I am not sure I can make the new "Community" site work well enough for us even if I wanted to. I posted these comments on the "Community" site:
If LLS cares about the long term members who have been on the LLS Support Groups, here are comments:
Give posts titles. Add a title block. Without titles it is just a jumbled mess.
The "Search" function only searches on the stuff posted by LLS, unless the user clicks another button, Not very intuitive.
Must separate the Member posts from the LLS posts -- need separate sections of the site. Sorry to say, the LLS posts are generally useless to us, and they take up a huge amount of space with all the graphics. And most are just ads for drug companies.
This Community site is mainly a "push site" where LLS pushes stuff toward us. That is not what we want or need. We want and need a place to communicate with each other, not have LLS push stuff at us. The LLS stuff gets in the way of the stuff we care about, which is talking to each other. Sorry, but we do not want to talk to LLS. We actually know more about this disease than LLS does. We should be treated accordingly.
If our old posts are migrated over it will be useless unless they are searchable. This Community site does not currently do that.
Ditch the Medvizor graphics, if not all their stuff entirely. They are spam to us.
We almost never had a spam problem on the other LLS site. Justifying this new site as protecting us better from spam is misinformation. If the issue is cost, LLS is paying way too much for the Community site since they are getting junk.
LLS did not fix most of the things I suggested two years ago. Probably will not fix these issues, either. Too bad, LLS has given us a nice place to talk for many years. Now LLS has forgotten what their mission is. Very sad.
