    One thing that happened to me that bugged me was that I had posted a website for review. Someone mentioned to me to open my links in a new window.
    I didn't know how so I asked. All of a sudden the forum turned into to a forum on how to open links in new windows.

    It upset me b/c people stopped reviewing my site

    Here's the thread: http://www.sitepointforums.com/showt...578#post183578

    Anyways, maybe you could prevent that somehow.
    Thanks!

    Make it to the point:

    1. Lets keep this site in English language.
    why: For those non-English back ground could get the online translation at world.altavista.com (Babel Fish)
    benefits: Not only improve their English but also to keep this site as a whole instead of group(as in language).

    2. Some times it is true that this site is loading a bit slow.
    why: Still don't know. Perhaps my 56k modem need a bit of upgrade

    3. The Site navigation is good but not very good.
    why: Some times got lost.
    Reason: May be I'm confused

    Over all this is the most awesome forum/bbs I know at this moment.

    Cheers.

    While it is nice of you to consider the language skills of those who already speak several languages - I think the reverse argument (that multi-lingual forums could stop English-only speakers being so damn lazy...er sorry, I mean give them a chance to practice other languages) is just as valid.

    Something I think would be great to see although not completely related to the Forums is maybe a chat area. There could be rooms on specific things like web design, scripting, hosting, graphics, etc.

    I think it would work great because people could get much faster answers to their questions.

    Just an opinion :-)

    I got my second medallion yesterday---woohoo!---but I still have not mastered the funky vbCode. Perhaps using straight HTML as an option would be good, but then again, maybe it is an option.

    Also what Marina said about having a section about just new posts would help us.

    Maybe lowering the level where you can change your title to 100.

    Oh, and that Sketch guy needs to be a Mentor...that would make SP Purrfect!

    id get rid of the subforums. they really arent needed. if the topic is good, it will stay at the top of the list. there's no need to keep making users click and click and click.

    secondly, activate html in signatures. edevboards.com is an excellent site. although they have just 500 users, they're on their way up to your level. check them out. everythign there is excellent.

    dont make everythign so messy! the problems with sites with lots of pages is that they get extremely messy. dont let this be you!

    Reduce the number of forums - the fewer the better. Only expand to multiple forums if they get too busy to handel and people begin to complain.

    If HTML is allowed in signatures I'd like to give people the option of turning it off. I've seen too many sites that allowed HTML and people start to have animated GIFs after each post - yuck!

    FAQ

    One of the forums I visit, MacroMedia maybe, has a post about FAQ sections. The moderators have taken threads and editied them into a FAQ with links by subject.

    The neat part of the system is that this posting always shows as the most recent posting and therefore remains at the top (I guess the bottom here) so it is always visiable.

    I presently have to maintain an off line list of FAQ locations for the forums I visit. It was nice to find a site with a FAQ floating in each forum. Also, I find that in many cases I have to ask participants where the FAQ for the forum is kept and wait until someone answers me so I can review it.

    I found SitePoint when I was reviewing Snitz. This is a forum I was sent to. I found it so useful that I continue to use it and send other tech's here. Keep up the Great work and Thanks for a great site.

    I would generally recommend archiving common questions into a 'Read-Only' forum.

    Perhaps if the Babelfish was to be integrated into the forums, it could be done in such a way that the users IP was checked to see if they were from a foreign country, then offers the buttons to allow for translations, if not, then it doesn't display the buttons.

    This would prevent clutter on the forums and also prevent unnecessary increased download times/bandwidth usage.

    Regarding the issue of how to make sitepoint a better place for webmasters i seek to offer the following observations.

    1.As pointed out earlier there should be proper coordination between the tutorial section and the forum. And there should be facilities to check quickly and easily some of the reference materials.

    2.The original idea is to have a web mastery resource in english language so let it be in english language. I am very sure there are other web mastery resources in spanish, french and probably in German language.

    3.In short this idea of making sitepoint a place for french, german, spanish and chinese postings will make it clumsy and people will never find their bearing.

    4.Finally, its better to write in french if one wants to write french and in english if that is the rule of the game. Because if a visitor comes to sitepoint from Israel, Japan, Lithuania or Mexico. He will not expect a web site in lithuanian or spanish but in english language.

    Howdy!

    There isn't much I would complain about regarding SitePoint. I think that you folks definitely need to keep up the good work of keeping spam and junk out. Haven't seen too much and hope not to either.

    Other than staying on that level....

    Keep up the good work!

    my $.02

    i didn't take the time to go through any of the previous posts, but... how about...

    if i could make a list of topics or keywords that i generally look for and have your server point out those posts/topics first..?

    HELL! i would love to be able to code that...

    but i'm only a baby coder.
    in real life, sark would have triumphed

    Internationally, this is one of the most interesting webmaster discussion forums.

    One will find at sitepoint hints, ideas and things you will not find elsewhere.

I really think the people assembled here are great, and you'd be hard pushed to improve it in that way.

    Maybe one way you could improve usability is not to have this kind of forum under the subforums, as it doesn't really have a category, it's kinda the general forum, under the subject 'web design'. I think other people might benifit (especially newer members) if rather than having this forum under the other three, having a forth forum on the list 'general design discussion'... obviously you can think of a snappier title, but that's my input

    Also a tutorials forum would be neat, where people could write up long tutorials on given subjects, you could make it read only, or moderate it so that only corrections are given rather than general discussion. I'm sure that would be a very useful addition to the comunity.

    I'm done now
    I just have this to say about this forum

    you people are awesome..1 thing I might say is try and find other ways from people to contact you other than email use ICQ and AIM, I know some people would agree that its important to keep contact On and Off the forum..but anywayz that just my 2 cents

    SitePoint has a great forums system i just think that maybe a few more general rooms that have a broad topic like HTML or something could be useful to some people

    Improving forums ?

    I thinks the forums are great but I would like to be able to find out where users live. It would be good to be able to find out who lives in my area, which is Brighton (UK)and members close like Worthing, Lancing, Hove, Burgess hill, Lewes etc. At present, looking up members in the members list does not have a built in filter for this. It would be great to be able to speak to like minded members and maybe collaborate / swap skills etc.

    Maybe I'm wrong! Is is possible to find all the members in my local area?

    Apart from this gripe, I think the Forums are fantastic, as I do Sitepoint in general.

    A personal touch to the community.
    Communicating with users in your area (or other ares you choose) will build bonds among members too. That would be nice

    WEll hey it's great to see lynlimz on the forums

    Yeah, that locate members in your area idea is cool! It would require more tweeking of the database probably unless you just went with some sort of regex matching. But that is a cool idea.
