The new nVidia forum has left users frustrated over the way the old forums worked. The new forum has the old content but it is not accessible like the old forum was able to.
The old forum was slow as nobody was expert enough to manage the database. Talent is expensive so evidently the change, while expensive was the direction they company wanted to take.
Managing a database requires some skill but it’s not impossible. In computer programming, create, read, update, and delete (CRUD) are the four basic functions of persistent storage. The use of native SQL is not impossible to master. PHP can build rich web applications with a basic CRUD core.
On a 1366×768 display the new forum is very compressed compared to the old version. nVidia seems to want users to move to 1920×1080 as a minimum.
nVidia has tried several times to get the new forum working and it looks like its a complete flop. The old topics such as drivers are nowhere to be found.
