    I like learning and as technologu moves so quickly I like ot keep up to date but put some fun into it.
    I'm not hear to obtain new business people - I am a supplier but I cant advertise because I'm not sponsor.
    lol its called the art of sales without selling hun you dont need to advertise to generate a sale

    I really hope it doesn't become more social. I'm fine with using it to increase professional contacts but I certainly don't see it becoming a "professional" site (whatever that entails) with the current direction.

    Sometimes it's positively cringe-worthy and I just can't be bothered to sift through the crap to get to real IT issues.

    I don't have facebook and and more than happy without

    facebook = social networking
    edugeek = forums (technical forums at that)... have you noticed that these posts everyone is referring to have all happened in "General Chat"? Cant really get any more general than what's been going on.

    Sure the posts in general chat are getting alot of attention... but so are the x number of technical threads too.

    It would be a shame to see members like DMcCoy put off the site as people like him make valuable contribution to the technical knowledge of the site. His posts have helped me on numerous occasions.
    Shame is too soft a word actually, it would be a real blow to the site.

    For my tastes, the site has become too socially slanted recently. It is frustrating to post a question about a technical issue you are having to see it quickly slide off the front page due to the "Have you seen this amusing website" and "Lets have a chinwag about some trivial issue" threads and thus not have a great chance of being answered. I am not saying that those threads don't have their place but shouldn't overwhelm the genunine technical questions that people need help with.

    Haven't voted in this poll because there is no 'I REALLY Hope not' option.

    General Chat - From what you think about Billy G to what you think about your favourite beer.

    That forum makes NO claim to be for professional discussion, so what's the problem? If you don't want social chat, stick to the technical forums, it's not difficult...

    maybe update the front page to ignore general chat forums? Or have a separate box for the threads from those boards?
