I don't know what's going on lately, but there have been some posts on here lately, by new forum members, requesting help on "Linux Mint". So far, I've done my best to point them in the right direction... but I really don't want to have to do this every time (not that I have to do anything about it, but I try to be a nice/helpful guy).

Anyway, I was wondering if it'd be worthwhile to find ways to further dissociate the MintPPC distro and forum/community from "Linux Mint":

    *Not to be offensive, but maybe the forum banner and title could say:
      "MintPPC Linux forums", instead of
      "Linux MintPPC forums".

    *Place a forum notice or some type of a stationary graphic, under the forum banner, that emphasizes to all visitors that this is NOT "Linux Mint". (... though, maybe there could be a link to the Linux Mint forums underneath it too?)

JD hasn't been here since 6/26 and hasn't said anything since 6/5. I cannot make any of the changes you are requesting.

I am back from a long break. I could edit that picture if you really wanted me too. If others like to do it, go ahead. I am willing to upload it to the server.

Is there anyway for you (the admins) to put like a solid divider bar (green colored or whatever you want) between the stickies and the normal threads of the forum? I don't think a green folder with a spiral is enough... especially when the entire forum is sporting a green motif pretty much everywhere you look; a "sea of green" if you will....
