Re: Names of forums

@JonoH Whilst I agree that some people my not know what tech they are on (or which planet, reading some of the posts :smiley:), I still think having the two boards is desirable. I try to help where I can, but as an ADSL user, with no experience of Fibre, and therefore not feeling confident to advise, it is a waste of my time to read a post and discover when I get to the end, it is a Fibre question.

Edit: @IngeJones got there before me, but I totally endorse what they say.

Re: Names of forums

@JonoH - we could try putting a poll up, let the community voice their preferences on renaming a board?

Re: Names of forums

There is quite a lot of stuff lying in the metaphoric grass verges around Plusnet Towers but when someone will come to do the scything and a tidy up is another matter. I doubt its been binned @IngeJones, more a case of priority.

Sure thing @JonoH, feel free to come speak to me anytime today and we will set this up together (also gives me a chance to show you how it's done for the future).

Re: Names of forums

Yep, I see it and have voted Smiley I might quickly take a look at the word wrap thing though - it shouldn't do that.

Edit - fixed

Re: Names of forums

I voted...  but I would have added the option to name it "non-fibre broadband" - except that  might have got mixed up with mobile data I guess.

Re: Names of forums

To keep things consistent it seems to me that 'non fibre broadband' complements the 'fibre broadband' board title. If you want to call it ADSL then shouldn't the fibre board be renamed VDSL? That works for me but I imagine that it would totally confuse a large number of non technical posters.

The simple fact is that both technologies provide an Asynchronous Digital Subscriber Line, not just the non fibre option.

Re: Names of forums

Thank you Smiley  Now you just need to change the name in "Quick Links" to match!
