    This has really gone out of hand. It is unbelievable people are causing this kind of chaos rather than waiting another 3 DAYS! Incredible impatient people that are ruining this forum.

    Mods, can you sticky this thread so threads like this won't add extra clutter.

    i feel for the mods; let too many similar threads go, people complain. merge threads, people complain. somebody asks to have a thread stickied, somebody else complains.

    honestly, between the stickies and the search feature, it's not that hard to navigate.

    So assuming as some people are - that this RC is, or is REAL close to whats gonna be released, you would rather instead of ALL of us testing it and finding small problems/glitches/changes, and making them known, just be released as is then YOU and anyone else waiting on the official, have to deal with it THEN? You should be thanking every last person testing it, just imo.

    Are all you "beta testers" filing bug reports on the issues you find with Sprint/HTC or just bitching about it the forums?

    Did Sprint/HTC ask you to download it and be a beta tester?

    I don't care if you think it is right or not to have downloaded and installed what was leaked, but don't act like you are doing me any favors.

    Thanks to all for your concern, but the staff did this for a good reason. The threads concerning the 2.2 update will be 'unstuck' as soon as it materialises and is no longer a hot topic.

    Yeah I know, I know. :eek:

    Well, its usually not that bad in this section until recently.

    Which is why I had to merge a few together and sticky them. I will be going through and unsticky a few (see below) and leaving only those really needed. There is a all forum specific link that is sticky and should be the one members look at to see what thread is the one to post to, but as usual we are an inpatient group and feel like quickly posting instead of looking if its already being discussed. Its not easy keeping track of you folks, be we do the best we can and in the best interest of the forum.

    So this is how its gonna be from this point on... (see next post(s).

    And I bet if someone gave you a million dollars you would spit in their face too? Just seems pretty self centered imo. Yes, I have reported EACH issue I personally have had with this "RC". Also, other people here are reporting problems, on sprint and HTC forums, have you been to their forums and seen peoples posts, some of which are from this forum? Obviously not. Have you done anything to help people testing, troubleshooting and fixing issues people are having with this RC which may/may not be the same as the release? Obviously not. Just seems ungrateful imo, to basically come and turn your nose up in the air at EVERYONE here trying to help, that is all.

    I personally would like to take this space to thank each and every person who has spent any amount of time trying to fix/help EVERYONE here with any problems in the RC and prior. Thank you.

    is that a command or a request?

    Either way, I am leaving it open in the event others want to discuss the structure/move of the threads mentioned above. I do not consider myself Mr. Know it all and thus if I erred in moving, sticking or unsticking any one of the above threads by mistake, then by all means I want the members to either post up in this thread to discuss it or pm me.

    That's a great list, we ought to sticky it so others can find this faster :D (sorry, couldn't help it).

    Some of us do believe the stickier it is the better...;)
