Apologies if this has been asked before, but is it possible to get a troubleshooting forum? Right now requests for help kind of clutter up the General forum and can sometimes get lost in the sea of other topics.

Can you post me a link to a couple of threads that you are thinking need to be in a trouble shooting forum?

These are just a few, I think there are many more that apply:

I'm not saying it's super important, just that these threads usually get fewer comments than other threads and can get buried (if they're in the general forum) or not noticed (if they're in a device-specific forum).

In fact, I just realized that one of those threads covers an issue that I created a new thread for. I didn't realize because it was in the Surround forums and I rarely if ever go there because I have a Trophy.

I get that this can be tricky because people often post issues in the forum for their device. I could see that causing some confusion. But for issues that aren't clearly limited to one device I think it can help if more people get their eyes on it.

Very good points all of them I am going to have to think about this for a while. Windows Phone brings a new set of challenges to the forums. With other OS's most all issues are device specific but with this OS the devices are so similar that many issues are not. The challenge is deciding which is which and where to post them so they can easily be searched. Hmm... Going to have to noodle this one for a while.
