So I guess the big experiment to rename this forum 'disk op system' thereby hiding it to keep it pure has been a failure:

I'm sure there will still be some degree of mis-posts (just as there are in other forums). But hopefully the name change will at least cut them down in here. I still think a "warning message" at the top of each forum (especially this one) would help cut down on mis-posts.

DAVEINCAPS,

I made this change as a response to the requests in this thread. Seems like we've gone full circle. We'll see what happens.

Yeah, I think it's better this way. Seems like we were getting just as many mis-posts with 'disk op system' as with 'dos'. I think most of the time people are led here by google and just post in whatever forum it leaves them.

Hey,

That may be right. However, if that is the case, no name change will make any difference :(

Justin, can't you force a poster to choose a forum from a list BEFORE they can post? At least they will then realize there are multiple forums here.
