The current YoCo platform is a classic example of trying to reinvent the wheel. Why not just set up a forum on an existing social media platform that ordinary Singaporeans use and are familiar with? We could have a subreddit if you want to capture as many voices as possible (but this would probably require serious moderation). Or a Facebook group - could be open, closed, or invite-only, depending on NYC KPIs.

Personally can envision Reddit x Facebook x phpBB Forum for the best user experience - that is - posts index page of card/compact view + Facebook comments format + block-quoting (hot button). The only thing that's new and useful here is probably "Weekly Official Response" so pretty much just copy existing axle, spoke and tyre, Including my suggestions to pin (position:fixed) the top and right parts (like FB and Reddit do) and we are good.

 If YoCo.sg insisted to use this platform instead of other existing platforms, please at least public to read/view without creating an account when it launches officially. It can attract more young people to join and engage in the conversation.  Thank you.

First and foremost, why limit participation to age 35 and below?

And too much white spaces, so I would suggest to minimally size topic title, tags, author and timestamp into one frame, user activity (call it "My Comments" and "My Replies") merged into "Topic Features" navigation bar as filter switches; navigation bar fixed in place to the top while "Official Weekly Response" and "Here's What I Think" input box fixed in place to the right after scrolling past the topic <div>; input box can be expanded into modal overlay.

Also, I don't see the need for "Introduction" and "References" toggle.

Why not adopt Facebook comment style? Less white spaces.

Edit and Delete functions are essential, for now I'll just ignore my errors.

Topic index page is rather disorientating. This is where Reddit's minimalist style should be adopted, ordered (bumped) by new activity recency, marked with "new comments" and "new official response" indicators.

I believe there's a bug with "Show more" appearing even when there's no more text to show. Also, I suggest removing the extra padding between the shown text and "Show more", then add ellipses (...) so as to make it not look like an end of text. Basically follow Facebook style.

My question is how are people to know this forum even exists?
