I guess they will.
I browse http://discussions.europe.nokia.com/discussions/ every now and then, trying to get help concerning my S60 phone. The overall attitude there is much more negative towards Nokia than it is here. Still, it's on a nokia.com domain. Therefore I doubt we'll see any change here.

(BTW: I hardly ever get help over at dicussions.europe.nokia.com, while it's a pleasure to be here at ITT. Interesting to compare the two.)

As a long term user I don't have any constructive ideas - obviously I'm pleased for the people involved whose efforts and work so far are now being rewarded with income and, I take it, salaries.

But for the forum itself, "sell out" springs to mind. The important thing about it to date has been the fact that it WAS NOT official. In fact I remember the excitement around when it became obvious that certain Nokia people were getting involved in posting.

With admins, mods etc how can it continue to be perceived as an "honest" refelection?

For once, I'm actually looking forward to a post from Karel!

Let's have in mind that maemo.nokia.com will be the new official Maemo site, while *.maemo.org is moving as we speak to a 100% independent and community driven site.

Sponsored by Nokia (funding the hosting, the independent maemo.org team and some special projects requested by the community) but without Nokia's ownership or decision.

Could the internettablettalk.com domain remain active and point (or redirect) to the same place? There are lots of links in bugzilla, mailing list archives, blogs etc that will break otherwise.

I"m happy for Reggie and the site. I'm also happy to see some improvements coming like more admins and moderators. I just hope we keep a minimal theme in the new look.

I suppose since Nokia is not calling the next device an Internet Tablet, a forum called Internet Tablet Talk doesn't make so much sense anymore.

The addition of moderators is a welcome addition, and is long overdue. What process will be employed to appoint moderators? The coalescence of the community aspect within maemo.org, and its backing by Nokia is positive in my books. Support from Nokia means that Maemo has a future within the giant Nokia machine. Thanks Nokia, Maemo and Reggie/Roger for this exciting development.
