Forum HIGHLIGHT Important Topics

So far, we have 1,164 topics in this forum.

most of us will only read the latest discussion in this forum, without knowing there are many important topics that are really useful for every designers to find out

many designers create new topics just to find out whether they can get information about a case, without the hassle of searching on Google with certain keywords (for example → logoground: quality)

also, some important discussions are topics that are not relevant to the title.

so, is it possible for LG to Highlight at least 5 of the most important topics in the forum, it could be based on popularity or staff choice.
in case to get more attention from any designers in this community

Regards,
Furqontino

Agreed! The designer's payment and the copied logos threads for example, are very important to be always on top.

I think the forum can use a huge update.
But I guess this is already on the magic-to-do-list.
I suggest that the forum has multiple chapters with relevant topics for each chapter.
Many topic have the same question (rejections, suggestions, etc), it makes the page unnecessary looooong.
We discussed it before, but it would be nice if, when you are entering the forum, you can easily open the chapter you like. Then you don't have to scroll through all the topics you don't want to see (and yes that has also a negative effect, many topics are maybe unseen).

Hello,

I definitely agree with the proposed idea of having some sort of highlight for important topics here in the LogoGround forum, as well as the previously-discussed idea of having categories.

Many forums have special topics that are highlighted in a particular way: they are set to always stay on the top and they are called sticky topics or pinned topics. For example, in many forums, the rules topic is usually one of these sticky/pinned topics that always stay on the top of the list. This works well with forums where the main page is organized with very thin lines (that is, each topic on the list has a very small footprint). In the current LogoGround forum layout, this might not work well as all new topics will be below the fold if five or more topics are highlighted in this manner; so the layout would have to be updated in that case.

By the way, there are many new users that create a new topic when they have a common question instead of reading the FAQ, the designer's handbook or other readily available pages. To reduce the number of unnecessary posts, I believe it is important to guide these new users with a prominent note on the New Forum Topic page: https://www.logoground.com/forumnew.php

I know that on that page there are already links to the forum rules, the FAQ and the designer handbook, but clearly those links are being ignored by some new users. A more prominent note should be added; one that actually indicates that users should be aware of all rules, guidelines, terms and best practices with the very specific purpose of avoiding unnecessary new posts.

Additionally, to avoid vague or irrelevant titles, there should be a note about this on the aforementioned New Forum Topic page. As an example, here's what BoingBoing shows on their forum in their New Topic page, among other things: "Does the title sound interesting if you read it out loud? Is it a good summary?". The BoingBoing forum also tries to avoid unnecessary topics by adding this as well: "Who would be interested in this? Why does it matter? What kind of responses do you want?". These are all rhetorical questions of course, but they push the user to ponder on the relevance and importance of the new topic they are about to create on the forum.

One last thing, until a search feature is implemented in the LogoGround forum, on the aforementioned New Forum Topic page, maybe users should be instructed to use Google to search the forum before adding a new topic which might have been discussed before and thus, preventing unnecessary duplicate topics of common questions. Maybe a link could be added to point users to the topic that explains how to use Google to search the LogoGround forum, which I created in October 2018: https://www.logoground.com/discuss.php?topic=664

Just some ideas,

Ortega Graphics

Looking forward for the update. and I wonder if it is a good idea to have a private topic just for designer to discuss on copyright issues especially when it involve giving links to the page/website that infringe so that they don't stumble to a page that is discussing about them?
