Forum way too complicated

Permanent link to this post Posted by asdfse5t » Thu Oct 30, 2014 7:00 am

I was dumb enough to go to the "Read Me" link posted on the front page. I fell for the "how to post a message" which takes you to like some 5 other links on all this "vital information" on how to post.

It's a forum for a recording program, not NASA. Even on this page, we have what, 30 emoticons??? The site is overly busy, overly complicated.

Just my opinion.

Thanks for the feedback.
How would you simplify it?
I guess the smilies could go, but a lot of people like smilies :D

Actually it's a forum for a multi-track editing program - much more complicated than just a "recording program" - that's why the Manual is becoming so big and complicated: http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/ 8-)

And rocket-science ain't that complicated either - despite the common aphorism ... :ugeek:

If you think we have a lot of emoticons you should see one of my motorcycle forums

I agree completely. How about a single box with a single instruction? ASK YOUR QUESTION HERE AND SOMEONE WILL ANSWER IT.________________________

That doesn't help people on a particular operating platform or who have an interest in audio processing who want to browse topics of interest to them.

One major purpose of archiving and categorising questions and answers is so that some users will find answers here without having to post. There is of course "search" but it is sometimes useful to browse to pick up all manner of useful tips and advice.

I would like to submit an Audacity bug.

When I try, I am asked for an account/password which appears to differ from this forum account.

Please give me the steps to create an Audacity Bugzilla account.

Thanks, :)
