Dedicated forum threads for each product

by redwire on Mon Mar 18, 2013 12:48 pm

Adafruit, there's no way I can find to give feedback or discuss a product, other than the mess here. Sparkfun has dedicated threads for each product- that really helps when there's an issue with an item and it keeps the discussion in one container.
Can you please add this to your website?

He's giving a general suggestion for improvement, I don't think a specific product is involved. I think it's a pretty good idea myself.

The reason is that you form a micro-community around a specific product, and then more ideas, suggestions, and help will flow and coalesce around each product.

That's pretty basic forum organization philosophy.

I'm giving a general idea for improving the site and Adafruit :)
Many products I find could benefit from the community's suggestions etc. and right now, the way the website is setup, you have to search a zillion threads and condense all the information, and I just find Sparkfun organized things so much better.
