    Is it just me? I prefer the old forum a zillion times over and now I only come on when I must. I never sign in smoothly, there’s always an issue signing in and it’s simply not as smooth to navigate anything or find things.

    bah

    This one kicks me out more often so I have to sign back in, but the sign in process works fine for me. It seems more robust than the old software. I like it.

    The software might be robust, but the forum is dead. Apart from a few users.

    The new forum is as dead as the old forum had become.

    Ya, I miss the old forum in many ways, but then again, jeez, there was so much attack and snark whenever anyone deigned to venture an opinion. Yikes! It did not make it easy for people to join in, especially those of us using our real identities. I do think though that the positive comments did outweigh the negative, but the tenor and tone of one negative could wipe away quite a few positive ones. Sigh.

    The snark was entertaining and was somewhat engaging. Toward the end it was insipid and this is downright dull. This one had something the others didn’t and pls note the other forums are gone for the most part — this one appears to be on the way out. Which is a shame for the people who sell advertising for it, the less activity there is the less they can charge. Long live Cesar!

    What is interesting is that the GS said they changed it in part to allow new subscribers. But it seems that many from the “old” forum, who were posting up to the end, have not joined in. Even Penny seems to lack the energy to post of photo of Emma. And I do not see many new posters either.

    But I find the login and other aspects very easy. Not that I found the old one hard….

    I have seen comments on the home page where members on the old forum are having no luck with joining the new forum.

    Mars Hill, dramatic decline in attendance and giving

    Read it in the PI:

    Mars Hill megachurch lays off employees, makes intense appeals for money

    Where’s 1der and who is he anyway? ;)

    Wasn’t that the record thread ever? And outside of the first screen or two ….

    Well, it was the longest thread because it was mostly people posting YouTube and other videos. I don’t think the 1der question was ever resolved. Penny seemed to know. Oh well, whatever. I would like StopGo to show up too. Maybe rescue a stolen dog or something.

    I found this new forum very easy to join and I am usually challenged by technology.

    It was my who is 1der? music thread. A bit of an in joke between me and GG. Second to that in length was the footie thread. Only a few people participated in both, most of whom are long gone.

    I love that I can see who started the threads, here on the new forum.

    Hi Penny!

    There were several epic threads. Cesar too, I kind of miss Cesar and the garnish….what WAS the garnishes name again? Doug11 with the hot girlfriend, the list goes on. The basketball one, I keep looking for that game and haven’t found it yet.

    Hi Folks – Here is my 2 cents, or 1p pence (in current GB pounds sterling)
    An online forum is only what the participants make it! So if it is dull and boring- spice it up. One good thing that the GS did is add some filters so that the idiots like cesar and fabio etc can’t get on here and if they do it is not for long. These community forums are a great way to connect with your neighbors and inform each other about things that are happening locally. One can also have discussions about interesting topics and local events. But if you want to harass people and argue with and insult other people there are a lot of forums on the web that are there specifically for that, so if you want to do that go out there and find them.
    Personally I am happy with this new format the way it is, I also think that if you want to spice it up you probably could but the “trolls” that used to catch on to that stuff are filtered out for the most part so here we are. We have an opportunity to create a community forum that is both entertaining and informative to all of us. Can we do that?
    And it is FREE! Thank you Geeky Swedes
