Browsing the forum as it is at the moment is just... Not worth it. It's too annoying. Each 30 seconds connection is lost, then you're randomly kicked out and have to login again but each time this happen there's an unnecessary captcha to make things even more annoying.
I really want to browse the forum, there's lots of interesting stuff but I guess people won't have this bs for much longer. Just close it already until it's fixed or at least revert it back to the old one. If it's so hard to fix make another one, I'm sure there are lots of people here who would gladly help with that, myself included.
I sadly agree. The forum is pretty much useless now. It's a real shame, because it used to be that people posted lots of thoughtful comments--some gay-related, other household hints, etc.
It's especially tragic given that occasionally there would be a post from someone, likely young, experiencing serious depression and seeking support, or at least conversation, from people in the forum. This new forum software has likely destroyed that mechanism.
Even if things got fixed, I think enough people have been alienated from the forum that it will probably never return to its previous value.
