I've been on the old site at least once a day every day for probably the last 10 years and it's surprising me how easy the changeover is. I hit the wrong bookmark this morning and man the old gcc is a ghost town
Same here. I've preached for years about it being nearly impossible to migrate everyone from an old forum to a new one. Too many people splinter off, no one can decide which new forum is to be the "one" and many don't want to leave the old forum. But VS did the one thing that would push everyone out, they locked it down for too long and by some miracle, the post was up on the front page of ShitChat to come here. But either way, I don't log in to the old site anymore. It lost it's meaning a long time ago and has just circled the drain since then.
I stopped going shortly after VS took it over. I got ridiculed by a lot of people, because I told them things were going to change. Guess what. Things changed I dont miss that place one bit,but I am happy to have this place.
Easy switch for me, I saw the link for here and signed up. I've been back like maybe three times and have since deleted the bookmarks. I didn't contribute anything noteworthy so no great loss to walk away. Also I looks like any tech can be asked and the same wealth of info will be here.
This is my go too for sure. But I still watch over there as well. I have noticed the change in coming here as a habit and I am not disappointed. The group of assholes here is like nowhere else I have found.
