Forum Structure Changes

02 July 2018 - 01:13 AM

Dear Wetpixel community,

 

Those of you logging on this morning will notice some changes in the forum structure.

 

We decided to rationalize the number of forums. The growth of social media, despite its shortcomings as as a venue for finding advice, has somewhat reduced the number of posts that are being made here, so it makes sense to reduce forums that have been used less.

 

Suffice to say that (hopefully) no posts have been removed and the search function still works to find existing ones. The goal is maintain the the amazing amount of information and support available, without the somewhat bloated structure.

 

Please have a look around the new structure, and give us any appropriate feedback.

 

Thank you!

 

Adam


Editing a Classified Post

04 April 2018 - 02:12 AM

Dear Wetpixel community,

 

I am getting a lot of PM and posts about editing and/or deletingFor Sale posts.

 

The short answer is that you cannot! The forum will allow you to edit your post for a short while after posting but once this time has passed, posts are permanent.

 

If you wish to make changes to your listing, mark the items as sold or no longer available, please add a post to your topic. This also has the effect of "bumping" your topic back up in the forum.

 

The best way to explain the reason for this is that the posts you make in any forum are effectively conversations with other community members. In much the same way as you cannot "undo" a verbal conversation, if you remove a part of a conversation from the forum, the thread potentially makes no sense.

 

Posts also form a historical reference of what our community has been doing!

Changes to Classifieds Forum-please read!

04 April 2018 - 02:01 AM

Dear Wetpixel community,

 

I am trying out a new policy for posts in the Classifieds forum.

 

It now requires a minimum of three posts (in any of the other forums) before members can post for sale ads or respond to posts in the forum.

 

There are two reasons for this:

 

1. Wetpixel is a vibrant community of individuals that willing and selflessly share their experiences and knowledge. The Classifieds section is there for members of our community to recycle their used gear.

 

We welcome new members to our community but we do not want to become simply a cheap way for people to sell used gear.

 

2. Practically, Wetpixel is a very safe way to buy and sell, with thousands of mutually beneficial transactions. However, like all online communities, there are those that seek to defraud people via fraudulent transactions.

 

Hopefully, requiring a number of posts prior to allowing interactions on the Classifieds forum will increase the security of transactions, and allow buyers/sellers to formulate better opinions about their prospective buyers/sellers.

 

I am relatively open minded about this new policy and will assess it and revise as appropriate. Please feel free to add any opinions to this thread too.
