HC 2.0 Forums are dead, long live HC 1.0!

Check this it dooooods:

Anderton wrote:Dear Harmony Central Community,

We will be shutting down the Jive ("HC 2.0") forums Tuesday morning (May 18) at 3AM Pacific Time. The forums link in the top navigation bar will then become a straight link to the vBulletin forums.

Jive search will be reindexed that night, and all 2.0 forum posts will be removed from search. Nothing will change for those using vBulletin already, but for at least the short term the community will have to live with two accounts, two profiles, and two log ins - one for the vBulletin forums, and for the content part of the site (articles, videos, etc.).

We deeply regret any inconvenience to those who liked the 2.0 forums, and want to thank you for standing by our attempts to renovate the forums to include more functionality. Unfortunately, we cannot continue to maintain two separate forum structures. Based on comments from the community and the traffic stats, there is an overwhelming preference for the vBulletin forums. Although the problems with the vBulletin forums that served as a motivation to change them remains, we are working on solutions to these problems. Please bear with us if there are occasional system outages as we work on this.

We also apologize for the short notice, but we want to implement these changes and fixes as soon as possible.

The content part of 2.0 will remain, and several fixes in that section are being made concurrently with the forum switchover: News articles will now display properly once you get past the first page, the session timeout is being increased to avoid people being logged off during long sessions, and user reviews will display the overall rating and number of reviews. Additional fixes, enhancements, and updates are forthcoming, and we will keep you informed of these.

We greatly appreciate your patience during this difficult transition to improve Harmony Central's reliability and functionality. Our commitment to creating a better site remains unchanged, and we will continue listening to the community in order to make sure that commitment takes the right direction.

Again, thank you. We believe the worst is behind us, and the best is yet to come.

-- Your Harmony Central Team

I've no idea what their real issues with vBulletin is. So far as I know, it's a current product. My guess is that they hacked it up sufficiently that they can't do a clean upgrade to whatever the latest version is, or something dumb like that.

Anyway. :grin:

A whistle-blower had this to say about that:

Jive is corporate shillware, plain & simple. Those who buy it are mainly interested in profiting from members of online communities.

Read http://www.jivesoftware.com/solutions/marketing-and-sales for a bellyful of board room buzzwords like "brand control" and "mindshare". You can learn "battle-tested ways to derive strategic value from 24/7 user conversations". Maybe you'd like to "direct social web conversations, to foster high-impact discussions and collect valuable market intelligence".

Want to be an unpaid employee? "With a branded public community, you can rely on your members to create user-generated content to boost your site's search engine optimization."

Maybe the forums are so slow because Jive is busy logging all our keystrokes to the Big Brother Database.

Did I say shillware? I meant scumware.

As an electronic instrument technician (organ fixer) I had a service call on a nice old granny's Lowrey Holiday (with Magic Genie!) that she said sounded "crunchy". "Ah, the old dirty key contacts", thought I. But, dang if the keys didn't sound crunchy before it was even turned on! A peek under the hood revealed an organ completely filled to the grandkid's pictures with Kibbles n Bits!

Teh mice haz awesome packrat skillz. :eek:

It was a monumental effort to not LULZ OUT LAWD when she said "I thought Buster & Benji were eating an awful lot, lately"!
