Testing a new Forum Index Page, what do you think?

Recommended Posts

Cesar

Hey Keepers,

Made a change today to the landing page for the forum index, here is the short story... Noticed the latest activity page was very popular and our mobile app also uses a similar latest activity listing, so I updated the SKF page to show the latest activity over the traditional forum category listings... You can see the change here...

https://skfaquatics.com/forum

Depending on your feedback and posting increase/decrease, we will either keep it or return back to the old forum index. 

To dig a little deeper, the old page seemed a bit dated. With so many posts received on a daily basis here on SKF, it often felt like nothing was going on, when in fact, there are posts that go unseen and unanswered because they are buried and hard to find. Changing the front page to show the latest stream/activity of the forum enables us to quickly check what new posts and replies have been posted without having to dig around.

SKF is growing really fast, and I want to make sure we are providing the best experience for shrimp keepers possible while creating the greatest online shrimp keeping resource. In that spirit, we will continue to make a test new stuff, for now let's keep it simple and start with one page... Let me know what you think...

Thanks!

I was pulling my hair out wondering why it was doing that.

LOL... Hopefully, it works better than the old page, let me know what you think... 

I can spruce it up in time, figured I would keep it simple for now and test it out, get some feedback...

I enjoyed going to "unread content" so that it grouped all the posts together under one thread, rather than showing every single post that has been made.


A work around is just using the Shrimp Keepers Stream and changing the type of content it shows.

It's been about a month now with the new forum index page showing a stream rather than the traditional forum category layout...

So what do you think? Should we keep it or go back to the old style?

I have noticed an up trend in conversation and posting since moving to the new timeline version...

Looking to hear back from you, let me know your thoughts, love it? hate it? other?

Thanks!

I had my shortcut to go to where it now defaults automatically. It makes more sense for regular users to see what has happened since the last visit etc.

      Always try and look on the bright side! It does look more golden bee than red bolt but that may be because I HAD some stunning red bolts to compare it against. You may have been better off buying it at the slightly higher price as you would then have all the babies as well, assuming all went well of coarse when you transferred her on purchase. As you say, you know it is female!  Simon

      The photo don't show the true colors, its more of a orange color, and at the shop a week ago, it had berries, they wanted to charge me 10 USD, I didn't take it, and now it hasn't any eggs I got it for 6 USD.   At least I know it's a female.

      Those are stunning red wines (and photos) and as you say, not sure if it is a golden bee or a red bolt but whatever it is I am sure it will give you variety to the mix and mating will give you something you maybe don't already have which is always exciting. Simon
