People who post on the forum are dwarfed by people who read the articles in terms of numbers. :)

More useful is a guide on how to remove windows 8 to enable windows 7 installs or any installs for that matter.

Man these spammers are geniuses...put (NO SPAM) in the thread title to hide the spam.  It's brilliant.  Hopefully this doesn't catch on...what if rapists wear signs that say (NOT A RAPIST)?  They will be raping everybody! D:

There are people who've never been to the forums but may have visited OCC 1,000 times or only visited it once and just happened across the guides, articles, reviews via a search engine.

If you see the cops - LEAVE.

If the cops are coming - Don't be there.
If you show up and the cops are already there - DISAPPEAR.
Anyplace the cops are and you aren't, is a good day

:yes:

One recommendation I'd like to make on the guide.  Please add a sentence or paragraph that tells the user to disconnect other storage devices except for the one that will hold the OS.  If you have multiple hard drives in your system, Windows will want to write some boot files to one of the other drives.  If you pull that drive, reformat that drive, or that drive fails you end up with a non-booting system - even though the majority of the Windows install is on the primary drive that you specified.
