Two weeks ago we introduced our new discussion forums section — a message board where the conversation isn’t limited to the articles we publish.
Now that you’d had some time to check it out, we wanted to know if there’s any way we can make it better. Namely, we’re wondering if the forums would be more useful if we did away with the eight discussion groups — News, Reviews, Sightings/Overhead, etc. — and instead put all discussion topics right on the forums home page. That way, users could easily see what people are talking about now, rather than having to wade into each individual discussion group.
Please feel free to share other suggestions in the comments.
Yesterday we officially launched our new discussion forums section — a message board where the conversation isn’t limited to the articles we publish.
