Captain's Blog... From the Forum founder Jules

Welcome to this Blog.

As the founder of Gearslutz I thought I would start this blog to update on behind the scenes info ongoing activities + new functionality & hopes and wishes for the Gearslutz.com forum going forwards. It's been an exciting 14 years and is a great personal pleasure of mine to host this forum.

Here's to many more years!

After a bumpy start, our recommended / favorite gear nominations are underway and members are contributing a lot - Many thanks! Keep it up.

The idea from these came from meeting GS members at trade shows and them telling me that sometimes they don't want to real long threads - and just want to get quickly to crowd sourced "wisdom" on what to buy.

We will be doing a lot of polls on affordable gear and what to to start with when first putting a studio together. So its the communities chance to help fellow recording fans out.

Please join in here..

As new elements of the revamped forum get rolled out for all to see we are gathering criticism and suggestions.

"Just put it back as it was" demands are ignored

but we are listening.

Development goes in phases

Stage 1: Live roll out

Make notes / get feedback / frustration /

Stage 2 Implement fixes / incorporate users suggestions or create new solutions

There is enough work for 10 full time developers but we have 2 working semi part time.

Things take time, often progress seems slow.

Slowly inching forwards

The goal is to have one simple layout - so users will gradually see the legacy "styles" available (see attached) disappear. Visitors using rare browsers, on oddball non standard operating systems may find they have to access the site via a standard computer or a mobile device. We can't continue to support niche systems.



Onwards and upwards!

New design launched!

Quite a few people disliked it but we feel we must press forward and modernise. We did get SOME positive comments! (check out the reviews and classifieds sections)

One of the main grumbles was the lack of at a glance notifications that someone just quoted you. So we rallied to quickly develop a new green alert number count badge functionality that shows you have been quoted and provides a display of who, where and a link to rejoin the conversation.

We also have the asked for text snippet removal and avatar removal on our user options to-do list.

I hope to meet some of you at the AES show in LA please see below for AES info and details of a Gearslutz Brunch on Saturday October 1st. Come on down!
