The old forum is still here: that makes clear that there are now two XTA forums.
To me not ideal solution, I do not like how spring is splittering and hate to see XTA as tiny part of that, but good to have backup plan.
Imo no need to be more explicit.
To me "clueless posts and lazy questions does matter" because it defines forum quality.
Of course can ignore some things like thread with "lazy questions" (zero own attempt at a solution) - roll eyes and scroll on.
"Clueless posts" I find more problematic:
Who likes to put effort into an detailed answer and then someone else posts a thoughtless objection?
Why bother with links to wiki or engine if nobody seems to read it and still questions?
What do you suggest to do if thread already has a wrong reply in it? I tried different things: explaing it, completly ignoring it, a compromise of posting my own reply and in passing address indirectly etc,...none really worked.
This is ofc not about meandering discussions but about topics with defined problem & solution.

Message was different before edit. It was random example that seemed relevant and had happend recently. (one day ago)
It also showed: Even if I could maybe ignore things for quite long time, others will leave earlier.

Oh, certainly not.
Thanks for sharing your view, now I am actually somewhat curious.
(However for the last 1-2 years or subforum-events I see parallels to desync errors: what happens in endgame is "whatever.")
