I am thinking about this topic for a longer time, the forum has great features, but the design is somehow missing. I went on Polkadot forum and it looks almost the same, I would be thinking I am on Cardano forum if I didn´t see the Polkadot logo.
Probably it is some general template used for this type of forums, but as @ADA-INDO said in his recent topic we need to be seen, we need to be known in order to spread among the ordinary people.
In the present form when someone enters the forum and is not a programmer or deeply connected to the crypto world, there is not much to catch person´s eye.
I know, discussing technicalities and practical things is important, but may be it is not the only function of the forum. The real reason why communities hold together is that they feel good being there, they have joy and feel connected.
For me the forum is like a space where we meet, like our virtual house, so let´s decorate it that the people come here just because they feel good being there.
It would be nice to make room also for common people, maybe when it is possible to talk in a language that is closer to everyday understanding, so they feel eligible to participate in the topic and in return they could give us a new spark for the idea which will emanate from this simplicity.
I´ve got also some suggestions for new sections like “Off-topic” where people can discuss what they like and maybe better get to know each other.
Also Yoroi, Daedalus and Adalite would deserve separate sections, from my point of view, this is great place for developers to get feedback and announce news.
What do you think?
P.S: I am not sure how to process these changes, if it needs to go through Catalyst or can we make it as a forum community project. I am also not the programmer, but if there will be will for change and someone who can make the changes, I will gladly contribute few hundred Ada.
