1) Forums are too slow
2) No ability to search
3) No feedback forum
4) JavaScript error
5) No attachments

Makes me feel like moving on...

Obviously, these forums are useful
Your complaints are not unusual from members who frequent other vBulletin sites
This sub-forum functions as a feedback forum and seems to work as such

...it's not likely to change in the next few days, Morgan
But hopefully you will stick around a bit and see why it works
It's not the latest and greatest technology that makes a forum work, it's the people

Works fine for me. Perhaps it's on your end...

True, this could be better. While inconvenient, it only slightly diminishes the usefulness of the forums, as there are always timely topics.

Umm.... you're kind of posting in it...

No problems on my end. Again, this is most likely on your end. Can you elaborate? Maybe someone can help. Better yet, post it in the "Computer" forum.

I'm assuming you mean pictures specifically. If you mean actually uploading the pic to the DIY.com servers, then that is understandable, on their part, as it would require far too much storage space. There is a way to post pictures (if you have them hosted somewhere), just not using the typical vBulletin method. I'll see if I can find the post that shows you how to do it.

I'll be the first to admit - I'm barely computer literate. If I was more computer savy I'm sure I could get [and give] more out of the forums. That said I still believe the DIY forum is the best thing out there for a home owner [or any DIYer]. Faster could be nicer. I have dial up and lack of speed is always a concern but then I can't afford satelite ISP. If you mean response time - remember the answers are all provided by volunteers. IMO most questions are answered in a timely mannner. Stick around if you want to, if not well.....
