Agree. This forum isn’t as good as DAZ’s old forum and carraracafe is worse. You would think a professional company would want a forum that looks, well, professional. Holly’s site looks pro, stone mason’s site looks pro, Daz’s forum looks like something your average punter put together in their basement.
I’ve thought this ever since it went live. The old forum was solid, had a wonderful backlog of articles (at least you can still find them on google) and characters.
Is it impossible to go back? Just admit it was a mistake and go back to something that worked well?
I work in web marketing, you soon find out what works and what doesn’t. The smart move is to leave your ego behind and go with what works best.
