In my humble opinion, there are already too many threads on the forum. Maybe it is time to implement more complicated structure – create subforums. E.g. separate threads about GUI, databases, network, etc. in Desktop forum. What do you think?
Maybe not subforums, but remove Desktop and create more specialized categories (database, graphics, network, etc.) and one for common questions (named something like “Common questions”, eh? :) ).
But with such thing we will have more mis-categories (we have not a lot for now, but there were some number of them a bit ago).
Yes, but that search the whole DevNet, not only the forum. If I want to do a search only in the forum, I must go to the advanced search. That wording, BTW, only does make sense if you have a simple search :-)
I often remember that there was a forum discussion and I know what I would type in that search box to find it…
But there are some improvements in the pipeline, maybe this one too. Let’s wait for Santa :)
Too much I have to choose and click on – we are lazy, aren’t we? :-)
We have a simple search in the wiki to seach the wiki only.
To be orthogonal it would be good to have a simple search in the forum to search the forum only. At best in the sidebar on the right. Make similar functions look and feel similar.
