Forum Format

I do not really like this forum. I do not know how to search, cannot edit as well, and it does not tell me who is on. Is there a way to get back the old format but keep the new speed, which is good?

Normally I'd like to give the forum a chance, but the ability to *edit* was something that was not considered.

I was peaking while the mods were test posting, and I noticed that they focused on posting images and icons, but nobody really tried to recreate what people actually use the forums for on a day to day basis.

I'd suggest next time a forum change is implemented:

- Test posts based on what you really see happening: store fronts, story telling, political banter, and even resolution *editing*.

- Divide the game up on totally unrelated servers, based on the current forums. Just give us accounts for the different servers, but I don't see that much of a problem in jumping from one location to another. Afterall, many of us do this with regional forums.

I'll still stick around, but much of the functionality of the old forums was LOST when the ability to edit / delete was removed.

Well, like a said, the speed is such a huge improvement. It is just that there are so many things Jolt does not do that the former forums did do.

One of the Jolt Admin's said search is off while they get the the forums here up to the speed they should be at so it is assumed that once that is done we will have the search function.

what are you talking about this forum is as slow as the old one!

Yesterday at one point I couldnt even get onto the forum because it was so slow. However that may be due to another reason e.g. The admins tinkering with the forum
