The forums were an important element to the voice of the community, however they were also complicated and daunting to many users in their old format. Often finding the answer you needed was like finding a needle in a haystack. This is probably why visitor numbers to the forums were so low.
The 'Community' area is the new system we have that will host all of the communities’ questions and feedback. This collaborative area will be the “go-to” place for when you have a query, want to ask a question or suggest an idea to the Blipfoto community.
