amd x86_64 forum section depreciated

Postby wolfden » Fri Dec 30, 2011 7:30

I dumped the posts that were in the amd64 forum into the archive section and deleted the amd64 forum. It's pretty pointless to have it since majority of people are in 64bit mode now. Just use the appropriate forum for your discussion.

Thanks

Honestly, I was thinking this needed to happen for about 6 months now. Good move, I say!

wolfden, it would be worth doing -- for consistency if nothing else -- something similar with the SL Italian-language forums.

Currently there is a 64-bit SL forum and a 32-bit SL forum:

Sabayon Linux x86-64 Linux Forum
Tutto ciò che riguarda le versioni a 64 bit di Sabayon Linux DVD e miniEdition

Sabayon Linux x86 Linux Forum
Tutto ciò che riguarda le versioni a 32 bit di Sabayon Linux DVD e miniEdition

You'll have to consult a native speaker, but my suggestion would be for you merge the two into one as follows:

Sabayon Linux Technical Forum
Tutto ciò che riguarda le versioni specifiche o su architetture specifiche
i.e.
Sabayon Linux Technical Forum
Everything about specific versions or about specific architectures

The Italian section has been updated accordingly, rather than creating a Technical section that would be easily confused with the General section, it was decided to merge the 2 architecture specific sections with the already existing General Section, creating other more specific ones about newbie questions and desktop dependent issues. Thanks to wolfden and Fitzcarraldo for suggesting and helping to realize this. I'll take care of moving the already existing topics to the appropriate sections over time.

I'm browsing via a machine running Vista at the moment, and cannot enter the two sheds 'Sabayon Linux Area Principianti' and 'Sabayon Linux Ambienti Grafici' unless I log in to the forums, whereas I can enter all the other sheds without needing to log in. The problem occurs in all browsers. I have not tried on another machine yet, so do not know if this is a universal problem. Is there some phpBB setting for those two sheds that needs to be changed in order to allow visitors to browse the two sheds without having to be logged in?

EDIT (January 4, 2012 14:40 UTC): I am now on my main laptop running Linux and can confirm that the same problem occurs. Presumably it must be a phpBB setting than a forums administrator needs to change?

I confirm the issue reported by Fitzcarraldo, unsubscribed users should be able to view the topics, but currently can't.
