Exhange of experiences: Ask to members to help you...

Post by Niko on May 19th 2012, 1:50 pm

Hello members,

Today I would like to open a topic in the Forum discussion section to ask to the Forumotion members some suggestions/ideas for my forum... As a quick review from all the members Wink
But then I thought: And If this is not legal on that section (I can't do it)....

So I decided to propose a little update for this forum; I explain you with an example:
This could be the section:

I, Niko, open a topic and I write:
Hello,

I'm niko, the manager of [...],
Can you, members, tell me some suggestions/ideas for my forum? I know there is something wrong, but i need your help... Mr. Green
Thanks

Then, members reply to my topic with their ideas Very Happy This kind of section is opened on the PRO forums of Forumactif, Foroactivo, Forumattivo, Forumgratuit, etc... But Forumotion hasn't got it Laughing
So I want to suggest this stuff...

What Do you thin? Vote in the Poll bye
edit: Or if you don't want we can decide to ask and start a forum for Forumotion (as the other ones)

If I've understood you correctly, this is basically a forum where members can ask for advice on how to improve their forum?

So your suggesting a room where you can seek advice, and 'wisdom' before you enact on a change?

I could see this being a good thing, if so Smile

Sorry but I vote "No". This seems self-serving and would be used to disguise a posters true intentions which might be to promote there forum and get people to view it.

I voted no for this, it would be another form of exposing/advertising a forum and it would be another forum to be moderated heavily, besides there are promotion forums out there for this and it's not really necessarily needed on the support forum since we already have the review section for a reviewer's opinion/analysis to improve your forums, you can even request it repeatedly with time gaps(on the review rules).

Also, it doesn't mean that when other support forums have this, it would be necessary on the English support forum, other support forums doesn't have review section. fufufu

The thing is does it have to be moderated heavily?

I mean I more than agree it could be grounds for exposing/advertising. The thing is, people will do that throughout the forums. I think the if you over moderate a forum it becomes less enjoyable.

I would like to see this section because I would like to here what other members thought of some of the new add ons from forumotion or 3rd parties that get added. It would also be a chance to learn from other forums mistakes as well.

This could also be a part of the idea to loosen up on the moderation, perhaps this could be a more relaxed atmosphere compared to the rest of the forums.

In this case I vote yes!

Hi!

I'm going to vote for NO, just because a forum is too much. Why don't you create a topic to General Discussions, that would be great! But, I think the better topic would be: http://help.forumotion.com/t278-topic-to-express-your-heartfelt-thanks because there you can write what do you want. Wink

Hmm, on the one hand, that would be nice if the members can help each other, so it would begin a better "relation" inside the members, on the other hand there's the argument of runnawayhorses ...
So, but I don't want to be a drag, so I voted Yes!

Another section to watch and control equals more work for staff and I don't think they want another section to watch as they already have a fair amount of work now. If you want feedback, why don't you ask that on your forum and or use the review section? The review section is pretty much this idea from the start when I ran this few years ago. Why have two things that are doing the same things, when you can just have one? Pointless to be honest.

Mario, I see it as an opportunity to allow members to discuss the pros & cons of something, and see how people would act to something.
Sort of like a discussion section, but for forumotion.

If there's an issue of staff, simply hire more. Wink

Then discuss it within the review after the review has been written and posted. But then again, members don't comment on the review when its finished anyways.

After discussing this with Sanket, we decided to refuse this suggestion.

First of all, we see that this will be another form of advertising/exposing a forum which we don't want to happen, also, the review section is already filling the same purpose, which is to improve your forums. Also, there are a lot of promotion forums that may be able to help with your forums or has the same forum that you're suggesting, last thing is you can ask your members for suggestions since they will be the one staying on your forums and they can provide lot more ideas to improve your forums.

Since I already stated the reasons why we're not accepting this => Suggestion refused & Topic Locked
