Title: Changes to the forum layout
Post by: Admin on February 24, 2021, 06:34:50 pm
After studying the Admin tools, I've started to make changes in the forum layout, as suggested and requested by members recently.

Initially, what I've done is to collapse the topics in two non-musical board categories to minimize the content of the home screen. All the topics are still there, and still accessible and open to new posts. They're just not cluttering up the home screen.

I also deleted one topic -- World-wide wireless broadcasts. All I found here were dead links to unidentified performances gleaned from broadcasts, all having been posted by one individual several years ago.

My first priority is to make the forum home page less cluttered and confusing, which as I recall was the initial impetus for changes. I'll continue looking at possible modifications and reviewing member suggestions for structure, topics, etc. I'm also going to see about archiving some topics that are very far removed from music (e.g., Politics) and which are better addressed on other forums, should members feel the need.

So, this will be an evolutionary process rather than an abrupt revision. Let me know your thoughts.

Okay, I've found and fixed the setting that was not allowing anyone to respond to my previous post. I've received several comments regarding the changes, so if anyone has further thoughts please feel free to share them here now. We need to make this forum optimally useful for all of us!

I have migrated the relevant posts originally in "Discussion of obscure composers" into "Individual composers" so that they are all now together rather than being split across different boards.

A composer is only "obscure" until he or she is more widely discussed.
