Community is missing discussions on products you already own

Is it just me or does the Forum seem more like a marketing tool lately instead of a forum? It's a lot easier to find new product info than discussions on products you already own these days it seems.

Possibly an edict from the new(ish) corporate overlords?

    Sounds ok. It is part of the official website ;)

    I can't see that. At least not with the POV from a Traktor user.

    One thread about the new X1 mk3 and a ton of other threads about all the other gear. Mostly troubleshooting though.

    You might read conspiracy into it a bit too much ;)

    We haven't change anything lately and if you are looking closely we announce product with discussions directly with the product teams (which members have been asking forever) and not "go buy the new x,y or z"

    Literally 95% of the community is discussions on product folks already have.

    ps : I edited your title because "forum" was a bit vague

    You are referring to sticky threads about X1 and S-series right?

    Other than that, discussions about the gear we already own is everyday life here.

    The edited title is somewhat misleading, @Matt_NI

    My issue is that when I open my browser to the forum all I see is info on products that should be on your product pages and not taking up valuable 'Top of the Page' space on the forum. What you traditionally come to the forum for is now at least one click, if not two, away instead of being front and center like it used to be and how it is on most forums. Pardon my cynicism, but since this coincides with the acquisition of a majority stake in NI by Francisco Partners and the reorganizing of NI into the Soundwide umbrella company, it's hard to read the changes otherwise.
