I have created the new Ask Geekzoners sub-forum. Please read the sticky.


Topic subjects must have "What" or "Why" or it will be removed.


Off Topic discussions should be created in the Off Topic sub-forum.

I can see this new forum when not logged in; when I am logged in - nothing


Clicking your link when logged in takes me to the main forum page.


EDIT - the above information was a few days old (when I came back from holiday and had to log in again and accept the FUG). Tried to replicate and can't see the new sub forum when logged out now.

The new sub-forum didn't last long. People didn't "get it" - a place to ask others for personal experiences - instead people were asking questions that were obviously better posted in Desktop Computing, Cars, etc...


I thought of creating a place for a more local "Ask Reddit" but it didn't work out. I have moved everything back to Off Topic and deleted the sub-forum.

Sounds like it would've been a good idea if posts stuck to the What or Why guidelines.
