A suggestion for 1.1

A suggestion for 1.1 Can't Post

OK, I love this new board. I’ll just say it. Yesterday was the first time I laid eyes on it.

But here is one design feature change I would recommend if you ever get around to it. (this is probably moot, I know, because of all the time you folks just spent on getting the present design up and OUT.)

But I've designed Web sites as if that means anything, but I’ve always thought that one of the primary objectives in designing a page is that the main activity users are there to do must be EASY and INTUITIVE. (Of course there's always "Find Waldo".) But the question is “what action do most people do during a TORN session and where is a logical place they would look to do it?”

As for the activity (I believe): GETTING BACK TO THE MAIN LIST OF POSTS – the “starting point” for doing most things. You have to get there at some point no matter what else you do: check new posts, post a message, answer a post, write a PM, anything.

And for "how to get there" I found – as a newbie on this board – that I was always attracted to those rings at the top to get me where I wanted to go! Then I finally learned to look for a little green button lurking somewhere near the bottom.

So I vote that when you are ready for 1.1 you consider slightly changing what's on the ring menus. First definitely should be Back_to_Board or some such, then Post_a_Message and up there also should be somewhere FAQs and if you still have room, Send_Mail. You decide the rest!

But gee, I love this new board!!



For I also am a steward. Did you not know?
