Forum Recognition

It's a mystery to me why the Peppermint Forum doesn't get more recognition. As good as the distro is (and I do like it) I dare say that the forum is better. The quality of the forum assitance is easily beyond simple linux help. In many cases it's practically linux computer support and the forum is so well maintained that I routinely use many posts as reference information long into the future. This forum resource combined with the exceptional distro is what makes Peppermint so good for me.

Cheers for that Scott, I'm pretty sure I can talk for the whole team and indeed the wider Peppermint community when I say 'it's the occasional post like this that makes it all worthwhile and very satisfying' :)

I've said it before but it's worth repeating, we're blessed with some great people on this forum .. so let me echo your sentiments .. Well done Peppermint Community, you're what makes Peppermint great.

TVM :)

It has been mentioned in the past, especially back in the Peppermint One and Two days.  The forum was actually praised in some articles for being a place where you can ask just about anything and get a quick response, plus this forum has never tolerated bullies.  Someone tried the "I'm smarter than you so I'm going to code bomb you" deal that you see elsewhere back in the early days, and they were quickly chastised by the staff.

However, as time goes by, I think it's just become the norm and one of those things that it's easy for people to overlook when doing news, reviews, etc.  I personally think this forum is one of the greatest strengths of the OS.  That's why, with all of the Linux distros I've tried over the years, some of which I've even joined the forums, this is the one I've stuck with and the only one on whose forum I'm active.  It's a great forum, truly indicative of the OS as a whole.  :)

Well said Scott  ;).  The forum is just as important as the OS itself.  Whether it be for the casual visitor, or for the Peppermint die hards.  The level of assistance is consistently excellent for everyone.  I believe the quality and style of any forum gives the user a pretty good idea of how the distro is going to behave  ;).
