How well do you know the forums?

Recommended Posts

Hello! So, after I returned from about a two month long leave from Forums, I noticed the layout changed a bit in that time. Additionally, I noticed that some of the previous features of the Forums, like signatures, stopped working. These forums are, or at least were, quite customizable - even if some of the functions are no longer seem functional. Yet, I believe there is a lot of untapped potential in these features, simply because the Forum members never discover them. For that reason, I made a tutorial on forums in the past.

With this in mind, I have a request for you. I prepared several questions. Please answer them. The purpose is to get a better idea of how well the forum members know the forum functions, and whether they use them or not.

1. Do you know you have your own profile page, as a part of your account? 


2. Do you know you can subscribe to other forum members at their profile pages & be notified if they post?


3. Did you use signatures? Would you like to, if they worked?


4. Did you know you can follow specific content (forum topic) - and be notified if someone posts in there? Do you use it?


5. Are you familiar with Activity streams function? Do you use it? 


6. Do you write public messages on your own feed? 

If you did not know about some of these functions and now you do, and if you find them useful, will you start using them?
I would have made this an actual poll, but the Poll options are limited. Having answers in a post would prove more useful. You can also write an explanation behind your choice that way as well, which is invaluable feedback.

I think these questions could probably helpful to Hinterland, let them know which forum functions are worth keeping.  Based on these questions, I may create another, new, updated version o the comprehensive guide to Forums that I posted a link to earlier.-

1. Do you know you have your own profile page, as a part of your account? Yes.


2. Do you know you can subscribe to other forum members at their profile pages & be notified if they post? Yes but I don't use it. I just click on the unread content link when i come here and check out all the topics of interest to me.


3. Did you use signatures? Would you like to, if they worked? I did have one before it went away. Not a big deal to me whether it comes back or not.


4. Did you know you can follow specific content (forum topic) - and be notified if someone posts in there? Do you use it? Yes but I don't use it.


5. Are you familiar with Activity streams function? Do you use it? Yes. No.


6. Do you write public messages on your own feed? No. I see no use or need for it.
