@Zimberto are you being serious ? Other forums I frequent lock threads down after a certain length of time and encourage you start new threads, probably due to a lack of traffic. This forum has a lot of traffic, from both posters and readers, I guess it just boils down to the fact that it is not the place for you, you will find your place eventually

I think the place does OK.

Imagine walking into a party of people you don't know. Turning off the music, putting your own on. Loudly announcing you hate the paint scheme and they should knock through the the kitchen....

Perhaps set your own forum up, put your own cash in and make it they way you want.

I'm sure feedback is greatly received by Glenn but only our first post when you haven't bothered really to say hi or contribute is well, it's just not cricket.

I get it. But i'll introduce myself if I decide to stay. Why would I bother otherwise? And to take your analogy...

 

Imagine going to a party in someone's house and finding that there were 50 rooms with one or two guests standing in each room. How would you deal with that? You'd probably leave pretty quickly and wonder why the host hadn't corralled everyone into the kitchen and the living room.

I bet it’s nice to have the time to go trolling round lots of forums..

 

Personally this forum suits my needs and I have everything thing I need. I’ve visited Home Barista, and although it’s full of info, I’m not struck on the layout.

 

If you don’t like it, don’t use it. There’s no need to anounce your departure either as I doubt anyone will miss you. After all there’s no introduction so I guess you’ve no intention of stopping. Would be nice to be proved wrong though.

 

Anyway, welcome :)

Hey guys, I come to the party, I haven’t been invited, no one knows who I am. I tell everyone that the party is disorganised and rubbish - I don’t want to say the four letter synonym - but I may hang around if I decide to do so.

 

Really....

 

Wish you all the best and hope you have a great time. Sayonara.

This is not a house, it's a forum about coffee, and most members here are way more interested in coffee than most. People find this forum because they are interested in coffee or on the verge of being so. They will find lots of great information here and I think that's more important than the number of categories. I don't make espresso so I just stay out of the espresso categories.

 

Having many categories is pretty common on forums focused on narrow topics. It's not a forum aimed at your average person who drinks coffee. Not that most of them would ever look for a place to discuss coffee on the Internet in the first place.

What a rude, obnoxious person. You are most certainly not what our forum is all about - had you taken time to delve into how things are here then you may have chosen not to join as it doesn’t meet your requirements. I am baffled as to why you did join really . . .

The number of subforums is proportionate to the usage of them

 

We started with 3 and have organically grown over the past 10 years into a thriving community, with sections to allow other like-minded member to discuss their machine/grinder or process in a structured manner

 

Most people use New Posts and then if needing to dig deeper can select the relevant subforum

 

There is no plan (that I am aware of) to change this structure

I like the forum layout, it allows you to get some very specific information rather than wading through generic threads. Like others, my daily consumption is through new posts or subscribing to specific sections/threads.

New Posts is my 'go to' always. My only criticism is the search function which isn't very friendly. Otherwise, the organisation of forums and sub-forums makes perfect sense.


Rocket Giotto Evoluzione v2, Eureka Zenith 65E, Niche grinder, Pharos grinder with VoodooDaddy mods, Eureka MDL, Torr Goldfinger, Smart Tamp. Various coffee stuff.

The one good thing about this thread is I never knew that there was a "new posts" option (maybe time for an eye test?)

The other good thing about it is we can redirect future morons directly to here if they're brexiting around another thread!

All 5 of his posts are on this sorry excuse for a thread so I think we're safe!
