...moved to Gentoo Forums.

Your thread about DRI had to do with X, and therefore fell under the guidelines of the Desktop Environments forum:
Quote:
XFree and everything that runs in it


This complaint falls under the heading of
Quote:
Having a problem with the forums?

...which is why it is now in Gentoo Forums.

All Things Gentoo gets too much traffic, and Naan Yaar's move to Desktop Environments ensures that other people now and in the future who are having problems with DRI and X and who browse the forum related to their concerns will see your posts and benefit from them.

As rac mentions above, the Destop Environments forum pertains to: "XFree and everything that runs in it; from window managers to applications..." DRI clearly falls under this category. Finding moved threads is a bit of a pain, but it makes it easier to find things when they are in the right forum...

You can follow all threads you have posted to by following the "View your posts" link on the Gentoo forums main page. This will work regardless of where your thread has moved.

Additionally, posting in the right forum in the first place also helps :).

It's the (thankless) job of a moderator to keep things on-topic and flowing smoothly. That means we move posts when we think the topic is more appropriate in another forum.

You may not agree with that decision, which is fine -- life is about choices and we all make different ones. I suggest next time you send the mod a private message politely raising the issue with them rather than posting an OT message to the wrong forum.

Another way to do this is to use the ability of the Search feature to limit results by poster. For example, searching for posts containing "dri" by "dcstimm" brings up exactly two results for me - that thread and this one.

I find this tactic extremely helpful when I'm trying to find references to things I only remember as "delta407's install cd bailout", "Naan Yaar's undepended package checking script", "phong's bootdisk howto", etc.
