That's a great idea. You're right, we can't tag members under the current infrastructure, but some of the ones we're considering moving to offer it. It would be great to offer it.
Thanks, Nate. I'm happy to say that improved search is only weeks away. We've needed it for years!
Search function improvement is a good idea Steve.
Another thing that I would like to see is a counter for each post. In other words a running total showing how many "visits or hits" each individual post has received. Many of the message boards I belong to have a running totals when it comes to # of views. Don't know if that is possible but it's a shiny kind of feature.
A better search function is definitely needed, Don, and right around the corner. I'll look into displaying how many people visit, but it probably will have to wait until we move to a new software platform.
Thanks for your input.
I'll put those all on the list, Chad. Great ideas!
An area /database for photos of deemed good and bad autographs of individual artists would be good so for instance i could type in an artist and look at posted photos of known good signatures and then pages of known bad signatures this would help people a lot in deciding authenticity
photos could only be posted once its been passed by other members as authentic it would take some running but if members were involved it could be self regulated it may add to the discussions ie should it go in the good or bad or possibly dont know area
i realise it could help the fakers but we could stop abuse by only allowing known good members access or only allowing access after say 6 months of active membership
its only a thought and i dont know the logistics of it for the site but i for one would really find it usefull
