I own an HTC Mozart (WP) but I never browse through Mozart forum because WP forum is more than enough for my Mozart. The Mozart forum is a waste (at least for me).

I don't know if Playbook has been vetoed by the admins. If not then I would vote for it. Have look at crackberry.com forum then you will realize how many people actually own Playbook and how much development potential Playbook has. With announcement of LTE Playbook coming soon, I would like to request a forum for Playbook. I like, and feel lucky to be part of XDA forums and don't like crackberry forum much.

The admins are free to do with this site what they wish. It isn't a democracy. This is a privately owned site that you have the privilege of being a part of.

Assuming your characterisation is 100% well-informed (I'm doubtful), that's an unfortunate attitude.
It's not one that'll stand the community in good stead LT, as MANY more competing ones come online.

It's your own opinion, but we are adding the devices which show the greatest chance of development. Adding a forum here does not guarantee that it will be developed.

In my experience, on-the-whole developers are the users & users are the developers.
Where there's the most user interest, so there's typically more potential for an active dev/hacker base.
It doesn't always directly translate to that, but generally speaking that's correct.

If XDA is truly disdainful of interfacing with the unwashed masses...
Perhaps another approach is to have a voting mechanism where only active developers vote?
Ofc as already mentioned there could still be admin oversight & veto power as/when needed.
The masses could still have read-only access to the process ofc, to see how things are unfolding.

    This thread will be used to collect votes for new forum requests. A high number of votes does not guarantee that any forum will be added. The decision to add new forums is ultimately that of the forum admin. This thread will just give a general indication of the amount of demand for each device.

    - The most popular devices will be added to the poll. Less popular devices will be added to post #2.

    - If your device is listed in the poll, please vote. There is no need to reply in the thread.

    - If your device is not listed in the poll, please reply to this thread and state the device you wish to vote for.

    - If you device is listed in post #2 and would like to vote for it, please reply in the thread stating this.

    - All off topic posts/posts without a new device request, will be deleted.



    PLEASE STOP ASKING FOR GALAXY Y FORUM - WE ALREADY HAVE ONE HERE: http://forum.xda-developers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=1469
    EDIT: We're not manually counting votes anymore. Feel free to leave your "+1" posts in here, though, so it doesn't clog up the main forum with lots of threads.

    If your device isn't in the poll above, check this list. It is sorted by manufacturer so you can find it easily. Please simply +1 the device you wish to vote for.

    Devices with a low vote count will also be moved here after a period of time.

    1. I don't understand how to vote or check boxes. Can I PM you about stuff?

    Don't PM me for any reason concerning this thread. If you send me garbage in my inbox, I'm going to report you. Plain and simple. If I made some sort of error, make a post here. Don't PM me.

    2. How many votes can I cast?

    One vote per device, per user.

    3. When does the poll end?

    It doesn't. This keeps a running tally of the requests to the devices asked for. Popularity does not guarantee a spot in our forum.

    4. How many votes does it take to get a forum added?

    There is no set number. Ask an admin how they decide.
    See below for a quote on the subject from MikeChannon, who is a forum admin.

    5. Why did some other device get a forum when I think my device is more popular?

    Popularity alone does not guarantee a home for any device here. Other than that, I don't know. Ask an admin.
    See below for a quote on the subject from MikeChannon, who is a forum admin.

    As cajun says above.

    Please remember that popularity although an important factor in deciding if a phone gets a forum, IS NOT the only factor.

    We are likely to see more and more low priced devices around that will be very very popular (due to price) and we will not be adding them all if any!

    So in addition to popularity we consider things like the specs of the device, does it have anything particularly new to offer, are there existing or potential developers for the device (not just ROM cookers) and so on. This does mean there will be potentially "good" devices that we will not add. In addition of course we have to have regard to our resources. In today's world we could add several devices per week, but we would not be able to provide enough administration and moderation to keep things running at least fairly smoothly!
    Due to the enormous amount of "votes" being placed, the poll system isn't working, so please place all new forum requests in the following thread.
