I’m sorry for posting this, but I have no idea where to post anything or to find any meaningful content anymore. Perhaps I am missing how to browse based on vendor tags, etc. The old forum was 100X better than what we have now, I cannot find a single discussion that I am looking for. What was wrong with the forum where you could actually find relevant topics? Sure, the page layout on this is “simple”…but actually participating and helping the user community is not.
An example of something I cannot find that used to be easy would be panel vendor specific content, there is not a single way to even find just posts related to ADC, my Qolsys panel, or my previous 2Gig panel. We just have one massive jumbled pile of noise, how is this progress? If the search was even remotely accurate perhaps it would be less of a problem for finding prior content (but still impossible to find relevant topics you can contribute to)…but, just try to search for the “master firmware thread” for Qolsys IQ2. The search is horrendous, no ability to control what is searched for, sorting (e.g. by date!)…why would I want to look at a firmware post from 2016 here in 2019?
I have yet to find a single word salad that finds anything meaningful. If this is the permanent new forum “design” you will lose any of my participation going forward, as it entirely alienates your user base. Every good forum at least needs to be broken out by primary subject areas (just like this one used to be!).
