Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

Please put non-A/V topics (audio-only, h/w, computing, etc.) elsewhere

I just moved a lot of threads that were about audio only, were about computer hardware (perhaps we should have a place for that?), or otherwise had no relation to A/V away from page 1 of this subforum (I daren’t look beyond there!). Not only do such topics go against the description of the subforum, but you’re hindering yourself by posting in a location that seems to receive considerably less traffic. So, for everyone’s sake, please consider whether your thread is actually related to audio and video—or at least video!—and post it in a more fitting location if it is not. Thanks!

Aaand I just moved the first page worth of non–news-related threads out of Digital A/V News (most to General A/V but a few to General Audio, Audio Hardware, etc.). Is “News” really that difficult a concept…?

I guess it’s pointless to go and move any older topics, but if people would actually read and consider where to post, that would be great. Even if you don’t care about keeping things tidy, you’re probably halving your readership by posting in lesser-used sub-boards such as these if you don’t have to.
