1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    It says it's a subjectivist forum etc etc which means people are invited to talk bollocks about matters they have zero knowledge or understanding of and one must not point this out.... So that will be my first and last visit to that site... FFS there's already a section on hi fi fuseso_O:eek:

    I’m surprised you got any further than
    Rule 1. please do not attack other members personally. It's fine to disagree without "playing the man"
    before realising it wasn’t for you:)

    It’s not very good form to use a popular forum to promote another!

    Why not? The more the better in my view.

    I got halfway down the passive aggressive rules and will not be going back. It is a special room to flounce into.

    Have to register to read it? How much do email addresses sell for?

    There are far more forums than people interested in participating in them. Why should Tony support an advertisement to a competitor? Honestly, if you can’t see the issue then it probably can’t be explained to you.

    Maybe a specialist Hi-Fi Foo forum where the only talking points are fuses,mains cables,cable lifters,
    magic triangles,electron enhancers,golden ears and magic hats.

    If nothing else, at least the forum's name isn't as bad as it might have been with audio and forum in there. Here are a few close calls:

    New Audio Forum = NAF
    Diversity Audio Forum = DAF
    Subjectivists Audio Forum = SAF
    Listening Audio Forum = LAF
    Fine Audio Forum = FAF
    Forum Audio de Profesionale = FAP

    If that is the case, I couldn't see how another forum would rob him of any meaningful income. I'm still waiting on YNWAN (sp) to explain it to me.

    FWIW I wish him the best of luck with it.

    PS Locking it so visitors can’t see is a terrible idea. People join forums because they have seen and liked the existing content, no one will ever register anywhere without that. A healthy online ratio is 1/3rd registered members, 2/3rds guests. Go too far either way from that and something is wrong.

    I quite agree Tony.
    I looked at pfm as a guest for quite a while until I decided to be permitted to search for topics and ask my own questions and decided to register as a member - it's been a huge benefit over the years!
    If Iv'e got to register before I can even be allowed to see what I'm registering for, in these days of internet security issues, then dosvedanya, (did I spell that right BL?)

    It wasn't locked when I looked at the website yesterday - something has obviously changed. I wasn't sure about joining yesterday but now I know for sure I won't. A surprising decision by the administrator there.

    Same as Snakeoil forum? I won't be joining.

    I wasn't going to join but that's a very odd decision. Maybe it had been over-spammed by objectivists.

    I havn't checked it out but maybe it's a work in progress. I agree that having a look around initially, before joining, is a good option to have.
    Most other comments here are the usual troll bollocks.
    By the sounds of it, it will attract those interested in equipment rather than scientific measurements etc... which seems fair enough to me.

    Shane is one of the good guys, I would definitely take his opinion over many here where hifi is concerned.
    Clever idea though Shane, fumigate the place before infestation takes hold :D
