  2. ..just wondering why the blue, "members" designation is not in the color coded legend; they're the majority, after all. :p

    Phases could I suggest that you rename the additional Non-US Classified section to include two under Europe and Asia specifically, The whole Non US thing kinda promotes this idea that the forum is generally for US users and all others are second class guests. Just a thought.

    Also I would like to suggest that in ROM Developers section you add in parenthesis next to the developer what phone's they create ROM's for because it has people confused and it wouldnt be a good idea if they start flashing Droid ROM's on Ally's or something of that type.

    Good point. Will ensure developers are clear in their ROM titles/posts what phones they are for.

    Umm, well I haven't checked on it in a week or so, but last I heard the developer was taking a couple weeks off for something and that it's pretty much in alpha stage.

    We MAY release it to premium/staff for alpha testing - and AF members for beta - before putting it in market. Or, save beta for the premium/staff testing.. I dunno.

    We don't wanna put something out there that isn't decent, no matter the stage. :)

    I heard a vague rumour that maybe people at the Phandroid live event got a sneak preview.

    Don't know if it's true or not.

    I do, but I haven't listened to the last weeks worth of TT or Phandroid podcasts.

    That's why I've only heard 'vague rumours' :p
