QCA Is Simplifying the Forums!

Greetings QCA Members!

We wanted to let you all know that QCA will be doing some long overdue housekeeping in the forums over these next couple weeks. Our goal is to reduce the number of forums and (hopefully) make it easier for you to use and enjoy the forums on the site.

Don't worry, we won't be deleting any active topics or discussion threads. But you will find that many of the forums they reside in (such as Tools, Quilt Care, Start Quilting, etc.) will all be rolled into Quiltmaking. If at any time you discover that an important topic is getting "lost" in the new forums, we can always add a new forum or create a separate group just for your topic. For example, we are creating a QCA Group for fabric swaps with it's own separate area for discussions.

Still not sure how this will work? Here are some visual maps of where we are and where we will be when the housekeeping is done.

The current list of forum groups and forums looks like this:

When we are done, this long list will be reduced to just three main forum groups and nine forums:

The new groupings look much more concise.  Hopefully this will make it easier to know where to put a topic.  Thanks.

Thanks for the organisation. I've been getting tons of old posts in my email. I think I now know why.

Kris,

Thanks for letting me know about your e-mails. While I am not sure if moving the discussion threads has caused all the anonymous e-mails, it may be a likely reason. Hopefully by the time I finish you won't have any more trouble with them!

Thanks for your patience!

QCA Liz S.
