    A big comment from someone with only two posts..... but, then perhaps that is part of the ruination you wrote of.

    Well, your here so Welcome to the Forum!
    Frequently when posts like this show up there has been some sort of misunderstanding- or it has been thrown out as a Forum Troll...hopefully the previous. When you get a minute, fill out your profile and let us know where you are and perhaps who you are. If you need help or have a question- just ask.

    Don't forget that he has another post...so that changes the math!!

    He was much more "wordy" back in early January 2013...not happy then, either.

    We can play all we want with the OP, slice and dice the number of posts etc. but what about his point? More information defining his problems would be helpful. But keep in mind there are probably more lurkers than many of you realize. It took me some time to make my first post and despite my current post count I spend most of what time I spend on the forum lurking rather than posting.

    What problems do we see that we would like to resolve.

    For example, I just posted BMW's announcement of their with drawl from WSBK. Because of the nature of the release I decided to copy and past the press release. In the previous version this was a simple process. In this version it is a PITA. The current version changes quote marks and more into question marks. A copy and paste process that should have taken less time to do than read the press release turned into a long drawn out affair.

    I am not certain what tripped the OP's trigger to post his frustration. I am great full for and appreciate the amount of work that goes into running the site. That said, niggling problems like this are the 'fuel strip failures' that frustrate users and may drive them from the brand.

    Really? A longer than reasonable cut-and-paste process on the forum is going to make people sell their BMWs?!
    "Drive them from the brand" as you said?!

    This reminds me of a recent "new" version of an application we use at work. After the upgrade many comments like, "..we use to...the old version did it..." the answer, it's a new version, get use to it. Possibly being more difficult to cut/paste dribble is an improvement? Possibly simply post a link to the article may be quicker and take up less real estate in the forum?

    Copy / Paste Bug with vbulletin 4.20 #1 Thu 23rd May '13, 6:13am
    Hey Everyone,
    I am experiencing a very odd bug and about to launch my site publicly with 50,000 users so I am a bit nervous / concerned!

    If I copy/paste any content into a post, I can not edit that post anymore. If I edit it, it will show up as blank in the edit form as if I never even posted anything at all! This is only if I create a new post then paste into it.

    If I create a new post, write some text manually - then paste at some point into the post, it will not allow me to edit it anymore. I need to post the manually written content, THEN edit, THEN paste, at which point I can then edit the pasted text. UGH! :-P

    If I create a new post, write some text manually and post it, edit it, paste the text - then I can edit the post without problem with all the content available. It is only if I start a new post and paste content into the post then edit that this problem occurs.

    I can't pull up his other post.

    But it probably doesn't matter.

    I can't pull up the other post via his username. His other post was before we switched over to the new forum in early April...for some reason there is a brick wall there for earlier posts. But if you use the google search tool "site:bmwmoa.org xxxx" where xxxx is his username, you can find it.

    I'm certain that those responsible for the forum are working hard to correct the faults they are aware of. Instead of merely throwing out a broad complaint, the OP could have articulated his issues. That would have moved us all closer to resolving the problems with the forum. As it is, the OP leaves us all with no way to respond other than to engage in some good natured ribbing. Who knows, perhaps the ribbing will motivate the OP to provide more detail.
