The most important link on Performancing, the recent posts list, is about to get a whole bunch more important. Today we officially launch the Performancing Member Forums, where, you, and we, can ask questions, post opinions and generally chat about blog related topics. The best way to track what’s going on in those forums is of course the recent posts link, that you’ll find on the right hand menu.
Performancing Member Forums
Aswell as providing support for our Firefox extension, and other tools that you’ll hear about next year, we wanted to address the need for bloggers to have a place, a community in which to ask questions, get advice, and chat with like-minded people.
There’s a whole ton of things i wish I could just “ask” almost every day, and judging by the amount of questions that come through the feedback form alone, I think im not the only one 🙂
You’ll find posting guidelines linked from each individual forum, though they’re pretty much the same as the general site guidelines and are pretty “common sense”.
If you check the right hand menu, if you’re registered and logged in, you’ll see some new links – one to the forums, and “create content” – which is a shortcut for posting forum topics aswell as homepage stories.
We’ll want to expand the forums to cover specific subjects in time, but for now, as nobody likes a ghosttown, we’ve kept the forums very general — you’ll find forums for the general topics of:
- Member Lounge
The last one is particularly neat I think, as so long as it’s blog related, and not political/religious we can talk about pretty much anything we please in there — with a bit of luck it will provide a nice spot for getting to know eachother and talking about things not covered in the usual Performancing content.
To kick us off, take a few moments to introduce yourself here. It’s a nice chance to get to know everyone a little better.
Hope you enjoy the new forums, a little help kicking off some of those topic areas would be greatly appreciated!
