Could it be possible to add a Morphos-section so that I can just tick it off and don't have to read about it? I understand it's hard to implement new features, but maybe within a month? It's beginning to be quite difficult to spot the real Amiga news in between all the Morphos and Pegasos chit chat.

Own Morphos-section : Comment 22 of 60ANN.lu
Posted by Christophe Decanini on 25-Feb-2003 13:31 GMT
I think that Christian's view of ANN is a site who put together all Amiga related news.

If you never noticed 95% of the posts are done by ANN users. ANN is what the users make of it. Sometimes we have good posts, good debates, sometimes we are ashamed to see how "free speech" is used to provocate, insult ...
The point of the categories is not to sort by subject. I think its main now is to filter the unmoderated and forum posts.

I'am surprised that Sinan excluded MorphOS posts as he had good posts on LinuxPPC for example. My opinion is that MorphOS is one of the system used in the Amiga community and that we don't need to fragment a small group once again. MorphOS may not only be that but there are definitely a lot of people reading ANN interested in it.
There are other sites that are more dedicated to a single system and they are welcome for the people seeking for such sites.
Even if ANN is where the heated posts happen it also give the oportunity to have some good debates between the different groups. It is better to have that than for example (only) dedicated sites to each OS where people praise their side and deny the other without any communication happening.
This notion of belonging to a group is not necessary percieved by everyone. There are still some objective people who see these systems as being tools or hobbies and who are not belonging to any group.
These groups are certainly causing the platform destruction to a certain extent because at the end there are aggressive reactions against all the companies still involved in this small market. The people in these companies are often pissed of to see how they are treated despite their efforts.

ANN has other advantages like the fact that someone can post about his software release here and have several people running his applications on several Amiga or Amiga like operating systems.

As an ANN user I like to see all posts to know about different systems. I don't want to be limited, or put in one "box".
What happen in a community when someone start to sort all groups and separate them ? Isn't it much worse than when they are all living together ?
