This is not a news syndication forum by surfichris on 02-03-2006 at 01:58 AM

I'd just like to let everyone know that this isn't a news syndication forum so don't post threads just quoting news items on other sites with a link to them.

It's fine to talk about technology news here, however if you're going to do so, actually make a contribution to the topic instead of just quoting another source and pasting a link to it.

Example of bad post:

Originally posted by Neowin
Microsoft has decided to drop it's flagship operating system including the predecessor to Windows XP, Windows Vista.

They've decided to switch to Apple's proprietary operating system, Mac OSX.

How to improve upon the example:
  • Add your own thoughts to the thread regarding the topic you're posting about.
  • Don't post it at all.
Cheers, and thanks for the party!
