forum structure improvements?

now that the forum is getting busier and busier by the day, and potentially massive once the main site goes live, im wondering if the forum should be subcategorized more, like the Processing forum, to make things easier in the future.

What do you think to this structure?

discussion

  • announcements
  • introductions
  • opportunities

general programming

  • beginners
  • advanced
  • extend
  • bindings

specific programming

  • computer vision, movies
  • electronics, serial
  • 3d
  • sound
  • etc etc etc

compilers

  • visual studio
  • dev-c++
  • x-code
  • linux
  • code::blocks (windows)

suggestions

  • software feature requests
  • software bugs, errors
  • website feature requests, bugs

better to do this after the fact, rather than before. there’s nothing like an overabundance of categories to completely destroy forum activity.

i’d like to see a general discussion category though…

ok how about this for a structure, less specific but more organised…

It would be cool to have an Events section to talk about upcoming and past OF-related events and conferences.

Hi all

the forum categories have now been updated as above, plus an events section.

maybe i am the only one but i get a lot of duplicate messages in the RSS feed. i guess i get each message anew each day. this makes the RSS feed useless for me.
this was not the case before the update of the forum

I had this issue to on my mac and the way to get rid of it is to remove the rss feed from safari - empty your safari cache (safari->Empty Cache) restart safari then re-add the feed.

I don’t have the issue any more now.

scratch that - I am still having the rss issue. looking into it now

but in my case deleteing and subscribing it seems to have solved the problem for thunderbird on osx 10.5.

any idea why the double posts appear in the RSS feed? for me the feed is currently not really of any use until there’s a solution…
