Just to point out, the Rogers Forum software is provided by and / or run by Lithium, so, any critique might be better placed if it was aimed at Lithium. All depends on whether or not there may have been any forum software updates recently, or, if its just a matter that the Rogers server, and several other servers are running slow. @RogersRoland was looking after these issues but I'm not sure if he's around anymore.
If you run IpvFoo, you can see the various sites that provide input to the forum, so, there is a chance that its not specifically a Rogers issue with the forum running slow. Here's the output of IpvFoo. In my case I have IPV6 disabled:
I just completed a response and, when I pressed Post, it indicated the page was not found and i lost everything i had typed.
Just another reason i indicated this website is not helpful, friendly or useful to Rogers customers.
I now must copy my text every few lines, to ensure i don't lose it.
Let's not get technical with responses to concerns. The average Rogers customer wouldn't understand or want to take the time to investigate.
From a customer perspective, this forum is owned by Rogers and Rogers has decided it is not worth investing in improvements.
If Rogers is interested, they would be reviewing customer concerns on the forum or expecting a summary from the forum support people.
Rogers is a communications company and is expected to be effective in communicating with its customers.
This is not effective communication.
I am curious what other customer think...if they can locates this topic.
@cwrbI take it you do all your Internet access with your cellphone. I don't know if that's the norm now, but I most certainly wouldn'r want to do it on a small handheld device with a 3" screen. I don't have any stats on how people use the Internet, but it looks like more and more people are accessing with cellphones. While I certainly support making smartphone access and browsing easy, I hate seeing stuff totally geared to the tiny vertical screens. The preponderance of those awful vertical videos is a good example.
What is happening with this community forum website?
When I respond to a forum email, I am taken to the item...but after that I am lost.
1.it asks me to input my userid/password which seems to take forever.
2. I make a response and I am then taken somewhere else where I can't locate the question I responded to.
3. I have no idea whee to go next.
This is stupid and a ridiculous forum supp vehicle.
Rogers, get your smartphone community forum support in order!
Hello: Many of us hang around this forum a lot. Although it's not the fastest in the world, it is usually quite adequate. I'm not sure if there's something specific to your device or location or browser that is causing you problems with speed. Perhaps you could try a different device or a different location or different browser to see if you have a hardware, location, software, firmware problem.
As for using the forum, perhaps the following link will be useful. Usually before posting it's a good idea to navigate around the forum for a while (called lurking) or search for specific items.
When you click on an e-mail link, you may end up in different places depending on what the e-mail is about. For example, it can be about someone mentioning you, or that you have a PM, etc. What you do then depends on where you end up.
You may wish to configure your profile, settings, subscriptions, etc by clicking on your icon at the top-right of the screen after you've logged in.
