    Tempted. Hardly seems worth it now.

    I agree, the forum is a sack of shite compared to what it used to be, but no, I’m quite happy with my P.

    Really does need sorting out tho, sooner, rather than later and all that..

    I’d say hold the faith.. unless you really need to save the small amount it costs you you may as well hang on in there.

    I renewed for the year just before the “upgrade” otherwise I would be considering it.

    I’d buy a P if there was a paypal option. Can’t believe how many moaning cockwombles there are on here.

    Pfft maybe, not really a protest thing though. Just that I used the forum a fair bit and felt like I should P to support it. Now I don’t use it much at all as the ways I used to browse the forum are broken.

    P or not, you would still get logged out every bloody day.

    Na.

    I don’t read the mag but life would be dull without this place.

    Keep the faith – and ride on 🙂

    We’ll see. If they fix all the broken stuff I’ll stick with it.

    To be fair, it is a little better than it was – seems faster than before (still slow compared to e.g.twitter) and I can now get back to my old posts (far from obvious).

    EDIT: and editing works again.

    I was under the impression this was no longer happening post-upgrade.  Is that not the case?

    No, because despite the occasional winge from me, I enjoy the magazine (“there’s a magazine?” etc)

    My credit card expired as did my annual P. I’ve not renewed and won’t until stuff sort of works properly again.

    nope, not a chance.  the help from a multitude of experts in every subject you could think of, plus the ‘entertainment’ on occasions means its my go to website every day.  the help and advice on here has saved me hundreds over the years and made my life easier so i find it excellent value.

    im sure the probs will be sorted out soon, and even if they werent, id still keep my P just as my small way of supporting the site.  i never read the mag, i dont ride that much these days either, so its just the forum for me.  its just a real good community on here and id miss it if it ever disappeared.

    No, gave mine up in a huff a few years back about a pretty unwarranted ban when a forum clique member went squealing to teacher.

    My ‘P’ has boiled over a couple of times actually trying to use this ‘upgraded’ forum, though.

    I think the powers that be at STW Towers have just got their fingers in their ears hoping it is all going to go away. Presumably they are now ‘priced-in’ to the ‘upgrade’ and can’t go back. To quote the magnificent John Le Carre:

    I can just about make out what you’re saying there through the blizzard of <span> spam.

    I didn’t even try to do that!

    If anything illustrates my point better than that, I don’t know what it could be!

    Hopeless. I’m off. Might log in again in a week or so to see if things are at least back to the Stone Age. At least if you write in ochre on a cave wall you know what you are going to end up seeing.

    I’ve just got my P back after a 12 month Grit Cx experiment. Moved to Grit Cx as i liked the magazine just as they went digital only, bum. Liking the new Singletrack Mag so I resubscribed.

    Sounds bloody childish thing to do to me. Wait until it’s “fixed” at least. Even then, I still wouldn’t give up the print mag, so no, I’m keeping me P

    I’m a lifer.

    Top tip: don’t wear your ‘life behind bars’ stw t-shirt when you’re the foreman of a jury delivering the verdict on a rape case.

    This upgrade does seem to be a classic case of ‘the longest suicide note in history’.

    Premier Icon monkeysfeet

    Not totally. But I have gone to digital only and given up on the printed mag.

    The new site isn’t too bad but the quote issue is just ridiculous.

    wait till it’s fixed?

    Oh, you. You crack me up. This is the only forum I know that is more broken after an upgrade than it was before and considering the state it was in that took some doing. But hey, as long as people are stupid enough to fork out money to support this nonsense and then feel superior about it then this is what we can expect.

    If the forum was permanently like this I might see the point but this is temporary, so no.

    The current state of affairs is shite but a) it’s not supposed to be like this and b) It won’t be forever so.

    Premier Icon chakaping

    Perhaps the fact that the site is such a shambles suggests STW need our support more<span style=”font-size: 0.8rem;”> than we might have expected?</span>

    It’s surprising they’ve left it up like this, and you have to think why would they do that?

    I am really missing the replies bit, I always used to go there to see updates to threads where I had replied.  Also seems a bit rubbish on mobile, some fonts too small, some too big.

    I’m not actively avoiding the forum but it feels like I am on here less…

    Premier Icon vondally

    Yes and no,

    Yes the upgrade is, well currently a tad infuriating, the forum has changed not always for the better,  more is the content of the magazine. I have been around a long time so feel a lot is repeated and not interesting me.

    No I bought the first edition, I value what STW has done – getting my SO nightriding, for one thing-  I like the forum bought and sold lots it has given me the chance  to try different bikes, I value having a forum where you can go a get some help (and hindrance as well).

    I treat the forum like a pub, I can leave when I want.

    Nope lifer.

    “The current state of affairs is shite but a) it’s not supposed to be like this and b) It won’t be forever so.”

    I sincerely hope not too. I go on a fishing forum where there may be 3 posts a day & It’s better than what STW has turned into.

    Here’s screenshot of what my page looks like…

    No toolbar for quotes or anything, no emoji’s. Zilch.

    & what’s all this crap?
