I’m all for new things when they work. The delivery of this ‘forum’ is far removed from the basic intent of a forum. A forum is meant to engage ppl, easily, and help them exchange ideas that are pertinent to their concerns. A learning ground, a meeting place. This forum is not that, although it used to be that.
Instead it is disorganized to the point that a cohesive conversation is more work than it is worth. These days a Steinberg software (or physical product user) seeking help is better served by visiting YouTube or contacting customer service (if they respond in a timely manner). Is this what Steinberg wants?
There’s a great line in a movie where the heroine of the story delivers the start of her valedictorian speech with the line, “I’ve glimpsed our future, and all I can say is go back!” Good advice for the creators of this new forum.
