@publicvoit There were BBSes in the 80's that were more advanced than most web forums. The thing I miss most about newsgroups is using a single reader of my choice to participate in multiple communities. The online experience has taken steps backwards in so many ways when it comes to usability.
@CarlCravens I never used BBS (although I'm that old). However, I second the bad UX of #webforums. Absolute basic things like "recognizing what I've already read and what is new" is a total fail in most web forum implementations and I simply do not understand why not everyone is complaining on a daily basis. And this is just one example. 🤷
@publicvoit I remember BBS software where I could log in and press a single button that said, "Show me all the new messages since I last read," and then you just keep hitting 'n' after each message, and you see every new message from every sub-board you're subscribed to. No hunting, no navigating from board to board. I think the only web forum software that does that is $$$, and it still does it poorly.
