Upcoming forum changes

Recently, we had a site-wide survey and discussion thread concerning suggested forum changes:


Cloudy Nights has grown exponentially over the years. We try our best to tailor the site based on the needs and suggestions of the members. With this in mind, there are two areas we could address to improve the site for you – easier navigation (for example, find information regarding the Autostar or Nexstar systems in a single forum rather than two) and the ability to expand in new directions further down the road. Both can be accomplished by combining a few forums to make room for expansion and/or re-accessing specific forum directives.

We’ve generated a list of suggested forum changes in Observing, Telescope Specific Forums, and the Specialty Forums. To help us serve you better, we ask that you take a few moments to complete the survey below and to share your thoughts and suggestions regarding what changes in the forum structure, if any, you’d like to occur.

The polls are now closed and the membership has spoken. Soon you'll see several forums combined and given new titles. The existing threads in each forum will remain intact in their respective combined forums.

Forums to be combined:

  • “NEO” and “Planetary and Solar System Observing” - combined into "Solar System Observing"
  • “Celestron NexStar” and “NexStar GPS / CPC Telescopes” - combined into "Celestron"
  • “Meade ACF/RCX / LX / GPS” and “Meade ETX” - combined into "Meade"
  • “Arizona Science and Astronomy Expo” and “NEAF and NEAIC” – combined into "Astronomy Shows & Conferences"
  • “AstroArt”, “AstroWebsites” and “Stellar Media” – combined into "Astro Art, Websites & Media"

    As voted, we also changed the name of the "Solar" observing forum to "Solar Observing and Images."

    Thank you to all the members that participated in the survey.

    Please be aware that I plan to do these forum consolidations some time in the next 24 hours.
