Club Mania

Zo got the idea but Steve got the current reality on the issue. I got a new vacuum cleaner to post about and a club gets pushed off to the bottom of the bird cage and outa site to page 2. Forgotten, lost.
 
If there is anyone left at the helm that can even drool on themselves at this point, would be great to take advice from these members and set up another forum. "Clubs" or whatever. Then micronize with sub forums as needed or requested.
 
Forum for musicians struggling with a specific software or developer. Makes complete, total sense and wonder why nobody thought about this approach earlier when there was maybe some administrator who cared or could help actualize the concept.
 
Late in the game, but a good idea if someone can make it so.
 
John

    It is sad over time then that they did not take action on your request. Loved Cakewalk and Sonar over the years, but so many cries for help fell on deaf ears. Only outlet was to beat my head on a brick wall. Probably not a whole lot better now.

    This forum will get replaced at some point in the future, so is both unlikely to happen and not worth worrying about. I simply shifted to the full version so I could mark that forum as read.

    A lost opportunity of the past has been to create a wiki that could have been concise and complete. Over the years many have posted the same things repeatedly in a forum without a search engine, so a lot of that tribal knowledge will be lost as well. Repeating the same things becomes a waste of time.

    KVR has always done that, with varying degrees of success. Users often forget that vendor-specific subforums exist, so most of them are overlooked and under-utilized.
     
    Still, I have to agree with the premise that ongoing threads dedicated to one vendor are likely to become cumbersome. Maybe the solution is a better search engine.


    All else is in doubt, so this is the truth I cling to.

    My original idea was exactly to minimise the search , looking waves plugins infos , one placex, the lack of subfolder made me do this ... also discussion will normaly fallow time graduation releases , witch me last release have a chance to be on last pages ...anyway i do think forums can be a place for both , discussion and references ...

    If you guyz want we can delete those ... until they create a better layout and categorised version of the forum

    Would like to know what this forum’s actual status is. Are people still running it or are all of us drifting in limbo until someone pulls the plug?

    I got no illusion or hope that anything will change here. Didn’t happen when Sonar was a viable product, and will not happen now in the twilight days of you and me being able to communicate here..
     
    Bit’s argument about a better search engine may be a fix, but the stuff is still scattered to hell and back.
     
    My old school OCD focus is still on another section of the forum. Call it whatever to categorize and establish sticky sub sections to cover major developers. Would in a real world nominate Zo as a moderator to add new sections as needed. Will never happen, but only a discussion on how to pull it off right if we had any choice.
     
    Can’t remember where the hell it was, but the HeadCase guys were instrumental in starting a web focus on specific guitar sims by the author. Highly successful with washed in the blood participation. You had a question, dialed in to the respective forum and some guru fixed you quick.
     
    My opinion only, but these Cakewalk forums are dead going forward. Nobody can register, and what we see is what we gets. Who knows how long things will last here. Best scenario to just let us die off from old age naturally. Less left to complain or ask for change. Sure cure.

    Bash , i think John was labeling the forum as dead when it come to maintenance and dev , not about people makng it alve , witch is basically why i love this place.
     
    He's totally right about the forum , even when Cake was hearthy , it wasn't on the level of actual standard 
    The cakewalk alternatve forums (beyond my daw ect) were a great idea , and better layout out , i think f they don't want to handle this they should let bapu or others handle it

    ...I would say that the forum is what you make of it. I often see people complaining about the forum, and often times the complaints are from people I rarely see offer any answers or even ask questions. A significant number of people seem to be satisfied with simply making comments which may or may not be pertinent to some particular topic, and that seems, to me, to be a natural extension of the free and lively discourse that defines a forum in its classical form.  



    Well said, Bash.
     
    I've had some of my best conversations in the narrowest forum of all, a series of group email exchanges. A tiny number of participants, and the mini-forum simply dies when they tire of the topic. Still, the content is often substantive because every contributor is self-selected and therefore invested in the discussion.


    All else is in doubt, so this is the truth I cling to.

    Before I retired one of roles was managing an internal tech support "help desk" and knowledge management for a technical domain in a large international corporation.  The key to core knowledge management system was classification and verification, this made searching and browsing very easy. Verification and a user feedback system meant the content was reliable and frequently reviewed.
     
    We also had builtin boards which did not have classification or verification, this is the case on a forum such as this. We could harvest the best from the builtin boards and convert into content for the the KM system. This requires a work and staff allocated to the task.
     
    To some extent the chaos inherent in forums and bulletin boards is their strength, people are more open in such an environment. The down side is chaos,  like here where the sub-forum system is often bypassed and posts end up in the "wrong" sub-forum. If a moderator moves a post people often get upset.
     
    Introducing classifications may help in finding information but the required manpower and costs would be prohibitive.
     
    I think the the introduction of more sub-forums seems like a good idea but in practice it would only be effective if strictly moderated, which in turn would discourage participation. Catch 22.
