    The idea is to have the thread for every freelance platform (that people from this forum actually use) and share their experiences, questions, problems etc with other people.
    I know there are 'threads' with every single platform but I can't post a comment there, I just can click on the platform's logo

    I actually thing this is a great idea. For example I had some experiences the put me off from Fiverr, and it felt natural for me to maybe start a thread to post about it under the "Fiverr" platform section. I was disappointed there wasn't the option to participate there.

    I realize I could technically go create a thread about it in the "community chat" area, but it doesn't really feel like it belongs there. Like the topic belongs someplace where people are already expecting to read stuff regarding Fiverr. Bottom line is I heartily second this suggestion. :)

    I know what you're saying, it was considered during development. The last thing we want is you feeling disappointed, please allow me to explain.

    Each section has a description. The Freelance Platforms section for example, has a description that reads: "Widely recognized freelance platforms. (sign up info)". It is just that, an area that provides sign-up info for those platforms.

    Another way that might help with adjusting to the layout is remembering that all discussions between freelancers, and that may be of benefit to the freelance community, live in the Freelance Community Chat area. All non-freelance discussions live in the Off-Topic area.

    Members can count on the fact that if a freelance topic exists, it will be in one forum, Freelance Community Chat. If it does not exist, creating it is encouraged.

    It took me a few minutes to figure it out, then it makes all the sense. Especially because if it wasn't set up like that then platform threads would be strung all over the place. Like what if there was a news story about so and so, would it go in a designated section or the freelance community chat? I think its better to have it al in one spot.

    Yes this was a factor.
