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!

This is one of my favorite sites! Keep it simple. Thanks for all the work you do Manny!
How about if the poster doesn't respond to what the community people are saying - say within 7 days - it goes into history and newer posts take its place.
I look for posters to add more information about their problem or for posters to respond to what's been said. Without responses by posters, one has no idea what information can be helpful (or not).
And while the general discussion may be useful, the poster's response gives it life.
There's a lot of interesting inforation in old threads though. I have a few I mention occasionally. I also am intrigued by threads from a few years ago that have a different cast, sometimes including people who at least I haven't run into around the site, that I refer to in my head as "ghosts" or "ghost threads"
Archives could be kept in memory, and when a topic is entered into the Search option, the archives can be accessed too.
A question: I've noticed recently that there are a lot less groups on the right hand side than there used to be. Previously the featured groups there were in order of how recent the last post was, so I always scanned it to see the ones I was interested in reading new posts on. Is that no longer the case?
I just clicked on the top two and they do still seem to be the ones with the most recent activity, but there are less of them so it would be easy to miss one if you don't check in very frequently. Would it be possible to increase the number of groups listed to how it used to be?
Zoe, have you looked at the Groups page
I know there are 29 pages here of Groups, it's kinda fun to look through them..
and you can sort the list by most active, largest, latest group, alphabetical, etc
Thanks, Marie. I got kind of used to just looking to the right when I read the forum and seeing if any of the ones I like came up recently, rather than having to go to another page. Was there a reason the number of groups in that column was decreased,
I use "my page" and just look at the groups I am in over there. For a while that got cumbersome but then I figured out how to switch it to display all of "my" groups?
Thanks, AR. Sometimes I think I'm fighting a losing battle with technology where the tech geeks think more complex is always better than simple.
Anyone know of a diabetes site that allows you to do live chat with others? I know I read it somewhere in all of these replies that would be an excellent add to this great site.
There used to be a live chat option here, but it was very very slow and was removed. There are a few other sites that have chat, but I imagine it is expensive to install and maintain.
Many of us live-chat on Twitter -- you just have to know who to follow. There is a Diabetes Social Media Advocacy chat on Twitter each Wednesday night at 9PM Eastern (hashtag #dsma), and a corresponding Blog Talk Radio show (DSMA Live) on Thursday evenings at 9PM Eastern. The BTR show includes a chat window for registered members.
