Speaking of content, are the changes to be limited to the superficial (colours, logo, etc) or are there plans for SF to modify its content? Is SF to remain a traditional message board, complete with its sections devoted to general, non-Sheffield related content (politics, entertainment, and so on)? 

 

Now that SF has a brand, what are your plans for it?  How will it change in future months from the Sheffield Forum we have now?

The forum can be used to discuss whatever topics users want to discuss, so no change planned there. We are trying to attract more users to contribute and we will be creating some of our own content which we hope will be interesting and informative, this content will be Sheffield focused.

 

If you have any suggestions for changes or improvements, they would be greatly received.

Thank you for your reply.

 

Is that a confirmation that Sheffield Forum will retain its current traditional message board format in the long term, and that the current subsections of that message board will also be retained?

What sort of 'content'?

A regular feature on local small businesses would be good.  I'm particularly interested in local craftspeople and artists.

 

It will be interesting to see how your plan for SF emerges.

Correct no changes planned.

News, current events, promoting all things Sheffield.

We would be delighted to do this, if you, or anyone, has any suggestions on any businesses we will contact them.

I like it, this forum needed a refresh for a long time. I echo questions about whether you are intending to make further changes to the set-up, the place can do with a refresh, maybe run a beta with proposed category alterations? 

Also, noticed the Calendar and, without testing it, believe users can add events themselves, if that is the case, huge thumbs-up and looking forward to use this with my new social enterprise to announce training sessions on digital literacy etc. 

 

All in all, it looks like the forum is in good hands, so thumbs up from this oldtimer.

Pasted text seems to inherit the HTML code from the site it was pasted from, without the opportunity to amend it. I'm not entirely sure, but I believe that PhPForum allows a button to strip 'markup'? If so, it might be worth utilising that :)

Not really a critic,  just thought the logo a bit bland,  was hoping for something more dynamic 🙂
