On May 1st 2015 we were offline for a big update, you probably noticed the site looks very different than it did before! There was a major version update of our forum software, the upgrade went smoothly and we are excited for all the new features. 

Q&A Technical Forum:
Our technical forum now follows a Q&A format. Users can now vote on answers and the poster or a moderator can mark which one is correct. It's also easy to see which questions don't have an answer yet, so if you have suggestions or know the correct answer, head over and help out your fellow community members.

Login Providers:
We've enabled logins via Twitter, this will make logging in and creating new accounts a lot easier and faster, so check that out. If you already have an account you can link your twitter account here in your account settings. We will also add Facebook and Google+, but there are some issues with these platforms right now. You can also import or export (post to Twitter, Facebook, etc.) your status updates if you would like. You can also pull your profile picture from twitter into the forum.

If you have any suggestions for anything Digilent does, including the forum, let us know in the suggestions section

Evidently, one of the changes seems to be that users have to allow scripting in their browser to use the site. With Firefox 78.6 I can't highlght text in a post as a quote to start a reply... in fact I can't do anything with script blockers turned on. This is a change from my experience on Centos 6, which along with every other version of Centos except Centos 7 and Centos Stream has been killed of by Red Hat recently. I really don't like allowing any web site to run whatever script they want behind my back... it's a big problem for me.

Hi @zygot,

I've asked one of our web people to look into this. My guess is that there is some sort of site tracking happening, though I don't know for certain. I do know that I'm still able to highlight and quote text in Firefox 84.0.2 successfully, though I don't have any script blockers specifically (though I do have an ad blocker).
