SailNet is filled with valuable content that should be easier accessible.
Rather than worry about cosmetic changes, I think easier accessibility to past content should be a priority.

I'm not a programmer, so I don't really know how feasible it would be to set up a more easily searchable data base, or at least make the current search function more efficient. Or perhaps a FAQ. Even a way to make people more aware of the Articles section would be an improvement.

Re: Sailnet Changes Poll 1

I suppose this could also be one of those questions that is conflicted. Readers could completely misunderstand what reduce or eliminate sub-forums even means. If one took that to ask whether we should have zero sub-forums, with everyone posting to one single forum, it would naturally get push back. There is a big difference between reducing forums and eliminating them. Those in favor of a reduction could vote no, to avoid a complete elimination.

Re: Sailnet Changes Poll 1

John (PB) is on the money. when the most reliable way to search SailNet is to use Google then something is wrong. The search function is an utter farce.

Re: Sailnet Changes Poll 1

Sub-forums should probably be policed and pruned for usefulness as a normal maintenance function... not as a big earth-shaking change.

Re: Sailnet Changes Poll 1

Leaving the sub forums has barely won. There may be a couple (like Piracy) or other sub forums that I remove if they are not used.

Otherwise, most will stay.

Poll closed.
