Forum > Announcements > Forum moving to Zidisha website
Starting this week, the Forum will be moving to within the Zidisha website: www.zidisha.org/forums.
We believe the new forum will better serve the community, for several reasons:
Since old forum is a third-party software, we cannot modify its source code or fix bugs in it. The new forum is built by our team, and we can design and improve its functionality to meet the needs of our members.
The old forum had a high ratio of spam to legitimate content, such that we had to moderate all content before it could be displayed. This slowed down conversations.
The new forum will be open only to borrowers and lenders who have made loans, making it less likely to be a target for spam. (In the new forum, moderation is lifted once users reach a threshold of approved posts.)
A separate registration will no longer be needed for the new forum.
Comments are linked automatically to authors' Zidisha profile pages, allowing for better identification.
Automated translations are included with forum comments posted by borrowers in non-anglophone countries, and human volunteer translations are supported, facilitating interaction across language barriers.
We will continue to host the old forum, but have disabled the creation of new threads. We invite you to use the new forum to open new discussions.
Feedback on the new forum is welcome. Please feel free to post comments and suggestions for improvement here.

"The new forum will be open only to borrowers and lenders who have made loans, making it less likely to be a target for spam. (In the new forum, moderation is lifted once users reach a threshold of approved posts.)"
This sounds good, particularly this paragraph.
Thanks to everyone who's posted in this thread.
Wendy, I agree, and thankfully all volunteers can now moderate posts in the forum, so (whilst waiting to get to the above-mentioned threshold) posts will now appear much quicker than previously.
Also, this new forum is still a work in progress and will improve with time.
Talking of which, sorry about any duplicate posts at the moment. I've reported it to our Technical Team!
Thank you Dave and your team for the wonderful jobs you all are doing. God bless Zidisha. Long live Zidisha
Well done Zidisha. Its a good message to us all
nice move. Keep it up
Great.God bless Zidisha .God bless all the members
I love this
A couple of comments - when you get to the bottom of the thread, there is no longer an option to go back to the forum without scrolling all the way back to the top of the page, which is awkward when it's a long thread. Also, new threads are no longer highlighted in bold, which made it easier to see if there was a new one - you just get the total number of messages now.
Yes truly ZIDISHA is advancing. Long live ZIDISHA and Long live ZIDISHA Family.
I've passed those suggestions on to Julia.
This is a good move but needs some improvement for better service.
I agree, Charles.
This new forum is still in progress, so hopefully it will keep improving further.
Zidisha is steady

This a very nice ideal,keep it up.
A very big wow! This is really great. Keep it up Zidisha!
Hi, I no longer get the message to reuse the money if a loan has not been paid. Has this been discontinued or there are no longer funds? Thanks
Hallo lenders, Please help to see the loan application I have submitted. I hope the lenders are kind enough to fund up to 100% of my loan. Thank you
This would really ease and solve issues that arise in a faster and quicker way. Well done Zidisha
I like the new feature 'new discussion'. This feature help us know the new post.
Can the IT team make the forum layout base on the date when it posted? When someone answering/ post a comment on the thread, that thread will going up in the first page. Can the thread still in their place base on the day it posted even when there are new comment in that thread just like the old forum. I think it will help other Volunteer answering the forum.
We didn't get email confirmation when the thread we made got answer, that made us check the forum everyday to know is there an answer yet.
Thank you zidisha, it really Nice.we do really appreciate what zidisha is up to.
God bless zidisha family. Am proud to be part of this family.
