I wouldn't gripe about these nearly so much if I could just keep using the other ones to at least contact people. Yes, I have a dozen other complaints about these forums.
1) Cannot contact people via the forums itself
2) Cannot list unread posts
3) Don't see a way to put in tags
4) Can't stay logged in
5) No faces to names
6) No group forums
7) No way to email people
8) I have an older computer, and the other forums worked just fine on my little itty bitty vista computer. These do not work at all. Yes, this one is minor, but just sayin
9) There was a way there to hop to last unread in a post don't see it here. And yes, that is different than just having a list of posts that contain unread postings.
1) It's on the site itself.
#2 is one of the biggest drawbacks. In a fast moving and large thread espcially one in which you have not viewed for awhile it can be difficult or time-consuming to figure out where yoiu left off.
