So let me get this straight. With the previous structure, the multiple forums made it extremely easy for users to find specific posts containing specific information, but it inconvenienced the moderators. So the solution is to draconianly slash the number of forums all the way down to...... 22?
What the heck was it before? 25? All I see here is that you eliminated THE ONLY FORUMS I look at on this website: Severe acne, oily skin, and hypertrohic scars.
Sorry, but I am NOT going to waste my time sorting through the 500 posts from teenagers experiencing their first whitehead just to find the ones that MIGHT relate to severe acne... or that MIGHT relate to oily skin.
Sorry, but I am NOT going to search through every freaking hypertrophic scar thread to find the 3 with a new post.
The reason some posts got "buried" and not seen is because, believe it or not, some people have extremely unique skin issues that are more than those seen in ProActive commercials. They don't fit in the 'Normal, Average Acne' forums. If you people didn't like that some posts were getting buried, then maybe YOU should have responded to them. In the hypertrophic scar forum, I was one of the ONLY PEOPLE responding there consistently because of my experience with those scars. When I first joined these boards, I was a bit of an a**hole. But as I spent years trying to fight my scars, I decided that I WANTED to help others just like me on the hypertrophic scar forum. Congratulations, this new bullsh*t structure prevents me from doing that. I'm not going to waste my time searching for the few threads I want to see. If I want to 'search' for things, I use Google. Now, instead of acne.org, I'll find a different website for oily skin. No need to 'search' there. Maybe I'll find a new website for hypertrophic scars. And I just might find a new website for severe acne too.
Congratulations on giving me a reason NOT to post on acne.org. Please email me when the forums are user-friendly again.
