    Discussion section split away from the News section

    Hi there
    Just a suggestion - but perhaps the support section could be renamed "General Discussion like on W7 - often loads of threads and posts are in the NEWS section when these are really threads about certain aspects of Windows which we would like included, don't like, can modify etc etc. and aren't really News as such.

    Not sure how difficult that would be but it could perhaps tidy up the News section.

    That's a logical suggestion and I can't see why it hasn't been here from the get go.

    Hello Jimbo,

    It was named "General Support" here at EF instead to help keep it on topic for "Windows 8" support.

    Only news articles that meet the "News" posting guidelines are allowed to stay in the News forum.

    For off topic discussions, we have the Chillout Room like over at SF.
