Please make community on a better engine


#1

Hello. Your current engine for community forum looks horrible. Not readable at all. I suggest to make it something like https://faceinet.files.wordpress.com/2010/01/foros-nuevos-ayudawp.png . It will be good for our eyes.

cc @alex on this. Thanks for the feedback @alex256! :slight_smile:

Hi @alex256 when I first started out in the community I was also sort of on the same wave length but I think those templates you linked for community pages are slowly becoming redundant (though not completely :slight_smile: It’s a platform created by Discourse which many companies and organisations are starting to utilize for one reason or the other. I guess it’s more simple to the eye as opposed to former forums - here’s Manjaro’s community/forum https://forum.manjaro.org/

As you can see it’s pretty much the same but I do agree with you they’ll have to do something which makes it more neat and tidy but personally I can’t make any recommendations because the the team adopting Discourse has done a pretty good job so far and the current product and features the platform it’s pertaining to I suppose forces it to look like that.

There’s a small inference also made here regarding the forum, just though you may want to take a look. Streamline feedback please

Numpty, thanks for your links and explaination. Still I find it hard to read this engine. Really not a good solution. If not some old forum engine they could at least find something readable. Or even create simple engine from scratch.

https://bbs.archlinux.org/ is a good example of modern yet readable community forum.

I highly doubt they’ll design something from scratch, it’s the reason why there are independent solution provided by such companies as Discord. This solution for the team I suppose give more flexibility in that allows the team to organize, communicate, invite more effectively than other standard solutions.

The only things that concerns me is security which I heard Discord is sort of known for having issue around. That being said when the member replies, ask them/him whether there are other formats/templates to choose from. I’m assuming of course Discord provides other options considering the expense of such a platform is quite a penny and for such a premium solution they (Discord team) must have made efforts towards different UI/UX of their own.

Just throwing my 2 cents in. This link https://faceinet.files.wordpress.com/2010/01/foros-nuevos-ayudawp.png . Looks like something from 2000 - worst look and design page. Super Early internet looking.

Current community site is pretty effective imho!

Hello guys. Long time no see. I’ve been “computerless” at home, waiting for my new CPU and RAM to arrive from AliExpress. Sold my old system before ordering new one.

That’s the good thing. New doesn’t mean good. Most times what is new is made worse and with less quality.

That’s how bitcointalk.org looks like. A really old and boxy design.

I allow myself to be the party killer here - the current looks fantastic.
Maybe a option to choose font? A better idea in my opinion. Not all of us have bad eye sight.
