View Full Version : Sir, the daily digests are not easy to read or use

Hi there,

Thanks for sending me the daily digests of the discussion forum. They are,
unfortunately, not easy to use or read. Cumbersome. Is there a place
where I can go and read them instead of opening up all those files? What
about all the other forums where you just go and read the threads? If you
go to audioasylum.com's forums, or avsforum.com, they are pretty easy to
navigate and read.

Thanks.

Sincerely,

Vincent

I know this is a subject of some debate, but I agree with Vincent on this. A more traditional "forum" arrangement lets me be more selective in the topics I want to participate in rather than receiving every comment in every conversation happening in the community at any given time. And as the community grows (and I hope that it will because it's a great product) the issue is going to be magnified even more.

Easy is in the eye of the beholder... they look horribly difficult to
me. Well, audioasylum does, avsforum looks like this:

Warning: mysql_pconnect(): Can't connect to MySQL server on
'192.168.0.1' (111) in
/home/avsforum/www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/admin/db_mysql.php on line 38

NOTE: We are at this moment working on the database server.

If the site seems to be out a very long time, like over an hour, us
please e-mail Technical Staff, who you can also contact if the problem
persists.

We apologise for any inconvenience.


Anyway, both of you can try this on for size:
