    Is there no link to on the main page or anywhere for that matter to go back to the sister forum, the windows 7 forum?

    No love for vistaforums, although I think she is dead and in her grave. Might as well merge Vista with W7. lol

    Yeah I did think about it, but it's so quiet now that people have moved on to 7/8 - it's primarily just an archive now, although there are still the occasional questions there :).

    Yeah, its the occasional question that could probably be answered on a forum with more traffic. As it is hardly anyone logs in that could answer the majority of questions, which leaves them unanswered.

    Would be nice if the link opened in a new tab or new window instead of taking you completely away from win8forums.com.

    OH well, there is always the back button I guess.

    I prefer new tabs instead of new window, but thats just my preference.

    I'll see if there's a way to make it open in a new window, but I don't think the forum re-direction comes with that feature. I'll have a little explore :).

    edit: Doesn't looks like it's possible, but I'll submit a feature request to the forum developers as I think it could be useful.
