Have your suggestions to improve on the forum board

We need images and photos besides writing.

Postby stampheart » 20 Feb 2009 02:47

I notice that many members put posts in our forum and the amount of activity of late is rather encouraging.
It might help to create more interest if more images are put on the forum so that others can see images and learn more.
These could be images of stamps, covers, postmarks, stationery or anything else which can help members learn more about the various areas of philately.

It would also be nice if there are photos and some write-ups of events and even our weekly Tuesday meetings. Photos and some write-up as to what was discussed at some (not necessarily all Tuesday meetings) would create more interest in these meetings and perhaps more members may be encouraged to attend them (also since they are open to both members and non-members of PSM).

It is also possible for members to perhaps put a one-page exhibit (sort of) any topic or area of philately on another thread (perhaps admin might want to create one) for members to post their one-page exhibits.

There could also be a ask any question on philately thread which can be a learning forum for all (those who ask questions as well as those who answer).

Cheers
Andrew

Just another thought. It might be good to have a thread that can give a little tutorial on how to start exhibiting - what should be collected, how to display, what can be exhibited, rules of competive versus non-competitive exhibitions, judging of exhibits, etc. Perhaps if more members are exposed to this information, more may be interested in exhibiting.

Cheers

Thought I would just bump this thread. The forum has grown in membership and it is nice to see more members posting questions and others responding. Hope members would also be willing to post more images to make the thread more eye-catching and that more members will respond to some of the queries posted.

More members have joined since my last post here. There have been many more threads being started but still there is the lack of images of stamps and other material. While there are members with posts leading to websites with images, etc. it would be nice if some of the pictures from those websites can be scanned or copied and pasted in their posts here for many more members to see...after all a picture is worth a thousand words and they would definitely attract members to read the posts with images in them. It would be nice if we can all try to make an effort to put in more photos, especially if the posts warrant them.

Andrew, the problem I see here is that one needs to have a scanner or a camera in the first place. Secondly, they need to host their image or photo at their own webhost (if they have one) or some other free photo-hosting websites like photobucket.
Best regards
