Two months in.. how do you like the new forum?

Strange. I’m on my desktop. I wonder if there’s a difference in how it searches on the Android version.

Searches such as “Surface Laptop Studio” don’t show this site in the first ten pages, but if you try something more unique…

DuckDuckGo result for ‘dstraussing’

BTW looks like (edit: apparently not) any thread title that has a question mark at the end adds an option to mark posts as “solution”. Any way to disable that for a thread that doesn’t need a solution?

Maybe if we try hard enough and make this go viral in social media, Merriam Webster will add it to the English dictionary?

I double checked and that’s not the case.

Time To Think Thick? - Technology / Platform Advancements - TabletPCReview Forum

It’s only if you use a tag associated with the QnA plugin in the admin settings, like the tag #Question.

Hmm… so what activated it for this thread? Every post here shows the option to mark as Solution. Maybe only the thread starter sees it?

Summary

Ah… this setting under the site feedback category did it.

Here’s the much more appropriate Google search result for “destraussing”

Yes, they use Bing. As do Ecosia.

Both are a bit dishonest in that they tout themselves as if they are independent search engines, but they really aren’t.

And we’re on Google. It will probably take a couple weeks for us to get fully indexed, but we are now starting to get integrated into their search engine.

Random note, (a) I guess the asterisk is only visible to mods, indicating “check this thread out”, and (b) Hey discourse, that’s not how you spell “reviewed”.

Edit: I fixed the tooltip text, love how easy it is to customize this entire forum :+1:t2:

I gotta start being more active here.

So I recently got a new job…that the past decade of being in our little tablet pc community has more or less groomed me for in a weirdly perfect way. Its kind of like Tech/Product Support for sales, but with a focus on a specific brand that for now will remain nameless. Love the job, but I haven’t worked a steady 9-6 in a good while, and I am not a morning person. Once I get more adjusted to my new sleep patterns, I’ll try and be more active on our new board.

Congratulations! And thank you for our new favorite game, “Guess darkmagistric’s brand”. :yum:

As @SteveS recently pointed out to us forum staff with the link above, it is now okay to scrape forum content wholesale. While we as forum staff won’t necessarily be scraping content right and left, you as forum members can feel empowered to restore content wholesale to here as you feel so inclined.

Not sure if you still visit the Categories page, but FWIW, I just upped the number of recent posts shown per category to five. Hope that helps surface some less active threads.

Sounds a lot like a role that I’ve had multiple times, and I think my favorite, Sales Engineer or the more trendy title Solutions Architect.

Regardless, congratulations and good luck!

Would it be a horrible heresy to the history of the forum to alphabetize the three tablet categories and so bump Apple above Windows on the homepage? :rofl: Not saying if it also has something to do with @dstrauss ‘s move to Appletraz…

Kind of! :sweat_smile: How about Apple-Windows-Android? The Android category seems to be the least active for now.

Yes.

Yes, it would be heresy. There are still far more Windows tablets than any other (for productivity at least).
