Forums Arrive!

Saturday December 1st, 2001

We've been working hard to get the Talkback Forums up and running, and we've gotten them to a point where we want to show them to you. We're still working on a variety of issues like a flat mode and user authentication, so expect to see those hopefully soon. If you can think of another forum that you'd like to see created, let us know. Also, feel free to comment on what else you'd like to see in the forums, and on the site.

Poor old Asa, he's having to tell people not to post off-topic stuff in the Build Bar forum all the time :-) The reason why ? Well, the "main" link on the home page of Mozillazine for forums for the casual reader is actually the "TALKBACK" link on the Build Bar (the more general Forums link is 'buried' on the right-hand panel amongst a bunch of other links).

So people click "TALKBACK" thinking it's a general talkback forum and post their stuff, only to be told off by Asa :-) Yes, I know the forum topics page does now tell you the forum name, but it's easily overlooked - it should be in a larger, bold font and the forum name should be in the document title (instead of the generic "MozillaZien Talkback Forums" title) as well as the reverse video link that currently says "Topics" (should say "Topics in XXXX Forum" surely ?). In other words, make it *very* obvious which forum you're in, rather than only barely obvious like it is now.

Solutuon: Change "TALKBACK" link on the Build Bar to "BUILD BAR TALKBACK FORUM" or something nice and clear like this. variou
