Forum Updates February 2018

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

Over the next week we'll be making some changes to the forum. These changes will hopefully encourage more people to use forum by making it easier to navigate and more mobile-friendly.

 

These changes will include a software update, a new skin and some consolidation of boards, so if you notice any major changes it's nothing to worry about!

 

Thanks,

 

Matt

I'm currently in the process of consolidating several of our boards to make room for a few new ones and make it easier for people to find and participate in active threads. Most posts should have been moved to another board, but if you spot any that have gone missing, please let me know.

Any chance I could have a new body ?

A new right elbow would be especially nice :D

Hope thats not it!! Change looks not great when crafty bit is merged in nesting box, Actually will make me go on less on here. The old one worked - why change it? Most forums are using facebook these days. Along with the photo posting which is awful now it woukd be easier on fb!

I hardly ever click on any topics in the forum board index but juust go to unread topics to see what’s new. As long as that stays, I’m a happy camper.

There is a crafting section, but it’s locked for now. I think Matt is just still transferring stuff, so just have a bit of patience. :D

That's what I do, too, unless I want to start a new topic.

I've always looked at my posts first and then scan down the other lists to see if the dates have changed and read the most recent posts.

 

How do I look at the unread posts like you do ? :oops:

If you are on the board index, just above the first topic it will say “view unread posts”. I click on that. :wink:

It's going to be a real poopy for me to catch up with posts I've contributed to - I never get notifications any more so you could all wonder why I'm snubbing you - I'm not!

You can click on “view unread posts” or “view your posts”.

I hardly ever use the board index.

General thoughts on the new layout seem to be somewhat negative (mine too!) so I wonder why the sudden need to overhaul and change was flagged up :think: Possibly a bit of consultation with regular users would have been helpful and highlighted whether there was actually any need for change. It seems quiet on here recently, as others have pointed out, and I don't think that the new format will encourage people back! Sorry Omlet but there it is!

As a relative newbie to the forum, the change doesn't bother me personally, but I do understand why it's upset the regulars. Hopefully, Matt will read your comments and accommodate you all.

Have just realised that the other window in the Forum that I use quite a bit - All Things Nice - has gone! This is taking some getting used to o.O
