Forum Problem vs. Website Problem
« on: October 07, 2014, 09:52:55 pm »
Since an internet forum exists on the web, what is the difference between a Forum Problem and a Website Problem.

Or, to phrase it differently, what do we define the Website as, if it's not the Forum?

That's a fair question.   Chuckle.

On this forum page there are two categories of problems, and I don't know the difference between the two of them

This is the forum... pages found at forum.cog-online.org

The Web site refers to COGs home page and other web pages at www.cog-online.org

They are different and reside on separate severs - although it is nice to know most members/users find the integration seamless.

There is more to be gained by members raising hands saying "I'll do that" instead of pointing fingers saying "nobody's doing that."

Does seem kind of redundant to have two separate sections. The forum is a specific group of data on a website. And neither section is so busy that we really need two.

The descriptions do provide some clue as to the thoughts behind the decision to have two separate sections:

Forum Problems
This is where you can provide issues, tips and tricks etc about the COG Forum.

Website problems
The place to provide feedback etc on our website

IIRC - The original intent was to separate membership portal site issues from forum site issues, because the forum was a separate spin up at that time.  Merging both into one section (Website Problems) makes perfect sense at this point based on your observation that they both have low traffic. Bounce this off Colin and make it so.
