    Well i was cycling home from my cousins i was thinking about how we can help noobs and people who are having trouble without having to start a million threads for each person.
    So what i came up with is a part of the site that you can interact with mods or me about problems you are experiencing with your iPod or other related issues.

    Hopefully a mod will spot this and take my idea into consideration

    Why do this when we have the forum "iPod Touch Help"?

    That's the point of the forum to interact with everyone in order to solve the problem. I seriously doubt you and the moderators will know every single solution to a problem that one is having.
    It seems like an necessary amount of stress, inefficient, and a waste

    it is almost the same as a thread, the main difference is that it's sucking up bandwidth.

    i think we should have a shoutbox. could be really necessary if you cant find what youre searching for, and dont want to skip through hundreds of threads.

    It's eating up bandwidth. It won't be implemented.

    It's not really practical. There are truly only about 5 or 6 active mod's in the english section, and they are hardly more then 1-2 of us on at a time. It would put a big stress on the us trying to look at reported post and help someone Jailbreak there iPod at the same time, don't ya think?

    I think we should have a tech help 'team', with something in teh signature of each member to let users know theyre in the team. Then they can PM one of the members

    What constitutes a respected member? Who would be the judge of it, bgizzle already has enough to deal with. Post count doesn't matter, anyone can get 1000, 2000, 3000 posts just by spamming as has been seen.

    It's best to leave as is.
