This is a message about Mac forum activity, information validity, and general help.
Personally, I believe that in order to attract more Mac Gimp members to the forum, I believe we should first update our stickies, and show that there is forum activity. Most of them were written Auria, who, while providing builds for quite some time, hasn't logged in for around 2 years, so I'd say the information is a bit dated.
Seeing as lisanet has pretty much become the main compiler of all Gimp builds (I'd volunteer my time, but building Gimp for Mac is NOT the easiest thing in the world, believe me, I've tried), I think maybe we should PM her sometime and see if we can't get some newer information to post here. Also, I believe the "Welcome and links" thread should be retired, and replaced with a new "Start here" thread. I'd volunteer to write it if that's what it takes.
If we provide up-to-date starter information, as well as common issues users experience and work-arounds, fixes, or other general help, I think we should be able to reel in a few more Gimp users from the Mac community.
