Registration is now open for the new Go Media Forum! Why a forum? I originally planned it to mainly offer support for customers of The Arsenal. However I received a lot of messages from folks who wanted it to become a popular hangout for the design community.
While I would love that idea, it usually takes a community of great members to establish a forum as a go-to place for inspiration and resources. It’s not just up to me.
If the Go Media forum is to be what people want it to be, then it will take some outstanding design citizens to make it that way. A good forum is a place where a designer can promote his or her own work, get feedback, and help others. If done right, motivated members of the forum see an increase in their own brand awareness and often an increase in new work for him or her. Their expertise and dedication to the community will always help their bottom line.
I will continue to provide support for our customers and readers. So feel free to sign up and start posting on the forums. I am looking for forum moderators too so I’ll be paying attention to who participates and looks like they would make a good mod. In fact, Simon Hartmann, a loyal Go Media reader, has stepped up to be the initial moderator.
As always if anyone has suggestions on how we can make it better for the design community, let me know!
