20th May 2012 10:42I thought it'd be nice to discuss the many problems we have on this site now. I really miss the old ISS. Everything ran smoothly (as I remember), and there were few problems. If there were problems, they were fixed ASAP. We are now nearing the one year mark of "Sole Collector 2.0". The MAIN website, I have no problems with. It's great, much improved from the old one.
That being said, the forum is in disarray. There are so many technical issues that have been brought up in the Feedback thread, but it seems that NO member of the staff even takes a look at it. It's like the only major thing you guys have fixed was the youtube tags.
Here are some problems, or just some features that I'd love to see brought back.
It's damn near impossible to find your own posts, because it takes you to the beginning of the thread. Do you know how difficult it is to look for a question you asked in a popular thread? Another problem would be the coding for signatures. In the past, the (color)(/color) worked just fine. Now it's broken. Mine still works because it has some random numbers after the tag, and I'm afraid to mess with it because I don't want to mess it up. Another constant problem is the spammers. I don't think we've ever had a problem with that on the old site. Also, what happened to .gif avatars? It would be great to bring those back. This has been brought up, but I don't think anything's been done with the scammers on the site. In the past, these members would be punished very swiftly.
That's not to say improvements WERE made. In hindsight, merging the Movies and Automobile sections was an excellent idea. If we had not done that, the activity in those forums would be next to dead.
It's really a shame, because I've been part of the ISS community for so long. Could we get an answer as to when we can see improvements? Or are improvements even BEING made.
Others members, especially the older ones, I welcome you to chime in as well.
I guess what I'm trying to say is .. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it."
