4 days later, lots of questions, concerns, and issues posed by the community.... And not a single response from Adobe.. this rollout should have started as an opt-in redesign instead of a sudden forced adoption. Some people rely on the information in these forums for work.. Lowering the information density and restricting the filtering methods has a real impact on the amount of time it takes to find some information..
Please just go back to the old version and make this one an opt-in so that people can explore and give feedback.
Agreed. I spend a lot of time in the Acrobat Standards and Accessibility group and posted several functional issues of the new site in the Topic's Welcome thread asking for feedback only to get two generic replies then the thread was locked a few days later. This now, to me, works like a quick IM app rather than a tool to search through or post technical issues for forum regulars to easily find and provide detailed support that users may not be able to find elsewhere. Every feature that I try to use only hinders my efforts to do either. Very frustrated with this, and to be clear it is not a nebulous "I don't like change" type of complaint. Change is good. This, however, feels as though it was designed with one goal in mind by developers that seemingly have never used a forum before---or at least not the previous version of the Adobe Community Support Forums. I have to hit reply now because if I hit Enter for a new para break it will auto-post. Too, I can't edit for **** in this mobile IM app single line of text reply box. UGH. Reply then Edit Post. Lovely time sink we have now!
On the plus side, I am getting a lot of forum trophies!
I wish I had the time and got involved in the ACP testing of the new forum whenever they were announced and stuff.
Umm. I wish I had somehow been able to back up the entirety of the forums from the beginning of time due to the priceless code snippets and technique descriptions. Illustrator is one thing, I've been mostly keeping up with it and know a lot of the "dos and dont's" by memory - but it's those ID and PS posts from super long ago, even obscure Bridge posts - what a trove of knowledge is now scattered among the stars!
Bonjour, c'est peut être moderne mais à mon avis pas une réussite...
Je voudrais savoir où est passé l'espace forum en faraçais ?
Je peux même pas corriger le texte du message précédent,
c'était l'espace forum en français ?
Est en plus c'est très lent sur une connexion ADSL.
Though I haven't the experience of old forum yet I find this format a good one. Change is the part and digital community. I appreciate the new look with exciting features of this forum. Apart from that, i am very much excited to join this thriving community. This part of web is just amazing. I love illustrator and wanna make it my career goal. Thank you Adobe for creating the opportunities in this world
If you do not have experience in the "old" forum please think twice about complimenting the new forum. For we who rely on this form the change is a disaster.
