When you are an investor in Berkshire, I guess you have to be old, or old fashioned and generally don’t like changes. The new board format certainly has its benefits. For ex: here is one of my recent post, the ability to post graphs, tables, links are really wonderful, refreshing. But It is sad you all left over something as silly as board format without even trying.
Of course you have the right to go and form your own kingdom!!!
The takedown of the old boards content is why I left, rather than much about the new site. Losing all that content is just not something that my relationship with TMF can recover from. I wish them luck, but I want nothing to do with them again, ever.
I think the new boards had some fairly nice features, but … critically, the TMF didn’t understand how their power users used the site, and a lot of those users left. Little navigability and usability things people had gotten used to were more important than appreciated, I guess.
The loss of content of the old boards are indeed a shame. Often some of the posts, required old content context. But, It is a free service, so you get what you paid for. I guess these boards are nearing their death, which I guess they don’t mind either.
