From a cranky old man

Complete noob, so sorry if I offend, but I’ve spent decades on various forums, and I’m sorry, but the layout/format of this one sucks. It is ponderous and very difficult to navigate, and especially finding sub forums I have been too. Like, where is 'Introductions"? I posted there earlier today, and it doesn’t even show up in my ‘activity’.

As I said in one of my earlier posts, all the LB problems, and now this forum issue is not confidence inspiring. I do not need the headaches of forum navigation added to all the apparent setup problems I seem to be in for.

Hmm. I’m a cranky old man and have spent decades on various forums and I thought this one was relatively easy to use and navigate. I guess it all depends on what you’re used to.

Sorry it’s such a headache for you. :frowning:


As a VERY cranky old man, it beats VBulletin into a cocked hat.

Don’t you see this as your front page?

Yes, I do. Where’s ‘Introductions’?

I’ve no idea. This is a software support forum, run by the software company, isn’t it?
