I wanted to try out the forums, though, before giving my thanks - in case I had some “hmm”'s and “ha”'s.
Well, now I’ve been using the forum for a couple of days, and I must say I’m pleasantly surprised in several ways.
My problem pre-MPU forum was that I’d actually like to interact with the rest of the listeners of (IMHO) the best Apple-related tech show out there, but - like a lot of listeners - found the Facebook group too hard to search, or generally participate in.
So I rarely interacted with the group.
But now with the new forum, after a couple of days of use, I find myself getting drawn to the forum several times a day - not only for posting new topics (some of them lacking tech content, like this one ), but also for the sheer “what if I miss out on something cool” nagging feeling
Plus I think that - maybe it’s just me, but - it seems like there’s a lot more tech support as well as knowledge, and experience sharing between listeners after the new forum has gone live.
A good example of this is the Beta topics - I’m loving that listeners now share our and regarding soft- and hardware, or that some just hang out and post their Battle Stations (as I saw a listener call his office setup )
I’ve always been more of a forum kind of guy, than a FB user kind of guy, so based on the past couple of days I’ll probably lose a lot of spare time in here, from now on
Anyway, just my 2 cents - have a good one everybody
