I really like these forums. They are an excellent place to talk/get decent IT information. I like them even better as they are not watered down with general chat type sections, with people talking about frivolous things like what they got up to last night or whatís there fav pizza topping.
Am I right in thinking that this 'Pit' place is/was some kind of General Discussion section? If so, I think this place is much better off without it - keep things in the coding/development areas of discussion and not try to be something which you arenít. But hey, I have only been a member 2 weeks
