    Hi guys
    Why dont we have a seperate folder for topics under Database Designing Issues.
  2. dineshasanka Moderator

    Good suggestions

    Any design issue may fall into the exisiting categories like performance , developments, DTS etc. That may be the reason why there is no seperate folder

    I have a split opinion on this. As Dinesh already said, this topic is already covered by several other fora here. So it might prove that only a few people actually post their question in such a forum.

    I feel idea is good to have separate folder for db design issues.
    That we should even have separate folders like:

    SQL Server Setup issues.
    Database Maintainance Forum.


    So how about these two as right now we have these kind of questions falling in General category.

    I don't think it is a good idea to have another section to cover those areas as referred by Frank & Dinesh, most of related questions can fit in current sections.

    Yes its good idea to have seprate folder for desing / setup issue becoz it could be easier to find / post questions / answers with such sections, Else if it covers under current section as Satya says..

    It is rare to see that a new member will be such good mood to select the criteria of question before posting, every month 15% of my posts refers the same to suggest originator to post in relevant forum section and move the thread.

    I believe Brad will go on adding another section if majority of members are inclined to have so.

    Actually you can "normalize" the fora as much as you want. The real "pain" is to normalize the members that they post in the most appropriate forum. To say the least, this might turn out a quite difficult task.

    Well<br />There is already a seperate section "General Developer Questions" where I think all questions can be asked if the poster does not know where to post it and I dont think there should ne seperate section of DB Design [<img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-1.gif' alt=':)' />]<br /><br /><br />Madhivanan<br /><br />Failing to plan is Planning to fail

    yes as there are mixed reactions, he will have the final say
  14. bradmcgehee New Member

    Gee, I don't know what is best. I would actually lean to adding these topics as it would make it easier to find what you are looking for. On the other hand, getting people to use them is another story. Let's see some more discussion, and then I can decide. See how I am delegating these important decisions to others. <img src='/community/emoticons/emotion-5.gif' alt=';-)' /><br /><br />-----------------------------<br />Brad M.

    Why not make a "salomonic" decision? (Hope I can say so)<br /><br />Why not setup such a forum and give it a test period of say 1 or 2 months and then see how things are going? If you decide so, I would opt for moderator.
