The Bleeping Computer Staff would like to invite all of you to help us shape Bleeping Computer as we move into the future. As part of our goal to make this a warm, enjoyable, and informative site we are always looking for ways to improve the experience it provides. With all of this said, we are wondering if there are any other forum categories that you, the members, would find enjoyable.

These forums can be for advanced subjects or even more beginner subjects that we have missed. If there is enough demand from all of you, then we will add them.

When thinking about this, please keep in mind that we envision Bleeping Computer as not only a place to come and ask a question and get an answer, but also as a place to have good, deep, conversation about computers in general.

If you have suggestions that are not related to the forums...post them anyway!

So with that said.... suggest away!

P.S. I will keep this topic open for three weeks. After that all the suggestions will be reviewed and acted upon.

Just so you know, I have taken notice of this thread. However, as of right now, I have nothing to suggest right now.

Thanks for asking, though. :thumbsup: You guys and gals are great!!!

Hmmm....could we make a smiley face that looks extremely confused and is drooling? I really need that smiley for some of my replies. With some of the answers that I get, I tend to get "lost in translation" so to speak, and get confused as to what I was reading. A confused drooling smiley would be in nearly all my replies to questions that I ask, as I usually ask a technical question, and get an even more technical response that is above and beyond my understanding and knowledge of computers. So I sit there in front of my computer and look confused and begin to drool.

I used to think that I was smart. Then my wife stepped in and told me otherwise. :thumbsup:

On the flip side, everyone here has been simply fantastic with both their patience and their kindness in answering my questions! I've learned a lot from this site, and hopefully will keep on learning. Of course, if I learn any more, my head will swell and all my hair will fall out :flowers:

I've been hanging out in the "Hardware and software" secion, as I feel that my strongest point as far as computer go. However, my "goal" is to make it on the HJT team. Hmmm....yes....first a member of the HJT team then......WORLD DOMINATION!!! MUWAHAHAHAHAAAAA!!!!

Thanks to everyone here at Bleepingcomputer.com for everything that you all do!!!!!
War produces veterans, wounded both physically and mentally. They have sacrificed for us.....and it is now our job to help these veterans, as they have already helped us in ways we will never know, in ways that we cannot fathom, and in ways that we take granted every day.

It would be really neat to see some kind of tutorial on wireless networking. I know and have been there trying to set up 2 computers with out a router. And have achieved that. But as with anything it can';t last long. SO a router is my next purchase.

Thanks a bunch.

Great site. At least there are people who look and respond to the questions for help. :thumbsup:

On a serious note, i feel as a new member that there are alot of issues and topics already covered here. I would maybe suggest cleaning up dormant or unused members accounts as i,ve seen there are quite a number if members that have never even posted or only posted once.

Possibly some more stats on members perhaps a combined total demographic of members can be formed..might be interesting, might also be a bad idea, so its just food for thought.

Stats are cool :flowers:


Does it show i work in marketing :trumpet:

All the same i appreciate that you ask the members for their suggestions and i hope it helps you creating an even better BC community.

Only been around here a month or so (I frequent other boards as well) but I do find the order of forums in the Quick Jump dropdown menu a little clumsy. Mainly the "How to" guides. They're stuck in between OS,HW, and other forum links. Every now and then I find myself in the "how to's" while having to scroll past them. :thumbsup:
It would be nice to see them pushed down the menu just above the "chat" forums as they are mainly references anyway. Other then that minor annoyance, It's pretty nice around here. Keep up the great work.

Just noticed today there are now ads in the in the starting topic of every thread.
Bad placement guys. Makes it hard to read. :thumbsup:
Not something most posters want to see "Added". :flowers:

OK, now they're gone again.
Working on the site are we?

Yeah noticed that yesterday. Isnt there some way of having like a "advertising bot" that enters like one "reply" per thread ( or more ) with advertisement content. Have seen that on some other forum, dont ask me where tho :trumpet: .

Other than that, great site. Always been, always will be. Tho I had to get used to your policy of making tuts in a way that anyone can follow them, since most other tuts get very technical with all the ever reoccuring spyware/malware.

bfn & regards,

Dont worry about the advertisements. If you are a member you will see none of them. There are a few pages left that show ads to members and they will be fixed soon.

Ads are only shown to guests now.

I do not think thats an unfair policy. Guests see ads...members dont. Membership is free so no reason to complain :thumbsup:

I think putting all polls in their own space would be good. One can see all and answer more as they won't get buried.

Oh silly me. Could have been that i saw them when i wasnt signed on :flowers: . Thats interesting that you can show ads to guests, but not to members. Didnt know that and more then fair I d say :trumpet: .

The polls to be done i a different section is a good idea, so you can quickly check if there are new ones and you dont accidently oversee em, even if you are interested in taking part...

I'm no Mac fan (my user name on a Mac forum is "MacKillsMyInnerChild" :thumbsup: ), but I would like to see more on Mac, so that people can get the best of both worlds. Hell, even throw Linux or Unix in there. Even some Linux ditros like SuSE or Fedora. This would open a brand new door in BC. Its called bleeping computer, not bleeping PC. You never now, some people can have bleeping Macs, so I say that's a good addition. :flowers:

EDIT:
We do have a Linux/Unix forum...oops :trumpet:

Well, still add that Mac forum as an independent one and also add emulators!! Like PearPC and/or VMWare Player.

Well I think a usefull feature would be a "mark all posts as read" button at the bottom of the "new posts" area. When you scroll down a full page you have to go all the way back up to hit the button to make all posts read.

Thats about all I can think of for now....
