Some sensible changes to the site this morning; I like it.
I think it’s a big improvement that we now have a proper place for discussion of the markets, interviewing, etc other than the “CFA General” forum where this discussion previously ended up.
Good choice of new name “Water Cooler”; kudos to whoever thought of that. I also think that it was a clever idea to put “Water Cooler” at the top of the forums list rather than the bottom, for lazy people that post in the first forum they see.
Suggestion for one more possible forum: How about one for MBAs & Business Schools? Seems like a legit topic for analysts, and this discussion doesn’t really have a proper home on AF currently.
One more suggestion (I know I’ve said it before): this view http://www.analystforum.com/forum would be even better if there was a 1-line summary for each forum, showing the most recent topic of discussion in that forum. Might help to keep discussion active in the less-popular subforums.
