Im sorry, did i miss the memo? - Page 3  

post #31 of 56
Thread Starter 
my point is not to bring up another us vs them thing. im just noting some changes and was just wondering what all the pinned is all about and how you get it up there that was all thank you.

As other posters have pointed out, to me, "pinned" just says "too unreasonably priced to get bumped on it's own merit".

I'm fully capable of ignoring "pinned" threads and refuse to click on them.

Nop
The pinned threads right now are the best deals on this page. The prices are more than reasonable they are steals.

The threads currently pinned have excellent stuff at very reasonable prices.

But looking at them again and again is irritating.

this is just a narrow-minded way of thinking.

no one is saying you are incapable of making your own in addition.

In a word, BS. Ok, in an acronym. The stuff in those threads represent good deals, it's just that you don't buy clothes that are that high-end. It's easy to skip over the pinned threads right now because there's a big 'Pinned' before each one of them. Of course the sellers who pin threads don't want people skipping over them. The 'Pinned' will disappear shortly. All of this is fine, but can we not have more threads on the first page, or does that tend to undermine the value of pinning?

i don't get involved in these types of threads because of the rampant conflicts of interest (not the least being mine), but i figure i can at least contribute a factual answer to a question -

most people might already know this, but in case there is someone out there who doesn't, you can go to "User CP" (top left banner link on the forum frame) and "Edit Options" and change the threads per page to as much as 40 perhaps the admin team is capable of making options that display even more, who knows?

I can't help but think that The"sold bumps" thread and all the genius there had at least something to do with this.

Edit:felt I should say that although this isn't a bad change for me personally (I think the $ is very reasonable), I really feel for the casual seller who has a couple items to list here and there from personal acquisitions. (unless that has been taken onto consideration and is accounted for)

+1,000

The idea is that the reader would not be able to distinguish between pinned and unpinned threads, since having readers easily skip pinned threads would accomplish the opposite of what we want to achieve.

I think this would annoy me a lot and frustrate many buyers, most of whom would continue using the site as normal but maybe with a suspicion that the place is becoming "commercialized". Stealth pinning seems almost Orwellian to me and I don't think this would be a good thing. Just my .02 (because I really like SF).

I would imagine that people selling lower-cost items (like pocket squares and socks and neckties) would never be able to pin their threads because they don't even clear $50 in profit per thread... wonder if there's going to be an increase in the amount of bumping ("legal", "illegal" and "grey-area") now that there's even less real estate on the front page due to the increase in the number of big-timers' pinned threads?

that's "posts per page" inside a thread, rather than threads on forum page, i believe

craps, you're right. i could have sworn you could control both posts per page and threads on forum page with that option, but i guess not. my apologies for the misinformation

It would be interesting if furo and hroi share the increase in enquiries and sales subsequent to the pinning of their threads.

Transparency is best -- don't play games with your members. It's in bad faith.
post #45 of 56
It will be transparent. The options will be very clearly laid out, for all to see and choose from or decline. It's not a trick. It's a service to get more viewers for those sellers who pay for the additional service

And yes, we will probably increase the number of threads per page. We want to make the system more usable for all, while adding a number of paid features and services that will benefit those who decide to paid for those services. There is a thread on this in the general B&S section.
