Gear Talk / Re: Product reviews - Zone style
« on: July 30, 2007, 05:11:41 AM »
Hi all,

We believe that as it matures, our user review page(s) will become one of the more useful resources available to the stand up community.  Please help us in advancing this feature by posting a review (or more, if you are so inclined).  Better features will lead to a larger community.  That in turn will lead to more input into all of our posts, better answers to questions, etc. 

Enough begging...

The list has been moved to a more accessable fixed location.  If you look up, you will notice that it (and the manufacturer list) are now available on every page.

To have your review added, please respond to this post with your contributions.  Please list the product name and model, your height, weight and one of the following: New Paddler, Infrequent Paddler, Frequent Paddler.  Let us know your comments on the product.  If you are the first to post on a given model, the product page will be created (we will do this manually for now, so allow some time for this to occur).  If the product page already exists, your review will be placed above the previous review.  As always, your comments and participation are greatly appreciated.  The list will be updated as new reviews arrive. 

Thanks,
Admin

Perfect, for others, if you are reviewing a custom product, please email a photo.  For production products we will find a suitable photo online.

No worries, let us know about that Munoz as well!

Hi Alan,

In the short time that we have had the site up, we have been truly impressed not only by the quality and quantity of the contributions here, but of the excellent tone and cordiality that has been the norm since day one. 

In sincerity, all thanks go to you (plural).

Thanks for the link!  I have added it to the list.  Our goal is to make this list 100% inclusive.

Are you considering producing a full-paddle padded travel bag?

Hi Linter,

I appreciate your input,

i still think a reverse chronological list of every *new* post since last visit would be more useful to more people.

The reverse chronological list does offer you the ability to read new posts only with the caviat that you will need to recognize the first post that you have already read when you come to it, but that should be fairly straight forward.  All posts listed before that will be new, all after it you will have already read.

on the matter of group consolidation, you haven't said a word.  What's up w/ that?

Sorry, I touched on that when I had written:

This allows specific categorization for those who think that way (myself included), and bulk information for those who prefer that viewing style.

I think the software has done an impressive job in accomodating the many different ways that different users will use the site.

Those were meant to say that users really do use forums differently.  Some, for instance, may choose to only occasionally visit a "General" category which would contain (perfectly appropriate and valuable) threads like this one, or philosophical musings on the sport.

I left out a few pieces of underlying theory, which I did not want to bore you with, but here goes.  Web crawlers, the bots which are used by search engines (Yahoo, Google etc), will only crawl so deeply into a single database category (usually, the first few topics in each depending on site volume).  Thus, if all of our topics are in a single category, as on hot sails, we miss valuable web listings, and potential new users.  We have not yet been crawled for the first time, but that should occur within a month.

Also, MySQL (the relational database used here), functions WAY faster if a single bulk category is avoided.  This is especialy true when full site searches are being performed (which are the biggest performance killer on forums).  Now, with our whopping 40 members and 200 posts, this is not an issue, but in a few months, I envision a different scenario.

I promise, we are not trying to be too impressive with our main page, just trying to balance factors.  How about this, let's keep our eyes on it.  We will watch how things develop, and make changes in a few months as we mature, continue to gain users and get more input.

Your wish ...

Log in > Go to your Profile > select Look and Layout Preferences > Next to Time Offset hit Auto Select > Click change profile

In Hawaii this will use your system clock (assuming it is set for Hawaii Time) and auto-fill the offset at -6 hours.  You may also do this manually.  This allows all users to have the correct in their own time zone (as long as they are logged in).

Hi Linter,
Thanks again for your comments.  The view most recent posts link essentially offers the same functionality as the Pono site (plus some added features).  This is the most basic sequential list style forum view.  It is a reverse chronological list of every post ever made on the site, displayed 10 per page, with the ability to view in one spot all posts since your last visit.  Along with the original posters name and last respondents name, you can also see the individual title of the thread, plus the category it belongs to, with no need to toggle back and forth.  This allows specific categorization for those who think that way (myself included), and bulk information for those who prefer that viewing style.

I hope this is helpful and allows you to enjoy the forum in a way that works well for you!

Hi, and thanks for the comments.  We definately want to hear what the community wants. 

In regards to your specific concerns, I hope you will find that the functionality already exists in the software. 

At the bottom of the "Forum Stats" section on the bottom of the home page you can view all of the most recent posts with a single click. 

In your Profile page, you have the ability to customize many of the parameters that will help each user display results in a manner that is most desirable to them (although you will need to be logged in). 

I think the software has done an impressive job in accomodating the many different ways that different users will use the site.  We are definately open to suggestions, however.

In the five short days since we have begun here, 3 members have PM'ed for a category that might seem not directly on topic - the environment.  Well, no need to twist our proverbial arm.  Here it is.  I will begin by duplicating a link here that was posted elsewhere by Chan.  This is her writing (a recent essay contest submission).
