Blogs (and forum layout) suggestion
  • This is more of a suggestion than anything.  When posting a new thread/topic, it automatically defaults the category to "blogs" unless one takes action to change the category to "general discussion" or the like.  Also, it defaults to "ask a question" instead of "start a new discussion".  This may have been asked/suggested before, but is there a way to re-create what the old blogs felt like?  I truly enjoyed that space for each person's own, unique journey without the muck up of regular forum/topic posts.  I love the questions and materials that are being asked as that category, but I would also like to see a more dedicated blog space return.

    Also, this goes along the line of general forum setup.  I feel like the overall "All Discussion" part might be a bit too much.  With everything running together so much, it becomes just a touch more difficult to sort stuff out.  It's not a total hassle to do some self-filtering/searching, but I thought it might make the initial viewing more pleasant.

    I know much time and energy has been spent in redoing the forum, and much more time and effort is currently being spent with the "chat".  I am deeply grateful for all the hard work that has made this forum such a grand and triumphant return.  The feel of the forum is generally sleek and very visually appealing.  I just always felt the way the blogs had their own space made them more personal and somehow more sacred.  Just my two cents.

    Blogs are at

    At some point the admins should change the forum header to put in a link.
  • Twl, I didn't even know.  Thanks.  When I saw the thread "Blogs are back!" I thought it just meant the side bar that currently exists.  I didn't even realize there was a separate aspect altogether.
