Gone rolled up into the General hardware section. We are fighting to get them back along with other things like breaking out the OS's in the OS section etc

Untill then  we are out of luck. The boards response is to use "Tags"  unacceptable IMHO

I agree with Davet50, I have no interest or time for anything but the XPS Threads. The Tags don't help, but rather, are not helpful.

This may get all sorted out eventually, but until or if it does, I cannot spend as much time here as I would prefer.

But here again, Dell does their thing, and disregards the wants and needs of their loyal customers.

Along with the fact that there are only 3 posts per page with no user option for more, plus you can't tell what threads have new posts like you could with the old forum. Added to that are the first few days of general bugginess, which makes me want to ask - did Dell actually do any research amongst forum users before they decided to push out the new changes??

WE WANT OUR XPS FORUM BACK. I agree the 3 posts per page is a joke. The Dell Forums have become very confusing and slow. Plus, how do we get our signatures to show? (Yes it's checked to show signature). Not a happy camper here. :(

I completely agree.  This new forum is not very intuitive at the very least.  Searches don't work, and I'm not able to locate any previous threads I wanted to go over again. :emotion-6:  I don't really know what the reasoning was behind this new forum layout.

Dell says "If it aint broke, fix it" They fixed it alright. LOL!

  Search a tag for XPS, wait fifiteen minutes; if it hasn't erred out it comes back with 0 links. 99% every post I've made had XPS on the tag.

  Yup, it needs broke again.
