What happened to the old Cakewalk forum?

Recommended Posts

On Wed, Jan 16, 2019the legacy forums became read-only, meaning members can no long post there. However, they remain in place as a vital information resource, having proved valuable to the community over the years.

+1 for the Deals forum.

How about adding some navigation goodies like menu with the recent post, post popular post, recently visited threads, etc?

Please bring back the Deals forum.  Even though I am a long-time Cake user, it is the reason I visit this site on a regular basis.  You have a volunteer there (Larry) who is super diligent.  It is one of the best such sites in the music forum world and I am sure that it drives traffic here.

If there isn't going to be a "Deals" or "Software" section, we can just do those things in the main SONAR CbB forum, right?

No a more appropriate place would be the coffeehouse

Out of curiosity I clicked the "Hide" button on my comment that you responded to. I see that the comment has completely disappeared, with no way to get it back or even see it. Is this the way it's supposed to work?

We're still getting our sea legs here. 😅Staffers and Admins can see hidden posts, but Noel probably didn't notice the state. Anyway I don't think we need the hide feature, just seems confusing so I'll suppress it for now.

Jesse - I asked this elsewhere, but now I can't find it: What about signatures? They can be darned helpful, and I don't see a way to add them to my profile.

By direct link: https://discuss.cakewalk.com/index.php?/settings/signature/

By navigation:

1. In the user menu, click Account Settings

2. Then in Settings, click Signature

Must have a Deals  section, it was one of the most popular discussion groups.   I came there twice a day to see what plugin, VST Instrument, or amazing offers  I could buy to use with CbB.

 

Please, Please, Please bring it back!!!

I agree!  Deals are a whole separate thing from random conversation.  We need a dedicated space to find and discuss deals without wading through cat pictures and bapu's ramblings. 🤡

I hope members of the old forum will be given a notice one or two days prior to the lock down so they can contribute a "final goodbye" post.  Some have already made such a post but others will likely continue posting until the bitter end.  Some may desire to say some famous last words or something.  😁

What about the Software  forum, especially the Resources and Utilities thread that I used to Moderate along with Elffin?

Yes, exactly what I wanted to say! I don't need to see the nonsense that I and other's post, while I'm looking to spend money I something I don't really need.
