As Opera has grown, we have diversified both in features and products. The forum, which hosted once only a few desktop related sections, has now grown into a large range of products and services. It has grown so big that we've decided it was time to reorganize things a bit.
The upcoming redesign of My Opera was a nice opportunity to present you with a new forum front page (click for full size):
This is the design of the new forum front page. It should allow us to scale up, and add new forums and categories as needed. It also gives the search field a more prominent position (note that we will likely add search tips and a link to the advanced search form as well).
If you click on one of the categories, you will be taken to the same standard forum list as we have today.
When logged in, your subscriptions and the latest forum posts by your friends will appear below the main forum categories.
The design and how the categories are organized is not set in stone, but the final design will be very close to what you see in the screenshot above.
So, what do you think? Makes sense? Yes/no? Tell us your opinion as a comment below or in the forums!
