Expect us to consolidate a lot of these this summer. No more separate forums for every student org, every class, etc. I understand why people wanted it that way, but after a year of having this site up with less adoption than we'd like it's safe to say it doesn't quite work that way. We've been talking internally about this and I think we'd like to get the number of forums on the home screen down to ten or less. This will be much more manageable for people and I hope that adoption increases as a result.
In the meantime, I think we can be a little understanding about some of the x-posting.
I think this definitely would help out a lot; if there was only one forum for ALL CLA students, then I think the whole 'crossposting drama' that seems to be here would disappear. I know if there was only one forum for ALL CLA students then I wouldn't have posted this so many times. Thanks for the information about the updates coming this summer! I appreciate it.
