As one of the admins here, I will reiterate this point. As a policy, we do not delete or edit posts that are critical or negative towards Roku. The only instance where posts get deleted is when users go out of their way to insult other users. Even then, there is a lot of leeway in these cases. Probably too much in some people's opinion, but the point is, as long as people post responsibly, opinions, both positive and negative are welcome here.
I have been very impressed at what you allow to be posted. Very open. I really don't see the need for any other forum but perhaps some do.

to those of you who see no need for an "unofficial forum", i agree. don't think of http://www.reddit.com/r/roku as an unofficial forum per se, but more as an online hang out to trade articles, ideas and gripes. give it awhile to catch on and i'm optimistic you will find it worthy.

cflat wrote:why not? variety is the spice of life. i already go to four websites for my roku info. why limit yourself to one? i do admit that this one is the best one though.
as far as reddit goes, i like the format. i already use it every day. it may not be for everyone.

use it however you want. this forum is fine but it's always nice to have an 'unofficial' place to talk about things where you don't have to worry about the owners of the product moderating the discussions.

Your own little UL just for this site.
But seriously Roku does not truly let people speak their minds.
If they did they wouldn't be locking up threads nor removing posts.
I do agree some threads have run their course or become redundant of other threads.
Still people do want to keep posting on them.
Anyway do you really want an internet where there is only one site for each type of forum ?
