Forum Layout Reorganization Coming Late Tonight (Feb.12/2013)
As promised in my From the Editor's Desk post this week, THE NEW CRACKBERRY is almost here.
One of the things we've been planning is a revamp to the layout of the forums. When I say layout I don't mean the visual look of the forums, but the structure... how the forums are grouped and ordered down the page. When we first organized the forums many moons and BlackBerry devices, we were only dealing with the BlackBerry OS. Now we also have the PlayBook OS, and also BlackBerry 10, which is totally different. Some forums are still relevant for all of the operating systems and devices, while others are not.
Forum organization is ALWAYS a compromise, but I think we've figured out a pretty good forum layout that should work pretty well to address everything.
So late tonight, we'll be working through the wee hours of the morning to get everything moved around. It should go well. Fingers crossed. Change always takes a little getting used to, so get ready for it. But it should be good! And if there's anything we find doesn't work as well in practice as we thought it would in our planning, we'll just tweak it up after. One way or another it'll work and be awesome.
Once we roll out the full out website redesign, we'll be doing a further update to the forums to update the look to match the new design theme.
Tonight's changes are not a style change yet. That will come later. This is reorganizing the LAYOUT of the forums... how they're grouped, the way they appear, etc.
The theme update will come with the site relaunch... happening soon, but not tonight. But yeah, will look awesome too.

It always amaze me what you find when you actually scroll past the halfway point on the first forum page.
like: "There is a marketplace, whaaaat?" Lol
@CBK keep up the good work... Actually all of #teamcrackberry working hard behind the scenes THANK YOU!!
*cracks whip* now get back to making my favorite site awsomerrr
Ok. 4:30am. Bed time for now....
That went pretty well. Lots of logical restructuring done.
Will finish tidying up in the morning. We have new icons to go in, more carrier sub forums to go in for international, and a few other things to tweak up (descriptions, etc. etc.)
But overall structure is grouped more cleanly. Condensed things down... still have room to grow!

I've noticed that the forum for the Z1o has a stickey thread for users to post their screenshots, but other BB users have their screenshot threads in the Wallpaper forum. Please consider moving the screenshot threads to their respective BB forum and also making them stickeys. Thank you..
