We need feedback! PiPho forum boards restructuring
« on: September 17, 2014, 09:44:35 AM »
Hi All,

Its been years since we restructured the boards. Upon observation there are forum categories that are now inactive. We are thinking of merging some categories into one and also we'll be adding new ones like smartphone cameras and others.

It would be great to hear from the members to post here your suggestions.

Thanks

Maybe we can just merge the photography discussions and photography related discussions.

I would suggest simplifying the boards, the highly specific sections and sub-sections can be intimidating or cumbersome on mobile
Perhaps, instead of subsections just ask people to tag their post topics like [Gear] or [Portrait]
Personally, I mainly come to Pipho to check other people's feedback on gear or the other things that I can't properly find on my social network feeds like serious topics that may affect my photographic interests like service center feedback

For the things like classifieds, discounts from stores and promo events, I already get those from social media so they have to offer something more substantial for me to consider browsing the specific Pipho section for it

suggestions lang po:

COMMUNITY BOARD
Forum Guidelines:
* this is imperative that it be placed on top. however, i wonder how come some posts seem to enter that is not related to the forum guidelines? can this somehow be filtered?
*i wonder if we could have something like a forum guidelines then the registrant can check YES (or no) if he/she agrees to the forum's guidelines first before registering.
* forum faqs and forum feedbacks should instead be under forum guidelines

GENERAL DISCUSSIONS
* not really sure if people are aware of this section as i notice only few people reply to posts
* photographer in spotlight: why not pipho be the one to nominate a photographer in spotlight choosing from the pool of pipho members? the nominee can showcase his/her works and he/she can be sent a template with questions to answer like how he/she started, why did he/she choose landscape photography, etc. then we can posts his/her answers. then other forum members can get to ask that photographer

GEAR MARKETPLACE
* i thought if we buy from these premium sellers, as pipho member we get extra discount but that is not the case for most of them. the discount they give is the same discount whether or not you are a pipho member. in a way, i would have expected that being a pipho member would give me better privileges from the premium sellers. hope these sellers give extra discount to us  ;)

LIVE SHOTS and PRO WORKSHOPS
* i guess we can remove this since it isn't really being used much

PIPHO CONTESTS
* hope this can be revived and something like a monthly thing wherein the winner gets like a badge/medal shown in his/her avatar. prizes doesn't have to be in the form of a material. an announcement who won 1st, 2nd, and 3rd for me is enough to be proud of.

OTHER THINGS:
* i may be wrong, but we seem to be catering vastly to male audience only. maybe we should do something about this so female photographers would be more attracted to pipho. i am sure there are great female photogs out there and maybe we can ask a few female piphols if the forum is somewhat gender biased?

* can we have some sort of charity section? i am sure a lot of people would like to help in times of need of our fellow countrymen who have been devastated by storm, poverty, famine. maybe pipho and its members can help these people. let's say we organize a bazaar wherein piphols would donate a lens, a bag, or anything related to photography or not and then the mods would attach a price for the donated items and all money goes to charity. something like a garage sale for the needy  ;) ;)

* i can't seem to attach a file when sending a pm to a fellow pipho....can that be fixed?

......don't know if my statements make sense at all so pasensya na po kung magulo  ;D
