One for the FE ?

Why do we not have a dedicated forums for the Android and Java platforms ?

Don't know about java, but that many de4dicated Android forums available, even sub-forums for the different incarnations

Try Googling. I'm sure you'll find soemthing

If you notice there are already 14 sections to the PCA forum website, and some of those are already under-subscribed, looking at the last posting dates on some. Making further additions or sections might overload the system even further?.

As morddwyd suggested, there are already a number of websites catering for your request. It just takes a little Googling in finding perhaps the right one's for you?.

I think we need fewer forum areas, not more.

"I think we need fewer forum areas, not more."

True.

So whats for the chop?

Or amalgamate vista, 7 and 8 into the helproom.

Digital and mobile could merge.

Mmmmmmmmmm !

So 'P C Advisor' is not interested in catching some of the readership potential from the millions of users of Java & Android or even open source operating systems ?

They do all have one thing in common.

Why do you draw that conclusion? Those people can just as easily post in the Helproom if they need assistance, or the Mobile Phone help forum.

If you have these why not for the likes of Java ?

If PCA need to tidy the forums then simply cut these dedicated Microsoft forums and include them in the 'Helproom'.

"If you have these why not for the likes of Java ?"

Simply because over the history of the forums we have had huge numbers of people wanting help with Windows, and relatively few queries about Java.
