    Hello, ipodtouchfans.

    You know how you can specify your iDevice on the site, which makes it appear below your avatar? Well, how about having a Specify your Computer box under your avatar?

    It would help in ways such as...

    and..

    It would also be quite helpful to know in other situations where users need help..
    Plus, it would be quite interesting to know

    I hope you like my idea, and if you do decide to use the idea, then I will be glad I helped to contribute!

    Nice Idea.... Also specifying the tool you used next to device would be nice.

    Or people could put them in their signatures if they wanted. It's a good idea but I think it'd look too cluttered.

    Yeah, but the likelihood is that a lot of people won't actually put in their signatures. And it would look quite nice

    I think that is a great idea.
    Well, you would need to type in the info yourself, so that you get a perfect match.

    Thanks! It would also help on the Post Your Desktop Screenshot thread, when people ask 'Windows XP or Vista or 7?'

    Well, this is 'multi touch fans', and the people who ask these questions should specify what computer they have in their post. And if they dont, there are plenty of people trying to get their post count up. Its not that big of a deal.
