I also noticed the archives
are now gone
it's only temporary until they get this new platform totally functional, although if the answer is the same as all my past questions the archive is probably history
since no one
other than us old farts
care about electronics as old as 2006
hey man, get with the times, this is a disposable society.....
Kelson, you are entirely correct, by not logging on one is stuck with the even worse
but I suppose that's more reason to quickly browse and move on...
AFA updating old posts, I use to frequent another much smaller forum that had the policy of no editing after 20?? minutes, it sucked! If you posted something that was incorrect it was etched in stone(I suppose one could PM a mod to have it changed
) because of this restriction I rarely posted their, in fact just the other day I finally removed my bookmark for that site which is basically a death nail, if I don't see it I'll never visit it. I don't think I was the only one, at one time they had daily posts but within the last year (incidentally after a forum upgrade
) their traffic came to a crawl. Lately the DVDR forum part was lucky to get a post every other week and the little posts they had basically weren't about standalone DVDRs anyway!
Maybe because I posted so much I was invited to try AVS's new forum a week?? before it went live, it was there that I became aware of the upcoming no editing
policy upcoming for AVS and again unless something changes it will be enacted at a later date. As for the reason for our upgrade
... it was stated it was for security
apparently the previous version we used was very much out of date and prone to a possible
attack by some board teen residing in Hungry, Nigeria or wherever. Again a few bad apples spoil the bushel
