Please change this forum software

I'm new to this forum. Seems to be some good information, helpful people, and WU staff that participate. But...this forum web software is the worst I have ever seen. It is impossible to pick up on what are new posts in a thread versus what you've already read. This makes it completely unmanageable and I will not be coming back unless it is changed. Perhaps I'll poke my head in once in a blue moon. I'm pretty knowledgeable about WU related issues and like helping people. The alure here was the ability to reach WU employees. Other than that I think many would be better served by instead going to wxforum.net.

... Also I'd like to add that WU used to frequent wxforum.net. I know things got out of hand during the transition to the new WU website. Now that decimals are back and FTP webcams seem to be working which is great progress, perhaps it is time WU return to wxforum.net. I'm sure they will be well received. There is yet much to fix but I think most will be patient and understanding.

Also this forum is only for API related issues but nobody respects that. If this site had a better forum software it would be more obvious on how to stay on topic. A good forum always has a subforum for people to discuss other related issues. This way API related conversations can also be better handled without all the side noise.
