Are there any plans to provide an alternate UI for the forums?
Personally I enjoy Google+ because of the UI as well as the integration with other communities, tools, and resources.
For me being on G+ is more in alignment with personally “having everything under one roof”
Not to mention I have been in the Google Community since the migration from Glassboard.
If the forums had features akin to Google+ then I would be more apt to spend more time over here. However, I’m not sure i can forsee a future where things like Slack Channels and Google+ are no longer used.
Different tools for different uses.
