[request] Rename P2P Forum

I propose we rename P2P forum to Filesharing Forum to accommodate all the programs that are not really P2P but are also used for filesharing like IRC. It would seem more correct.

Seeing now that discussions include IRC and usenet, I'd have to agree.

Suggest for clarification that the name be: Internet Filesharing Forum

Making that distinct should prevent the LAN filesharing questions you might get if you don't make the difference clear.

*sign* at a name change. But may I suggest something else that would keep out the constant "Where can I get this W4R3Z from?" type questions?

Maybe 'filesharing protocols' or something that helps focus the topics?

We've had a sticky for months: »Everyone READ this.

LOL read it yes. That's the kind of thing I'm referring to. What I'm suggesting is setting the tone of the whole affair from the beginning - most people who post desperate "where's the warez" type questions don't tend to read stickies.

It may reduce the mods work load.

This sounds like a separate request and a good one. You should speak to the Forum Hosts or start a new thread for it if new Warez topics are an issue. Maybe they should have a splash screen with posting rules that they must view before getting the new topic posting screen in that forum.
