Changes to UKMIX

 

Postby Wayne » Fri Nov 10, 2017 9:51 pm

Over the last couple of weeks, the moderation team has been working hard, debating back and forth, some changes to UKMIX - all in response to the UKMIX feedback survey you completed last year.

The first thing you'll probably notice is that the forums have been revamped and we've introduced a couple of new forums, based on your feedback! Each new forum will have a set of guidelines where appropriate (some are self explanatory and won't require guidelines) - we suggest you give them a quick read, but we really hope they add value to your UKMIX experience! Over the next few weeks, the moderation team will spend time moving the relevant topics into the new forums, but please bear with us.

There will be no changes to forum design at this point but we will be introducing some little extras over the weekend that you haven't had before - these include spoiler tags, coding that allows you to align posts, Tweet embedding and a quick reply function (I will let you know when these have been turned on).

Over the next few weeks, we also hope to revamp the smileys package and introduce both a post "like" feature and the ability to tag other users - these last few extras will take a bit longer as they require a bit more work but they will come eventually.

Any feedback, please post in this topic - otherwise, thank you for your continued contributions to our community and we hope the above enriches your UKMIX experience!

Good job guys!
I just noticed the order/sequence of the main page is changed.

And surely thank you all for the priceless efforts!

Looking forward to the rollout of the "extras" this weekend, particularly the tagging, embedding and alignment of posts.

One question, you mention tweet embed, does this extend to instagram/facebook as well or is that coming in the future?

I love the "Quick Reply" function! - That's really useful! - Thanks!

I was in shock though when I saw the new order and the titles of the subforums; right now, I am totally confused but I think I will adjust to it soon :D

Thank you for improving the forums :)

the only thing I really don't want to change is the design, but seems like that's not your plan :)

I was also slightly confused when I suddenly saw the changes, but they seem cool and I think we will all get used to them soon. Thanks to the mod/admin team. :)

I was so confused, and have no idea where anything is. I thought it was an early April Fools... :lol: But great work on the changes!

Can I just make a suggestion to rename the "Music" section to "Mad About Music" to keep some of the nostalgia?? Plus, plain "Music" doesn't suit the subforums in that section imo!
