    I've been having this problem for at least 3 or 4 months. Maybe longer. I don't even remember. But it really sucks.



    If there are any people who left this place, it's probably mostly because of it.



    So remember: if you're going to type a long message, let's say to a friend on here, through that (incredibly ridiculous) messaging "system", copy and paste the text into a word program *before* you hit "submit".




    That is why I've been using the "copy before post" method for over 6 months. I only do it for posts over 2 lines.

    You don't have to paste it to Word since it will stay in the paste buffer until you copy something else or your computer crashes.



    Sad times indeed...
    I synth, therefore I am.

      Hang in there, gang, things are about to change. I know the forums have sucked on and off for quite a while now, and I don't have an official timeline, but I know that we're going to be dumping the old vB stuff for an entirely new system, one with a proven track record on other high-volume sites.



      Why it's taken so long to get there, I have no idea.
      Hurrr. Derp, derp, derp.

              Not to bust your ballz, but let's recap the timeline thus far:



              1 - Forum 1.0 - solid. worked flawlessly

              2 - Forum 2.0 - sucked for different reasons (like the new look and feel), many people left

              3 - Forum 2.5 - reversed some things that people hated, nobody came back, HUGE problems began with availability issues, lag despite less people use it

              4 - More than 1 year passes with these issues as less and less people use the forums meaning it's clearly not a problem with traffic

              5 - Forum 3.0 is coming? Ugh... Things CAN get worse ya know. It's been a trend here to get worse at EVERY "improvement."







              I SAD.

                  Because the owner - Musicians F(r)iend - has placed higher priority on sales promotion using the Harmony Central home page than on the discussion forums.



                  Based on their deployment of HC 2.0 and higher, I have zero faith the forums will improve.



                  Until MF sells HC, it won't be the community it once was.



                  This is not aimed at the moderators BTW.

                      I think we all remember when this forum was hot. You'd have to go to page 9 to find yesterday's posts. Now it's GearSlutz, KVR, Synthtopia, VSE, Electro-Music, and a bunch of others.



                      Gearslutz is always about some bit of pricey analog gear, "Should I buy a Jupiter 8 or an OBX?" or some X vs Y vs Z synth comparison. But what I really don't like about GearSlutz is that there is more focus on gear then the music that the gear produces.



                      KVR has always been a software site, and that's cool. Synthtopia and VSE are pretty mellow forums, but slow. I haven't spent much time on Electro Music although I do like their DIY-ness.



                      Still, I like the company here. Plus, I play bass and guitar, so I browse those HC forums too.

                        Even if you didn't, if you went to another forum, you'd be the newb and wouldn't know anybody. And after you started to learn everybody, you wouldn't like any of them any better. We all may not all get along, but we know each other and have for a long time.



                        Plus, there aren't many forums that would allow a thread like Hai Guyz (well, when EP isn't throwing his moderator weight around to close it).



                        So, is Musician's Fiend the reason this forum sucks or the sysops?

                          Hahahaha. THAT's how BAD this forum is: either a reply doesn't get posted OR it gets posted twice!

                          You left your ISO on Auto. That's a no-no.

                              And, right on cue, I see the forums are in total Suck Mode today. Ugh. I can't say I blame anyone for giving up.



                              As for blame: It's corporate. Admins have been screeching for help just as long as the rest of us, and the suits have been, shall we say, "less than responsive."
                              Hurrr. Derp, derp, derp.

                                Believe me EP, we know YOU GUYS, the guys here in the trenches who are ALSO users themselves, actually care. I just hope the mopes in charge realize that the forums are what bring us here. If the forums go away, this site will die. It's pretty simple.
