It will bounce back. Or it won't. We'll all survive. I for one was going to leave for another forum, but decided to stick it out. Maybe some will come back, after they notice that the place isn't that bad. Granted, they haven't fixed anything after the first week of the launch (avatars still suck, skinny screen, quotes out of control, and the mobile version is too limited), but it's still good enough for discussion.

To fix the skinny screen, just press the Ctrl key on your keyboard, and then tap the + key until the screen fills up. That's what I do. It takes 6 taps of the + key to fill the screen on my desktop.
I've been thinking the same thing. Quite sad. I bounce around on a lot of forums so I don't have a high post count here, but I've been active at HC off and on since 1997.
This used to be the absolute go to place for musical instrument related info, forums, etc. It'd be sad, but I wouldn't be surprised if this site died completely in the near future. The handwriting seems to be on the wall.
A site like this just doesn't mesh well with corporate ownership. They just don't "get it". I really wish the site would be bought and ran by a private entity and maybe things could turn around.
I'm still lol'ng at how the vitriol-spitting douchebags from the old board seem to have picked up their balls and gone home. No more waa-waa-M123-won't give-me-75%-off-an-item threads. Bunch of crybabies.
I'm really disappointed too with the way things have been going here. But if you think the Guitar Forum is slow, the Amp forum is slower, and the Keyboard/Synth Forum is like a ghost town with posts on the front page from a week ago. I'm hanging in, though and hoping it will pick up.

With HC 2.0, I got pissed off with pages not loading, so i stopped visiting for awhile. I came back one day out of curiosity and found this new format. At first I wasn't too pleased with the layout and the different way of posting pics and stuff. But once i figured stuff out, everything was ok. The pages load so that's a plus.
At least you guys are back. Nice to see you again. We need your help for more new threads.Cheers

Just gets better and better.. I haven't been here/posted since 2/8, and it looks exactly the same. I only check back every couple days to look at the deal thread, but that's dead too. In Nov/Dec those threads were insane. Great job!
