Personally I'd vote for just a single main "Azbox" category since the premium and elite are essentially the same in most regards. On the other hand, I can't see any harm in having an "Elite" and "Premium" sub-category.....but then again I'm not doing all the work around here either!
Hey Guys AZ is just the first reasonably priced Linux/ethernet box to hit the American market.
well put brentI disagree. There are dozens of sat forums out on the internet, setup in the same fashion. What occurs on them is that the members only hang out in their own forums, and the same questions keep getting asked and answered in different places. It's amazing how ignorant an stb owner will stay, if they gravitate to only their own equipment.
I prefer to think of us all as a FTA brotherhood, despite equipment differences, and I think the forum should continue on those lines.
probably neither. Since the azbox is changing weekly or even daily, there are always new things with it changing. Sure some of it can go in one thread but yes some stuff gets across couple threads. I didnt know that it really mattered.Even with AZBox now, many threads contain overlapping content and devoted to the same subject. Hope, most aren't created just to raise AZBox offer awareness, but to discuss various features. But some AZBox threads are repeatedly created by the same members, and discuss exactly same features in the same limited manner, adding literally nothing new. Not sure, if it's to promote the STB or themselves.
Anyway, if separate STB Model sections are created, same approach is long overdue to Sat PC Tuners as well. There are several models that are long time high in popularity, or just interest members more due to more advanced chipsets used. And its hard to find some info fast on these models without devoting a section for each, like Twinhan or DVBWorld brands.
OK now you've done something that takes a LOT to do and that is piss me off.What's troubling, the forum organizers don't want to state their position on the issue and reveal motives behind it. Section creation is just quietly blocked, and members are offered to search for hours in the forum archive for some rear info, which can be accessed in minutes ones the data is properly organized.
I have no comment on that...not even worth it.And the number of repetitive threads will drop twice, while number of the site visitors will increase due to better info accessibility, thus raising Sat. Guys forum rating and funds generating opportunities.
There is already enough moderation here with me moving threads. Once a week I go and move threads from the FTA Shack to the main area because they are more technical. If a thread needs moving right away it is done.As to parallel threads in each STB model sections, this can be cured by moderation. If one has a question about dish setup, why place it in AZBox forum anyway simply because you have this STB, unless particular unique UI features are involved, which are of no interest to other make owners.
