Ideas ! ? ! ? !
The "News" Forum should be restricted to 3 - 5 Replies @ Most.
I would Like to see a "General Chat Area", (One Stop Shopping !)
Open to Everyone, No Rules, Kinda like this Whole Board is Now !
"Auction" & "SWAP MEET" should become One Forum, with "GROUP BUYS" & "DEALS"
("Gathering" is Important, But it is Not HACKing.)
Then The "Next Level", "Project/Hacking", Broken into Forums,
Pretty much like most of the Board is,
Except Lose the General & Reference, I-Opener & WebSurfer Forums.
I would have this Level Restricted to Postings By Registered Users Only.
(If People are caught misbehaving?,
They can be thrown back to the "Chat Room" Only)
This could Keep the "silly" Questions out of the Work Threads.
WE Need some "Harvesters" going thur the older stuff, getting the GOLD out,
So the Rest Can be Deleted, in Hopes that the SEARCH Function could be brought back to Usefullness.
& Finally The "Reference Section" should be
HTML WEB PAGES that are Donated by their Builders.
These could be Built, tested & Approved OffSite
& then Uploaded to "Linux-Hacker" & Linked.

Your AD Banners are Nice, But The "No Compete" Rule just doesn't Work !
You Can't Stop the Flow of Information.
If You Keep the Banners & I think You Should.
You Should Post The Prices, for a Month & 1/2 a Year !
Instead of Moderaters for Every Area, I would think Shifts or Watches, A Person All the Time (24/7)
Someone should Always be Here Monitoring, If You Hope to Have Any Rules.
I Actualy Like the No Rules Atmoshere Here
& Think that WE have kept it on Topic most of the Time.
This Board isn't about Personal Attacks or Me being Rude !
It's about HACKING ! (some people Need to Remember that !)
Thanks for reading My Input, & Good Luck with whatever You Decide to Do.
