To be honest, I doubt this will happen so don't get your hopes up.

Although I do think it's a good idea.

But David likes everything to be nice a neat looking. Which is a good thing. So adding a section for everything makes the forum messy looking.

It's not so much the idea of how many people have them so much as the potential for how many people may join if we knowinly accept macs.

That's exactly right, Macs are computers, this is a computer foum, we already accept Macs, because (as you said) Macs are computers too...

It's the Mac owners who are choosing not to post Mac questions here in the relevant sections, and hence it's their fault that there is not more interest in Macs here.

but since that is locked, I'll bring the last salient points from that conversation into this conversation...

Possibly because theres no where for a Mac user to talk about mac's?
well perhaps if mac users coule look at the box and see a computer then they would realise that therey are welcome in the computer forums general computer hardware/softwaer section...

I don't think that there is anything on this forum that speifically says PC...

perhaps if Mac users stopped segragating themselves away from other people then there would be more mac users.

We already have a Mac area, it's called General Computer hardware and software, feel free to talk about all computers there, whether they be macOS based, Windows based, Unix based, Linux based, Novel based, RISC based (shall I go on? -should we be creating sections for all of those?).


Say it loud and clear... Macs are computers, if you ask a question about a Mac, the Mac users of this forum will try hard to answer your Mac questions.

If the questions don't get answered then it simply means that there is very limited Mac expertise on this board in general, and a new section labeled Mac isn't going to suddenly bring in the kind of expertise you're talking about attracting.

Exactly, since this is mainly a PC forum.

Who is going to answer all the mac questions and problems? How many people on here know much about macs? Not me, I've used a PC my whole life.

If you want to talk about mac's or have a problem with your mac, I would suggest going to a mac message board.
