TSIA.  Is this seriously happening?  I just tried to post a question in the CF forum, and the form wouldn't submit UNLESS AND UNTIL I SELECTED A TOPIC!  Malicious compliance: ALL SELECTED.  Doing the same for this complaint post.

 

This is what is commonly known as REMOVED design.  I am seriously fed up with the new community portal.  I ACTUALLY PINE FOR THE DAYS OF JIVE!!!!

I suspect that requirement was added because almost no one has been using the tags. Since we don't have child forums anymore for things like Scripting, we depend on those tags to filter information.

 

Also, this thread may be more suited to the Community Feedback forum. Let me move it there for you.

It's still @55hole design, especially when/if none of the available topics apply to the subject matter.  (If anyone edits my @55hole into REMOVED, you should go work for SitePoint and leave this to professionals.)

Hi limsims

No Bug NB__Colour.

Same goes for editing a post. to actually make a post there has to be a Tag applied.

 

The REAL Problem is Not all tags, Topic choices, are displayed. So depending on what the post s really about sometimes the tag/topic choices don't match.

you're putting a LOT of time into the forum "fixes needed"

 

I agree about the topics, if they are to be required then they MUST all be displayed as options, the fact that they are not - that IS a bug in my mind.

 

Anyhow, I still think this converation should be in back room. it MIGHT get spotted and acted on there? 

 

 

thanks

I Completely DISAGREE.

The Feedback forum is Exactly where this topic should be. It is Feedback On the Forums.

If this was a properly run forum system this section (Forum) should be the First place a Staff member comes to read feedback from not only ACPs and MVPs but from the General Adobe Using Public.

If moved to the Back Room then the OP would be Locked out.

If the Feedback forum was restricted like the BR, ACP/MVP, Mod forum then no general public users could post to it.

To me, it seemed that the OP was providing feedback about one of the ways communities are working, so this should be the best place for it.  Adobe personnel are monitoring this forum for feedback, enhancement requests, and bugs provided by the community at large.

 

Community descriptions on the front page, at least for communities that are not directly related to products, would be a good idea. I'd like to know which communities are open to all and which have limited access. I thought, for example, that the Back Room had limited access in the old Jive forums and that had carried over to here. If that's the case, the OP wouldn't be able to access their own post if I had moved it there.

And sometimes, there doesn't seem to be an appropriate tag. The limited options means that it can be hard to decide which tag to use. Community Feedback has only 3 choices: Bug, Enhancement, and Release Notes. While I admit I'm not sure what other topics should be included, I'm also not sure that these are the only topics people would want to use.

 

As an aside, why is it Enhancement in this community and Feature request in Community Help? Surely those are the same thing? And why would they be in two different communities if they both apply to asking for an improvement to the Communities?
