Restructuring Project Overview

Over two years ago at a meeting in Louisville, the then moderator team brainstormed a few good ways to improve the Bring4th experience. Upon the shelf those ideas were put, and there they collected dust.

This summer, the project was resurrected. We started by submitting a questionnaire to the community seeking feedback about the experience and operation of Bring4th.

Springboarding from two months’ worth of replies to the questionnaire, the current website owner/moderator team met again in Louisville while Bring4th_Plenum was in town to layout the blueprint for the Bring4th Restructuring Project.

Over the course of the next two months, the team worked tirelessly, day and night, going often without food or bathroom breaks, surviving only on Saltines and drips of water through a crack in the ceiling, to develop and implement that blueprint. The forum relaunch represents both a great deal of work and the best of our efforts.

During the almost eight year’s of Bring4th’s history, many evolutionary adjustments have been made to the forums, one at a time. The Restructuring Project is the first to implement whole scale changes in one turn.

We hope that the changes made will help to improve and strengthen your experience of L/L Research’s online community, and clarify the purpose and mission of the community.

  1. Revise the Bring4th Guidelines

The reorganization looks good. It seems more logical, focused, and less messy.

Jade is a great addition to the team. Smile

Good job.
A+ Stellar work, guys.

Nice work, but sometimes my posts take over a minute to post new ones.

Mod edit: discussion about slowness of the server that evolved from this post was split to this thread.
