>The winds of change

>I predict that the next generation will be much more adaptable to change than this one. It seems every time we turn around there’s a new wave of technology to learn, a new way of communicating, of storing things, listening to music, and the list goes on and on.

I hadn’t been on eHarlequin in a few weeks. I’d forgotten that they were getting ready to launch a new forum system. Surprise! It’s up and running. I had to upload my picture/avatar all over again. I’m not sure it’s easier than the old one. I miss the outline feature and several folks have commented they miss the spell check and back-to-top buttons. It does have ‘hooky’ things like the ‘friends’ feature also seen on communities such as MySpace and Bebo and gives you the ability to set up your on blog on there. To that I say ‘no thanks.’ Sheesh! There are only so many blogs one can keep up with.

Have you experienced the new eHqn forums? What did you think?

    >I have to explore it a bit more, but I liked the way the old system would bring you back to wherever you left off on the forums. When I went back in a second time, I think it started me at the beginning of the messages again. I had to search to figure out where I’d left off. I haven’t been back because it’s hard enough to keep up with the blogs I read now, much less try to keep track of where I left off at eharlequin. Did you find this too?

    >Now that you mention it, yeah. I think it’s harder to maneuver around overall. I don’t get over there all that frequently, so the outline bit really helped me scan the topics and search out only the meaty ones. There’s way too much gabbing going on within the forums that are supposed to discuss the writing requirements for the lines, what the editors preferences are, etc. IMO the mods should keep folks on topic. Maybe have a general social loop and another business loop for each line.
