Talk about ruining a great resource

I don't know who approved removing the old forums in place of this, but they should be fired. The forum used to be a great resource. This is terrible and I am quite sure this is the last time I will come here.

Comments

  • The old forum is still available, at least for a while.

    I'm fairly certain there's been discussion about finding a way to improve the forum since blackberrys were popular glorified pagers. While there's a chance you don't come back to read this, please share what you liked about the old forums that you don't have here, or what you think makes this new community terrible.

  • Many, many comments over the years about the deficiencies of the Forum.
    Here are some threads:
    New Forum - fix the problems
    oh mer gerd fix the forum

  • I mostly like the presentation of this forum. I like the "like" button, because it provides feedback on the level of interest by others on a comment/question. This should help WatchGuard to focus their support, documentation and possibly marketing people's efforts toward the issues that are of interest or concern to their customers and partners.

  • Would be nice to see all the old forum history imported into the new format so we can continue to search in one spot. Old forums had a LOT of good material.

  • I second being able to see or importing the old forum history, a TON of information to your customers will be lost if they are removed.

  • YES, please import the 'old forum history'. It was an invaluable resource of material. I always found answers without having to ask questions...aka...someone else usually had the same question before myself and asked the question already. Now there is NOTHING!

  • The old Forum is still around - primarily for searching on old posts.
