Just wondering! Where did the "My Posts" link go?!
Can't seem to find them.
UPDATE: I just found them. 😁
So, this big update to GS Community, and you thought that infinite scrolling without any page numbers on lengthy topics, only 4-5 main categories, and honestly just a horrible layout was the right way to go? Was the intention to get people to stop using the forum? If so, well done. It's virtually impossible to find a topic. I had to go in to my profile to find a reply that I made to a post and then click load more a few times to get to the end of the discussion just to see if there was anything new going on.
I don't mean to be negative, and as soon as I received the e-mail this morning I migrated over to the new platform, but honestly? This is crazy.
Same for me. There are two golden rules that should be always followed:
This rework is really embarrasing. Even the numbered list doesn't work properly.
I'd like Graphisoft to work harder improving Archicad tools, functions and capabilities, and stop messing around on things like the forum, which was working flawlessly untill they screwed it up.
We deserve better, frankly.
Just one week into the new "combined" forum/helpcenter, and I am not at all amused! 🙄
Why o why has Graphisoft decided to merge these two, inherently different, information channels into one? I am even at loss as to where the AC manuals have gone!
It just isn't logical to have knowledgebase articles, tutorials and video's thrown in with all the user generated data which a forum holds.

In this post I answer that question:
Maybe somebody thought of this already, but I would think that people using ACTalk in emergency situations (as opposed to just landing here brought in by Google) are using large and very large screens. This whole layout appears designed as if for phone screen users (although it is a waste of space on small screens too), which regardless of what statistics may say are not the users coming here for help, or while using Archicad. This format (waste of screen space, little content captured at a glance, need for a lot of clicks and blind navigation) is upsetting, repelling. There must be good reasons for wanting to make a switch, but I am finding the whole thing in its current shape irritating. I only finally came in after so many weeks in a case of extreme urgency, can't picture myself browsing this, and I really wish it gets fixed.
Of course it was a little shock for me too at first, but now after tuning my settings I am used to using the new forum. I would now even say I like it. So thank you GS staff. Thanks to long time moderators too, you seem to have survived in there also 😉.
One note though: When I am looking at "Most Recent" and clicking the "Load More" and visiting some topic, and then you want to go back to the list, it throws you at the first 10 topics list. You need to hit "Load More" again to visit earlier topics. And if you want to go even further back in time you need to hit "Load More" even more times. I don't know if this could be fixed in the forum engine or not, but I solved this in my prefs to show me 50 topics at once. Now I don't need "Load More" so much, at least if I visit the forum frequently enough.
I managed to format my signature too. Did not find how to make line spacing smaller though. It seems Khoros user/help communities/forums are partly hidden/forbidden from guests reading them I think.
But overall this is all good for me now.
