Forums : Ohloh General Discussion

Announcement: You provided feedback. We listened.

Over past several weeks we received a lot of constructive suggestions for our site. The suggestions can be grouped into five areas: UI improvements, project editing, project requests, discussions and notifications.

Improving the UI: We have removed parts of the site that folks didn't use and have made the current site more readable and navigable.

Editing a Project:You can edit a project by logging in and using our wiki to edit items such as the project description, project homepage, and the project source code repository.

Adding a Project: You can put projects into the system to be indexed by logging in and supplying a project description, a project homepage and project source code repository information.
Discussions: We've added this forum page as well as project forum pages so that users can debate Ohloh's service and a project's metrics.
Receiving Notifications: Our users can receive notifications via RSS such as when a project has been indexed, when a project has been updated and when someone has posted to a particular discussion.

I'm sure that Jason and Robin will go into more depth about these changes in this forum and on the Ohloh blog.

We hope these improvements to our site make Ohloh more fun and useful. Give it a try and please let us know how we can make further improvements to our service.
