I believe I already commented about the Forums some time back and expected that things would eventually get fixed. I am also beyond frustration. I've been forced to use Google to try and find topics in the forums as I can't easily navigate or find anything using the forum tools.
While this new Forum looks great, it is still nonfunctional for how I work and participate. I realize there is a learning curve for new tools but I've never had anything like this before in my 16 yrs of participating in open source communities.
It is really disappointing to see that @Nick is now so frustrated and that @Tony is stepping back. They, with a number of other key participants, have been the backbone of this community and to see that they are reaching the end of their ropes doesn't bode well.
I would like to chime in my support for getting the Forums fixed up as quickly as possible. These issues reflect badly on the community, organization and brand. This is after all an open source community and we need to be able to connect and work together.
I also think that the community has been a direct value builder to the whole Clear/Clarkconnect brand and business. Please help us to participate by fixing this quickly.
Now I press the green button and cross my fingers that my post actually happens. Sigh!
Oooeee! The new forum looks slick.
But I'm having problems getting my head around how to use it.
I've got 11000+ new posts which I don't seem to be able to mark as read; I can't find a way to access my notifications; I sort of lucked into finding my avatar page but was unable to update it. Oh it looks terrible now; ... sigh ... help.
Is there a HowTo somewhere? Please post a link as I'm having a hard time finding anything.
I was lucky to find this thread. Please move this to the appropriate sub-forum if the posting is in the wrong place and accept my apologies in advance.
Thanks ever so much!
