    I, too, have noticed the lack of activity on the forum. Not sure why, but I do have my suspicions.

    Well, don’t be shy… Let’s hear those little pearls of wisdom.{#emotions_dlg.mathews_green1}

    Well, I think Rabbit has it. Adding to that, the formal appearance of the site as well as all the blank space makes it feel like you need to have something really, really important to say in order to post.  Of course, that leaves out most of us.

    Then again, it might simply be the amount of cumulonimbus clouds floating by lately. I don’t think people post as often when they feel surrounded by denseness. {#emotions_dlg.mathews_nerd}

    I’m trying to make a go of it here, but for some reason this place just lacks the homey feeling the old forum had.  I can’t quite figure out what makes it feel so impersonal here.  It just does….{#emotions_dlg.mathews_crying}

     

     

    You make some good points Jeeper…  Especially about all the white space.  Kinda like a hospital ward now.  And sooner or later I’m afraid it’s gonna need some CPR…

    It is just the format.  It isn’t really inviting; instead it is factory-like, and makes you feel like you’re associated with a huge manufacturer rather than a friend (commercialized).

    I’m going to suggest that we engage in a mild protest against Mathews………Let’s not tune our bows for several months.

    For me the forum is slow at times, it don’t load at times, it logs me out at times. I’m running Firefox. I don’t care for all the white, or the general layout, either.

    I still check the forum, and post here and there… not that I ever posted much anyways.

    I have found that IE10 loads the pages faster but my work computer with any browser is slower. Worth a try for anyone but has worked pretty fooled for me. And you will not lose your favorites.

    I agree with everyone. Just seems like an awkward date where your waiting on someone to break the ice so we all can start laughing.

    For me, it’s that the forum is still running slow and a bit of a pain to navigate.

    The look is still not great, but that not why I don’t post much.
    It’s the speed of navigating the site.

    I still check in once a night. Hope it still improves.

    Right now it’s loading quickly, but 30 minutes ago it was taking almost 30 seconds to load the front page. It did that a number of times for me, and all other websites were loading just fine. There definitely appears to be some issue with the server or with how the template draws from multiple sources to assemble the page. Odd that it only seems to take place intermittently.

    Well I think I’m gunna say that since Neil left we lost about half of the total posts.

    For me it’s this place just doesn’t seem like home anymore.

    It was getting slow on the old forum as well…  It is changing, it always has been changing.  Odds are it will continue to change.

    Ive just been busy with work and the kids at home.  To be negative I would say its all the issues with the new forum.  I will say that the forum seems to be loading a lot faster than it did at launch.  It still has its bugs though.

    I check at the bottom to see who has signed on and the list is usually very small – no more than four. When I’m on I’m reading to see if there is any more new threads or posts. That’s taking some time. Since the change over there is no other way to accurately check my posts or threads on here like the old forum. My Mathews home section most of the time does not come up.  I can see why it is slow and Larry is right “the end is near”.
