Since the inception of this 'new' forum, much delayed and much anticipated, further delayed etc. I post very little.
I find that it is not user friendly, even being pretty au fait with using a computer myself; it does not have the features that are available on other forums, hence I do not know if you have been a member for some time or not by clicking on your user name, so don't know if you knew the previous forum format.
My OH, a PWP, could not contemplate using using this forum with all the clicks necessary to get to the main forum. It's, IMO, a travesty of the money spent on it when, off the shelf, FREE forum setups have more features and a user friendly format. I do know what I am taking about as I use such a forum on a daily basis. Heavens knows how much PUK spent on this sad excuse of a forum.
So, Ali, the first thing that needs to be implemented is making it easier to access and user friendly; there are still thinigs that were promised for this new forum that have never materialised but were requested by members, Maybe then it would be more 'inviting'.
Lily, I don't understand what you mean. The only 'policing' that I see is an all too often presence by Admin.who feel the need to post on a frequent basis. Fine if it's to do with a query and to direct a member to where they can find help, but NOT to join in on any thread, unless that thread, or a post on it, contravenes the T's & C's.
There, enough said, I shall probably get my knuckles rapped again in another e mail from Admin.if I say any more.
My last post a few minutes ago was timed out for editing when I wanted to correct a few typos as I type at speed. God help a PWP trying to edit a post with such a short time constraint!!!
Hope you all had a good Christmas and wishing you a very Happy New Year.
