Avg response times (for internal teams)
Oh, I like that (response times.)
Hey all We're looking into revamping our community forums.
First of all - we originally used the http://try.nodebb.org subdomain mainly as a testing ground for the forum. Turns out we've got quite a few regulars here and I'm sure we will grow... so we are considering renaming it to for ex. http://community.nodebb.org.
Secondly, we're looking to build a custom theme for try. Maybe very similar to vanilla but with a bit of pizazz. Every idea is welcome! This is the point of this thread - please feel free to tell us your ideas
Rename is smart, especially early before back links to relevant articles here end up on other sites.
I think with the theme keeping it close to stock is important because the average customer wants to see what it can be out of the box. Custom costs $$ for most who can't come here and understand the finer details. Maybe as a custom feature for this site only add in the ability to change themes so folks can test out 3-4 versions.
Unless the custom theme becomes a new default :o.
Moving the official forums to a better-named subdomain would be cool, and if the new theme becomes the default, then I'm all for using it.
Good decision! Makes more sense, we can try NodeBB within the community and grow it from here.
You guys don't hang around do you already changed the domain
