Why is this forum so quiet?

Unread post by michelle » Mon Jun 21, 2010 6:56 am

I'm wondering why this forum is so quiet when there's obviously a large user base for TopSolid. Perhaps there's a more active forum in french? Or perhaps it's because this forum setup is a bit 'clunky'... or that the "notify me when a reply is posted" does not work.

Anyone know of another forum for TopSolid?

Hi Michelle!

You´re right, things might be moving a bit slow here but they are still moving! There are questions from users here all the time and i´m impressed with how fast other users come to aid with their "know-how".

The French TS forum has more than 500 members and 9000 articles while the english has only about 290 members and almost 2000 articles.

Considering the fact that there are (i think) about 20000 TS Licences around the world, 290 members on the forum is not alot.
But then again, it´s what we make of it.

I don´t know of any other TS Forum but i do know there are some users that have requested a TS Sub Forum over at 3DCADForums.com you can find the thread here: http://www.3dcadforums.com/site-support ... 813-3.html

I was not aware of the "notify me when a reply is posted" not working. I use an outside notification system so i get notified of any activity on the forum. I will forward this problem to the guys at Missler Software.

You know thinking about it Daniel I had no idea this forum even existed.

It was only after extensively using the forums for another software program that I thought of looking for the TopSolid forum. In fact the company I work at has been using TopSolid for well over 5 years and no one knew at all about the forums.

Perhaps the guys at missler should add a link to the help file as at least as one source of encouragement.

Hi,

Of course it is too late for you, and it is not so easy to find, but th link exists on the Top Solid Website:

http://www.TopSolid.com/support/technic ... dforum.htm

And in the v6 OLH Homepage (I am not using the 7 release) there is a direct link to the forum...
