Additional features for MeeGo forum?
Andrew Flegg has reintiated his forum <-> email integration campaign in the form of a multi-feature forum request thread: It'd be great if forum.meego.com had two additional features: The newsub.php feature from talk.maemo.org, which lets you see new posts in a subset of the forum, and push participation (i.e. the forum <-> email bridge). This has been a long-standing request that started in the heady days of maemo.org's middle years. When the forum was started at MeeGo.com, the feature was requested again, but put off due to "server constraints" waiting on the server migration. The migration is now months past and no progress has been made on the integration.
Should talk.maemo.org have Nokia N9 sub-forum?
An interesting question has been raised about whether to add an N9/N950 forum to talk.maemo.org. RM Bauer has weighed in on the discussion on behalf of the council: Even when this thread was started, Council had decided to add a new sub-forum for the Harmattan device(s). We are just waiting for Reggie to put it up. I am not sure what the delay is, but hopefully it will be resolved soon. The new sub-forum is just for the purpose of organizing threads since N9/N950 threads are popping up in sub-forums where they don't belong and don't read anymore than that into the decision, especially based on subsequent posts to this thread. Your editor is somewhat hesitant to weigh in on the issue given the likely emotional involvement in the discussion, but it does seem like a good opportunity for a fresh start for Harmattan and MeeGo to get away from the poison which has cropped up in talk.maemo.org.
