I don't know why people don't just use this forum - great up time, better moderated. The only reason I go over to the microchip one is for historical posts.

The main reason would be that the people asking the questions are following links from the Microchip website, so they don't know any better.
They are then greeted by an unfriendly board that rejects posts containing images, code, or mentions Apple products, and often have to wait a few days for their first two posts to be moderated...
I guess Microchip had to buy Atmel to catch everyone who tried to escape that way :)

Yes, but there is also this thing where whenever the mchip forum goes down, some people shift over here, but only until mchip goes back up...It would be good if they stuck here.

Hi

Well, I just showed around, but not strictly because of the last oddities of the MCHP forum.
Been curious about since a long time, and finally decided to join.
But I'm not switching forums, just adding this one to my list.

I guess the issue is that most of the guys around here don't have many questions to ask. They more frequently repply/help to others.
Its only natural for newbies to start with the official forum, and, as long as they find the answers they need there....

Just my 2 cents .....
Best regards
Jorge

I suppose though that the more posts there are here, the higher up search listings it will get...

Now if all the regular question answerers were to go on a general strike ... ;)
