Ok guys. Let's make some changes around here

The landing pages have been up for a good while now. Long enough to get used to or confirm that you hate them.

I ask that without bashing you guys let me know what you want merged to where. Meaning shrimping and crabbing gone and

In reports about shrimping and crabbing just go to reg reports section.

Need a crew seems like it should stay?

Business exchange. I am surprised that is not used more. You can list all your phone numbers and links and pictures you want about your business there

Let me know what I can go to management with for changes.

Not going to make every single person happy but I will surly try.

I will stick this for a few days
Thanks

    Not many people seem to visit the business exchange, it seems people looking to have work done want up to date references from locals. Can t say I blame them as some businesses deteriorate over time, espeacially when times get hard but I would say leave it up and be a bit forgiving with general threads.

    Wade has a good point there. Honestly, people don't want to browse through 15 different sections. It's so much easier to just have everything in two places, fishing reports, and the rest of it.

    I think the shrimping and crabbing reports should go into the fishing report section. I rarely land on the landing pages so I don't really care if you keep them or not but it seems thay are just and excuse to add more ads.

    Not a excuse for more ads just a attempt to unclog things. We tried something that didn't work and now we want to fix it..

    Your voice and opinion is very important to us and we want it the way you want it so keep on speaking up. This is your playground so tell me how you want it and let's make some changes

    How about the need a crew page?

    I mean, break it down into three forums. Fishing, general, and one...maybe two other categories. Most people are just going to general, with I'm sure a certain percentage of them going to the reports. I'm sure checking what gets the clicks will make it pretty easy to eliminate where people are not going.

    Three (3) categories. General, Fishing, Need a Crew or Available Angler. If you can stick the latter as a sticky on top of the General page, that would work as well. That latter category should be both Need Crew and Available Angler together. My two cents.

    Dave, Why did they jump to so many forums for each section to begin with? Also, I don't understand why there's the need to organize posts. Why not drive everyone to the same place, making it easy to administer, and giving people the ability to see everything in one place?

    All I ever use is General and Fishing Reports, but have no problem with the way it is currently, because if I don't need it I don't use it. I've never been in Member Businesses but it doesn't bother me that it's there.

    I do think you should scratch shrimping and crabbing though.

    I'll step in on this one. It was an idea to make locating certain post a bit easier to find. Unfortunately it was not seen as very popular, so that problem is now being addressed.

    In the pass many members complained having to sift thru one section to find Fishing Reports, thus the Reports section was created. One thing you must remember, there is NO perfect Forum. What one of you wants, the other does not. At this point we are just trying to pare down the sub forums for a start.

    I think 3 categories would be fine. General, Fishing, Available. That is the three I generally look at. I do kind of like the business one to locate a local business but have yet to need any services lately.
  • FlatheadfishermanFlatheadfisherman Posts: 799 Officer
    I find myself only using the General and Fishing reports also.
  • Afishy1Afishy1 Posts: 675 Officer
    Two sections like before. It wasnt broke then. Why have all the other stuff. General section and fishing reports section is all that is needed - without over-moderation.

    ok its starting to look like we will go to the general and the reports..

    lets do a yes or no to

    business exchange

    need a crew/ride

    a few people have addressed them but not too many..

    i can make a sticky for the business in the general section no problem..i think that is the best idea

    the crew page has a good bit of activity on it but you guys need to decide if it go's or stays..i am not too keen

    on making it a sticky because we are going to have too many stickies very soon..

    1.General - with business sticky. Single post WIKI sorted by type or name, 1 line each name, number and/or website, address.
    2.Reports - with "need a ride/crew" sticky. Lock each post preventing replies, but still allow it to be edited or deleted by original poster

    3.Local for sale for those that want to only sell locally on the forum or maybe a shortcut to the forums classifieds if already listed there. No commercial, no links, no auctions.

    But please go back to the regular forum template so from the master home page you can scan the latest threads in each subsection. This is the only forum of this format I have ever visited and it suuuuucks.. it's such a hassle & I can almost promise threads get less views because of it
