... and now it's not. The downturn happened when the site was overhauled. Firstly, we lost years-years! worth of posts, private messages, threads, etc. Our entire history is gone, no matter how long we've been here. The new color scheme is headache inducing, the setup of the forums is confusing....and you're wondering why no one posts anymore? I could go on and on about how horrible the new AE is compared to what it used to be. I know that change happens, but, this was a case of "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." AE was perfect the way it was, with threads that moved so fast you could barely keep up. Now, it's like a ghost town. That should tell you something, LOGO and whoever the powers that be are. When you overhauled the site, you killed it. Please take this as it was intended to be-constructive criticism/feedback from a user who has been here going on 5 years, and used to post multiple times daily, but now hardly ever visits because the site is dead and the setup is terrible.
