As Photopost is expanding, maybe it's time to reorganize the forum alittle bit?
For right now, you have General Discussion and How Do I forum for all of the product, it would be better to split them out, each product has it own section of questions, I think
My suggestion is:
Content visible to verified customers only.
- The "How Do I" Question is splited into each individual product (posts can be moved accordingly)
- Add Troubleshooting and Problems to each product. Right now, when people get problem (not actually bug), they have to ask in General Discussion, which might not fit, and it'd be easier to ask and answer, if you have question about each product seperately.
- Add Template-Styles, so that member can share different templates/stylesheets that they created. it'd help people having different templates, that'd meet people's demands. Hacks on templates can be added here or in the modifications section.
- Internationalize photopost, Language section for member to translate, share more languages.
All other products will have about the same structure, for consistancy. More or less depends on individual product.
would like to see a healthy hacking scene on here. Organized and categorized to all the different kind of hacks would help too! Photopostdev.com wasn't very great place at all. I posted til no end to get a block for phpnuke and no one would respond. I eventually made one by myself from bits and pieces I found on the net.
I thought about Requests, but it depends, we can use the level1 (Add-on-Hack-Mod) for request and discussion too. if we have a seperated request section, and dont have enough people to write mod/hacks, support those requests, then the requests forum will be somewhat ... not very productive. you know what i mean.
I dont like the way current "unsupport" threads are. Many of them are discussion, with some solution, rather than hack release. It's very hard to follow, or search for hack/addons, or apply one (as many of them not documented clearly)
Do we also need a sub-forum for VB 3.x / 3.5x ?
How detail would one go ?
I dont think we need these.
vBgallery can have different sections for vB, but Photopost and other product aint support only vB, and we cant have sub-forums for all kind of forum that PP can integrate

You should have join the hacking, and share what you made yourself. No one is actually responsible for working on the requests though, esp. NOT the support team. That's why it's called "unsupported".
Well the issue always with any community like that is you need people that actually can make mods.
Photopostdev.com always suffered from a huge amount of requests but not enough coders to assist.
well, then trying to have more people that can make mods to join the community (and stay active in the community).
This isnt an easy thing to do though. I really hope we will have a strong community here, that can help eachother to develop photopost and its hacks
