For the past two weeks, this site has been inundated with spam posts about trucks, trailers, etc etc. This is clearly against the forum rules. Yet absolutely nothing has been removed. Why? Is the administrator gone? Soon those of us who still take part in their forum will likely be gone too.
The support on this forum is DREADFUL, IMHO. I sent an email to that support address concerning the fact that the search function doesn’t work (ever, as far as I can tell). No answer, no fix. And yes, that spam stuff is the kind of thing that can KILL a forum if it isn’t monitored and removed conscientiously. It’s too bad, since it seems as though it’s either this or FaceBook, and I really dislike FB.
While FaceBook has its issues, at least the many recorder groups are quite active and are monitored quite closely. Since Ken in Dallas and Richard Hureau haven’t gotten any responses from support, perhaps this forum is now about the same as a rogue planet in outer space that’s hurtling to its cold and lifeless death. Perhaps I’m being a bit too picturesque, but …
Hi all. Tony Eyers here, the creator of RecorderForum.com. Many thanks for alerting me to the rubbish on the site, it has been removed. The recorder world has few places to meet and discuss our wonderful instrument, I’m glad that this is one of them. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if future problems arise.
Yes, his response in this thread was nice too. 🙂 As far as a search, um, go to the Forum home page (by clicking “Forum” on the top menu, right-most entry) and when that comes up, look below the “About” menu item. There’s a “Search” field. Of course, as I said, it doesn’t EVER find anything, even topics that you know are on the site. For example, search for Moeck or Ecodear or Bernolin. (Maybe they fixed it by now, hope, hope…)
