Please give your opinion on our new forum design...
Jaap de Jonge, Editor, Netherlands
Hi, we recently improved our management forums:
1. A new 'horizontal design' instead of columns. Looks better and improves the readability.
2. Small pictures of the authors are added so you can see who contributed that topic or reaction. It also rewards the authors for their contribution to our knowledge network...
3. When you click a forum topic, it opens in a new window (page) with a big font, showing all the reactions and the reaction box. Again: improving the readability.
4. All topics are now easier to find when you enter a search.
5. Comments and reactions can be sorted by rating. This will show the best ideas at the top.
