    If I might say you don't have to join Facebook or twitter to leave comments. You can simply open an account with Disqus and then leave comments in the comments section in the player section. The color scheme is unattractive and there are no emoticons, but at least you can leave your comments there if you want too. Personally I'm against this radical change. I loved the forum system from the day I first joined and I'm unable to see any real reason why the change has been made. Only a select amount of people ever used the forums anyway apart end of year countdowns and special events. But it was always a fun experience. And I personally will miss posting in the forums very much.

    Good Idea Dan,. prob mean more listeners as those with media player problems can tune in.


    (I still prefer listening through the player though.... prob through force of habit)


    Been offline for 2 weeks following PC upgrade - glad to see the forum is still here in the format Im used to haha

    Sorry but I cannot get the hang of this. I want to listen and see the tracklist and download the best for later relistening. Like Mark Sherry just now - came in on the tail end, but by the time I found how to work the new system it was on the next DJ. I found one comment - no tracklist yet! I usually leave the page open and when the tracklist and download link comes I can save the list and download. BTW I listen using Rhythmbox in Linux and see the forum in Firefox. I dislike Facebook though I use it for a couple of special groups and do not use Twitter. I love ah.fm and listen when I can - some of the music is outstanding and so very enjoyable.

    so Dan that means we can't comment the show in live sets in the forum anymore? so the fun is over i imagine the EOYC without a thread in the forum to follow it, but ok change is a change we need to get used to it.

    I agree with that the interaction between the members is more personalized and i met in the past several members personally thanks to the AH forum but now with this new system is more cold and empty and not so personal.

    But in another way i understand why the move, because in the forum moderators is needed and that is a huge time consuming to someone try to moderate a live thread and keep it clean from spam and hackers attack and maybe some moderators doesn't have time anymore in theirs lives to be in the forums. So the move is understandable.

    How will people know who you are on twitter or facebook? you just creating a login on disqus nothing is displayed who you are ...

    modding a forum is very time consuming, many users dont wanna use forums ... on their mobile, tablets etc .. that is why a easy system had to be created so users can easily fast comment using any device ... forums are really out dated .. its for hardcore users .. we will have the forum as we have been just shows are now going to be on player ...

    Yes were all used to the forums its been 8 years now .. but i think it was time for change, broaden us up little bit... many new features will come to the player.. its still in early stages...

    New website will also go up, we all will have a nice news sections, dj profiles, info and much more .. we believe the change is needed and will make our lifes and way of communicating much easier...

    As for special events and EOYC it will be also on the player, also with new player the spam level is cut down by 90% ...

    So please understand this was not created to make anyone mad at us, but to make things easier and more vibrant.

    First of all the forums on Afterhours are very clean and classy looking and you have smilies. And in general it looks very smart with the black background to post there. Disqus on the other hand is very bland, far to pale and no smiles. It looks cheap. And in any case if you wanted people to post comments why not have them in the original forums? Was that not what they were created for in the first place? Why create something in Disqus to basically do the same thing but with a very inferior looking interface that Disqus has? By making this change you seem to be catering to people who donít generally post anyway on the site for whatever reason, and are unlikely to be attracted to the cheap looking thing that is Disqus. And oh yes, you keep mentioning the ďhardcoreĒ people who used the forums. Well those ďhardcoreĒ people were the ones who help build the community to what it became, Iím talking about people like Danmark ori and piccoli and others who gave their time to this place over the years and who by posting regularly and with their behaviour to others helped draw other people into the site. Now you take that away and give them Disqus. Itís not good, Dan, whatever you may think. And as for it being a big job for mods. Well surely thatís what a mod is there for, to moderate. I never yet heard of any mod here complaining that they disliked the job, otherwise surely they would not wish to do it, it being a voluntary thing anyway. You either want to do the job or you donít.

    I have a Disqus account. As I don't even have a Facebook account, I don't think anyone knows who I am on Facebook because of it...

    Please return a reference to the current show, from the home page.
    In manual search with the player on the forum show, it is not convenient.

    I like the look of the new comment system, I've yet to use it however so the jury is still out for the overall user experience. Maybe a option to change to different colour schemes could be a possibility? I signed into disqus with facebook and noticed it used my profile picture from there as default, happily there is an option to change your avatar in the disqus settings. I rarely use the forum these days and the shows I listen to I catch up on in my own time via podcasts simply because my free time is considerably more limited to what it used to be and is convenient for me. In my recent visits to the forum I had noticed a considerable drop in useage so I'm not surprised the new comment system has come in, though I don't see any reason they couldn't have run in tandem for a period of time.
