All very sensible ideas, and you'd think pretty obvious ones, too: we share your frustration, but due to the way the site is built making any of those seemingly simple changes requires quite a bit of development time, and we just don't have the resources to do that at the moment. All will be well, we're told, when the New Platform comes – but while it's spoken about in the kind of hushed tones of awe usually reserved for The Rapture, it's going to be some time before it happens.
When? Well, if you believe in all those supposed Mayan prophecies, it's unlikely you'll ever see it; as for the rest of us non-believers, let's just say we're told it'll be some time in '13, but we ain't holding our breath...
We would if we could, SoSJ, but for now we can't. Sorry.

I can assure you the magazine is in rude health, and in fact I'm sitting here during my lunch hour reading our shiny new Awards 2012 issue which just arrived from the printers, and goes on sale this Friday! Woohoo

Probably more but its a right royal one imo.
Disappearing (or deleted?) threads.
"Subject cannot be longer than 64 characters but is currently 80 characters long" - when the "subject" actually contains fewer than 64 characters
2. Self-opinionated people who will not let go of their ideas.
3. Calling people names but trying to be clever about it.
4. Apostrophes in the wrong place's (see how I did that?)
5. Cable wars aka boring.
6. Those dealer wars. Read ATC......
Too many HiFi threads! Not enough home cinema. I like it when the dealers argue too. People who sign up as a member more than once!
I agree their is far too many hifi threads on this forum, my washing machine has packed up & i know more about LG washing machines than i do about av recievers & blu-ray machines, ops: i also wish people would contribute more in the tv section.

What winds me up .. not much really ... exept threads that begin with "Urgent!", "Help!", "I'm Desparate" ... as if somehow buying hifi or soliciting advice of the forum was a matter of life and death

People who don#t know how to ask a question so revert to CAPITALS.
I get quite a few Email that have headings in capitals. Guess who they come from. Scammers/Spammer and fools.
but it does seemed to have improved a bit recently.
Not a HiFi Nut. Just has a pile of Nads.
Given the opinions here, they are disparate

Any time an interesting (regular) poster is put off contributing because of (inane) petty squabbling.
