Default Launch of new 'Articles' section - still work in progress.

About six weeks ago, I launched the concept of a content contributor group..

Behind the scenes a number of discussions have been going on about what we want this group of people to contribute and how. A demo articles section has been live for approximately one month. With various things happening (FCS, new server switch, etc, etc) both the launch of the new section and the new content, which needs to be placed within it, have been delayed.

I've decided to launch the new articles section NOW, still work in progress, so that I'm under a bit more pressure to deliver and also because it gives you all the chance to see what we are working on and allows you the opportunity to shape the end result.

Over the coming weeks, more of the older article content will transfer over to the new section. There are already quite a few new articles work in progress, some of which promise to be very informative!

The article categories and sub-categories will also need to develop as the new content is released. It will all become obvious, when you see the simple layout in place.

It has been decided that the articles should not allow public replies and so if you have some constructive feedback for the author, please contact him/her via PM/email/pager, etc.

If you appreciate the content shown within any article, the 'Thanks' buttons are active. Please make use of these to show your appreciation and encourage the content contributors to work harder.

If you'd like to get involved with the content contributor group and really do want to help to develop articles, then please request your application in the group memberships section, within your user cp. (details in thread linked at top of this post).

As ever, I appreciate your feedback. Fresh content will be published as soon as possible. Currently, the content, which has been focussed upon is Premium Member How-To Guides and discounts. (sorry non-Premium Members)

Click the ARTICLES button at the top of the page to visit the new section. Page navigation will be simplified in the next few days.

Thanks
Simo

Nobody's got anything to say?

There are about a dozen more articles that should be added to this section in the next few days. Is this something anyone is actually interested in? lol

Wicked idea tbh. It can be a pain in the ass trying to find help guides and such like. Especially when people reply to a question with 'there's guide on here somewhere'. At least now they will all be in one place.
One question though, if someone created a guide will they be able to put it straight in to the 'Articles Section' or will you have to sort that one out once it is approved?

'official' guides, which will live in the articles section will need to be approved by the content contributor team before they are placed in the new section. This means we get the opportunity to add constructive feedback and also shape the look & feel a little. Also linke dimages, etc are managed via the Saxperience server, to ensure longevity.

Anyone can request to join the content contributors team, but only people who actively contribute will remain within the group.

Simo

Just had a quick nosy and looks like a good section - something I will use in the near future I reckon.

Good work so far

A fair amount of effort has been put into developing the articles section, but unfortunately it appears to be overlooked by many people, which will in turn, slow the development of this section, if it is not of interest.

To try and turn the corner, I've added the articles section to the forum listing to see if this improves popularity. The more articles are appreciated, the more the authors will be inclined to create fresh content

The articles section is currently placed within the 'Saxperience Community Related Forum', so please take a look. Some forums are restricted to Premium Members, some are open to all. The content and setup will continue to evolve, if member interest is shown.

Thanks,
Simo

Your choice fella...

The navigation on the top left corner tells it all really. I can improve this, but without anyone using it, there's been little point

Im guessing you wont be contributing to the regional section then either, which is a shame
