Don't "Leave a Message for the Group"

I appears that some people are entering comments in "Leave a message for the group," in the WordPerfect Office forum, rather than clicking the "+ New" button. This makes it impossible to respond to the message, except by making a comment, which then doesn't show up as an answer.

Why is there a "Leave a Message for the Group" option anyway?

      Who knows.  This is a crappy forum, at least compared to others I visit.  And Corel rarely responds.

    I've found this forum very helpful in answering questions about my favorite software. This is mostly a user to user forum, but Corel sometimes pipes in. If a forum is measured by the knowledge and generosity of its Users, this one is up there.

    The forum site was changed a few years ago. It looks like leaving a query in the "Leave a message for the group" box is not the same as creating a new discussion with "+ New," and makes it impossible to reply to the query, since it is just a "message."

    I should have been more clear.

      I agree whole heartedly with this.

    It is the basic forum operation, navigation, etc. that I do not care for.  Others that I like better use vBulletin as the forum s/w.
