This does make sense.
Overall, I’d say the recent changes to BigFix.Me are an improvement, but I do want to bring up something that was there before that I didn’t like.
Most of the content towards the top of the page in the right hand area are not useful for repeat visitors. Maybe it would be fine to show users that are not logged in, but as a frequent user of the site, it takes up way too much space with very little value.
To me, the most useful areas of the new site are
Recent Content and
Latest users activity, while the areas marked with the Red X are not useful to me. I can see the reason for the
BigFixMeSync plugin for IEM and
Forensic Activities with BigFix! parts, but they are just in the way for me. They could be moved down to be lower in the page than the other items, or only show up if there is no user logged in.
I feel like the
Top Community Users section could be expanded to show the top 10 users instead of only 5.
Visitor Statistics is kind of cool. For some reason I find it interesting and useful, but I also don’t think it hurts anything to have it be pushed down the page by a larger
Top Community Users section.
I like the ideas of the
Most Popular and
Most Downloaded. The
Highest Rated would also make sense. I do wish they would have the option to see more than the top 10 in these categories though, perhaps by hitting a
next button or something.
