View Poll Results: What kind of forum should it be?
- 108. You may not vote on this poll
No read access, no write access, no new thread permission. Only admin and mod can report of it.
Read access. No reply access, no new thread permission. Read only.
Read access. Reply access. no new thread permission. Read and Reply
devs who are already trusted get permission by admins and new ones have to be admitted by someone who is already trusted. (IŽd call it Gentlemens Club, thats how they work, and be honest there are no chixx around here^^)

EDIT: +1 for Devs get to Post/Make New thread. Everyone else = Read Only.
I mod a forum myself and in the interests of keeping everyone happy i would suggest:
PS3 Development Category
--->Dev section (no access to any1 other than devs)
--->Update section (acess to all, only devs can post)
--->Testing section (access to all, any1 can post, however spamming of this section should be punished to extreme measures)
Just my opinion on what will work well.
Devs have their section for a technical non interupted discussion of works in progress.
Any updates devs want to give us can in an update section so we can see yet not comment on.
When upcoming projects need testing they can post what needs doing etc.
Anything that goes past testing can go into Latest News or something.
EDIT: Looking at the Latest News... maybe... we need a section for releases aswell.
PS3 Homebrew Release Section
---> Payloads etc
---> Backup mangers
Just basically a way of tidying the place up a bit.
What do people think?
I agree 100%

Its good that people, well you at the moment do agree,
would be nice to get the feedback of zaxis graf etc and ofc the staff, as they will have to do the work to accomodate this .
i hope graf_chokolo is the real one and an ps3 dev section like Goon3r mentioned would be great!
i agree.. but what of people who have genuine issues/ problems?

we just need to stop all the offtopic posting and spamming thats all im sure that there are many helpful users out here.
ESPECIALLY THE OFFTOPIC YOUTUBE VIDEOS/PICTURES ETC DEFINATELY NEEDS TO STOP
EDIT: i think i may have misunderstood lol.. another subFORUM for dev's... should be read only then (dont laugh people didn't read the forum part before xD)

I definately would like to see this and left open for public reading only. As for controlling it I would consider what some other forums do where you have to show and provide actual code that you are working on to the admins. Any one who provides code that is not there own, a proper branch with permission from the origianl autor, or spams gets a instant ban be it timed or permanent.
