Thread: Why can't the Run 8 Forum help their users?

  1. #1

    Default Why can't the Run 8 Forum help their users?

    I have been reading the posts about Run 8 because I am interested in new programs and want to find out what they have to offer and user experiences. That can't be done on the Run 8 forum, because they won't even let you look at the forum or see their videos unless you register, which I find really bizarre. Every forum I have ever joined, you were always allowed to browse the forum prior to registering , you just couldn't post or possibly search. Well anyway, I have noticed many posts on this forum with owners of Run 8 trying to find out how it Run 8 works , how to start the Locos, how does their Multiplayer work, etc...etc,.... My question is, if Run 8 has their own forum dedicated to their users, I would think that the people posting these question here on this forum just are not able to get the answers to their questions on their own Run 8 forum, and are coming here instead for help. Is that what is happening, and if so, it doesn't bode well for the support of their own forum?

    With all due respect, people are there asking for support, and they're receiving it. It's been mentioned numerous times through the 6 or so threads that are currently going about Run 8. The people in charge of Run 8 have been hosting almost around the clock new user training sessions including Nick and Sean helping out as well.

    Is there any likelihood of a Run8 section being created? It would give those interested in Run8 a place to discuss it just like the other sim specific forums here and keep the general board cleaned out.

    Sorry if I missed the answer to that along the way some where.

    Has anyone given a thought to contacting Nels and asking him about setting up a Run 8 section?
    He is, after all, the man to go to for this.

    With all do respect, you didn't answer the question I asked, which I thought was rather simple. Why are people asking questions on this forum, when the obvious place to get these answers would be on the Run 8 forum , providing that their questions were being addressed there.

    They are being addressed but, as you mentioned, you have to be part of the clique in order to not only post but also view.

    And that alone seems to be good enough reason to have a Run 8 forum here on TS.com - where anyone who is interested can read the posts.

    Well, if you want a Run-8 board then email Nels and tell him yourself.
