[QUOTE=Fencepost;308169I took a look, and I don't think there are more than before. Maybe you just haven't looked at the forum list in the last 10 years; I know I almost never do. I just click the "New Posts" link to see the new traffic.[/QUOTE]

That's me, I only go out to the forum list when I need to post something other than a comment to an existing thread, and that ain't often!:p

Yes, TOH is proud of their minutia forum listing, and I think that it is a tad longer since the recent "upgrade" of the main site. I don't much care because I'm rarely out there, but to the casual user, the list is daunting and unnecessary. I don't think there needs to be much more break down of forums than the major phases of construction, e.g., interior, exterior, framing, electrical, plumbing, etc.

Well at least we're still here. There are a few more categories but we're still being hidden as if we're some kind of embarrassment, I'm on the other forum now, just drop in here occasionally to see if they've gotten their act together yet.

You've been around here long enough to know THAT will never happen! LOL

I'm taking this form of my favorites list it's turned out to be nothing but a piece of junk

That's why we've been looking for a new home. Check out a few of the recommended links we've been posting throughout this thread for some better alternatives. Also, be sure to send a PM to anyone you'd like to keep in touch with so that you can exchange email addys. :cool:

Yep, we're still being treated like toilet paper here. I still drop in occasionally but most of the fun now lies elsewhere.

Hope all my friends here are having a nice Holiday Season :D

Well, whaddya know. They've re-skinned the board. So maybe they haven't forgot about us after all.

But the lack of the "new posts since last visit" link is going to make it harder to participate.

And it's still no easier to find the board from the main site.

Why would you expect anything less of this place? TOH has gone out of their way to make it clear that they don't care about the forum, they don't care about the devoted regulars, and they don't care about the patrons who come for answers. So, why would they make the forum easy to find or even remotely usable? The answer is, they don't care, which is why many of us don't come around anymore. There are far better places to contribute your time and knowledge than this place.

It appears they no longer want me as an ****** moderator so I will not be able to control the spam and idiotic post to get post counts. I therefor see no reason to stay.
