Title: Greg says IF forums are back
Post by: bluedaemon23 on November 04, 2010, 11:56:47 AM
There's an announcement today that says they've reactivated the forums.  At least Member to Member Help, Feature Requests and eBay News are back - but no Hoppin Place.  Also, he says they'll "monitor to make sure everyone is nice."  Yes, daddy...

I hope they picked a better system than that mess they had before.

What's the point of getting invested in their forums again?  In the blink of an eye they can go poof yet another time.

Exactly!  Why bother?  As soon as one rotten apple gets going, *everybody* gets punished.  Reminds me of grade school.

My thoughts as well. Why bother.

There was some very informative posts that got poofed along with everything.
Some of them the folks put a lot of time, research and thoughts into them only to have them gone
IF is not the easiest to understand and use and the forums helped out so many people

The way the whole situation was handled each time was immature and disrespectful to IF customer base.
Other forums like this one have active moderators who make sure the forums "stay nice"
Of course when you have a business forum people are going to voice their complaints but most business' address those complaints in a timely and respectful manner (and delete any that are too derogatory of the business) not just shut the whole thing down.

Monitoring requires thinking and making decisions.  Poofing an entire forum requires one button push.

Thank you for the compliment.
We strive to remain a forum that's both friendly and informative.
It's not a win-win situation for the admins/members to have threads with arguing about non-ecommerce issues.
