    Gooooo Brother @Aj_Pfeil nice work I think the duda team will jump in the Community more. PS. Is Pizazz same as sexy? LOL

    Yes. Depending on context. In this case yes.

    Thank you @Shane_Hodge for dragging @Aj_Pfeil into this :)

    @Aj_Pfeil we feel your pain and are definitely invested in giving the design a bit more oomph. We want this space to be functional to help you find what you're looking for, but we also want it to be a visually engaging space deserving of a community of web designers and developers!

    We'd love to hear more if you want to share what you have in mind with 'pizzaz' or even mention a few communities you like (we won't mind, we promise).

    As for bringing more of the Duda team into the fold, this is a serious priority for us moving forward and you should expect to see a lot of friendly Duda faces around here (aside from my own 😊).

    I don't like the colour of the design either, it seems a bit off but I think that would be an easy fix.

    I find too many things "above the fold" including too many big icons, huge empty banner with a search box, pinned posts that stay there too long, so when I come to check it I have to keep scrolling to get to the new stuff ... Because of this, I don't find it that intuitive or that easy to use.

    There's lots to like too - but I'm only focusing on the negatives because you asked for a roasting and I wanted to deliver πŸ˜‚

    Worthy of a "roast"?

    Advertising Wordpr*ss in the App Store? Really? πŸ˜‚

    Agree with AJ in regard to more Duda resources becoming engaged in the community. It would be nice to see product news and updates from a product manager, information and updates per marketing on sales collateral (new white label sales resources), possibly a 'Did You Know?' campaign from support or engineering on time saving shortcuts and/or workarounds to known issues or limitations. Per ideation, if certain features have formal commitments - perhaps they can share the forecast with us on when we can anticipate the release for a requested feature.

    Per Vanessa's comment - I agree that the official community should be easier to consume. It should be quick to see unanswered questions, discussions with no comments, new members to welcome, new badge announcements, and maybe we can fit more content onto the screen. Lower font sizes slightly, lessen some padding, make better use of the right side column white space, allow more posts before requiring a page 2 click, etc.

    Overall, I'm a huge fan of having a formal community vs Facebook groups. The official community is going to need to leverage its strengths per categories, tags, and exclusivity in order to eventually drive more community engagement here vs. Facebook.

    While not related to the community, this is a good catch - thanks @Bill_Sholar!

    Tagging the excellent @Russ_Jeffery who will be able to get that messaging squared away.
