New features

    When a new features appear on our hubs can we have a forum post at the top in the blue section at the same time as the new feature is set up?

    That way the info. would not get lost on the forums and would save some of the  multiple forum enquiry posts about it.

    I know you will still get folk who do not read the official release info. but it would reduce the deluge of like queries that we are getting over the mystery 'A's.

    This latest release (A) proves that not everyone looks for an answers for themselves before asking for help. which leads me to conclude that the Learning Centre and FAQ (help button) also needs to be more obvious for the new Hubbers here.

      I agree, any changes need to be announced, no matter how small. One of the big problems post-Panda was that rules that were tweaked or tightened (not changed), weren't announced at all, and that caught many people by surprise. 

      If the team feels that would clutter up the forums too much, maybe there could be some kind of "latest updates" banner at the top of the page?

        That would work well if it was on the stats. page - maybe at the top in big letters smile

        Uninvited writer I agree that for some even a flashing neon sign would not work.

    I too agree that not everyone will read a banner message or notice but it's worth a try to make an announcement to preclude the deluge of similar questions on the forums.

    And I was guilty of this regarding the green follow button.

    I immediately caught the "ghostly a" for a missing summary but either misread, misunderstood or overlooked anything about the number of our followers. I actually thought at the time they were talking about the follow button for each hub.

    Danette when I first joined HubPages it took me weeks to discover that the  help button at the top was really FAQ - I thought it was for reporting problems lol smile
