    Hi team techtown!

    By now, I hope you are comfortable using the site, and that you have used many of the new features. I’m interested in your thoughts about the upgrade. 

    All feedback is welcome – good and bad. I’d also love to hear your thoughts on any missing features.

    One tech who replies with feedback will win a techtown backpack filled with site goodies!

    -Scott, techtown mayor

    I think it’s great.

    Takes a little to get used to navigating but once you get it down, it’s really easy.

    I do wish I could move this window around when I’m replying so I can read what you wrote. 

    The top where it should show it, get’s cut off into the second line.

    Other than that, I think it’s awesome.

    I just wish there was more activity.

      All excellent feedback. I’ll work on finding a way to make the window repositionable/reiszeable. 

      As for more activity: don’t change that dial, I’m working on some good stuff 🙂

    No problem,

    It’s not so much articles and stuff like that, more like people coming here with problems, I’m sure there’s lots of techs out there who could use this site.

    Perhaps, getting Parts Town to throw in Tech Town cards or something like that in with the parts people order would help.

    Good!  It seems to take images now…or maybe I just hadn’t figured it out before.

    However, I guess the option to edit a post is long gone now?

    So, I hadn’t expected to post the same attachment each and every time I reply within the same thread. 

    Can you make it not do that?

    I like it. Navigation is easy. I did find it difficult to reply to a comment instead of to the main thread. The shiny red reply button is for the main thread while the three dots on the comment is where you reply to a comment. I found my way here via an email.

    Thank you to everyone so far for their feedback. I’ll definitely look into some of the issues mentioned and we will continue to make the site even better!

    Anyway we can filter topics by manufacturer?  Some of us specialize more on some vs. others and filtering can make it faster to find.

    Also, some email notification settings would be nice.  Like selecting when to notify me like a response to a thread I participated in, manufacturer specific question, etc.

      Yes, that feature is coming very soon. We’re putting the finishing touches to it, and making sure it works perfectly before rolling out.
