Hi all

There are a number of challenge threads every year. Up till now, we've always posted the previous year's challenge thread as a 'sticky' at the top of the page. However, as a forum member noted, it does fill up the page quite a bit. So, what do you want to happen to challenge threads from previous years? Should they be stickied? And how many? Just the previous year's? 

Do let us have your ideas and comments.

Best wishes

Could you not put a sticky thread called challenges and put a link to each one in the post? That way you would have 4/5 threads in one sticky?

Hi there,  is it possible to restructure your forum and chat room front page:

First box- guidance and chatrooms (you could have a welcome note of one or two lines on the top of the page)

Second box- new members intros forum

Third box- overcoming problem gambling forum

Fourth box- member challenges to support stopping

Fifth box- recovery diaries and member success stories

Sixth box- family and friends forum

Seventh box- debates and discussion topics 

Eight box- feedback

And if the box thickness of each could be reduced with a short discription for each it would be a cleaner and more intuitive page which would be easier to navigate.  

Thanks for asking for feedback

Yes  I think the challenges should have a special section with maybe a structure of  a 2018 challenge starting at regular intervals January and so on. Perhaps there could be a gamcare challenge or regular named challenges that people can say there would always be one of a certain name starting soon so people can get involved from the start.

Everyone could have their challenge listed in this section so people can easily refer to the challenge they are in. This could be a name or keyword which related to that group. These can then be stickied in some way or moved out of the main header area when completed

I just think at present that the challenges get numerous and need their own section. Then its easier to focus on and navigate the topics in other sections.

Just my thoughts on the matter

All the best
