Constructive ideas on improving the forum - Page 37

post #541 of 567

I guess my post might have been mistakenly deleted from the thread http://www.styleforum.net/t/175691/finally-an-official-baller-sneaker-thread-300-minimum

 

I spent some time writing that post. Could you at least send it back to me in a PM so my work is not lost at least. Thanks.

 

By the way what might have triggered deleting my post?

- I first mentioned a French brand of sneakers and you mistaken me of their agent?

- I mentioned a style blog of value and it is just a conflict of interest to post of any valuable resource which is outside of Styleforum?

 

Pls. enlighten me. I appreciate you.

Can a wiki post mod be added for each thread? It would be nice to have FAQs and info in there for the long threads where it might be quite difficult to dig out info that someone might need. It would also stop alot of repeat questions. Each wiki would be community editable. See link for example.

I'd suggest everyone to try and help improve B&S by contributing to this thread:

Ok, this is my first time posting on here so please be gentle. smile.gif I would like to see the forums split into different categories, shoes, shirts, pants, suits, etc. If I was looking for specific info, it would make it easier to find what I'm
looking for or browsing on a subject. I realize this might be a simplistic approach, but maybe a general category with sub categories would work. Just a thought.

I've always thought there should be a bespoke-only section, or just some kind of section for the true connoisseurs. I feel that the really useful information about tailoring and menswear is buried deep in a clutch of threads in CM, drowned out buy the thousands of threads along the lines of "How to dress for IB" and "Best suit for $1000". I think it would benefit everyone a lot if all of the expertise of bespoke clients were concentrated in one section or subsection.

hello hello, is this thing on?




Couple of questions/points

1. Would it make sense to make a new subforum specifically to group these ginormous affiliate store/site or brand discussion threads into one place instead of having them basically act like stickies by cloging up all the front page discussion? Could merge all of them regardless of their MC or SW&D origins.

2. I'm sick and tired of having PM discussions with prospective buyers and we get most of the way through a deal and suddenly radio silence. And I can see they're online and posting, but suddenly ignore my follow up messages. I'm dead serious here, I want to be able to leave them negative feedback and punish this sort of behaviour. I'm being nice by even asking for permission here to do it but if there's no response I'm very tempted to just go ahead and do it anyway. I have like 10-15 people who we're at the point of talking about what they want to buy, I've sent over my paypal info or made a place and time to meet, or they've given me contact information, etc and suddenly no response to emails, texts, calls, PM's, etc.

The Viglink links are obnoxious. It would be nice if they showed up in a different colour than real links.

Yes. The sheer number of affiliate and brand specific threads in MC really impacts the quality of the forum.

Wow, this thread is dead ... I hate to necro but it seems like the right place. Here's hoping I get some eyeballs...

This is minor but with the current layout a post that is at the top portion of a page - by that I mean that it vertically falls within the portion of the page that has the sidebar at the right - pics of medium size that are in double columns are forced into single columns. This is odd because posts below that point, that are within the same width boundaries, will display double columns correctly.

By med pics in double columns I mean:
img img
img img

where the tags are imported as 350x700

below are 2 screenshots with the situation highlighted (fyi: these were taken from my posts at this link which shows 100 posts per "page": http://www.styleforum.net/t/374077/the-best-of-b-s-someone-should-buy-this/2100_100#post_8193633 ) the first is where the images are forced into single columns the second is where they aren't (same formatting in each).

I know it's a small thing for me, but I see it affecting other posts - especially those by sellers and affiliates where formatting/display is important for them.

Just my .02, hope it helps!

Any chance we can get a separate classifieds forum for shoes? I find myself in the market for shoes far less often than apparel and think it would be great if the two forums were independent.

Try to select only the category you want when searching, removes a lot of what you don't want to see like shoes when looking for a suit, etc.

Is there an API for SF that would allow batch processing of content? For example, if I want to get all posts by specific members in specific threads, is there an API for that?

Each thread has an "search this thread" button at the top. Within that you have an advanced search feature which you can enter the SF name and the date range and it will bring up all posts by that user within that thread

Indeed, yes, and this is fine for casual browsing, but I was hoping for an API to process data in batch.

Would need to speak with someone who runs the site then.

Can you move this thread under the new Menswear Advice? If CM category is to survive it is going to need less advice and more examples of great tailored menswear.
