    I do remember when I visited this site for the first time a couple of years ago, I thought it is not a serious site about CAD (Due to fish) and it is sort of a decorated and hobby-oriented site. It took a while for me to understand how good is the site and change my illusion from fish to CAD.

    Now I really love the site and I respect it's founder and great contributors like Remark, Styke and many others (sorry if can't name here all) and I have learned a lot here. We are looking for its improvement and as the last sentence, now fish doesn't matter a lot and now it has become an indispensable part of it. I just wanted to tell my first impression.

    No Facebook / Twitter, please....

    The fish should stay, is it a registered trademark or similar? If not, it should be.

    A library or repository is a good idea, but could it be expanded into sub groups, say one for blocks, linetypes, hatch patterns, LISP routines, VBA projects, etc, etc.

    There seems to be problems at times with file sizes that can be uploaded, would it be possible to have something like an FTP area where large files can reside?

    I second all of Tyke's suggestions.
    Volume and repetition do not validate opinions forged in the absence of thought.

    organising our company's block library is a pain - how on earth do you organise the internet's block library?! ouch!
    great idea though
    nice to see an old suggestion being considered in the upgrade... i really would appreciate a little 'solved' button by threads. sometimes so many come up, all the same title, and the popular ones are just long wild goose chases. but will it be that only the OP can decide if it is solved?

    also, something else i mentioned a while back (you weren't keen then) is if the OP could be displayed at the top of each page in the thread. just think it helps focus the answers sometimes.

    but please be careful what you change... CadTutor ain't broke! but you did this much very well, i'm sure you'll make version 5 better yet. thanks very much.

    I like this idea. People using Tapatalk on their phones and tablets could view drawings then.

    For various reasons, the FAQ section didn't work out - mostly it was very difficult to manage and coordinate a group project. A wiki could work but I'm hoping that a new Tutorials section may be more fruitful where tutorials are contributed by individual members rather than by a managed group. Clearly, there will need to be some editorial control (I guess!) but people will be free to write from personal experience.

    You're right, it ain't broke but there are lots of utilities that could be useful to a community like this that are difficult to implement in the current forum. More than anything else, we need a forum that is up-to-date and ready for the future - I'm looking 5 years ahead. No one likes change but it often brings benefits.
    Tip: Please do not PM or email me with CAD questions - use the forums, you'll get an answer sooner.

    I agree and I think they might have been good ideas on paper but since then they have been taken over by the mindless masses and no longer represent their original ideas. IMHO as always.
    Please do not PM me with CAD questions. Post your question on the forum. Our users are the best out there and you'll get the best possible answer to your question.
