Just to let you know I've been making changes to the forums.

The idea that every single topic required its own board just read as so user unfriendly - and users responded by posting specific questions on the generic boards instead of specific ones.

Looking around, forums that have large generic categories that are busy seems to work better that having discussions split across lots of small niche topic boards.

So I've now moved all of the posts out from the niche subforums and moved them all to the generic forums.

So hopefully that means the Internet Business forums are now easier and simpler to use.

Agreed - sub forums can be very messy!

im pretty impressed with the new set up. the old platinax with those tarts all over it really did my head in. new design is very swish and intuitive. Also looking very professional. especially the way google calls it a mega site with its own sub links etc.

I'm actually planning to redo the site look again, actually - everything looks so *understated*. The small logo, the simple colours, the plain layout. None of it says "Remember me!" It just kind of says "I'm functional!".

Am working on the case.

Hi

I'm looking for where the "introductions" are so I can introduce myself and see everyone else's. Can someone point me in the right direction please?

Regards

Ellie

Am afraid there's currently no introductions section, as people were just using it to spam.
