Based on feedback we are going to try to be more pro-active in getting members involved in updates to the system before we make them. This will prevent people from being so surprised when something changes and also get feedback before implementing a change.
One of the changes we plan to make in the next several days is changing the current categories/channels that blog posts can be added to. Current it looks like:
Instead we are going to change it to, two categories with several sub categories.
For Real Estate Professionals
- ActiveRain Community
- Industry News
- Tips, Tricks and Advice
- Real Estate Opinions
- Off topic, humor, etc
- General Information and Advice
- Regional Information
- Regional News
- Advertising a listing
- Other service advertisement
What this will allow us to do it provide some better post viewing options, and also better display content to consumers. The existing viewing options would still be available all posts for real estate professionals could be viewed regardless of sub-category. We want to get feedback on the categories we are planning to offer. The idea is to keep the list of categories reasonably short, and if need be, we can offer more later.
