New Forums Site Map

As addition to the mapping from old ITRC tree to the new forums I created a complete forums list, perhaps it is handy for someone that cannot find the right forum.

 

Please find it as attachment.

 

Additional I hope HP takes it as a reason for some consolidations, some examples:

 

  • naming convention
  • notation variations
  • double forums
  • reorganization categories
  • ...

If helpful or needed I can provide some more details.

 

Best,

Stephan

  • Nice job Stephan. Thanks for creating this. I know we have some double forums especially in the HP Software and Solutions area, but we wanted to make sure that the ITRC forums stayed recognizable to ITRC members when we migrated it over as we already had some support forums on specific products in the community.

     

    We will be evaluating the forums in a few months to see what makes sense and we will look for feedback from our members as they are the ones using the forums.

     

    Any feedback you can provide is appreciated.

  • Thanks for the feedback, after finding out the limits of a single post it was quite some work. Perhaps it is possible to stick this thread as the other one to the top.

     

    Please find attached some suggestion as I would expect/find more useful/... the structure of the forums.

    I did it not for all 502 Categories/forums/blogs due to the fact that looked like a bit overkill to me. ;-)

     

    I'm pretty sure you get my idea of the layout. Regarding the idea to keep all ITRC forums, this is very welcome but in my opinion you have now anyway the whining and bitching' due the migration - want it again if you change the structure in some months? You made the big bang now, make it transparent f.e. with a map like suggested from me and realized by Michael Leu which ITRC forum belongs to which new one.

     

    Best,

    Stephan

    I disagree with your suggestion of having General first.  This encourages users to be sloppy and to put the topic there rather than to have them think.  And then they need to be moved to the proper board, which causes more work for me and the admins.

    I.e. General should be last, except for those obsolete boards.

     

    Your new topics for OS may have lots of complaints.  I don't see the catch all Sysadmin.

    And worse of all, how are you going put the old topics in the new organization?

     

    And of course I don't like Languages and scripting changed to Scripting & Development.  ;-)
