say? Why not just get rid of this and have people seek help in their own phones sections?

    If you click on Moto Droid Bionic Forum you will see a sub forum called Tech Support.

    Alot of times a phone's sub-forum or whatever you wanna call it, will be kinda like a desert. Especially with phones that are older. This is like the "general discussion" area of tech problems, if you will.

    Yes, but above all of that in android discussions there is also a android tech support section which we are in now and its a mess with all kinds of posts about different devices. It is a mess and kind of redundant.

    I don't disagree. But, there are devices that do not have a dedicated forum do to age and popularity.

    where we are now, then later on under forums each phone is listed with it's own tech support forum. maybe i see it laid out differently than mods do.

    True but in the Motorola section for example there is a Bionic section and a archive section yet people are coming here asking Bionic questions buried in a bunch of unrelated stuff, just saying it could be implemented a little better, maybe another retired deceives section under the main ones like Motorola or something.
    Anyhow, just a suggestion that would help me find needed information better. and something to mull over for a while......

    Just go through it and ask yourself how anyone would find anything in it. Just a thought about changing it, sleep on it a night or two and come back and see if you think its doing the job intended.
