Group title, description and image - as they are now
Agree. It's a really good look. And I like that the host can change the image or description, so if the group would like a change it can be done easily and quickly.
Group forum - as it is now
‘All current work’ - all work presently posted in the group, listed in date order of latest activity.
Mostly agree, but I would prefer it to be in order of work posted rather than activity, otherwise work would end up jumping up and down the page. Also, sometimes new group members who haven't yet realised that it's more relevant to comment on recent work, comment on work posted a year or more ago, and it could appear at first that a revised version of the work has been posted by the author.
Each item in the list to include title of work, author (+ link to profile), date of latest activity, and links to the 2 or 3 latest comments.
Agree. It would be useful to see at a glance which recent comments relate to which work.
It isn’t necessary to include the author’s summary of the work. And, to keep it really simple, there’s no need for the word count or the number of comments link.
Mostly agree. The summary looks nice but takes up too much room on the page. I have already found the number of comments link useful, but then again it wouldn't be needed if there are links to latest comments because it would be clear there has been a new comment.
‘Latest activity’ - as it is now. Could be useful.
Personally, I'm not keen on having forum comments grouped together with work comments and 'likes', etc. Replies to forum posts already show numerically in the forum section, but perhaps unread replies could be shown beside the overall number.
‘Group members’ - delete all of this as members will be listed under ‘All current work’.
I find a members list useful, although at the moment it takes up a lot of room and perhaps it could be arranged horizontally across the page instead of vertically. I like to see when a new member has joined (but might not have posted work yet) so I can welcome them to the group. To that end, if it was possible I would prefer if the members were listed in order of how long they have been in the group, rather than according to points.
