Infinite scroll is only one of the many things that have changed. The Forums on it's own is a brand new system. We literally started from the ground up at every corner, with brand new hardware, software and design. As I stated previously, infinite scroll is a core component of the forums platform that we use. And getting feedback on the other changes is vital to knowing where we need to focus our efforts at changing something for the better.
Can you point me in the direction of the thread you're referring to?
The purpose of this thread and the entire Community Feedback category is to do just that - give the community members a way to voice feedback, concerns, questions, comments, etc. Now does that mean we will agree with every request made or reverse every decision that hits an impasse with some members, no. But it gives us a place for constructive, civil discussion.
As for the moderation on inappropriate language, two posts were flagged. Neither were deleted. No warnings were given, No infractions were given. No bans, temporary or permanent were handed out. A simple request was made to change 4 words in _bob's post, which he changed to another string of inappropriate words, and one word in tommor's post. No other changes were requested.
We live and operate in a global community, so we have to be mindful of different cultures. And while what is said may not offend us, or you, or even maybe the majority of the rest of the members, if what one says does offend a minority, we have to respect that in the same way if another member says something that offends you.
We're already working on several fixes and changes to things that seem out of place or different, and all we ask for is patience and a willing to try something new.
