I didn’t say it’s a problem. I’m trying (in my small way) to get participation up, but these posts don’t invite participation.
This forum needs discussions. We’re not going to get them with uncommented links to random stories.
With the malfunctioning forum main page, it’s hard enough to see when new posts take place. If the posts then don’t invite response and discussion, then these forums will fail.
We’re waiting for WD developers to fix the failings with how this was implemented. But this is something we as participants can do to improve the odds of success.
