Perhaps some sort of table of contents to keep things on a high level and then if you want drill down to it, and an alphabetical index of the scripts could be very usefull.

Thanks Steve and SQLServerCentral Team, you are doing a great job here.

KISS, KISS, KISS

  • Site menu on the top, no matter where you are on the website
  • User menu on the left
  • Ads with on left or right and not in between article headings
  • Bigger site search box (where to put this?)
  • Collapsible article headings and details (nice to have...put last on the 'to-do' list

Just my 2 cents

I have been a subscriber for years, but very rarely respond or otherwise comment. Perhaps it's childish, but it bugs me to be referred to as a "Newbie" because I am an infrequent contributor. Otherwise, I have been a satisfied subscriber. I am sure you have lots of great suggestions from other folks for presentation suggestions.

I would love to see a section that reviews 3rd party software in a video format like CNet does with there Editors reviews of products.  Then a link to real users opinions and rankings of this software would be nice.

I really like the Editorials. I think they add a lot to the newsletter. I like that I can read what other people in the profession think.

One suggestion would be that some of the links don't take us straight to the article. Sometimes I have to click on 2 or 3 links before I find the article. And every once in a while the article isn't there anymore. It would be nice to be able to get to the article with one link.

Please keep the font normal size. After staring into computer screens all day, it is nice to be able to read something in normal font.

Thanks for having this newsletter available! It has been a big help!

Great job; keep up the good work.  I like the following:
    Editorials
    Member-of-the-month (though I don't pay attention to it; it's important)
    Second Look

I agree that the look and feel of the site should be stable; it should rarely change.  Every few years, maybe OK; but every 2 years is probably too much.  Perhaps every 4 to 5 years consider a major change--but only because you have ways to make it better, more useful, etc.  I don't want glitz and glamour; I want elegant, nice design, easy-to-use, not too busy.  I love the fact that it is relatively straight-forward and not too busy.

I like the level of advertising--very good.  I agree with your position on personalization and news.

I agree that the characteristics of the sites you don't like are to be avoided at all costs!  I won't use those types of sites, unless I absolutely have to.

My two things would be to enhanse the Question of the Day; and site layout consistency.

For the Question of the Day it would be nice to be able to see not only the question but also the correct answer for those you have already answered.  Currently I can only see the answer I gave and even that doesn't appear to be easy to find.

For the site layout there appears to be to radically different layouts for the main site and for the forums.  Getting the layout and colors the same would be kind of nice.

Just my two bits,
Jereme

Whatever you do please remove the bold on links feature. Its very annoying. Community Server is releasing(or has it released it already?) a new version CS2. I hear its pretty good. Perhaps we can use CS2? They allow some user customization too. forums.asp.net uses CS if you want to check it out.

I have to agree, this feature has caused me some minor annoyances as well.

Just to add a +1 for the removal of the bolding of links..

As another idea how about a SQL Server Cookbook esque wiki for common admin/sql tasks?
