    Why are there Posts on Books and Specific Apps Here?

      Not to be a curmudgeon. But!

       

      Isn't this section for and about Nook Color Device?

      Don't we have specific sections for Books, Lend Me,etc.

      And specific section for Apps related software?

       

      Sorry but hate to see specific groups being waterdowned with non-related chitter-chatter!

          Well, it is "General Discussion". The Nook Apps section is subtitled "NOOK Apps FAQ's and Troubleshooting", and the other subforum is "NOOK Color Support: Connectivity, Hardware, and General Support FAQ's.

           

          Now, there are other boards, and if the forum system supported placing subforums in multiple forums, I'm sure that posts on books and Lend Me would be more likely to end up in the right place ... but lots of people seem to just have this particular board bookmarked, and if they have a question on something they are doing with their Nook Color, they reckon it fits under "General Discussion".

            Your expectations are too high.  So are mine.  :smileywink:

             

            Also, unlike most non-commercial boards which have volunteers that love to police (I use this term in its positive context) message boards and move threads to their proper locations, the moderators here probably have other responsibilities for their 8-hour workday, and this is a pretty active board.  Combine that with the fact that for many Nook purchasers, the boards here are often their first introduction to Internet message boards.

             

            While the "lack of thread discipline" can be frustrating to us old-timers, I bdoubt there is anything that can be done, other than the occasional suggestion to new users.

                Thanks for the replies!

                 

                Yep just so tired of seeing Hunger games and Lend Me please,etc... posts. When there are specific sub-forums for exactly that type of subject. Whether it's specific books or genre to lend me request. And everything about Apps section.

                 

                It's Like peopled are just to lazy or it's to much trouble thinking maybe I should look at all the sub-forums and see where my post should be appropriately placed. Or the rules or forum etiquette doesn't apply to me.
