Your feedback on the tweaked OST community platform

Welcome to the slightly tweaked OST community site’s landing page. We’ve made it easier for you to navigate our platform, find the information and resources you need, and engage with other members on the community.

 

Some of the changes we’ve made:

 

  • We’ve updated the ‘Latest activity’ list to show all posts and replies. It also shows a few lines of the content so that users can immediately see what it’s about
  • We’ve replaced ‘New solutions’ with ‘Recent posts’ to make it easier for you to find the latest content.
  • We’ve changed the view to a 3-column format to make the posts more compact and easier to read.We’ve added the ‘Recent posts’ list to the right margin so that users can see what else has been posted and can switch to those posts without having to navigate back to the ‘Talk’ landing page.

 

We want to ensure your experience of the OST community is beneficial so let us know what you think of the upgrade. You can leave your feedback in the comments section below as well as any suggestions you may have on how we can make this platform work for you. Alternatively you can email us: securities@standardbank.co.za

Re: Your feedback on the tweaked OST community platform

Dineo,

 

The new platform is atrocious. It's hard to find anything. The linear blog format is not suited to a discussion. This looks more like a place to dump out random ideas than actually get a discussion going. The views vs replies columns makes that quite clear. The old platform - quiet as it was - was easier to navigate and post on. This new flashy platform looks more suited for Facebook teens than traders.
