What IS HAPPENING to NFS?
Let me start by saying I've been a multiple time NFSer for years now. And have tried to be a positive and encouraging part of the NFS community.
I gotta say, since this site rebrand, I've noticed far more issues being introduced, I believe it's damaging our community.
1. The voting system is broken, nobody is happy with it. Solution: remove it, or make it more conducive to conversation and uplifting other members discussion.
2. I've had comments go "into moderation" and not be approved if I questioned a valid point in the post. Isn't the point of this site to talk and ask questions? Solution: don't censor comments from vetted members.
3. Several posts are seemingly regurgitated from other sites (FilmmakerIQ, CheesyCam, etc) without credit. NFS used to be the site everyone else copied, the tables have turned. Solution: return to become the powerhouse NFS used to be, original content, thoughtful posts. Otherwise, we may as well visit the original poster's site... right?
Anyhow, I'll still check in here, I love NFS, but seems like it's in the teenage years of being that snotty rebellious kid you ignore til they grow up a bit. I'd be content moving back to the way it was a few months ago. IMHO.
