Hi Everyone,

We got some requests to split this forum up into a WM and and Android section, please let us know your opinion by voting on the poll.

Thanks in advance!

Hey Flar,

We probably should either do that or simply rename the "General" to Android as most of (if not all) of the latest threads in that section have been about Android. I will probably be a lot simpler to just rename them. As far as the other threads (oder one relating to WM), we can transfer them to the ROM Development section.
But we should definitely do that since the Vogue has been one of the most successful devices for Android porting, so I think it deserves its own section.

My two cents...

Isn't the Touch General section already an Android section?

No, a lot of people still post application-related WinMo support questions there.

It makes sense the General forum should be for stock devices.

They get rapidly buried due to the constant Android activity.

Who uses stock?!?!?
If you have a good set of general guidelines (instruction sets and a good Q&A thread), there is no need for this "General" section.

In fact, that just gave me an idea...

Well, given the choice of "ROM Development" and "General", people put their questions in General.

Renaming the forums to "Touch CDMA Android" and "Touch CMDA Windows Mobile" would be satisfactory.

That's what I was going for

I think they're not planning to do this until the server upgrade comes in on the 11th.

Well, considering that it is only a matter of renaming the section, I don't believe that there is much to be done in that (especially considering that they have already renamed most sections on the site a few days ago).
