Redesign the Bulletin Boards
The reason why so few companies are discussed here is because the site design is the least user friendly of the BB's. I alone am now up to a list of 28 people who say that if the discussion boards were better designed they would post on companies. As it is, they don't bother visiting.
I disagree. I find the BB design, with anchoring to companies, powerful formatting features and good search considerably better than that of ADVFN or TMF.
If there is anything other users don't like BE SPECIFIC on what changes you'd like to see. Often dislike is simply driven by unfamiliarity. It's worth spending the time to understand the design ethos behind S'pedia, IMO.
However, I do feel S'pedia management have taken their eyes off the BB ball, whilst developing the Pro version and effort is needed to bring "buzz" back to the BBs.
