Hi All,

I just organized our forum sections into categories.  Do you like this layout, or would you prefer how it was?

Please vote in the poll!

Need an "indifferent" option, was okay with it before, still am.  Thanks for the links section.

Yeah, I'm not sure I like it.  I like the condensed organization, but it is another click to navigate to where I want to go.  I may remove the categories.  Any other thoughts?

I didn't even notice the collapse feature until you mentioned it. By default mine opened with all categories expanded. If we had a lot more forum topics, the collapse feature might have value. For example if there were 10 topics related to solar water heating, I would collapse that since I'm not currently interested. Since we don't currently have too many topics, I'm with Dan and think either format is fine.

The Links and Quick Tips topics are good additions.

As a side note, this morning when I entered the forum the stats at the bottom showed 127 guests and 4 members online.  There seems to be a lot of lurkers that either are not interested in posting or haven't figured out how.

What? they collapse?  Ditto Kevin's comments.  I like lurkers, hopefully they soon will feel they have something to contribute and join in.  Even more important, that they come back often and don't just disappear.

Ah, okay, it looks like if I leave categories open, they remain open for the next visit.  I guess they are open to new users by default?  I'm feeling better about them now, especially as we inevitably come up with additional topics.

Yes, there are always a lot of lurkers, which is a good thing.  We actually hit a record earlier today for the largest number on line here at any one time.  Hopefully they are learning about solar, getting interested, will build some projects and start chiming in!

Now it is showing 0 guests.  Maybe a lot of the "guests" are really internet search robots that come in at certain times of the day or other robots that try to break into web sites.
