HEY! Where did the BP-Media support forum go??
Nice work on the new BP.org templates… they’re really cool. Unfortunately, they also make it impossible to find the BP-Media support forum.
This is actually a serious problem.
BP-Media is the 4th most popular forum on BP.org, outranking HALF the forums listed on the new navigation menu. We have more users than the “Localization”, “Miscellaneous”, “Gallery”, “Requests & Feedback”, and even the “3rd Party Components & Plugins” forum. BP-Media is also the 5th most active forum on the site, with nearly 500 different threads and thousands of replies.
We understand your decision to get rid of a big list filled with hundreds of abandoned plugin forums …but please understand …by getting rid of that list and not providing an alternative way for users to navigate to BP-Media’s forum, you’re effectively killing one of the most active forums on buddypress.org.
The easiest way to fix this is to simply add BP-Media to the hard-coded navigation menu alongside the other core forums. Yes we’re a plugin. Considering the facts above, can you think of a compelling counterargument?
If people have to use Google to find BP-Media’s support forum, there’s not much point in hosting it on buddypress.org. Sites like Facebook, Google+, Atlassian, and Github have integration API’s, push updates, and a much better user experience …starting with 1/2 second page load times.
The reason we use buddypress.org is because it used to make it easy for new users to find our support forum.
