    Rename this forum suggestion? BSD, Solaris, Unix

    Hi,

    I have seen a few people mention a need for a Solaris forum.

    What do the rest of you think about renaming the BSD subforum to something like BSD, Solaris, Unix? Alternatively post your own suggestions for a new name.

    It's not like this forum is overflowing with traffic and I think the others would fit in here well.

    I don't care. I could deal with it either way.

    That is a good idea, see what the mods and admins think though.

    I'd say the idea has merit, considering the moderators don't seem to want to create a new forum in this area.

    That's the whole idea. Do a poll, see the results and then run it by the staff. They say 'yea or nay'.

    Re: Rename this forum suggestion? BSD, Solaris, Unix

    Having a designated place to the BSD/Solaris/Unix discussions to be moved would prevent a lot of the threads posted on these topics from being lost in the limbo of the main forum Other OS Talk. I support this idea. As for the name, I'm at a loss...

    Aye, since they're so similiar as it is, it doesn't make sense to just go make new forums for them.

    I agree. The staff are of the same mindset as they say there are already too many sub forums already so they won't get their own forums.

    Re: Rename this forum suggestion? BSD, Solaris, Unix

    I think it would be a good idea to have a forum to serve as an umbrella for the various Uxix derivatives. IMHO, it wouldn't make sense to have different sub-forums for each unix os, but at least having the discussions grouped in one place would be a good idea.
