Default Re: Sub Forums

The sub-forums were a good idea. But I don't think a distinction between the Official/WHQL Forceware Drivers and Beta ForceWare Drivers is necessary. Put yourself in the position of posting a driver related question.

First, I need to determine what drivers I'm using. Then I need to find out if they are official or beta drivers. Too much work.

Similar threads are going to be split between the forums. For example, if I have a general question about a feature like antialiasing or Digital Vibrance. Does it really matter what driver I am using?

What would you suggest? If we created a "Stickies" Forum, no one would ever read it.
