Dear forum readers,
We have revamped China Daily forum front page to make it simple and clear. The newly revamped forum highlights some of the most discussed topics with original functions remain unchanged.  


As the revamp continues with the sub-sections, you are free to leave your comments and suggestions to make it better. If you have some problems about the revamped page, you are free to share your opinions. Thanks for your support and cooperation!

Who designed this revamp? Were members consulted first? Seems confusing and poorly laid out to me at first sight.

Can't find how to access new threads quickly.
The threads highlighted seem poorly chosen, as some are very old.

Was this new layout tested for 'user friendliness' before launching, or is this what you are doing now?

verdict - not user friendly.

Certainly not a 'user friendly' way of finding the latest threads - the user has to guess where the new threads have been posted and search for them. not very intuitive.

Also, the threads with the most replies tend to be the ones with the most passive aggressive comments of the 'I'm not, you are' variety, not the ones with the most varied or interesting comments.

And are you doing anything about the obvious 'ghost' accounts?
Also, the plagiarised threads started by 'staffer's' who don't credit their sources?

But surely you should have asked for opinions BEFORE a total revamp of the site.
