Hi, just wondering if we can go back to the way the old forums were set up. Obviously, the new forum design has ran everyone away. Maybe the feeling of being anonymous is gone, and that is why people aren't posting anymore. For one, you have a big picture by everyone's name and where they are from and a link to their profile page. People might just want to post anonymously without anyone knowing who they are. The old forums were separate from the HBCU profiles, and you didn't know who was posting. It was funner that way. Anyway, this is just my opinion. I know it took a while for the HBCU technology team to come up with this new design, but people aren't posting anymore.
I am still here family! The new forum looks really nice, but it is harder to navigate. However, I think the old forum was more intuitive. If the old forum will increase the activity, I recommend going back to the old style.
Yeah, I knew that there was something whacked about the forums. It's new. But the new is suppose to be improved and better, not worse. I contacted HBCU and told them about how the website was flashing all over the place and how I'm already logged in when I go to the page. HBCU had the nerve to ask me, after I told them that I was not having the same problems with the other website that I was going on to, if there was anything wrong with my browser and internet provider. See, that's why black folks is behind everybody else. Because they are too damn slow!
Oh okay! LOL I guess they caught on to folks using up too much company time playing on the internet!
Actually, most companies are utilizing social networking sites to recruit new hires. When companies send offer letters electronically via social networking sites, the acceptance rates are higher compared to mail based offer letters. Therefore, most HR Reps are utilizing the sites to appeal to college students.
