    Why did this get moved to "Wine"

    No one reads the "Wine" subforum. Or at least it seems that way
    Because every one that post there are a bunch of winers... Just kidding no offense i use wine to from time to time

    Re: Why would this thread get moved

    I can't speak to every thread that's mentioned here, but I'll try to explain what I can. I usually don't manage the Games and Leisure section or the Wine area much, but I might have some insight to offer. I'm not an administrator so if you need more specific answers, you should ask someone with authority.

    In general threads get moved so they can be found later. Support questions in particular get bounced around because it wouldn't do any good to have a networking question in the Testimonials area. But if it helps resolve a problem, it might be useful in the future, so it gets reorganized. Same idea with Wine issues.

    That's the basic rationale. If it requires Wine to run, it becomes a Wine question. If it's native, it can stand in Games and Leisure. There are probably a few that ride the fence, to use an American expression.

    It might be that your thread was moved before the Wine subforum was made; you'll have to check the date of your post. Before the Wine subforum there was the possibility that a lot of Wine-related game questions got lumped together.

    If that's not the case, contact a staff member and we'll see if the thread can be split off again. It's a huge effort to do that, but if the merge was done in error, we'll do what we can to correct it. We pride ourselves on customer service.

    Like some other people mentioned, this is a very large forum, and it's generally managed by less than 50 volunteers on a scattered time schedule. That's not necessarily an excuse, but it does amaze me sometimes that it works as well as it does.

    This is so far off topic. ... But personally I prefer Simonsig pinotages.

    Now for the ironic part -- moving this thread to the Resolution Center.

    I guess I just get to be made an example of on this one. Doesn't bother me that much, except for the simple fact that now my poll will be a dead one
    A computer allows you to make more mistakes faster than any invention in human history - with the possible exceptions of handguns and tequila.

    But on another note, I can see why due to future searches the attempt at organization of this manner.

    Re: Why would this thread get moved

    I use alot of time to move wine related threads to Wine. Though I won't page through months or years to find them, so if they pop up I move them.

    It was the alternative to the mega-threads especially regarding WoW as too many threads was made daily, which was (I dare say it) tedious. But people complained about mega-threads, so a wine forum was made (and they still complain )


    Nevertheless, we have a wine forum and we still have a search button, so I hope the WoW people can search/get the help they want.
