    The text all looked fine to me, unless you mean you're still working on the definitions of tasks.

    I keep forgetting we already move DEV branch to 4.20.y, but haven't tried H6 support yet. Porting to 4.19.y ... not sure if there is a point in that and if I want to get my hands dirty

    New features and restrictions for "Technical support" area:
     
     1. Validating users, those who just register are unable to reply to topics. They are forced to open a new topic.
     2. All users have to accept conditions (cookie last one day): 1. Call to use docs and search 2. Call to support us 3. Call to provide info
     3. Each time a topic is created, you need to add: armbianmonitor and accepty several conditions
     4. Auto lock topics is now set to 365 days, pinned and featured are exempt, ... and it will take a few days before locking will be completed.

    Agree. It's a step forward if there is a field ... it has to be optional and we have solved this problem.

    I am torn about this. For various you may not be able to generate such a link. Like network issues (you still get the output but not the special link), I/O issues or boot issues.

    I'm not a fan of this idea.. For sure it would reduce the support 'pressure'.. But I think it may also scare away the good people..
     
    most of the support questions can be solved with google *fill in your preferred search engine*.. maybe we should encourage people more to use it.
    tags could make sense.. e.g. in the sunxi.. where people must decide between H3/H5/H6 flag them with different colors and make H6 red..
    this would simplify things a bit..
     
    can we enforce an other input field where they've to post their armbianmonitor link? at least for those opening a thread.:D

    Agree. This has to be used very carefully. If at all.
     

    That's a good idea. I'll check if that is possible.

    Level between development and stable is hard to define. To be more precise, IMO they match H3 levels which also have certain problems and shortcomings. Despite that, those boards can be used in production. Major problem in this sense is actually on the H3 side due to "power-off" problems.
     

    Prefixes are supported by the forum software but we don't use them. They are only used here: https://forum.armbian.com/forum/26-research-guides-tutorials/ but also without any proper meanings since all subforum is anyway dedicated for Tutorials/Research. 

    If this feature is not strictly used, it's pointless to have it there. And someone (which is not me ) would have to manually resolve prefixes for at least last two pages of topics.
     

    Agree. In this sense it might be worth to think about merging "Armbian build framework" and redirect the rest to the "Technical support area" or "Peer to Peer" if it has nothing to do with Armbian.

    Another option to limit pressure on support is by enforcing forum payment system. System is here, it's highly integrated in forum ... and it works. Not exactly to charge for support but to return a pressure back.

    The questions which come up in the 'development' forum are anyway more like the average 'supportquestions' there's not much a difference... IMO development was never used the way it was supposed to be used..

    could we 'switch' the behavior as well? E.g. default is mainline kernel and subforum is outdated 3.4 kernel which is only available for H3 anyway? Some kind force that people should move to mainline..

    Thanks. I saw the applied patches for testing.
    I read your links and realized that it is customary to make changes in a separate branch and then pull request. 
    Of course, first we need to discuss with the community the need to develop new functionality. I will do so in the future.
    I'm currently laying out a number of patches that I think are the most important. Although it is not a tradition.
    You can apply them on your own behalf, after testing, if you see them reasonable. I don't claim authorship.
    Thank you for your understanding.

    I can share the fact that I've not resolved the H6 issue freezing at "starting kernel", I've even tried them with 5.0.0-rc1, still the same.
    If someone can help narrow the issue, I will be glad ...

    H6 can be created with NEXT now in as is state, but has to be enabled/added. If DEV is broken for some boards now ... that is not an issue.

    after searching the internet we have to do it the blacklist way

    for every module you doenst want to load create a file in /etc/modprobe.d with the name <modulname>.conf that will include the line
    blacklist <modulname>
    like that :
    /etc/modprobe.d/xradio_wlan.conf : blacklist xradio_wlan  
    If we do this for all 3 modules we get:
     
    root@opi-zero(192.168.6.99):/etc/modprobe.d# cat xradio_wlan.conf mac80211.conf cfg80211.conf blacklist xradio_wlan blacklist mac80211 blacklist cfg80211 After a reboot the modules arent loaded anymore
