RIP the old forum
well, it is done. barring some kind of archive being made available, an unfortunate catastrophic data loss. well, anyway, here is one file i made sure to see about having a backup of, an implementation of linear predictive coding by gabriel mulzer (that is occasionally unstable, never could figure out why) which extracts or predicts a filter model of an input signal, and also 'whitens' the signal as a neat side effect by way of prediction error
That is an unfortunate development. A big part of the attraction of the NI forum was the history and the wealth of knowledge. That was the USP over Discord or facebook!
Now we have none of the depth of information, and we can't even see if there are new posts in the sub forum without clicking through to look... that's progress I suppose ;)
...Some of it is available in archive.org, but I'm not sure about attachments and the like.1
checked the wayback yesterday and it looked like all the threads were there. I don't see attachments being included since they were only available upon login and I have to assume search is probably also broken
in another thread @Matt_NI said they had everything backed up on their end. maybe we can bug them to get us an archive of at least the attachments
wonder if discord would be able to host them if they end up being a couple GB?0
It's really very sad.
They should have kept the old forum as a knowledge base...2
We do have back-ups but it's more than a couple of GB. The entire community was millions of comments. I'm not sure how you'd host that on Discord thought. You have a feature for forum like discussion on there but doubt you can dump that much content from an external source.
I imagine you're interested in the Building for Reaktor area? Or the all of Reaktor as well?0
NI had a Knowledge base (was called by some "the other forum" between the old and the actual) but I dunno if it's still working or not.0
Our support area is a knowledge base if that's what you meant: https://support.native-instruments.com/hc/en-us
It's also searchable here and comes up as Knowledge Base in the search result1
Nice! I found it useful and it will a shame lose that too…1
since it was pretty common to post threads in the main forum which likely belonged in the building section, ideally it'd be both
perhaps it could be hosted onto archive.org?2
I had so much invaluable bookmarks in there.
i took time one day to copy paste the most valuable ressources.
there was also plenty of useful tips for non supported hardware.
I definitely learned a lot along those threads . They’ll be missed for sure2
I don't really know how archive.org works myself but I can suggest it.2
Another nail, sad times.3
Wow, after coming back to reaktor after a break this is a major blow. I had so many bookmarks and was looking forward to get back to my project knowing all the things I need are there in the forum. Why not just keep the old forum?4
Why not just keep the old forum?
NI hasn't enough space on their server?0
I doubt it's that, but it's tricky to get into a discussion of what it might be without breaking forum rules, so lets just leave it :)
We have a new forum, the old one is gone, and that is that!
Lets see if the new forum layout brings more users to the Reaktor sub section... There are quite a few new posts from new folk recently, so maybe it will...2
How would that break forum rules?
We already made the choice to move to a new place. Without even going into the technical details, it doesn't make sense to have two community open at the same time. It's terrible for both communities since they are competing against each other on Google and it doesn't help us get more people involved.
I'm pretty sure we'll get more people involved long-term than on the old community.0
