@petree – thanks man :) – just designing it in illustrator than i'll take it into glyphs probably
Yeah, I've been struggling on those haha. Even Making the S to that level was driving me mental, I'll post an update how I get on with it though but I've only spent like half a day or so on it so I'm pretty happy with it so far.
You make typefaces yourself?
I've got a condensed font I want to release soon, it's got a rounded and non rounded version and a few variants – condensed, super condensed, ultra condensed haha. I just don't know how to really go about getting it out there. I need to get on behance too haha

@jamesb nice one! what are you using to make the font?
I would stretch out the COGQS characters a little bit more. They don't feel as extended as the others. They could be made a little fatter too. Optically they're just a little bit light compare to the rest of the font.

If keeping something like the Folio section, perhaps order by those that contribute to the forum the most, or at least each time they comment it pushes to top ...etc (and no, not just so I'm at the top - I'm getting out the biz in the next year or so - but I think it stops someone simply adding their folio and then never contributing to the site again).
--> Though folio should definitely be a single listing, with potentially multiple images within that listing, but not each image shown separately in the main feed.
--> And seeing more of @JAMESB comments, maybe just have either folio or directory, where members can post up info/work on their business/services.
And maybe something highlighted to attract/promote more student/graduate users as @JAMESB suggested. Possibly a highlighted forum/section, where they can post work asking for feedback from "experienced professionals", but any overtly negative, non-constructive comments removed, possibly user that posted those warned or banned (or "time out).
(it is possible to communicate to someone that their work is not very good while being constructive, which is what should be aimed for to help students)
