[quote user="lithorus"]Don't get me wrong. I really want to have this forum working well.[/quote]That's what we all want.
[quote user="lithorus"]However as the poster pointed out, simple stuff which would help immensely have yet to be fixed/done.[/quote]I believe that's also what we're all trying to move towards - getting these forums in some sort of usable format but it feels like an uphill struggle at the moment. Things that were simple like replying to your post now requires several steps to get to a point where you can actually quote it in a reply, it's not obvious at first glance and requires too many mouse clicks to get here. Take your pick of any features that we used in the old forums and they're missing e.g. code tags, formatting a reply, previewing a reply (or post) before hitting submit. It's the silence around whether the (missing) features will ever be implemented that's somewhat disconcerting.
...high-scale brand/design tailoring may be "enabled" but if no one in charge gives a hoot about it, we're all just stuck with this stupid "out-of-the-box settings are all we feel like fooling with" forum.
And the 'with time the search will get better' promise leaves a lot to be desired. I used to be able to search for valuable information on the forums, and now it returns very few useful bits. I get more hits for user manual and official wiki pages, but they often are not relevant to the search. I miss the google index on the old forum that just plain worked.
There's also a maillist for developers:
Wow, just realized that I cannot switch to rich layout if the original post was not done with rich layout.
The notification popup (the little flash icon in the top right) doesn't allow opening in a new tab/window ... *very* ugly for power users.
However it's not very clear whether or you have highlighted the link to the user profile or the thread.
And why do I get notifications on my own posts????
yet again, a new post just vanished ... looks lik ethe system suffers from Alzheimer ... ;-o
