Evolving the Naim Forum
Posted by: Charlie Henderson on 10 January 2019
For the Naim family, conversation and discussion is everything (apart from the music of course!)
We love to encourage the debate and support the sharing of some extraordinary expertise across the Naim Forum, and it is one of the foundations of our world. We all participate in the community in different ways, and to varying degrees, but one thing is for sure, it is fascinating, informative, passionate, and loads of fun.
So, we want to make it even easier to do this, and weíre going to be moving to a new Forum software platform from Tuesday 15th January 2019. Yes, itíll be a change, but we're not just changing things for the sake of it. Itís a decision thatís not been taken lightly, and is simply intended to make it easier for you all to continue to do what you do best Ė share your thoughts, frustrations, expertise and aspirations. For example, youíll be able to access elements of the Forum more easily from more devices, but the fundamentals of the Forum will remain as they are today.
And it goes without saying, youíll be able to access and search all old and current topics. It may take a couple of weeks as we continue preparing an archive of all existing Forum posts, but we will lose nothing as we make the transition.
One of the great features of the new Forum is the ability to run polls. We intend to use these intensively as a feedback tool to create a more dynamic community, shaped by the feedback you provide, but it also gives all Forum members the opportunity to run their own polls too. Other features include the ability to access the Forum through a mobile app and post images directly, making the Forum a much more visually exciting place too.
Iím sure some may be concerned by the move but we are doing this to help evolve and continue supporting the Naim Forum as the heart of our community. We look forward to feedback as the team move things across, and please bear with us as we do so, itís a significant team effort. Iím sensitive to the fact that the change may not suit everyone straight away, but weíre genuinely doing it for the right reasons Ė to ensure the future of the Naim Forum as the heart of our community.
