    Combining Mac and PC Forums?

    Does anybody else have this problem?  I am on a Mac platform and find myself only reading the Media Composer Mac Forum. I always think that I'm sure there's lots of important information in the PC Forum as well, but I rarely read it.  I wonder if at this point in the development Media Composer and the use of universal Intel chips, if it doesn't make sense to just combine both sections and maybe have a color code or something for each Mac or PC type of post.  That way we'd all be able to see all Media Composer posts in one place.  Or maybe I could just remember to read the Media Composer PC Forum...

    Possibly. But I find the Active Topics link the one I use most. Gets me all kinds of topics I would not actively had sought for.

    The problem I see regarding combining the PC and Mac Forums is when issues are reported that wind up being specific to either PC or Mac platforms, but not to both.

    I see that as a bonus to helping troubleshoot.  

    I vote that they be combined as well.

    Re: Combining Mac and PC Forums?

    My original thought was that it would be a plus for both forums to combine them.  So I'd say it would be a bonus.  There of course may be other thoughts or issues, but it might be worth a look.
