    Win 7 and Win 8 posts on the forums about the same lately


    Just my observation but the Windows7 Forum always had many more posts than the Windows8 forum, until recently.

    When I would log on the to the forums, I would go to the Win 7 forum and then mark all read. I would go to the Win 8 forum and do the same thing. Used to be a big difference in the number of posts. Lately, I can do the same thing and when I log on the next time there are about the same number of pages of posts on both.

    What that says? Could be more users on Win 8, or could be more user problems coming up on Win 8???

    What it actually says is probably nothing, just my observation.

    Interesting...

    It could be that some people on Seven Forums are bored and going over to Eight Forums to talk crap about Windows 8.

    That seems to be it. On the eightforums they talk about crap. On the sevenforum, real issues are being discussed.

    It is hard however to gain reputation in sevenforums. The Pros and Masters usually already overtake the new threads.

    The Pros and Masters had to start at zero also. And then, are reps really that important. What counts is that we help people that have problems.

    Write a few good tutorials and you will get traction.

    Make sure you don't post anything regarding Windows 8 (and it's successors) in Seven Forums.

    Why not. There are a lot of posts regarding Windows 8 on the sevenforums and the discussion is a lot more civilized than it is (was) sometimes around here.
