    Default How Can The Scaffolders Forum Improve?

    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!!???

    But I dont suppose your budget can stretch to that eh??
    I'm not a complete idiot....There are still bits missing!!

    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

    Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.

    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.

    Regards

    SF Admin

    Default Delays???

    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.
