I presume this is directed to me? if so, answer follows... if not.. my apologies.

To answer the question as to why I haven't done this.. simplest is.. I don't have a Playbook. Add to this, of the 3 BB_OS Mods, 1 is removed due to absence, 1 transferred to Android device & 1 is MIA, presumed having a good time. Like most of the Moderator Team, I am no BB_OS specialist, so we can only apply General Forum Rules until such times as one appears & can work more closely with the PB Community.

Excellent question.. I'll be +Repping you up as soon as I finish this epic tome ...

OK. I'm not 'bitch-slapping' or putting anyone from PB Forum down.. but I feel I need to go right back to Basix here ..

2 things make a Forum Zone work.
  1. Members
  2. Content


Members we got. Thousands of them

So Content is the issue. We ask that games/apps are posted in such a way that members can access them from here and share information/feedback/knowledge about them here. If ppl just come here, get handed a link to a list and only come back when a URL dies.. how do our members find out about playability, compatibility, resolve installation problems, ask questions or even hit the Rep button to say Thanks ( just posting thank you is spam IMO.. always give some feedback about the app/game! ).

Take a look in [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] & [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].. some excellent threads started by iSin & others, although it seems to be many views/little rep.. ( clearly the leech is strong within you, young Jedi! all to common these days, unfortunately ) Still need to increase the use of mass-mirrors for sharing/caring though...

Ideally, apps/games are posted as [Only registered and activated users can see links. ].. anyone posting Requests should be directed to the appropriate Thread OR if app/game is not here & you have it.. make a new Thread for it THEN direct them to it. Hiding it away in the Request thread for 1 or two ppl is ludicrous; it's a wasted opportunity to share with all of your community.

This way, we get a sharing circle
  1. Thread count grows =
  2. App/Game availability grows =
  3. Feedback/User Experience grows =
  4. Reputation grows (hopefully) =
  5. Inclination to make new Threads grows =
  6. BACK TO 1.


Honestly, if everything takes place in just 1 or two thread, it's not just a mess but
no-one can find anything
reposting gets out of hand
flaming starts due to 'why don't you Search' fever...

A useful feature of Thread creation is TAGS.. adding useful tags makes Search more efficient
Use words from app name ( Angry, Birds, Angry Birds )
Use Software Dev (Gameloft, Rovio, Epic)
Use app descriptors (platform, movie player, audio)


If BB_PB stays in the 2 Request threads then it serves little purpose to the members and eventually gets downgraded to a 'minor product', shoved in the corner of the iPmart® Forum basement.. Please don't let that happen...

It maybe sounds like we want the moon on a stick to some people, but trust me... it isn't all that difficult to start a thread, add an image and add a couple useful tag words..... and uploading to a mass-mirror site takes just as long as a single Host but you get all those other download links to tickle the fancy of a members preference..

I'll leave this thread open for comments.. but remember: 1 man's comments are another man's insults.. troll/flame at you own peril
