The new ways are a pain because before you could just press reply to this thread or quote the person and it came up automatically without having to cut and paste it. Plus i think being able to post images is cool and everything but there is bound to be people who abuse it and before you know it the threads are full of nothing but pics and videos and not real talking. Isn't that what forums are for though? I mean personally i think if i wanted to see pics or videos, i could email my friends outside of CS or go to youtube. The thing i loved about CS was the banter in the forums but that seems to be somewhat diminished lately. JMO.
I keep expecting pre recorded answers, comebacks, attempted sarcastic wit and canned comments to be appearing for the Forums; all we would have to do is choose the number of the response and not type a thing... As volatile and heated as some forum posts get, they are at least human responses, not images, sounds or something "pre-recorded". People need to be in touch with people...you know the type...REAL people with real words.
88 people have viewed this so far and 14 responded. Other than the people who have voted, posted I don't want to see bitching and whining carrying on when you have/had the chance to help make a change. No wonder we get some of the presidents we do. Everyone sits back and lets everyone else do the voting. If you can look at this thread, hit a yes or no button.......hello.........how simple is that....much more simple than it has been in the forums. JMO
Whatever anybody chooses, I don't care, but lets get this out in the open on one thread. There is no reason for the mods to guess or go from one thread to another and try to figure out what everyone thinks.
CS was once a place for communication. Now it's a gadget circus. There's no harm in that, other than a good thread can be relegated to a 3rd page within an hour, because someone wants to show 18 pics., of their dog. Bandwidth is expensive CS, you know that already.
I get the feeling the novelty will wear off soon and we can all go back to normal real soon. I don't mind the fact that some can post pics of where they live and show snippets of their lives but all the videos and music clips should be left on You Tube and sites of that nature. If you really want people to see it, post a link. I do like the emoticons though!
The old ways. I'm already tired of the videos and junk being posted.It's like getting junk mail. I'm with Indy. I want to hear what people have to say, not what they get off youtube.I have access to find what I want on youtube myself.
