I suggest you...

        I think Designers and Contestant Holders alike, having forums would benefit and a place for discussions. Having been involved with Forums both as an administrator and user, most important is members follow guidelines as set forth by 99Designs.

        Too often, people (and not intentional) may use the forum as an outlet for complaints, both designers and contest holders. 99Designs has good support and methods to help with problems. People should, however, feel free to discuss problems on from all people involved in a contest and could only help people. I would definitely participate and look forward to the development of a community.

        As a newcomer to the site, I was quite surprised there was no place to discuss such a rich and varied service. I'd like to be able to talk to other designers, help out with discussion of how to use tools, current trends and design in general and would bet a lot of others would want to be part of that community too. While we are all in competition together, helping others with advice would help raise the quality of work submitted and benefit everyone in the long run.

        *Update - we are no longer doing these chats but you can find us on facebook almost everyday.

        ____________

        Still thinking about a forum - I believe we will launch one.

        In the meantime we have launched a designer chat room here:
        https://99designs.campfirenow.com/0f749

        It is open all the time and I will be in there every Tuesday and Thursday to answer questions at 10:30 am PT.

        Cheers,
        Jason

        Be careful with this designer http://99designs.com/users/566322
        If 1 contest with him, he has a lot of cheating, by way of stealing the entry belongs to other designers, and upload at flicker.com, and you will be accused of having stolen from flicker.com.
        And this is his account @ http://www.flickr.com/photos/64333820@N08/
        It has a lot of designers who cheated.
        Also, please see the date of the upload from 99designs and flicker.
        Take care guys..
        Thanks you..

        ...ok, I would love to see the forum is back on 99Designs, just like the old time where we can discuss everything inside the 99Designs itself not through other services or blog, because we cannot posting on 99Designs blog if we have something to discuss in a rush .. right?

        I think we don't need a big forum.
        There would be a lot of chatting, offtopic and trolling, and maybe a few useful topics.
        I suggest a small forum, strictly moderated with only really relevant topics.

        The Forum

        We are still trying to decide how a forum will fit into 99designs beyond the user voice forum which you are reading now and our blog.

        I know that this thread contains some ideas but I'd like to pt it out there again for people to comment on:

        What are your top three reasons for wanting a forum?

        How would it be valuable to you as a designer in the 99designs community?

        Cheers,
        Jason
