Support. I'd like to talk about the hardware of the NES/Famicom casually without cluttering other forums.

That'd probably fall under the Famitracker Talk section though.


On a different note, if this new section does eventually get created, I think the "FamiTracker Support Forums" subtitle up top should be changed to "FamiTracker Community & Support Forums", to reflect the fact that this new board would give this board a sense of community that didn't really exist up to that point. :)

While "FamiTracker Support & Community Forums" would put emphasis on the fact that this is still primarily a support forum, it doesn't have such a nice ring to it. ( -w-)

Good point, this might get more users when the title is changed, as they don't think it's just a Support board with nothing but Support stuff.

As requested, there is now a new off-topic section for any kind of discussion. It's only available for registered members as I still want to keep the focus on support stuff here, at least initially.

Since the focus of the new section is for actual discussion and not for creating inane threads, I think there should be an annotation at the top which points this out, pretty much like the originals and covers music sections already do. Something like "This board is intended for meaningful discussion" or similar to it would be appropriate, in my opinion.
