View Full Version : How Can The Scaffolders Forum Improve?



SF Admin
24th February 2010, 11:30 AM
Since the forum was launched in September 2009, we have had a phenomenal response with nearly 600 scaffolders signing up and over 3000 posts being made.

The forum was designed and created by me and at the time I did the best that I could with the limited industry knowledge that I have.

However now I would love to hear your suggestions on how the forum could be made even better.


What works well and what doesn't?
What new features would you like?
Would you like some new sections, or are there too many?

Once you have all made your suggestions, I will create a poll for you to vote whether or not the suggestions should be implemented.

All suggestions will be taken into consideration and are appreciated!

Best Regards

I would echo scaff's comments

Great Site, Great Content.

Perhaps the foreign scaff section could be rolled into one as it doesnt seem to be used too often?

In regard to features: I would like the Forum to provide me with an 18 year old female nubile blond with a very broad mind!!??? :love:

But I dont suppose your budget can stretch to that eh?? :sad:

Hi SF admin

How feasible would it be to notify members in social groups, regarding new 'Posts'? in their particular group as the same scenario as the normal forum?

Hi Paddy

I don't think it is possible as I think it would be setup as standard, however I will have a look into it.

Would it be possible to have a top viewed column along similar lines to hottest threads? As not everybody contibutes but it would give an idea of what people are finding interesting.

Hi SF Admin

How feasible would it be to be able to search users by location and not just name. This would enable a search for users in your own area.

Thanks

Is this not already there? Check the bottom of the home page.

Hi Colllo

Thanks for your suggestions!

1. We could have a top viewed threads list but it would have to replace hottest threads.

I don't know what the general consensus is, but if people want it then the change can be made quite easily.

2. Searching by location would be great but is not be possible as the search function cannot be modified in anyway.

SF Admin

Hi SF Admin,

Is there any way of speeding up, or removing altogether, the delays once items have been posted.

For example, I have a PM waiting for me as I type and have been waiting to get to it since I got a notification email (for about 1hr 20 minutes).

It is the same when a new post is put onto a thread I am subscribed to, I get the notification email and go onto the forum but its not there if I am too quick.

SF Admin
20th April 2010, 04:29 PM
Hi There

I wonder if anybody else is having these problems as the notifications are only activated once the the post / pm is there?

Is anyone else experiencing these delays?

Hi SF Admin,

It's just a thought,
but I would like to see which members are viewing the same thread as you are (just been nosy) and how many guest are looking.
I know it shows how many viewers are looking at what subject group.
Hope you can understand this.

Best regards,

Do you mean the one at the bottom of the page?

If so I have no control over it and it displays the correct time to me.

You need to change your forum options to the correct time.

Go to quick links (look up to the right)

Select Edit Options

Scroll down and change the time format to the following:

Hope that helps,

Hi SF Admin,

I think that having a group on LinkedIn that directs people to this site would help. I have had a look on there for scaffold groups but there isnt much and definately isnt one for scaffold professionals... even the NASC arent on there yet (but SIA from USA is!!!).

Just a thought...

How about a chat room rather than messaging could work out faster if it's possible

A good way to improve it is to get rid of the melts who have started using it now... seems that alot of the older members dont use it anymore due to newer members acting like priicks on here.

You ran all the old timers from here...so I think you should be the first (melt..ha) to get terminated

I ran them out? seems that most upped and left AFTER me.
Terminate my account if Admin wants - i dont give a monkies.

MANY older members will agree with me about the Forum.
Too much bitchiness, bickering and spitefulness. Bigger Women here then on wwww.Expectant-Mums.com.

As with all forums there will be dips and troughs, highs and lows. We have just had a particularly busy time with the Olympics and Paras together with some brilliant weather. It's also been the summer holidays.

The cold winter months tend to see a busier forum.

Having said that, many topics have been around the block a few times and the older (not in age, guys ;)) members have probably answered the same question a dozen times. After awhile, you can't be bothered and you leave it to someone else.

Having said that, not many new topics have been coming up, apart from the job search question from new members, which I kknow rattles many regular users but at least they posted!

There was a period a few months back of nasty (I know many here would call it banter, but that's just blowing smoke :() picking on certain member/s and I think that sadly did drive some of the old guard away.

So moving forward, as we keep saying, all members need to try and contribute, however small your "voice" might be. When the old fellas move on, the newer members need to jump into the breech to keep converstaion bouyant and lively.

Chat has been asked for many times and I think it's been explained before that it is costly and too difficult to monitor. (Admin?)

As we head into autumn I am sure things will liven up again. All I'd ask is that you exercise a little consideration towards others (me! :D) - what you might say to a man's face on site (who you know) and how it comes across in type to someone who can't see how it's being said, is very different!

Oh... that was a bit of a meander!

Thats WITHOUT any overtime i do or PTS/LUL nightwork...
Which further increase my weekly take home.

You crack on with you supposed Pricework - along with your tool lanyards, double lanyards, adv. guardrail and TG:20 08.

Quiet you! Come graft with me and if you do well I'll buy you a baguette on Friday. I'm nice like that.

No shooter was about this sniper who got set up on an assassination, pretty sure he said that quote.
