      Has This Board Been Abandoned?

      Ever since the big fanfare of the relaunch, all the first time posters have vanished.  All the promised fixes have never happened and Jay has disappeared.  It is kind of a mess and not a lot of fun anymore. It feels like the whole deal is sinking like a sunset.

      Not sure what the issue is for posters.

      We were jsut speaking internally about the posts and how they seem to ahve dropped off, hope they get it back on track and it becomes a much better experience and place to conduct business talk.

      I've been with this board for a long time - even was a moderator at one point.

       

      Never give up on YNOT and the crew - they are family.  Despite the glitches the board is essential in an industry filled with random posters and wannabe hoods.  

      It's business at it's best.

      I have been so completely slammed with YNOT Awards and everything else I haven't had time to stay on top of the forums. For that I apologize. 

      I've also been away at a conference the last several days and got home last night.

      Once my plate is cleaner, you'll see more activity here.

      In the meantime you need to ride Connor about the fixes :)

      Hey Hardball ... since the launch, we have already released one major overhaul to the message boards system.  The current system looks nothing like the one we had at launch.  And the launch was just one month ago.  We're currently addressing some development issues with the Directory, and when that's done we can re-focus on the remaining forums issues.

       

      In general though, are there technical show-stoppers for you with the current forums?  We know there are features like editing posts and what not that are requested, and we'll be working those in as we can.  But is there a technical problem at the moment that's at the root of your post, or were you just mainly reacting to overal activity?

      I have not seen any show stoppers, but it does make for interesting reading when some of us post, since we cannot seem to type letters in the correct order ;-)

      So the edit feature would make it so much nicer for those of us that FAT Finger the keyboard a lot.

      I am looking forward to a lot more activity on the board!

      I also would love to see  a delete post option ! The preview  post doesn't work when you are using bb code :(

      Actually, yes.  Logging in is like swimming in syrup.  There have been times when it has failed a few attempts and I leave.  Fix the log in issue and it would go a long way to making all this more pleasant.
      BTW, this semi inflammatory post was only made to shake the tree.  Which, fortunately, seems to have worked.  I love this board and hope to see it swimming along trouble free.  When the medium gets in the way of the message though, you do have a problem.

      I use to check in and see what was going on several times a day on the old forum. Now that I have to click log in links 3 times to see this forum I only check it once a week or so. Frankly it's just not fun anymore.

      The new board has been difficult to adjust to but once you work with it for a while it works great.

      Before threads was open , meaning no need to login to see what happens. It is kind a dissapointment to login to see there is no new posts.

      The global login needs to be streamlined so it is easy to log in and once logged in allows you to pick if you want to maintain your log in status even upon exiting the page.

      It is still not clear if there are new posts (IMO) when you view all the threads.

      I am hoping this place takes off in the enar future as I like the level of help you can get or use to get when asking on this board for help.

      I am still here at least 1 time a day but would like to see a lot more participation from others in the industry.

      Hope they promote it to the right people, work out all the kinks etc. in a short amount of time.

      So that explains how many times I see you change an empty glass for a full one. Looking for perfection  :-)

      Hardball, you said logging in is like moving through syrup... I assume you mean you're encountering latency or slow response times?  I haven't heard that particular issue from people really and it's lightning fast for me to log in.


      Or did you mean something else, like you just don't like the process?  Any clarification would be useful.  I'm wondering if it's a latency issue due to your geographic location.

      Logging in every third or fourth time is syrupy enough for me.  I doubt there is a latency issue in vancouver.  My download speed is 125.47 mbps and upload is 16.76 so the connection is solid.  But sometimes it just hangs.

      Prolly not, considering I have been successfully in this business for 18 years and you don't last that long without adapting.  I do know, that most boards I go to are fluid, easy to use, quote, access, and edit.  And there is a difference between over engineering and changing.  This board has a bunch of bells and whistles that no one will ever use and perhaps that is what is causing your issues.

      Okay, so then you're just referring to the process of having to log back in too often affecting your flow.  Understood.
