Can't post photos any more, and advanced edit file upload always fails. Now can't even get back to forum from the bottom of the page...

Was once a good site. Falling downhill very fast.

I am afraid I have to agree.
I have not seen the improvements yet?
Harder to view and see where you have already been now especially on phone.

Look bottom right at the forum jump, if you are in "Jets" just hit "Go".

I like it, been through many changes on RCU over the years. People, especially older ones don't like change, but they get used to it and slowly as they learn the complaining dies down.

except with rcgroups you can select to see all pics in a thread with one click vs having to look through tons of pages

the word grep is tuned off too so far, been looking for dry weights and haven't found any

I don't think they're done yet

Actually I'm quite fond of change, as long as it doesn't suck.

I have no problem with change as long as it's for the better. It's rare anymore that I go online from a PC, it's usually my phone, and the new site sucks on my phone now. It's more difficult to just scroll threads and read the posts on my phone than it ever was. It looks very plain and stagnant now, like most other forums out there. At least it looked somewhat unique before.

What really blows me away is they take the time and expense to change the forum, but the search feature is still one of the absolute worst on any forum I've been too. Still can't find crap with the search feature........

RCGroups is by FAR better than this forum, and I cant figure out why people continue to post here! If all the jet guys would post on RCG then would that not be the better forum?( all ready is imo) and much easier to use? It has by far a better uploader for photos and a search engine that actually works. You don't get logged out for no reason and the pages and photos load instantly! What more do you want?

Photos load beautifully in posts. Problem is they are ads right in the middle of posts.

I agree, RCGroups is a much better site, there large EDF section is a great place to learn some things.

It so much easier to post and put pictures on RCGroups, but there Turbine section is completely dead.
