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.
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/
And rocket-science ain’t that complicated either - despite the common aphorism …
If you think we have a lot of emoticons you should see one of my motorcycle forums
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.
That should be the definition of “Online Forum” in Websters. The amount of useful information in this community is priceless. I enjoy cross referencing comments as well as questions till the “light bulb” gets lit. p.s. I am glad you kept the 's.
I agree, want to send a shout to Steve for getting me into the forums, phewwwwwwwwwwwwww, trying to log into these forums are getting harder than getting simple questions. I made a username and password, went to my email to validate everything, went to sign and got booted for too many attempts. And trust me I know my passwords, I can type them blindfolded. Is there a way that I can change my password from the one that Steve assigned? And is there a place to look at my profile? To see the email address that I used. I am sure I used a Gmail account but had the password to sign in sent to a Yahoo account which are both mine. But I want all the stars to align. Thank you. Then I will post in the forum when this is taken care of. Thanks again to Steve.
thank you again to Steve and others who helped me out, I checked my profile settings and changed my password to one that I want. I really wanted to get rid of the one that was assigned to me to get into the forum, hate having them sit in my email account. thank you
