One thing that confuses me about these new forums...

Given that one of the reasons this forum software was picked was supposedly "high usage volume by the Adobe community." (Is this true?)

Isn't it a little odd that something with all these bloatware features (and JavaScript on the front end) .....actually won the competition???

I mean, if performance was a top priority, shouldn't we have lost features rather than gain dozens (of crummy features)?

I don't buy that argument at all. (Assuming I'm correctly informed that Adobe had a hard time searching for software, due to the high usage level of the forums.)

Whoever did the evaluations of which software to use, I'm sure was looking for "fancy features" as a top priority, not performance.  I'd also be very curious to know what the rejected alternatives were.

The users talked a lot about speed... hoping this form would be as fast as webx

As I remember the reason in the FAQ about why... speed was not mentioned, but VOLUME was

I remember it being written there were 600k members, with 400k messages last year... and that webx was not dealing with that volume very well

Plus the need to have one forum for all Adobe products rather then two completely separate ones.

Except for Flash/Shockwave, DreamWeaver, and Fireworks They could have killed of the rest of the Macromedia stuff and it would have been to complicated to bring three more groups in the foal.

I have not seen one bit of evidence that the New and Improved forums are any faster or slower that the WebCrossing version.  This one is, and the previous one was erratic at best.

However, earlier today I concluded that the current Jive server is an Apple II.
