Upcoming community improvements for Q3
A little late but happy to announce that we're now working on new improvements for Q3.
The theme of this quarter is our layout. Our platform provider recently rolled out a new way for us to design and improve our user experience, starting with our homepage. For this quarter, we will be focusing mainly on moving to a new layout editor, preparing us for all the changes we want to implement in Q4.
Since a lot of you asked about navigation and performance, we want to improve how the community feels on both desktop / mobile. This will also hopefully allow us to make some progress with performance on both.
Following this work, more improvements will be rolled out for everyone and include items that have been requested in the past few months.
We'd love to hear from everyone about your experience with navigation and our homepage. Please don't hesitate to share feedback below as we'll be tackling this as soon as our current layout has been merged to our new editor👇
I hope to see an option to show "new posts since last visit" because currently they're not easy to find.
From any topic/sub forum, displayed in one list, with newest first.
Atomix do it on the VirtualDJ forum here: https://www.virtualdj.com/forums/action/latestposts.html3
By "homepage" you mean the forum and not the actual NI homepage, right?0
Agree, this gets me every time I visit1
Not sure if that's possible with this forum software, but here's a wish for the future (I hope it's the right place):
When you're in a thread and someone posts something while you're (still) writing your post, a feature like what I've mocked up below would be appreciated.
If you click on "View them?", the post(s) will load immediately.
It could prevent situations like these: https://community.native-instruments.com/discussion/comment/37389#Comment_373891
Can we have an option to filter out forums we are not interested in? (eg for me there's always a lot of Traktor related posts as it seems a very active community but I have no interest in it tbh)2
Do you mean on the homepage / recent discussions?
if yes, you have a filter already you can toggle to Following which would then show the discussions from areas you follow.0
That would require me following discussions though, it’s more I just want to filter out some sub forums and keep focus on others0
do any of the planned improvements include "breadcrumb navigation at the bottom of the thread" and/or "accurate unread notifications icon"?0
It would be great to see your pending post while its being reviewed by the NI forum moderators.
I joined to write a new topic, posted it, and got a message saying it was being reviewed - and then it disappeared.
I’m not sure what the status is (or if it even exists anymore) - and I don’t want to spam… so I will wait… :-)0
