Forum feedback thread

Sagan advice.

Not sure why we’d change region forums without a lot of discussion. It is true thought that they are largely dead. A PNW forum could work with OR, WA and BC (maybe Alaska too). But we’d need to think about it.

Will take some time to get used to the new forum. A bit strange that I had to confirm my account/email after so many years here on RB. Still all my messages are gone. Hope they will come back.

And I really miss some of the old features, especially the watchlist…

Cheers!

All it is now is childish people trying to earn stupid badges. The forums are unreadable, un-followable and basically stupid because of this. It isn’t worth my time going through loads of garbage and idiotic stuff just to find what is worth reading.
The Forums have all become a bit pathetic.

Yeah. thats me. But thats not going to last. Most people that joined the trial will have half the badges already.

But i think there interesting threads out there, and the tracking system allows you to mute those you decide are pointless. Like you should mute Badges thread.
But follow one that may be of interest such as @lazypyro online shop thread.

You better start learning Dutch then, because on our regional forums there are some very interesting statistics on the decline of quality by de Molen during recent years.

Can someone explain to me, in really simple terms, how I selectively quote from a post I’m replying to? In the past I’d just edit out the bits of text of the original post that I didn’t want to appear in my reply. Now I don’t see the original post in the reply box so I don’t know how to do that. I assume that the Blockquote button has something to do with it but I don’t know what that means & I can’t work out how to use it.

Apologies for being an ignoramus but I’m not a techie type and not good with those HTML tags and what have you so it’s a bit of a mystery to me.

Highlight the wanted quote, click the quote button that automatically appears and voilà you’re on your way

Hitting the reply button circled red simply sends the user you are replying to a notification and allows the forum software to group replies together irregardless of where they are located on the thread. The reply button in blue is the general “reply to thread button”

:question: In the old forum threads/topics were closed automatically after 6(?) months. What is the policy in these new-and-improved forums?

Grouping replies are cool, such as this post from Marduk in this same thread

I can even link to Marduk’s reply, or start a new thread from it by clicking the link button below his reply
