While I do agree that there shouldn't be some "vip" forum, sheer volume has cost us quite a few of our older members who no longer visit the forum for one reason or another. After a personal discussion with one, they specifically cited the volume of "noise" generated on the forums as being a key reason they no longer visit.
It seems to me that there is a very LARGE number of older members who don't visit anymore. I have stayed off for a couple of years now because of the useless chatter that goes on. It reminds me of the cube4you forum at times.
Could you please tell me who they are and why they left? Either here or PM please Jin H Kim. I do miss all of the members back in the early years
In times past I truly enjoyed the highest item posts, and the true sharing of information that went on. Now it is too many useless polls and threads about the same things. (Really, how many v-cube threads does one forum need.) Yes, I ignore a lot, but it has become impossible to do a search for anything unless you know an exact quote in the thread. For example, I was looking for the explanation of how Thomas (was it you?) made his mini-domino. When I typed in mini domino, domino, small domino the response was 17 pages of junk to go through without getting what I wanted. Try typing in Meffert's and see what happens. "The following words in your search query were ignored because they are too common words: Mefferts diamond skewb You must specify at least one word to search for. Each word must consist of at least 3 characters and must not contain more than 14 characters excluding wildcards." Now I know it exists, but I have a feeling that just too much "noise" has been generated using those terms. That search worked five years ago or so. Not anymore.
Yea I hear you and I do miss the good old form days but what I'm saying is I'd rather have this form then none at all but I do not condone this behavior.
And as for Darren, I was number 13 and am not part of the DMB
Oh come on you joined 6 dayes before I did. Actually I was here from day 1 but I didn't post anything until April 22. So there!
