I have noticed posters before, including myself, accidentally posting to Windows Vista. If you post from the main forum window you have to choose with the drop down menu which forum to post to, and Windows Vista is selected by default.

My suggestion to alleviate this issue is to have the default selection something similar to "Forum Selection" and if nothing is selected, then it will let the user know before posting.

A good idea, we'll see if that's possible.

Thank you.

This is yet another reason I like this forum and feel it is one of the best on the internet, and honestly should serve as a model to other forums. While The Geek and the moderators keep the forum up and running, I feel that all members have a purpose. The forum seems like a true online community.

I think that our #1 rule of "Be Friendly" has been the key... it's helped us attract a ton of really helpful people like yourself, and it's really all of you that make the forum great.

All us moderators do is just enforce the one rule. Also Scott does most of the work. =)

Just wondering if this suggestion was going to make the cut?
