How important are news for you?

Postby Toby » Sun Jan 13, 2019 9:15 pm

I am interested in your opinion about the news section.

Do you look it up at all or just view the forum topics and read news there?

We show a part of news on the home, and more here: https://se.kiteforum.com/news/

Please let me know what you think.

I need to make up my mind if I want to keep or eliminate it ... and not sure what to do.

But in general I want to concentrate on the most important part of this site...which is the forum and the spots.

Thanks
Toby

Never read but might be a good idea to combine News/Events and move all the Kite Race into it as well

I already deleted the Kiteracer and Events forum and moved the postings into the Kitesurfing forum.

Too many forums, trying to narrow it down.

Thanks

98% of the time I just go straight to the forums.

They’ll get lost in Kitesurfing. Kitesurfing is already too generalized.

News/Events might be a good forum to keep for a while.

I am similar to most respondents: I do not visit the specific news page on this website. I think you can just drop News posts under the "Info" forum, or create a new "News" forum, but it looks like you are trying to simplify, and "Info" should do well.
