Some of the descriptions of the Groups (e.g. the Artists Network and some others) have hard-returns in their text descriptions, so that depending on the width of the browser you view them with, they may have lines of oddly variable length. The hard-returns in the descriptions should be removed.March 31, 2014 at 9:19 am #1367

The current site is not well optimized for viewing on mobile devices, so for now you should evaluate it on a PC/ laptop, etc. …

I received an email “daily digest of group activity” this morning (for the H+ Writers Network) that told me:
I found that annoying; if there are 0 items for me to look at, in a group, I’d prefer not to receive any notification.
On a related matter: the email contained two hotlinks apparently to “H+ Writers Network”. But the first of these seems to have a malformed URL: clicking on it only takes me to a new copy of my email inbox. (The second one, however, was correct.)April 18, 2014 at 12:28 am #1382MarkParticipant
I appreciate the effort to build something new. However I am going to be a critic here and say that this looks just like another Forum with a off-brand news feed plugin that tries to imitate Facebook while falling short of being a true social network. I don’t see anything real modern about this. As you may know, a H+ Forum was built around 2009-2010, but it was taken offline because it wasn’t used very much.
I suggest *not* throwing WordPress plugins at the site and calling it modern. It really needs a thoughtful design which offers something truly new and useful, with a big-picture in mind. I really want something like this to succeed because it would be good for the community. But I don’t see it happening if the site is going to look the way it is now.
Less forum categories would be helpful as well. It’s best to keep things simple (but useful) and gradually expand from there if there is demand for new features, and a userbase to take advantage of those features.
