Hmm, the distro section in the profile messes up if you have more than one distro listed. Is there any way to change this?
Also, I think you said you were working on it, but distro's displayed on the viewforum page. Eg, on a post.
Thanks libervisco.

speaking of distros, it

speaking of distros, it might be better to have a selectable list of distros, maybe the top ten at distrowatch, a bunch of other notable ones decided by *to-be-decided*, and "Other" plus a "comment" field. This way, the distro "cloud" mechanism gets more significance.

It is possible to implement

It is possible to implement OS drop down box actually. I just tested it and it works perfectly.

The downside is that if something isn't in the list people wont be able to select it and I'm not sure how would a comment field work out. If the user selects "other" the "Operating System" in their profile will simply say other even if I add an additional comment field where they'd describe the "other".

So not sure right now, if you'd like this to be changed like that I can do it without much hassle thanks to Drupal.

At least I can scoop all our current users to see what they use so I include at least most of that in the drop down.

Would be good to hear what others think too.

So, what do you think about

So, what do you think about this in the end? Shall we have a drop down or leave as is?

I want to make as many tweaks like this as possible soon before the new Nuxified announcement.
