Congratulation Jim!!

 

We appreciate all the hard work, effort, and political infighting it took to get these changes done. We know you have our backs!

Great work; coming from a familiar, beloved? but legacy system to one that's fresh, responsive, adaptable &  future-ready. Kudos to you & the team.

Jim, This new forum is a million times better than the old one, and this is due to your efforts. Thanks very much. The ease of adding images is so huge. I look forward to even more improvements.

The Forum is much more appealing, easier to use and has a lot more automation and customization.

Works really well.

Totally agree with everything said above, I love this format. It is much easier to keep track of what you missed, to move around, post and contribute. Thank you for updating, my frustration with the old forum has all but gone away. I love it.

Best

The new forum is great.  Great job @JimWand your team on putting it together.  Far more user friendly.  The tag and search is way better and love the drag and drop

of files.  The wishlist voting tool is also great.

I am going to counter the current trend of congratulations.  I miss the old forum....I used to get work done.  Now with this new slick forum - I spend my whole day nerding out and arguing with like-minded VW geeks.  I worry about my job.

See, the trick is to get a software company to pay you to talk/joke/debate/argue with VW geeks all day ;)

 ^ This. This is why I like my job. (Well, one of many reasons, really.)

Thank you! My team is awesome and the other departments here that made a lot of this possible are to thank as well. It may LOOK like I do it all but without them I'd be huddled under a desk surrounded by eternally ringing phones ;) Hopefully their roles will become more visible and more discussion can occur between employees and the public as things progress!

A few years ago as a new forum member I remember saying to a friend how bad the forums were. I am not talking about the software but the general feeling and community spirit. I came from a non architecture forum and just thought that's how things were.

 

Fast forward to now and the difference is day and night. Jim has to take a fair amount of credit but there are so many helpful people on here and it all feeds on itself and just gets better.

 

As for the new forums: Build it and They Will Come
