Oh, and for gawd's sake please make it mandatory that people who are working for companies and therefore involved in promoting them must must admit that in some way when posting about products they're involved with, either in the text body, or permanently have that indicated in their sig, avatar, or whatever.


This all sounds like a good idea. :clap:

Again, something like that can be set up with modern boards.

The OP can only repost after someone else has posted ? So "hey buddy can you post in my thread to bump it please?" will never happen ? If people are misbehaving enough to warrant changes now then I imagine they will contiune to misbehave in other ways as well......

Especially considering the flood of "sale" threads from companies, while others simply want to get their private stuff sold.
Also, have you seen how many pinned threads we have by now?


I'm not opposed to marketplace subforums but I've not seen enough problems to make bumping that big of a deal. Pinned threads are the fault of the forum admins not the members right ?

I honestly never had a problem with how it was before.

Some overeager devs or sellers every now and then, but overall I found it easy to deal with:
- If I look for something specific, I can use the search.
- If I just look around to see what's up, I prefer not having to go to several subforums since currently I might stumble upon something interesting I didn't look for.
- I don't see the need for the 48 hour limit. 24 hours seems long enough for me to dampen the overeagers without making it too slow to get noticed or find things.
- Since I personally found most of my sales items in the Posts-Ticker on the right by more or less accident, I wouldn't remove the sales stuff from there.

Conclusion: just leave it as it is ;-)

Invest the free time in a dark Forum theme instead so my eyes can heal.

Cheers,

Tom

Quoting Ben from the other thread:
Ben (KVR) wrote:I'm leaning towards a Market Place category (below the Main Forums and above the Off Topic forums), rather than subforums now.

Buy & Sell (All Private Sales ONLY)
Product Announcements, Sales & Promotions (All Commercial Soundware, Plugins & Apps, incl. Group Buys)
Competitions, Contests & Giveaways
Services For Sale
Member Music Releases (For Sale)

The main forums (instruments, effects, etc.) were originally intended to be for users to discuss plug-ins, not as places for sales pitches, so this would move sales topics to their own forum.

*sigh* Always questioning everything.
Look - of course this system can be "evaded" - but look at the market place section. Most of the time, the comments "here it's being avialable cheaper" is pretty rare, same with the "you're not allowed to sell it".

It can work, and it actually does work on GS. Why shouldn't it on KVR?

Pinned threads make sense. Only the ammount is a bit much. Then again, ton if important info in there that would otherwise vanish in the auto truncation system.

THis is why I wrote to have a "root" folder with all rules and pinned stuff, and the rest should be in subfolders.

For now I've decided to go for the simple option. I've added the oft-requested Soundware forum, which is intended to be used for all discussion about and announcements for soundware.

The Instruments and MP forums should hopefully then revert back to what it they were originally intended for - discussion about instrument apps and plug-ins / private sales and periodic special offers (not product announcements and intro offers)

i like the idea of good clear filtering system so you can have as little or as much on your feed as possible, more power to filtering and everyone gets to setup how they like things

I like the filer/mother forum idea also. Sub-folders are OK, but I'd rather have a tagging system.
