In the coming days we will be moving a few things around on the site, searching for ways to optimize the TuDiabetes experience for everyone. If you have any ideas or suggestions about ways to do this, please post them in here, so we can explore them.
Thank you so much!

The changes will happen specially on the home page. I
MPORTANT: Please let us know what do you think of the features we have on the very top of the main page, for example: the rotating banners on the top of the page, the Left Side Navigation (blue-green buttons)
or the TuAnalyze box bellow the banners...
They are all taking some prime space at the top of the page, however we think they are important because,
Banners: Feature discussions, blogs, etc. Rotating visual element help us get a sense of space, belonging?
Left Side Navigation: Help people, specially new members find relevant content organized by topic.
TuAnalyze Box: Updates members of TuAnalyze findings or facts.
Members box: face of our community.
Please let us know your thoughts!
I have noticed the formatting options on a reply like this are gone. For instance I can't make a word into a link. Tried both Internet Explorer and Firefox.
Hi, we noticed that was not working... I think it is working now, right? Let us know what do you see...
Moo Test. (Chrome, btw)
Works in Chrome... before and after edit too
Works now, thanks.
What about having links to research sites and/or having a technical research area beyond forums to keep people up to date on advances? For example, you could add categories, CGM's, Artificial pancreas, Insulin, BG meters, Pumps and infusion sets.
Do you mean, adding those categories to the forum?
maybe adding a new area all together, my thoughts were around Technology and how we could see what is all being worked on in a simplified view. For example, I came across the HG1-c CGM being developed by C8 MediSensors and did not realize it had already been talked about multiple times. (I should have done a search first :( ) But if there was a technology page that enabled someone to drill down to what is happening with CGM's there can be a single place to provide update to the research/product as well as links to the reviews and discussions on it?
I think rpwils may be talking about full-text indexing all entries and putting up a keyword index for all therapies (available and/or being researched). This should, in theory, be worked from the side of the thread initiator, but as we've seen, a popular topic may move off the originally-intended keywords into totally different areas.
Hi Emmy and Doris,
Thank you very much. We agree, sometimes it is hard to find the right information...
TuDiabetes runs on a platform called Ning... there are some limitations to what we can do with this platform. The platform let us organize content by latest activity and that is the main reason that the Omnipod group come up first. However, the idea we had with the Left side navigation is that we could organize the content in a way that is less interactive. (it is not perfect, and we need to update it more often)
Are you recommending we change the order of the items in this Navigation? Right now we have:
New to Diabetes?
Nutrition and Recipes
Control your Diabetes
Would you add or take out any of this categories, change order, (we can not go too long, of course)
