I’d like to make some suggestions for the forum, specifically around user onboarding. When I first joined the forum, I originally intended to create a suggestion for H2018 in #hitman-wishlist based on guidance from the official HITMAN discord server, however I never got round to it and decided to start looking around the forum itself.
When I first received a message from discobot, there was very little content that explained what to do, where to go, etc. So like any curious new member would do, I went to go and find a place to introduce myself. My intuition pointed me towards #general-discussion, as it seemed like the most fitting place to post my thread. Seemingly I had skipped over the introductions megathread as it was so far down the list in the default sorting method (latest first). I was later informed of this and felt kinda stupid for missing it (not realising at the time that it was barely visible). This to me seems like the first message you get should be a little more informative with some extra resources available.
Secondly, I believe the default homepage mode should be set to categories instead of latest. This is due to the fact that more organisation often makes a forum look cleaner to new users, with posts that have completely different uses being merged into one feed being pushed into new users’ faces by default not seeming favourable (in my opinion).
If anyone has any critique or comments regarding any of the points I’ve made, go for it.
Pointy yes i know it says dont sign your messages but i aint writing feedback like this and not signing it
