Hello Acting Admin,
Someday I will get a T-shirt that says "Luke, I am your ADMIN", as we never know who they are.
Anyway, so I subscribed to all discussions as I am from the adesk world and want to help the bcad world.
Not that it matters, but I'm just saying these issue happen for all flavors of posts.
1) On new discussions, I get a double email every time, with the link in first email being bad.
This may be from people double posting, but I don't think so. Its too consistent, and many have learned not to double post by now.
2) The front page with various categories is so spaced out, that I think people are not using them like they maybe should.
I just noticed the Lisp Code one today when looking for a "contact admin" link. Could not find that so writing this post.
3) the formatting options for the actual post bodies are a little rough. I posted some c# code the other day with the statement #if, and it bolded it.
Stuff within a code bracket, which is single quotes as I recall, should be literal, not formatted.
4) and of course, the speed of posting is really awkward. I am finding myself scrambling to copy what I typed, right after hitting post, so I don't have to re-write my novels.
The current format has many good things too, such as the Discussions link that shows most current threads. I commonly use that when the email links do not work, or just to check in case I did not read some emails.
There are other things too, but I won't go on unless bricsys is interested in improving the forums.
They may have other fish to fry, but hopefully they realize they represent what is the main communication their competition uses.
The number one thing bacd is fighting against is people scared to transition from acad because they don't know acad itself.
If they see an easy to browse forum that is healthy and active, it speaks volumes over any feature you could add.
