I am only an occasional visitor to the forum, but since the changeover there seem to be fewer posts and replies, or is it just me?
I’ve only been on the forum a few weeks. So I can’t compare.
I agree I expect a lot like me find the new forum quite difficult.
Some haven’t been able to get switched over, others got frustrated at having to set up new accounts, and a large number are having a lot of trouble with the new site. It’s lost its humor and camaraderie.
The whole site is only concerned by MS matters, the treatments, the equipment, how life changes, heaven forbid it if folk wish a little light entertainment, we all have our ups and downs, we live with it 24/7 so any spice-for want of a better word-is welcomed, I, myself was last on here more than a year ago but questions being asked make it seem like only last week, main object is come on here then slit your wrists
I’ve only just seen your post. Only been back on here for a couple of weeks. No, it isnt half as busy as it was. People dont always embrace change…especially where techno stuff is involved…meaning me!
Nice to see familiar names, like your’s.
Hello to you too. Hope you’re well. Pretty much given up on here now xx
Am inclined to agree. Pretty much given up on this site now xx
I’m with Corrie on this. We’ve tried to liven it up a few times but keep getting shot down.
And yet there are still many, many posts from newly diagnosed, people with symptoms who are worried about being diagnosed. There is still traffic on the site, less these days, but still people looking for help and advice or posting useful information.
I agree, there’s less in the way of fun and laughter, but can’t agree that the forum is no longer useful and relevant.
Oh, it’s still useful, and I’m glad it’s here for the newbies, but it’s just not fun any more. I came on here originally to learn about other people and forget my problems for a while, and we just don’t have that any more.

The fact that you’re even on here gives hope to us!
You really are an inspiration Ellie. Thank you for being you.
Big hugs xx
