What's Yestalk got that Yesfans doesnt have?

Postby the greenman » Fri Jan 02, 2009 2:03 pm

Without wishing to revisit the issues surfaced in a similarly names thread (...) it does seem to me this is something we need to be clear about.. A lot of the posters here also visit & contribute to Yesfans, which does seem the more active forum.

But yet here we are.. so it seems to me we ought to think about 'what's the difference' in a positive way, & develop a USP, a purpose, a reason for being for Yestalk that sets it apart from Yesfans & gives people a reason to come visit.

is it about the kind of people we are (it cant be if we visit both) or the things we discuss & the WAY we discuss them?

All shades of opinion welcome!

Marc

I'm not really sure the Holidays argument holds up... Yesfans appears to have been fairly busy (from what I can tell) & you might argue that people have MORE time to go online @ home & chat over the holiday period.

The interesting thing is that they're choosing to go there, not here...

Except a few of us brave souls!

Perhaps we should venture over their & invite them in, but we have to have a reason! A tasty treat to entice them...

Would Billy & the legend TK & Jimmy and maybe Jay too, be kind enough to commit to an exclusive 'online chat' in here to help promote the new Circa offering?

Or have we managed to upset Billy to much for that?! :o

I don't care for YF...never have. Not all, but many conversations seem a bit too teeny-bop for me. This site seems to have been abandoned primarily due to the bickering that was going on for a while back. Many a mod was sickened by it and regrettably, there ended up being only one way to deal with it. It's thankfully over and I do think things will pick back up again, the sooner the better. This site was hopping with intelligent debate for many a year, but insults and defamatory comments were few, if any. That changed, but necessary changes have taken place and I don't think that will be the case again. It will be a slow return, but this site will not wither.

Some good comments here.

I think of late, the intermittent slowness that the site seems to have has been the largest problem we face here. I've taken to opening Yestalk in a different browser window, so I can do other things while I wait on a thread to open, or something to post. Most people aren't going to take the time to do that - if things are slow, they're going to move along to something else.

And something to consider - as a site grows, the response time problems become more acute. Yesfans kept crashing due to increased activity, and finally had to opt for a dedicated server for the site, at a cost of $250/month. Having a lot of activity can be costly.

I really think if the site speed problems could be resolved with some consistency, then we could put some of these other suggestions in place, and get back to the level of activity we once had here, with an active chat room as well.

Great to hear from you, guildigger! Glad to know you are still around even if it's only in lurk mode. We all go through our lurk phases when life interferes with cyber-socializing. Hope to see more of you one day!

I think the server issue is one we may have to face...

Go into any Forum - like this or YF - and people expect **instant** response not to have to hang about waiting.. People dont, in general, have the patience we clearly do!

YF is to the nth degree faster & more instant than here..

Maybe there's some housekeeping that can be done to archive old threads, which arent live anymore which might speed response?

I'm not a techie, but I do a lot of work with websites so I know a little (only a little!) of what I speak

anyone got any suggestions as to what could be done to speed things up?
