Just a thought about organising the forum

Recommended Posts

If my old & not-so-reliable memory is not playing tricks on me, didn't this forum used to be called just "Questions" rather than "Questions  & Feedback"? Either way, "Feedback" is a very broad, unspecific term, which probably is one (small?) reason things get posted here instead of in the correct forum.


Another not-so-small reason is a lot of people do not seem aware that there are both Mac & Windows versions or that betas are not the same as retail products. Add not-always available Trial versions to the mix & we potentially have up to twelve products (two apps x two platforms x three versions) already, with more to come once Publisher & the iOS version(s) reach beta.


I think the confusion about this could be reduced if somewhere on the site there was a 'product matrix' page with a spreadsheet-like grid listing the three categories (retail, beta, & trial) as columns, with the Mac products in one section of rows, the Windows in another, & eventually the iOS ones in a third. Each cell in the grid could contain the current version number if available & "N/A" or "Soon" if not, & if applicable a link to the download or purchase info (like Serif or Mac App Store).
