Reducing overall clutter in threads and sub forums is great, let's do it.

As far as availability goes, in the US, there has been mention of Oct 21 on att and early November for others. Given though that Samsung has an event scheduled on the 25th featuring the S-pen in the invite, the info does not seem to be definitive till then. Anyone knowing anything more?

Now as for the comment above. General is about General info. Specs, Over all availability, pricing and off topic chit chat. Non of this is country spicific

Zillion different places in India with Billion different prices and millions of new offers on thousands of online sites are not country specific????
Well, let's just call it a day shall we..anyways we will migrate soon..
Thanks for the support

Look the issue is not talking about it. The issue is some peoples want/need for talking about availability in one country over another. There is no real reason for this. It doesnt help the site as a hole and only fills up each device forum with useless threads.

+1. Country specific threads just do that, reduce clutter Some get it, some don't :P

US availability would be the end of month after the event from what I could gather. Samsung got too busy launching the phone first in India (sorry, couldn't resist that one)

And I just banned you for posting that...

This has gone long enough...

Listen, and listen well because I will only say this ONCE.

We are not racist nor do we have an issue with threads like the ones you want created. Having said that, Creating Nationality based threads does create a segregationist atmosphere throughout xda.

This place is a color-blind, religion-blind, nationality-blind forum, where we do not discriminate against ANYONE for ANYTHING (sex, sexual orientation, religion, ethinicity, political preference, etc). Creating threads such as "[country] Official Discussion Thread" is not something that is required to talk about devices that may be country specific. You could (and this is to counter the argument from above regarding the specs, availability, etc), instead of creating a "Country" specific thread, you could create a "DEVICE" specific thread. Guess what? Devices with different specs will have different model names and will be available in different places. No need to create a thread about Country specific talk when the forum is for device specific talk.

Were you even aware of the existence of the Social Groups feature on this site, which was specifically added to prevent this exact kind of situation?? In fact, if I am not mistaken, there is an Indian only social group which has been around since the days of WM.

Want to go to MoDaCo to create these threads? Be my guest, I have nothing against you leaving or against Paul opening up a sub forum for a specific device. If the other 100 people who agree with you also leave, then so be it as well. I am not holding a grudge if they chose to follow your lead. Sheeple will be sheeple after all. However, (and this is the reason why I am actually pissed) raising the race card does absolutely no good to ANYONE and in fact it just breeds more hatred between people. Just like I did with the person above, I will outright permanently ban ANYONE in this site, regardless of status, who brings up the race card in such a manner. People coming from ALL OVER THE WORLD in here have cooperated for almost 10 years for stupidity like this to flare up, and I will not allow anyone to compromise the foundations of this site with stupid racial-hatred half baked theories.

Want to create your thread? Go right ahead, I will not prevent you from doing it, but regardless of your motivation, it creates clutter whether you want to accept it or not, and thus it creates more trouble and a large workload for our moderators. In fact, one of the threads that I was pointed at earlier today (GS2 Indian owners thread, I believe)... I have NEVER seen a thread that has been acted on as much as that without being a development thread.

If the moderators in charge of this sub forum stated that no threads like this would be allowed, then I am sorry to burst your bubble, but you cannot create them. And by doing so, regardless of your motives, you are effectively breaking site rules.

Well I've a simple and straight brain (call me an amateur/noob or whatever) and it tells me that a single thread with all people from all over the world will create more clutter than 5/6 several zone specific threads. And in case someone ruins that single thread it'll be closed and other members will suffer for no reason.
And if it's all about development or civilised mannerism, then may I ask how some topics are alive with bashing other brands in silly language and manner and no one is bothered about it?
Give me an infraction for this message, I'll be happily accepting it.
