Hello all - Sylvia recently sent out a message that included a note about the two of us working together to give this community a face lift.
The bad news first: I'm new to this community. Shame on me...but Sylvia's been too nice to say no to my requests for help so far, so she's been the only resource I've needed so far! I'm also new to Ning generally, so I'll be doing some homework on getting up to speed with what can be done.
The good news: I know enough HTML, CSS, PHP, and other flavors of the alphabet soup to be able to do some pretty cool things. I am enthusiastic about helping Sylvia continue to cultivate this community, so I've given her no limits to what she can ask me to do.
The content that you create is the heart and soul of this community, so keep it up, and even consider doing more of it! With that said, any suggestions that you have to improve the other stuff - aesthetics, functions/widgets you'd like to see, how things are organized, etc. - this is your place to voice it.
Thanks, and fire away.
I understand, TC, and honestly I wish I could give you that capability because of your great answers to these topics! I've expanded how many recent forum topics are on the front page from 4 to 6, so that should help. I also go into the Forums tab and look at which Categories have recent activity. That helps.
thanks again for all the great contributions you make to this site! I, and the rest of the community, really appreciate you.
Honestly I hadn't noticed that either until this discussion. Should help us both out!
Now if only that were an option for Blogs in general. Currently it looks like you have to subscribe to each person's blogs separately.
