    If they wanted to lower the traffic to their servers this is how you'd do it ......

  • Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

    @longjohn119 Can I ask you to lay out your reasoning for your claim? I do not wish to assume that it is made simply because change for some people, is percieved as bad.

    @adam_sanderson I base it on the fact that pretty much every person I know on the Valhalla forum hates it .... The only advantage is they actually figured how to make a Spam Filter work unlike the old forums but other than that it's just not as fast and efficient to use

    @longjohn119 Because other people do not like it, is actually not a valid reason. This is the informal logical fallacy known as the argument from popularity.

    I do not understand what is meant by fast, as I can type and read at my normal speeds and page loading appears the same to me. I would need a definition of efficient in the context of this forum to even start to understand what you mean by the term.

    At least they are keeping the spam out, unlike on the old forum.
    (Or the spammers don't find it worthy of spamming anymore.)

    @kormac67 My guess is this template already had one built in

    You'd think a group of programmers could have figured out how to write a freaking Spam Filter for the old forums ..... I used to administer a group of 6 Linux based servers for IPOs, mainly American Indian but also a couple of environmental groups and I figured it out and I'm an Electronics Engineer .... Before you could just download one as a browser plug-in I was writing my own ad blockers back in the Windows 98 era ..... Point being this stuff isn't that hard if I can figure it out on my own with a little basic research

    Hey there @longjohn119,

    I've moved your thread to the Forum Feedback section, as I felt it makes more sense to be there than any other board. I hope that you don't mind!

    I'm glad to hear that you're a fan of our new spam management system, but am also sorry to hear that you find Discussions slower to use and believe that responsiveness is lower.

    Do you have any specific suggestions for improvements that you would like to see, or new features that you feel would be beneficial to introduce? I am happy to pass forward any ideas that you may have to the forum developers for them to review and consider. Thanks!

    @tomdela007, could you also let me know why you are troubled by the page-to-page navigation, and why you have called it "clunky"? What do you feel could be improved? Thanks! 🙂
