Bob Pritchett:

I'm interested in your feedback on our new web forums.

My comment?  It's about time.  I've been using forums for years and prefer them over usenet style newsgroups.  For one thing, if I post a question/comment here, I have an option to receive an e-mail notice when there's a response to my post.  That saves tons of my time.

As a sign of the times, AT&T just informed me that as of mid-July they are dropping their support of usenet newsgroups.  Ah well.....

I dislike web forums just because of the layers of content, and the fact that I dont get the data locally, I'm a mailing list kind of guy.  I'll give this a go, I'm an IT professional and still have a difficult time with this software.

I think having it web based is probably the way to go. Seems like there were just periodic problems getting on the news group servers and at times, it seems like the server is down. I also like the ability to access from anywhere. I'm guessing I might make use of it more, as currently I have to use Windows mail, as Outlook doesn't have a news reader, so I'm not always likely to remember to open it. I do however spend a lot of time in by browser. That's my two cents...

I prefer the forum instead of the newgroups which came to me through outlook. I was never sure if outlook had competely downlaoaded all of the posts. Thank you Logos, once again, for making my life easier.Big Smile

Do you prefer this to the NNTP newsgroups? Are there advantages/disadvantages?

I just started using the Forum yesterday. Most of the time I cant tell who is reply to what message. Never had that problem with NNTP. 

What is the button "Select Tags..." for?

Give it some more time. Because others have to learn about "Reply" and use of the "Quote" button vs. "Quick Reply".

Press it and all shall be revealed.

I like the forums because I can access them from a browser on any computer (I can't use newsgroups while at work).

I know exactly what you mean.  That is the really big gripe that I have about this setup.  The Newsgroup had a tree structure so that you could see at a glance what anyone was replying to.  Here, unless they quote from the post they are replying (and frequently they don't), who knows what it's all about?

Why not?  If you can get on the internet you should be able to get the Newsgroup unless you don't have OE, T-bird, Microsoft Mail or whatever.

Corporate firewalls tend to block all TCP/IP ports not required by the business for security reasons.  This includes internet news (NNTP) ports.

Will use them much more. I was an advocate of newsgroups for years, feeling techno-superiority over those who only knew how to open a browser. But today, a Web forum is a no-brainer. So much more can be done than five or six years ago. RSS, linked video--whatever. I checked in occasionally on two or three of the newsgroups, but I'm more likely to be a regular on a Web forum.

Never used the newsgroups here.  Have been using other forums for many, many years. 

Very glad Logos now has a forum!

There are better clients out there, though...this one seems quite limited.  Crosswalk has a great one, quite versatile and customizable and user-friendly.

Add an "edit" post, among other things.

There is an "edit" capability.  Look under "More."

All I can see under "More" is "Report Abuse", "Add this Post as a Favorite" and "Add this Forum as a Favorite".

But was it your own post, and was it within the period when editing is allowed?

No, I checked one of your posts George. I figure if Logos wants to preserve any kind of integrity on this site they should at least allow me the ability to delete the silly things you say.

O.K.... sorry. Sarcasm not allowed. I'll delete it when I get a window in my schedule. Maybe next week.

I didn't know about any time limit. If somebody mentioned it earlier I missed it. Yes, I see the edit option now. What are the time constraints?
