We are on the path to making significant changes to the website. The template, the software, the forum format, forum content, banner/display/text advertising, paid subscriptions, moderation ... all the options are on the table.

We feel we can't effectively take on these changes without considerable help and feedback from the community that it will effect. So we feel it is an important time to stop and take stock of the present, past, and future. This is an opportunity to let everyone have a chance to comment on what they would like to see, keep, or change.

Welcome to Feedback Days. We are going to be aggressively promoting and invite feedback on a site wide scale.

A - A new forum Feedback Days will be created. (you are in it now)
B - We will suspend the homepage and community forum with a letter inviting feedback.
C - Invitations to participate will pinned to the top of all pages, forums, active list, and index pages.
D - Email and Stickymail will be sent to all active members inviting participation.
E - In 3-4 days, all active members that don't participate will be asked again/poked to do so.
F - Tweets, Facebook, and press releases will point out what is going on.

This will be a free flow of topics and ideas. We will not try to direct the discussions. Seeding the forum by senior members.

We don't care if feedback is positive or negative - it is just feedback and we want/need/desire to hear it all. Your input will directly influence the future of this community. Don't be shy, this could be the most important messages you ever leave.

Thanks
Brett

Thank you for participating in this weeks Feedback Days. I am overwhelmed with the outpouring of posts, pm's, and emails related to this topic. Online communities have been a passion of mine since I first plugged in a modem in 1982 and put my first BBS online in 1984. Thank you so much for stepping up and letting us know what you would like to see changed and/or kept on WebmasterWorld. Both on the policy side as well as on the features and services side.

I am about to reset the homepage to normal. We will leave this forum open for a few more days. We want to be careful that we stay in "listen/feedback" mode and not into a long conversation or debate about the issues.

We will reset the homepage to normal today and leave the feedback forum open for a few more days through the weekend.

After that, I and the team have a long process of analyzing the results and taking action. I am not going to promise anything other than you will see significant changes here in the coming months. I will be making a major post about it within a couple of weeks what we have decided to do.
