Divide and conquer or divide and lose?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

How hard would it be to get rid of the subforums and put all threads in one place?

For me, the google groups (newsgroup) format works beautifully: i get some emails and filter them in their separate folder, no further subdivision needed.

On this forum, you get greeted by 5(?) sections and 18(?) subforums, each dividing the visitors into fractions of one or two.

I do want to learn what is going on with the UM community, but trawling all these forums is a non-starter for me.

Thus far, the googlegroups-like bahaviour that was promised at launch, has not appeared and I think this division of focus plays a big part in the failing of these new forums.

(having an option to share with facebook but not with G+ is another, but minor factor)

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
