My opinion:

1.
Personal opinion

I don't like the new forum. I don't enjoy navigating in it, I don't find its new features practical, I don't consider it as one of the most user-friendly sites as I did before. I'm disapponted, and, I'm sorry to say, Mike (TSG) bears a share of responsibility. I would prefer my site closed rather than in a lower quality, just to exist. I'm not against change. But change for the best.

2. Malware Removal Forum:
  • I agree with McBoatMaster and 2twenty2. Long story short.
  • Having the User to mark a topic as Solved, is not good at all. I am the one I will say the topic is solved. Because a computer seems to run well, that doesn't seem it is clean.
  • Having anyone to reply to Malware Removal Forum, simply closes the Malware Removal Forum. You ignore the expertise, and you don't care about the site's reputation because of ... permissions?? Would you then consider returning to Xenforo, where these permissions are available? What is this Fora software, which doesn't give permissions for these things? Sorry, guys, but if anyone can give solutions in the Malware Removal forum, no Malware Expert has a place here. It is just ... offending.

P.S.

Latest posts at the end of the page? And this can't change?

A contributor is the one he writes the most posts?

A user's name changed, and you can't bring it back?

Recommended Communities at the site bar? Here, we were not allowed to insert a link from our sites, even if this link was explaining things to a user! Now we have recommended communities for any irrelevant thing?

I've probably said too much but I think Mike deserves nothing but thanks for what he has given us. Nothing lasts forever. :)
I agree, Karen.

It is what Mike created all these years we are trying to protect.

It is not fair for him, for you and for anyone who made their best to take something which is not at least the same as before.

Hi, Drabdr.

What I said, it was because I didn't know that Mike sold the Forum and now he has nothing to do with it. Of course. You sell something and that's it. Since that is the case, I take back what I said. I deeply appreciate what Mike did, and as I mentioned above, it is what he did we are trying to protect. So, I express my apologies and I would like to leave that here.

On a more positive note, we did manage to get our name back!
Nice!

I prefer, however, when I click on that name to go to the Forums, not the Recommended for me (who says that) posts.I know, I can do that when I click on the icon beside NEW, but we are talking about a name and the content associated.

Another User asks to donate and I just said that donations are not available right now. I can't tell them just go and become a Premium member to show your gratitude. Suggestions?

And there is also something else. Where are these donations going? To the company (VerticalScope), right? I don't have a problem with that, it's a business after all, but it is different for a person to donate to a site which doesn't have a profit aim, and needs the donations to continue being alive, and to a company which makes profit already via the site. In other words, we help people voluntarily and free, people thank us, want to show their gratitude to us and t the site, and donate, but these donations go to the VS company as an extra profit. In a similar aspect, it was different for me to be a part of a team giving help voluntarily and free without seeking for a profit, and now be a part of a team which helps people for free, but at the same time helps a company to grow up. I'm not good at these, and perhaps my thoughts are not correct, but I don't like this, if this is the case. I am a member in many other sites which give computer help/malware removal assistance, and now this is the only site that belongs to a company. I am happy there to see people donate, but I'm confused here.
