    Whatever social media they will give attention, i hope they link it to where they give support in the new ui

    https://forum.studio-397.com/index.php?applicationform/support-question.6/form


    I prefer this fórum but whatever they choose, it should treated like the main source of rf2 News and support, i think. Its kind silly team staff givimg support or releasing news in racedepartment or any other than the official channel (at least until ui change)

    edit:seeing now a lot of steam promotions in twitter page

    At least a forum acts as a repository... which people may not bother searching, but they don't on discord anyway and discussions are all over the place there. Half the time someone tags someone else to reply to them and I have no idea what the first person said. Maybe I just don't know how to use it.

    With threads all sitting here you can see what sort of issues people had, find anything recent, gauge trends. Plus I don't jump on at my 'good' time and find people sitting up late on the other side of the world talking about all sorts of crap, or have to search back through 6+ hours of said crap to find what people were talking about when discussions were normal.

    But maybe this is how things are going. Not sure about that comment regarding the forums above either... probably as balanced here as anywhere else, seems to be a fair amount of constructive criticism.

    That’s what l dislike about discord , just so random and messy. Forums and sub forums , search and ‘new post ‘ features are much better in my opinion..

    I like Discord for several reasons, but it isn't messy at all if set up right. There is an announcements channel where you can basicly grad all the news for rF2. Would be good to get it on forums aswell, but social media is the way to go from my perspective.

    Yeah there is no mess in Discord really. Just go to the specific channels and post stuff.
    Also the search feature works better there than here, way better

    The Problem is not that news are posted on social media platforms, but they should also be posted here at the same time.
    Better: everything should be posted at every platform.
    It is no good way to post this thing at twitter only and that thing at facebook only and another thing at discord only.
    For example, i doubt that every rf2 user did notice the from @Coutie posted Announcement on Twitter Link
    I didn't see that announcement here.
    Or is it maybe meant for twitter users exclusively?

    Not agree, I think there have been criticism in many many threads/topics: UI, VR, Reiza pack, you name it... But i what i see most is a friendly community and really good people here.

    I think it's a great idea and gonna open it myself.

    :D Discord is like the ultimate communication platform with ability to talk, post messages just like here and you can have different channels/groups etc etc. A comprehensive communications platform. Can even reach it from browser in case you dont want it installed. Its like teamspeak but much much more. :)

    Edit: Saw your newest post now... I guess you know by now, lol.

    Moving forward is great, but some stuff should stay.

    I don't like any social media especially as they seem to be being used as data gathering machines.
    Programs like Discord being free makes me question it even more. I looked, didn't like what I saw and removed it.

    The new UI is probably is going to be useful but frustrating to have to learn what has changed.
    Getting old is a bitch!

    Fórum is public. You dont have to login to search and read. No need to follow anyone or anything.
    I think at least official support and updates should still exclusive to this fórum.
    I would be glad if twitter and discord was only for chatting, announcements, promotions, new releases, etc... Eventually, who doesn´t want to engage in another social app, will get the News about promos, releases, etc...
