Hi Chad. I made that suggestion some time ago, but it seems that they completely ignore anything I type. This place is dead with a capital D. Given that they eliminated a significant number of previous posters on the old forum you would think that the powers that be, those that made or supported such a decision, would make a concerted effort to initiate conversations. But alas we have near silence. I have left this forum tab open on my PC and check once in a while for any activity. That will cease soon as we migrate to other forms of communication. Which will happen soon enough given the current trend.
Now that we have a new membership committee with a few volunteers. It would be helpful for this team to capture all ideas that members want as features, and we will put priorities on those items. Their role is to improve the membership experience. Capturing all ideas and putting priorities will help members see the action plan.
Currently Shannon is focused on some regional needs for operations. He is about half way done. Should be finished in the next two weeks. After that he will be back on members list.
So, if we can get members to add all their wants in this thread then the membership committee can give Shannon the list.
Thank you everyone for your suggestions and patience.
The response times on the new site are quite slow. Is there anything that can be done to speed it up?
Also, while I certainly agree that the enthusiasts that were on the old site should have joined the club but banning them from posting has really impacted forum discussions. There are way fewer posts than before. At this rate the forums won’t last long as people move to the Alley or some other site.
Website suggestion: At the top of the thread, each page, can we include the thread topic / title? I see that the thread title is at the bottom of the page in the “Reply” section. And that’s good to have as well. But I found myself reading through comments and forgetting what the thread was about.
Organization of some states within regions looks like it needs some updating. Members in Delaware, for example, may miss out on information or opportunities because they’re not listed / categorized in the appropriate region.
