A new photo forum - would you be interested? - Page 2

post #11 of 110
I dunno, it could be effective, but I agree that it seems like the forum around here feels a bit dead at times, so it might not be a heavily frequented site.

^^ Was just about to say that, an intergrated site.

Sounds cool though, it needs to be linked though somehow.

If you did make a separate one, I don't know how you could spread it.

To be honest, I don't think it will work out very well, due to the reasons stated: This is a fairly small community of people on this board. A LOT of the posts that happen here, are from "visitors" of the rest of the forum stopping in to ask for a recommendation for their next camera, or to throw up a "Hey! Look at my pics!" thread or post, and then they often don't show up again.

Sometimes, quite rarely, they stick around for a bit, and then disappear. Then there's the lunatics who stick around .

In other words, I don't see it taking off as the original awesomeness that is OCN. I think it would end up being like the carforums.net adventure that still hasn't really garnered much of a following.

Part of the problem with setting up a full forum, is that it would be in competition with the already established pillars of the Photography world.

Since I'm a member of a number of other online photo places, I have inkling to keep it part of OCN. However, I would like to see it broken out a little bit more.

For instance have a: "What Camera Should I Buy" sub-forum?

I would not use a new forum. POTN and this photo forum are all I need.

Actually, that would be a good idea. Make a dedicated sub-forum to Photography (not part of Consumer Electronics) and then appoint a dedicated set of moderators who would just be focused on that part of the forum. Then we could have better management about stickies and the like.

I'd be happy with something integrated. Although I do not have the required rep to sell, and have a fairly low post count to days since account was created ratio, I still like the fact that whenever I purchase something on here, the chances of it being a scam are about the lowest possible over the Internet. I feel that those who have worked hard for their statistics and privelage to sell would be getting the short end of the deal.

In addition, I think a completely separate site would not get as much traffic as this forum does, which would hurt it's effectiveness, and amount of reliable, useful content. It might reach that point someday down the road, but in the mean time it'd suffer.

Along the same lines though, I would love to see the photo section of ocn expanded. It would be nice to have a few sub forums for more specific and detailed categorization. Not sure if that's a possibility, but would be nice if it is.

I don't know if this is valid, but...

A reason the Photography sub-forum isn't visited as much as, say, Computer Peripherals could be because Photography is located near the bottom of the forum. Just throwing a suggestion out there, but if Photography were located near the top, it could garner more views. Maybe.

Also because this is primarily a computer forum over a "consumer electronics forum" the sub-forums related to computers gathers much more traffic than Photography. Say we did make a 100% Photography forum, while being 100% affiliated with OCN, it has the potential to grow larger than what a lot of us seem to believe it could -- me included.

One last thing. If Chipp thinks the Photography forum is successful (he explicitly typed success), and we already have acquired the domain, I say, "Why not?"
