I followed a link to the old DU from the new DU. How do I get here from the home page?

I'm lost as hell. And I really don't like the new DU.

7. It's an "interesting experiment" in the New Internet..for "political discussion"...for sure...
Not everyone's taste. :-( So...Here we are..as long as it lasts.

8. I totally agree. It truly sucks.
So...what are we going to do when they shut down the old DU? It's a shame not to have a community to go to. The new DU is "Love Conservative Democrats.com"

14. I wouldn't go that far... I think the Admins took pains
To make the new site look like the old site (this site).

To their credit, most webmasters simply trash the old site every time they update, abandoning the layout that brought them success for the sake of getting "eyeballs with a fresh new look".

It's the major added features that are a problem for me: the jury system, the effort to put everyone together in a single forum with subforums for people who disagree, and most importantly the move to a membership site (which hasn't hit yet, because everyone who already has a donor star gets to keep it for one year.)

Oh, and no custom avatars (yet; except for early adopters who participated in the beta version and got to upload theirs) and reducing the space for signatures by one third, which - did people request that? My old sig pic (which I've reposted below) is awful large, but that's because I did it back when I didn't have any graphics capability... but the new signature line gives you 100 pixels max for both image and text, with both falling off the bottom of the screen.

Also, the re-ordering of the forums on the new site means, given the huge size of DU, people have been thrown together in huge numbers and you lose the sense of continuity you had on different sub-forums where there were long-time regulars.

That's something that you don't know how it'll shake out; Video linking on the main forum (a plus in my book) means the Video forum will have fewer replies than usual (it was always tricky to navigate over to videos since they were only really visible on the main page, and only got lots of responses if they were featured on the main page.)

15. Now keep in mind, if I were the site owner I think they should keep a section of DU2 open
In the depths of the archives, as a sort of relief valve for us Occupiers who prefer the look and feel of the old site.

Like Zion in the Matrix.

Hmm, that gives me an idea...

10. The link directly into DU2
is www.democraticunderground.com/discuss

The DU3 is from the home page, and isn't in a specific directory of its own.

We like here, too. I'm posting at the other place, but this place is far easier to get around, and there doesn't seem to be an easy way of getting around there. I've been posting in GD there, but it's hard to find some of the other forums.

I can only hope we can keep this place as a sort of underground underground.

13. Hehe, we could rename this General Discussion: Underground Edition, or General Discussion: Occupied
And when mods send something to the DU2 Dungeon, we can call it the Deepest Dungeon. :evilgrin:

But the DUers delved too greedily and too deep.

Down, far down below the deepest mutterings of the trolls, the 'Net is gnawed by nameless things.

Who knows what these bloggers stumbled upon, down there among the Cyclopean ruins of ancient DU2?

Even Skinner knows them not. They are older than he;

and in what strange eons might the slumbering Grovelbot awake once more?

19. Another possible way to get here is to put
your user name into Google. Some posts you made here should come up and you can click on them and get back into DU2.
