New Forum format has lost all history
With this new forum, all the history of back channel messages are gone. When I go to my account, I cannot even find prior posts and commented topics. It behaves as if I am a brand new user.
And just what does Create New Story do?
The commented topics option, should be visible from your account on the right side menu bar. However so far I have found this to be flakey, sometimes it is there and other times it has disappeared.
As for the 'Story' link it apparently is there to display information to visitors. I get the feeling that this is meant to be a replacement for the old 'sticky' and is really meant for Acronis to impart information.
