  • Over to you suggestion for forum

    For many years a British Paper had a on line site called over to you. People sent in request for help of a very general nature. It really covered a wide range that covered such things as looking for WEB sites for listenning to air traffic control to how they could find a program to keep track of scores in a Bridge tournament. It was amazing that even for obscure topics how many people replied with helpful suggestions. Unfortunately the the site closed. How about a new forum based on a similar type of idea.

      While I agree a site like that would be of great use, I think it doesn't fit in with out core theme, Microsoft/Cisco/Security etc.
      1 1 was a racehorse.
      2 2 was 1 2.

        I agree that it would not be one of the areas but most people involved in your other forums do have interests and activities outside of the core forums and would probably welcome a' time out' to look at things of a more general nature.
        As you are one of the administrators could I ask, if there appears to be interest for this,if you would allow this forum to run for a short period of time to evalute its performance

          It sounds good, and I would be interested in setting up a site on that sort of theme, but dont have the php skills to do so.

          Anyone interested in a collaboration -- I will get a domain name to kiick things off

            I would like to help but also do not have a lot of experience. I have pasted the address from the last time a entry was made in the Daily Telegraph for this type of site. This was about two years ago but does give some idea of the range and type of questions raised
            Regards

                Let's do it. I'll get the domain name and even provide the hosting. How's that?

                  Please clarify. Why use a new domain name, is it not possible of better to open a new forum or perhaps this is what you mean

                        It does sound like a good idea. I haven't seen anything like it around before and it would be handy to know "How to rewire a plug) , but do you not think a lot of questions could be answered by ???

                          I guess they might, but from what I understand, this is some sort of a wiki or community thing.

                          On the other hand, one would need to get a very fancy interface to handle all those spin offs and huge number of topics that might be covered.

                          I tend to agree with some of the moderators that say that although this is a very nice idea, it's hardly related to the petri.co.il brand, and should be treated as a separate identity.

                          If someone's willing to handle the technical issues I'll be happy to get the domain name and provide the hosting.

                            Some time ago Tom Jones (Ossian Ltd) one of your moderators said he would help. and I would also like to get involved as a moderator. By the very general nature of the forum the moderators do not have to be technically skilled but rather, better on the administration side. Initially I would suggest that the different topics raised would open a new thread. Later if it reallyl takes off large threads could open new forums
                            From your point of view there could be interest generated to advertisers depending on the threads

                              Michael No doubt how to rewire a plug would be found on Google but I as far as I am aware Google does not continue with threads or at least not yet. Google is very commercialised where as petri.co.il is on a much more personal basis.
                              In addition you have moderators who if they do there job properly would select topics sent in.
                              I presume that you are also able to select for yourself things to read according to the title. It never ceases to amaze me how much information some people have about the most obscure things and their willingness to share it
