Might I suggest breaking out the packages to their own directories



  • This may be a good time to make seperate sections in the forum for the different packages.
    Example:
    pfSense English Support
    –>

    • Packages

    –>

    • SpamD

    • pfflowD

    etc…

    Just my $0.02 worth
    You guys are doing great!



  • If it was up to me, you'd still be posting to a mailing list instead of me having to click on dozens of forums.  No thanks, I vote for no more message boards.

  • Excuse me? Why am I making you click dozens of forums? Did I do something wrong? If so, I'm sorry. Please do elaborate.



  • billm is no fan of forums and he doesn't want to have even more different boards to monitor and I agree with him. people already send items to boards where they don't belong or post topics that have been answered, discussed or solved somewhere else. adding more boards will only confuse more and imo.



  • The general rule of thumb should be that if any given package starts consuming 60%+ of the posts then it may deserve its own area.  But until then, its not worth even more forum areas IMHO.

    13 packages plus the existing dozen or so forums makes for dozens of forums.  I'm old enough to remember and use BBS's, yet I still prefer email - I can sort and filter my inbox based on what I choose to read.  Which means more time spent on email worth replying to.  More forums split the attention the developers (who are still the primary support - although a few souls have certainly stepped up and chipped in on the support from) leaving us with less time to write code.  Until a package becomes enough of a nuisance filling the existing packages forum, it's really not worth splitting it out.
