Constructive ideas on improving the forum - Page 23

post #331 of 546
I don't know if this has been talked about, but would it be possible to make a separate B/S for the power sellers?

I ask because when I am shopping, I do check the mega threads once, but I do not need to look through them daily. Since they are bumped every day, they take up the space the smaller listings could use, the ones that change often. I can still check on the power seller stuff (and I do, I have bought several items from the "power sellers" )

On the selling side... I listed an Isaia SC last week. I had one comment right away, but the thread was soon moved to the second page by the bump-per-day crowd, which is fine. But I had almost no looks once it was bumped off. Within 30 minutes of bumping the thread one week later, I had two offers. Sure, it would have sold sooner had I bought the selling package, but it is not worth it when I list one item per month on average.

I still love that we can sell stuff here, I appreciate the work SF does! But I know my buying and selling experience would be much better if we didn't cater so much to the "mega threads" and "power sellers."

I am of course biased since I like buying from the igent who is cleaning out his closet, or selling an item he no longer wears. But isn't that why most of us are in the B/S?


Regardless of the changes, I still love SF!

This is coming. Galleries will be created immediately from the images in each thread upon posting, with an opt out option available. This will allow members and casual readers alike to easily browse through images from different threads. I looked at the beta version, and well, it looks pretty cool.

One reason we opted to work with the Huddler instead of some other, perhaps larger outfit, is precisely for the reason that they are a fairly young company, but with some good ideas, and the ability and willingness to change. Getting in at the ground floor as one of their bigger sites has allowed us to help steer priorities in a way we would not have been able to at a big company.

This has been posted before but I'd like to add something else.
1. When a blocked person posts, make it so you can't see it in the preview
2. The link that says "This post is blocked" -- can that be expanded to include the person's name? There may be times I want to see what says but not , and this would help facilitate that. I don't think it's that hard an addition, since it already parses the whole thread for blocked posts -- it would really just require adding the username from the post's DB entry.

is it possible to put site stats back on the main page at the bottom or something?

I don't know what this involves but this forum behaves poorly when viewed with Tapatalk. I know others use it too so can it please be updated/fixed? For example, photos don't show up or only some do. Also, quoting is messed up.

i have come to learn its a tapatalk issue not a forum issue. if its acting wonky you have to uninstall and re install, and not all forum features are supported by tapatalk.

Can we initiate some sort of follow up feedback for B&S? Similar to how Amazon sends you an email to review your item after you've bought it. This way, sellers wouldn't have to hound their buyers for feedback.

I think it would be nice if the premium seller banner was at the top of every B&S page. It's damn near impossible to find... It's a great service, though!

What phone are you using so I know if our experiences match. I would like to think that embedded pictures and quoting are basic enough features that tapatalk probably supports them.

You'd think so foo.gif

Tapatalk does not support either though, nor PMs. Our busy bees are working on a native platform for iOS and Android.

The poll system... how it used to be... where you could see how dudes voted... that would be cool to bring back.

Also, double demerits for avatar thieves, please.

My posts are still (edit: were) subject to moderator review - I think that is fine, but if they could be put in order as if they were posted at the time of the approval, then the odds of people actually seeing them would go up. 

 

I kept waiting for my posts to appear, then realized that they had appeared, 30 posts back or so.

That is a great idea. Unfortunately, it's not the way the system is coded right now. I'll suggest it, but it's not going to be a priority. We'll try to be more ontop of approving posts.

Not sure why I can't start a new thread here or find any moderators contacts... but someone may want to block the account of forum member yemistar - one of those loser nigerian scammers who's been emailing me (from mattcodd505@gmail.com) non-stop about a watch for his grandson in Nigeria:

 

 

Hello,
I have messaged pay-pal at onlinesaveaccess@usa.com, they told me that they have your money with them and that they have sent you e-mails. please kindly reach them on their email so that you could confirm the money i sent to you then help me ship out the parcel to him today.Waiting to read from you soon...Thanks in advance,
Regards,

 

 

LOL

He contacted me through this forum.

What a maroon.
