I gave up. Its not for me
Same here, this forum is a much better place for that sort of thing, warts and all.
They still need to do something about their search engine though, there's no excuse for how crappy it is! :evil:

For forum-search, I bookmarked: http://www.google.com/search?&q=site:forum.ableton.com

-> http://www.google.com/search?&q=site:fo ... %20answers

-> http://www.google.com/search?&q=site:fo ... c%20sends"

this combined with a time frame e.g "within last week" works great

-> http://www.google.com/search?&q=site:fo ... "&as_qdr=w

-> http://www.google.com/search?&q=site:fo ... s&as_qdr=d

or e.g. http://duckduckgo.com/?q=site:forum.abl ... %20answers

Just be aware, the + operator (used to force words and phrases to appear in search results) isn't working anymore in Google - "you" "have" "to" "use" "quotes" "now". :x

I usually just come here and click view new posts - sometimes they are requests for help that I think I can answer, so I do.

Now I have to think "Oh I feel particularly altruistic today - I wonder if there is someone I can help on Ableton Answers" - not as likely to happen IMO
+1 here also!

Not at all - we closed UHE because we believe that we have a much better platform for users helping each other in Answers, not to mention the Knowledge Base and new support contact forms. In general, the Support section is much more informative and easier to access to now - check it out and please don't hesitate to share your thoughts.
It's good that you replied official stance as a official person.
because he was going to go on a poorly worded posting rampage if you hadn't.

i posted a question in Answers during the beta. my settings must have been set to send me an email for replies. i probably wouldn't do that on a forum post, but in Answers the posts do seem to be more dialed in, on topic, dry, dull, right, and wrong... short, sweet. etc. That is to say, i haven't bothered to change the email setting because it is pretty non-intrusive and/or specific. it seems like Answers is good for answers but geared more toward fact than opinion - if that makes sense.

forums are for discussion right?

agree
agree too

and that also means that every unanswered question in the UHE will stay unanswered forever, which is kinda lame

Man, that new 'Answers' solution is fucking annoying. I can't find ANYTHING with ease and the interface is atrocious. Why kill a perfectly good solution, even if it did have some noise? At least the search on this forum works. Booh, Ableton. BOOH!

Given his regular, compulsive use of the words "noob" and "macfag", what you're seeing may be more readily explained by the Dunning-Kruger effect and neurotic insecurity.

I see it as a cry for help.

Nice comment given by the warez noob. He says he still wants to get help from legit users.
