Ok here’s my honest opinion (this from a guy that thrives on change)… I’m not criticizing but attempting to give an honest take on this: The new WPMU Dev Dashboard plugin should NOT be required to hold a membership or use WPMU Dev plugins. For one, the plugin is extremely annoying and infiltrates many areas of my once clean network admin screen. The dedicated menu is unnecessary and should be in the settings or updates menu as before. I should be able to turn off the WPMU meta box in the network dashboard screen as well. I might have to hack that. I know your desire is to make things more convenient and to have a platform through which to promote new things to folks, I get that, we do the same thing with our web promotion, but give people a very easy and convenient way to turn these things off as well. It is NEVER a good idea to force people into something. Facebook learned the hard way (and still is) on that one. People who do not enjoy logging into their dashboards and seeing something completely different, permeated with ads and messages that they aren’t used to is a bad idea.
The other thing is, the new website overhaul… I like that you wanted a new look, but there are a few things here… for one, it is confusing since everyone was used to the old way of getting around, there should be a clearer way in which to navigate (not even sure what the remedy for this would be). Also, the post editor (when posting in for forum) … omg the huge text… the topic menu and title / content field text is ginormous! It looks like 18 point type or something, when it only needs to be maybe 12 or 14.
Just my honest opinion, do with it what you will. :slight_smile: Other than that, keep up the good work!
