I've been around the modding scene for over 15 years, not just phones but most consoles, tv boxes etc. I know how to search threads for information, and spend a lot of time reading tutorials, applying methods from one technology to another etc.
As a result, I don't need to post frequent... hey me too... or aren't Samsung BS type responses. However, because I moderate my posting to only the essentials, when I do have relevant feedback about problems encountered with custom roms etc, I am unable to do so because I haven't spammed the forums with "Hi... My names Barbie will you be my friend " posts.
Yes I could / can PM the authors / dev's but that flies in the face of having a community in the first place and drives development underground.
Anyway... rant over......... XDA is a fantastic resource and top notch community,
My names Barbie, will you be my friend......
