What Problem Did the New Forums Solve?
Given the overwhelming negative response to the new forums, based primarily on the loss of previous information, I have to ask "what problem was solved" by going to the new structure?
Surely there was something other than aesthetics that drove this decision.
Not only does this change force everyone to start over, it wrecks the Google indexes of common problems.
Now when I can't remember the tweak that iRite required or how to fix the screwed up Session ID in DFP, I can't query a previously solved problem. I have to re-invent the wheel.
That being the case, I might as well invest time in utilities that appear to be more permanent.
