    Forum links/Prefixes

    Hi Folks,

    I noticed the Ubuntu Community links in the header is highly under-populated. It doesn't contain links to "Get Mythbuntu" or Ubuntu Studio, Ubuntu Gnome, UbuntuKylin, Edubuntu (Basically all the official derivatives found here: http://www.ubuntu.com/about/about-ubuntu/derivatives)

    Same goes for prefixes on other forums, not all official derivatives are listed.

    Thanks,
    Matt

    This may have been an oversight on our part, we have a Forum Council meeting this weekend, where I'll bring this up for discussion.

    It's a shame that people forget that they are welcome and encouraged to bring things to the FC via the Agenda links to which are on the front page of the forum and in the Forum Community dropdown.

    Thanks Folks,

    Elfy: To be honest.. I had no idea. The front page contains a lot of information (various forums, plus all the logged in users). It's a lot of information to sift through looking for something specific. Particularly when someone is unfamiliar with the forums. Secondly, to me it's not immediately obvious that 'ForumCouncil' should be used to submit bugs or forum feedback, but the Feedback & Help forum did seem to the the right destination.

    While I searched to see if my comments had been brought up before, I admit I didn't specifically search on how to best submit that feedback. Thanks though for the information, and perhaps sometime in the future I will better be able to submit to the Forum Council

    It wasn't directed at you

    I'd have @camelinahat - try the FC agenda here - if it had been ...

    It was a general comment - I wish people would

    Mop up some more from your desk
    I added Kylin - Looks like the distros are there... unless they need to read Ubuntu-GNOME and UbuntuKylin instead of just Gnome and Kylin
