Messy forum structure : Rework Planned

Hello CEans!

I'm aware that we can do a better job with the forum structure. Our current structure is a little complex and doesn't give a feel of "Engineering Forum".

Let me assure you that I have a new structure in my mind 😁 . While we will have to wait till we actually restructure the forum, feel free to drop in your comments & feedback.

I'll announce the date and planned downtime for our site. Till then, keep doing a good job & have fun!

Hi biggie,
Are you changing the forum look or entire structure of the forum?

Dont forget to take suggestions from previous discussions too! We talked a lot about it before 😁

If you like I can make the banner. Gimme idea on what theme and color theme we want.

Mahesh, we will change the sections while retaining the look 😁 ! You will see lot of restructuring and (probably) a new section for CE-Projects!

Hay biggi, why not make it CE - Projects and Tutorials?

Guys the most technical guides can be there, giving some permition for attachments for each user. It will be easier to post pics and schematics etc.

What banner are you talking about xHx? The colors must match with those on our forums.

We will also need lot of new content for our new structure. We cannot afford to have empty sections 😉

...probably one of the things which keep me addicted to CE 😁!

Whats up with this? I am aware of the MBA section which you talked about in your posts.

Although I do not visit frequently, I do keep a watch on CE. Let me know if I can do something.

Sure, I'll wait for it. I'll announce the rework date really soon. Let me assure you that a better structure is evolving which will address almost all issues reported by CEans.

Please feel free to drop your ideas. Yep, we will need lot of new topics for our new structure. I'll make the announcement in a day or two.😀

I'd like to have your feedback on following -

Do we really need separate sections for -

  • Electrical Engineering
  • Electronics Engineer
  • Electronics & Telecommunication Engineering
I think the discussions can be combined under "Electrical & Electronics Engineering" section.

Ofcourse we should combine these, becuase the topics are interrelated. Seperate sections can create confusion as to where to post a question because electronics can be a very dynamic subject.

Moreover even the best electronic dedicated forums have several topics combined.

Thats perfect. Having separate sections will not solve any purpose. I think that the restructure is planned on 25th November. Big K, don't you want to announce?

I will, shortly. The new CE structure is almost ready and I'm now thinking about better names for sections. The restructuring is going to be a "planned" activity; we cannot afford to go wrong at any point 😁

Yep! Feedback! is all I need! If new ideas pop up in your head, don't hesitate to put them on the forums 😁

This will help CE to be a better community.

One thing I like about CrazyEngineers is that it is always improving! I can't wait to see the reworked forums!

Split the CE higher education center into three sections as it was discussed on the forum before. It will be really useful.

I have already mailed my suggestions to you, biggie. I hope the much awaited IT help section will find its place in the reworked structure.

@ Jerry: CE IT Help section will be a part of new CE. But I'm not sure if it will have the same name. The aim is to make it generic enough to include all technical difficulties

@Rick: CE is Big and its getting bigger everyday. Let us hope to have more activity & more active members as we grow.
