It seems that in order to view the other forum (fusioneer etc. you know) you must have an account. Am I right? It is not a problem for already existing members, but for newbees, or for putting any link up to your site, you always end up with the "register now" message. I think that will put off new Fusion owners or other people with interest. Can't this be changed?

I know Fusionzone is the better one... :P but still :wink:

I think the Club was the first one - as Steve from Hollow Sun was an <admin> and did much to rescue the Fusion's media-damaged reputation by providing some better preset sounds for it (I think I'm right here . . .?)

I think most (but not all) are members in both places.

I have to be honest, I've never really likes the ProBoards user experience.

Having been a longer-time member of the Yamaha Forums UK, I got used to the phpBB way of doing things and I simply like it better. Same goes for the FusionZone.

I <admin> my own forum and I chose phpBB3 - so I have a view from the other side of the counter too . . .

I'm no great expert - but I am happy with it, and from a user's point of view I think its easier to navigate and find stuff, than the ProBoards offering.

I'm sure many will disagree, and that's ok, of course . . . .

Not sure about the non-registered user experience . . .

When the upgrade kicked in - it asked me to log in which I did - so I don't know how much you can do/see, as a guest . . . .

You should be able to browse, just not post or <pm>(IMO)

If I remember correctly, this forum was created first, but there was so much unfair 'slagging off' of the Fusion, that Steve started the other club to give a more balanced view!

Thanks for clearing that up Paul,

As you see I came rather late to the party :oops: and as has been revealed, the Fusion offers more than meets the eye for those with the curiousity and patience to delve deeper . . .

For instance, how many boards offer TRS ins and outs that are switchable (+4dBa/-10dBa)? quite a few expensive boards only provide mono jacks.

This feature alone suggests that the Fusion was designed for a PRO environment . . . IMO :)
