Nauman,

Thanks for taking the lead on this. I think a simplified version of the forums would benefit ADP tremendously. Here are some suggestions.

New Volunteers:
1) Is there a way to approve people who sign up immediately?
2) Can we put a link to "introduce yourself to ADP" forum thread and express your volunteer interests?
3) Encourage volunteers to upload pictures to the website themselves.

Navigation:
1) Make initial page more intuitive for example:
- Open projects
- Closed projects
- Ideas on improving ADP
- Volunteer opportunities
- New volunteers
- General discussions on development

We shouldn't have more detail showing up other than these main titles on the initial page to minimize confusion.

2) Ensure all projects are correctly assigned (Open/Closed)


Spam:
1)Prevent random spammers from signing up on our forums


Thanks!
Mubarik

Nauman, I like Mubarik's ideas. Simplifying the forums and making them easier to follow will help a lot.

Perhaps you can tap someone on our volunteer network to take on this role? You can search in salesforce for folks who've indicated an interest in web development.

Best,
Tarim
