Hi Julie - you are correct, we received a lot of suggestions related to the "forums" (groups) and we did usability testing with some of you who use this feature. We also asked some ladies who have never seen the website before to try using the groups feature. We received a lot of great feedback and frankly have some work to do in this area. Many of these are not cosmetic fixes and so I'm trying to fit them logically into work that we are doing to other parts of the website.
One of the largest issues we heard was "It's difficult to find my list of groups and see if there is new activity in them." Coming very soon, you will see a link next to your avatar photo in the upper right corner that says "My Groups" - This will link to a page that already exists but is impossible to find, which is called the
page. I've been testing this and I believe those of you active in multiple groups will find this really helpful.
We are also planning to rearrange the modules on the
page. The modules that most of you found useful (My Groups, Featured Groups, Most Popular Groups) are currently on the bottom. We're going to rearrange this page so that these are closer to the top. These are just a few examples and we're trying to figure out how much of our plan for this page we can implement quickly.
Thanks to everyone for their patience!
