A few weeks/months ago we were brought into this current forum. At that time I posted that with the new forum layout that we would likely lose a bunch of folks. In reply, a particular mod of the new forum said wait a while and it would be alright. I waited and it is not alright.
So far we have lost a large number of folks. Many just don't drop in and post anymore. Some post here and in another particular forum, where I sometimes go, it is a nice place. And some post on the other forum and say they will never return to this forum. Worse yet is that we lost two very nice mods.
I don't know what all the anger and fussing was all about and probably should not care. What I want to encourage is for those that are willing to post here, and be helpful on the Hints side as well, please do so. The way I see things is if the forum and folks are pleasant then stay with it.
It is sad to lose all those nice folks and do hope that those who are still posting here will stay. And I hope that some of the stay away folks will eventually drop in and share a howdie with us. When MystIV releases I hope to play and then become a Hints type helper there as well as remaining a MystIII Hints helper too.
Any newcomers feel welcome to browse and post. Existing members keep posting and continue your friendly ways. Drop outs, reconsider and come back to share a howdie if you choose. We will be glad to see and hear from you if possible.
This new forum has been as exciting as a cold shower compared to the previous forum. The format still is overdone with unnecessary 'features' and the quality of service has been very questionable - lost links etc. - but it is what we have. So, to current users and those that have left, let us see if we can overcome the forums deficiencies with lots of friendly, supporting posts, among ourselves.
See you posting soon.
