'LSDers' Please read!
« on: June 01, 2015, 09:24:36 AM »
I want to open up a discussion here regarding the forum..... and if you donít want to post your thoughts here thatís fine, just send me a Private message.....

Iím curious to know what people like and dislike about the forum, what they would like to see or see changed etc....

Is the ĎFor Saleí section working for you?
Should you be able to edit in the 'For Sale' section?
Do we need to introduce anymore rules?
Is the Calendar working for you or your club?
Do we need any more sections added to the forum board?
Is everything easy to find?
Does the ĎRecent Postí box on the side show enough?

Is one Admin/Mod enough, am I keeping up with everything?



This isnít a shit stirring thread so if you have smart a*** comment, keep it to yourself as Iím not interested!!!

I dont think there is anythin on the forum that i dont like everythin seems to work sweet for everyone..

The for sale section is great and no you shouldn't be able to change your posts in that section.

Rules... hell no unless there is an issue that warrants one.

The calendar is good but everyone/club has to use it.

I think the Recent post box is f*&^%* awesome i use it all the time rarely use the "unread post"

Apart from that i enjoy using this forum compared to some others and its easy as f*** to get around and find what you need or want..

Hi Ozzy,
           I don't think the forum has any issues in my opinion, I just think everyone is using Facebook, Twitter etc a lot more.

Which is unfortunate as FB has a lot of random stuff going on where as the forum is more focused on our sport.. I know in our Club UHROC most of the members will check Facebook for updates and info about the club even before they check our own website..

Perhaps creating more awareness at club level would inspire more users. I know they would certainly get a lot more information on their chosen model.

regards

Thanks Johnsee headbang

Thanks for your input Paul thumbsup ....FB is one of the best and most certainly the biggest networking tool there is on the internet. It's not about getting more users or what they are using like FB, twitter etc....

I want to know what the members like or dislike about the forum, so I keep up with the times, I like change! and there is always room for improvement, I'm always looking at making things better and easier.... Been a bit slack on that lately!!

I did a thread like this ages ago and got some good feedback, thought it was time to do it again...

Is there a way you could have some sort of book mark feature . I've spent a lot of time looking back through old posts trying to find stuff that I've previously read. It would be great if there was a tab that you could go to where I could find book marked pages.  
Otherwise it's great.

I think its running perfect, maybe the only thing i can think of is maybe that you can change the titles in the for sale section from "For Sale" to "Sold" yourself. No real advantage but maybe it takes a little work off of you.

i reckon the forum goes alright, i don't use a whole bunch of the features like recent post and shit so i don't really know if they work.

As for editing in the 'For Sale' section i think its a good idea for price drops and when it sold etc.

The rules, idgaf as i don't break them.

i dunno who you'd consider adding as another mod if you did? i nominate ambro *rofl*

Thanks guys.... It would be good if people could change the Prefix themselfs but i can't change that without giving the option to edit anything in the Ad.... Im not against editing the Ads etc.

I dont think it should be possible to edit the post, because theres a problem coming with it, if someone was to sell something, someone buys it, and its not what it was advertised, he complains, but in the meantime the seller edits his post to show exactly what the buyer got. And then the buyer has no proof that he was scammed.

I agree with this, I was actually taken for a ride on another forum once when I bought something. I know I have forgotten a couple of thngs in an add before and it is only a p.m. to Steve to sort it out and he always does thumbsup

You are doing a great job Steve.
Not much to say really.
The ability to edit for sale prefixes would take some work off you. On another forum I modded on it ran smoothly and the edit history is always available to the mods anyway, but simple rules such as leaving price and photos up made it run pretty smoothly.
Keep up the great work mate, appreciate all you do.

I don't think you need to edit the for sale ads... If changes need to be made the seller can just add a post below stating price drops or change of info. That way the original ad stays and there is no ambiguity...

Thanks for the feedback guys, it's appreciated....

I think I have found a good Bookmarking mod, I just need to install and hope it works. If successful I'll let you all know and how to use it etc.

    I still go through the threads each day and I don't think there needs to be any changes. The modding from our end is under control, it's really up to you whether or not it's becoming time consuming.

I don't feel the need for a Moderator to help out, just wasn't sure if everyone was happy with what gets done and in a timely manner...

Seems that everyone is happy though so that's good

I appreciate the feedback guys, thanks heaps.....

Hey Tommy, thanks mate......

I can't do anything with Tapatalk but I do know they have been working on the 'Like' function for a while now.... The only problem is their 'like' button etc won't be the same as the one I use here, well not unless they can pull some sort of magic.

I'm keeping an eye on it though Tommy
