The Forum Nokia discussion boards are used by developers to ask and answer techincal questions related to developing applications for Nokia Devices.
Often times device specific qustions are asked. It is ok to ask these questions in here, however, for a quicker response you should try and ask your question in the approriate technology forum. Example, if you have a question about Java midlets, ask it in the Java board. Even if you question is about a midlet on a specific device like a 7210. The technology boards, like Java, are moderated by Nokia experts.
though its an open forum..it would be nice if nokia could appoint some moderators to filter out posts based on the contents and fiter the junk posts and repeat posting so that the forum doesnt clog..!!
also it would do well to appreciate people who reply regularly to the posts..there could be an incentive to have people replying..coz lots of issues go un-noticed..
nokia any comments..!!
The above position has now been filled and the person will start beginning of February. The recruitment took quite a while as the first selected person eventually withdraw at the very last minute (due to competing very generous counter offer from the person's current employer), and therefore the position was re-opened. Sometimes the value of the employee is unfortunately realized (and rewarded accordingly), only once they are leaving. But it was hopefully worth waiting as we eventually got even better person.
So from February onwards there will be a full time person to manage and moderate the developer discussion boards. The focus is naturally rather on the real MIDP, Symbian C++ etc. technical discussion. Not on generic discussion and usage of Nokia devices/phones. Note that for generic Nokia device usage and support there has been recently opened separate discussion board by Nokia http://discussions.nokia.co.uk/
