I'm with you all. Absolutely. Everything said ist spot on. This so-called new Help Center is idiotic and useless. And thanks to all who have so passionately participated on this now gracelessly dying forum - I've learned so much and always found an answer when I needed it. Shame on Make Music. Customer Success? Ha!

Ironic indeed. And foreboding.

What MM doesn't fully realize, I think, is that Finale is so arcane that a customer support person, no matter how smart, is going to have limited knowledge compared with someone who has lived with the program day in and day out for 10 years or more. I know these forums have been invaluable to me.

The new forums are terrible for several reasons, and I'm not sure are workable for me. I wonder if they've signed some multi-year contract or could instead find something better.

I guess my 14 years of providing help and advice is coming to an end. I will not use the amateurish and badly constructed "new" help forum. I'll miss the troll--among others.

I vote for keeping this forum as well. I am not comfortable with the other format, and my forum days might be coming to an end. Too bad.

You're heading into the wrong direction, I'm afraid. As for the "Feature Request" Forum: Adam, three months ago, you promised to consider how to make this forum more effective, do you remember?: https://makemusic.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/218091567-Here-is-a-request-about-this-Forum . Nothing has happened since. Instead of moving misplaced threads to the appropriate General Discussion Forum, you don't seem to care: https://makemusic.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/community/posts/214070088-Using-Cross-staff-notes-in-FinalePrintmusic2014- . The Feature Request Forum is a good idea in general, but if you don't moderate it and don't seem to care about your own Feature Request House Rules ( https://makemusic.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/community/topics/200449177-Finale-Feature-Requests ), better close it, please.

And another thought: in today's times, when Dorico's chief developer spends lots of time to answer questions on their forum personally, do you really think it would enhance Finale's customer's success if you replace this forum by new ones? I don't think so. Instead it's time to get in touch directly with the users like e.g. Randy Stokes did in former times here.

Without substantial improvements, improvements that were recommended when you first brought out this new site for Finale users I can only reiterate my initial response.
What kind of idiots do you have working for Make Music to believe this is acceptable?

To many queries get no response whatsoever, and some are not answered in any depth that is needed.

I'd really like to know your thought process' in the decision that this is of any benefit to the user base in its current form?

You are making a big mistake. The new forum is worthless in its current format. There is no way to see who made the last comment without going into the thread. Posting files or pictures is unwieldy. "Voting" on comments is absurd.

I will strongly suggest that current users bring their years of expertise, and come join us on the "other" Finale forum, at http://www.finaleforum.com.

These forums were originally created to provide a way for our passionate Finale users to share ideas, provide valuable input, and find answers from our community. A number of other great public forums for discussion about our products and best practices have become available since this platform first began. These include Facebook, SHSU, Twitter, Yahoo and various other forums and blogs. Also, as many of you know, the release of our new Help Center over the summer provides another avenue for discussion and input.

In an effort to provide a centralized, accessible, and most of all, helpful community for all of our customers, we are focusing our resources on the new forums in our Help Center Community. As of January 1st, 2017, we will only monitor and support these new forums. At that time these existing forums will be locked.

We want this large body of valuable information to remain available, so while these forums will be locked at the end of the year, they will be archived so that they can still be accessed by those looking for any of the helpful historical information located here.

We want to thank you for the value you’ve already provided to MakeMusic and its customers in these forums, and we look forward to seeing you in our new Help Center Community!

Best,

Adam Wig
Director, Customer Success
