I know we've just moved to Discussions and away from Forums, but I hope this all gets cleaned up within the next few weeks. To be frank, I can't find anything.
This part of the site is designed to hold fan polls and short posts about favorite episodes, it's clearly not designed to help people navigate the complex discussions about the future of the site. There's no search option, and every post (even posts which are closed?) are laid out in full. I just had to scroll past a very long post about how 1960s canon works, which was closed, yet I was shown all of it. Not saying the post shouldn't exist, but why is it at the top and in full?
Also, it seems like posts appear based on time instead of when they get new responses. So, in other words, the algorithm prefers posts made within the past day. I might be wrong, but if this is the case it is unsatisfactory. The only reason some debates get along on this site is they keep getting "bumped" to the top. If you literally have to find the old thread link to even come across some of the busiest debates on the site, then the system isn't working!
Now the admins on here work for free, and I know you guys are probably just as confused about all this as the regular editors, so of course, I understand that things won't work out right away, and that's ok. But I was hoping the eventual move would make it easier for casual editors to take part in this discussion, not harder! I think we can use this to open up our debates to the proletariat editors, as it were.
I'm just still very excited about a select few debates which are months / years old, and I'm hoping we can get back to those soon!
