The once again new forums.oracle.com

forums.oracle.com has come back online once again. An upgrade attempt in June was rolled back after the upgraded version had been "in play" for a few days. After the rollback, some posts were lost and some identities were lost.

Two weekends ago, forums.oracle.com was offline for maintenance. This Saturday (for most of the world that lives outside USA) it was offline again.
Now that it is back,

a. font size cannot be adjusted in MSIE. I might as well stop using forums.oracle.com

b. The new Legends of "Guru", "Expert", "Pro", "Journeyman" and "Newbie" are so so .... so ... what shall I say ? We have already suffered "Oracle ACE"s and "Oracle ACE Director"s. And now I suffer being labelled a "Newbie" until some unknowns start awarding me 5 points for "Helpful" answers and 10 points for "Correct" answers so that I must accumulate points to becoming a "Journeyman" and then a "Pro".

It might well be very very very soon time to say goodbye to forums.oracle.com and return to, say, google groups ?

Update : This thread is active on forums.oracle.com (so I am still logging in there yet !).

please do not leave the forums. I have read some of your blogs and they are very useful to newbies like me!

I'll give you as many points as you like ;)
