I really find this Discourse platform (or Feverbee configuration) difficult to navigate. I get the sense that it’s got a bunch of very cool features and analytics, but I haven’t figured out what they are or how they can help me as a user have a good experience. I never know where I am in this community nor how to easily find a post again. Granted, I have not sat down and done any tutorial nor invested much time in understanding the platform metaphor…but why isn’t it more intuitive?!
I honestly can’t say I enjoy coming here to browse. I come because I get a direct link to a post that intrigues me. Once here, I have, unfortunately, little incentive to stay. I click around a bit, but the find it overwhelming and lacking structure…and I leave.
Rather than just feel frustrated about yet another unfulfilling Feverbee visit, today I came back to start a post about this frustration and see what I might learn from fellow Feverbees.
I’m no luddite, and can obviously get around in here a bit, but it feels the interface and navigation get in the way of me actually communicating with peers and building relationships. Maybe I’m asking too much of my limited engagement.
What I am missing? Am I the only one? Am I too old school? Help is appreciated.
