    Its something that I liked about Hobart. It was lightly moderated by men. Its one of the issues that drove the talent from the AG forum. They couldn't grasp that it wasnt Sesame Street and there were not gobs of school kids drooling over every word in a mechanical forum.

    The MF just dumped a message. I agree this is a wonderful site but there are problems too. Most of the traffic now comes for a special reason. When I was recruited to Hobart by one of the infamous members could get 800 views of a bead pic in an evening. There are some reasons for he decline, namely competition and some to do with the pages themselves which should be as obvious as the shortcut everyone takes across the lawn.
    Simply putting adm and sickies at the bottom and getting rid of 3/4 of the sub forums would help.
    Surveys are usually great at confirming opinions but usually don't get to the heart of the matter, guys that got real talent for building machines are not always so great about the message and where is should be placed.
    The marketing is ofte reflected in the taste of the engineers in an integrated company like these. The Hobart Trek was an example. The designers had an interest in 4x4, off road this and that and missed the forest for the trees.
    I rarely click on a thread about 4x4 and only rarely about motor sports, I own 10 welding machines, 8 of which I bought new. I bought 2 new blue directly due to the forum system. Huge factor, probably not all feel that way.

    Glad to hear someone else say this, I couldn't believe the new Miller site, its terrible. They removed so much information, its like taking three steps backward.
    BTW I weld and fabricate for a living, Miller is supposed to be a leader in this industry, somebody messed up bad.

    It lacks the visual design it had before. It actually looks like a web page from 2001. No graphics at the top of the page? Where is the graphics banner?
    They should have the projects images as a banner, something. Very static page now.

    I don't know about others, but I use a Mac and I've had all kinds of trouble posting when I use the Safari web browser. Sometimes it allows me to post, but most of the time it doesn't and the only way I'm able to post is if I fire up my Firefox browser...

    YMMV

    Well I couldn't even access the site for a long while when they "fixed it" this year. I'm not surprised that people left and aren't on much. If I went to a store that all of a sudden was closed for months I would get in a routine to use other resources. The mobile app also never even let me post anything so all I ever did was read really frustrating because there is EXCELLENT content here. I've been using my laptop a lot lately so I have been on here now. Definitely need a smartphone app that works,..
