  Attention forum owners / moderators
Posted by: disarmamant - 11-May-2018, 09:10 - Forum: Information, Rules & FAQ - Replies (16)

Hi
I'm not sure if I'm posting this in the correct part of the forum, but the owners and/or moderators need to be aware of the fake adverts that are being put up as sponsored adverts on the Tapatalk version of this forum.

I use the free version of Tapatalk on my iPad. The free Tapatalk is of course full of adverts, but lately there has been fake news type scam adverts for bitcoin trader. They are putting up fake adverts claiming that Dragons Den is being axed by the BBC as some of the stars are now investing in Bitcoin and making millions. They are claiming that Gordon Ramsay is closing his restaurants as he is making more money investing in Bitcoin.

I have reported these fake adverts to Tapatalk who have told me they have no control over the forums advertisement content and to contact the forum admin.

Here is the reply I got from Tapatalk.

Thank you for following up on this matter. 

Tapatalk hosts forums and has no access to forum's content management. 
We are in no position to determine if the news posted on this site is fake or otherwise. 
We'd appreciate if you could please approach the site admin to remove the content or other authorities to have the content removed. 
Thank you for reporting this to Tapatalk.

Maybe the Devialet Chat admin needs to look into this?

  New Site Features
Posted by: Rufus McDufus - 05-Dec-2017, 15:14 - Forum: Information, Rules & FAQ - Replies (4)

For your amusement and delight, I've added a few features to this site.

Firstly you may have noticed the 'Alerts'  item near the top when you're logged in to the forum. This gives notifications for things such as when someone replies to a thread you started, or replied quoting a post you made. The full list of alerts types is listed in User CP under 'Alert Settings' where you can turn off/on specific alert types (they're all on by default).

Secondly there's a 'Mention' feature where you can mention another user by quoting their username with an @ symbol in front. If your username is mentioned by someone else then you should see an alert.  As soon as you type @, a selection box should pop up where you can start typing a username and you'll be presented with the choices. Initially with an empty selection you should get (I think) a list of users who have already contributed to the particular thread, if any.
In addition there's also a 'Mention' button at the bottom of each post which will automatically insert a mention of that post's username in any reply you make.

  Moderation
Posted by: thumb5 - 16-Jul-2017, 09:45 - Forum: Information, Rules & FAQ - Replies (5)

The discussions going on in the Devialet News->Streamer board...? thread at the moment about whether there should be a new section for threads about Roon got me thinking a bit.

It strikes me that changing the structure of the forum in itself is not likely to reduce the number of posts that end up in the wrong thread: it's human nature that some people have ideas they'd like to express whenever and wherever they occur, while others like to organise things more carefully and will try to post to existing, relevant threads where possible.  That won't change overnight just because there's an extra section in the forum, and there will always be some tension between these ways of interacting with the forum.

So I wonder whether what we need is a bit more active moderation to keep the structure of the forum under control in a more dynamic and reactive way.  The Roon forum seems to be a good example of this: as hifi_swlon said in another post, the moderators there seem to act subtly but quickly to split and merge threads where necessary to keep things on-topic.  Their approach seems to be very effective.  Fortunately both the Roon forum and this forum (DC) seem very good natured for the most part so I expect the moderators don't often have to step in to stop threads going sour.

Which brings me to the question: do we need more moderators, and if so would anyone be willing to take on this role?  I'm not sure exactly how it works and how much time and effort it would entail; maybe Guillaume or Rufus might be able to give some guidance.

I should say right away that I'm not in any way trying to imply that the existing moderators are not doing a great job. Rather I'm aware that there aren't many of them and we shouldn't expect them to be spending 24 hours a day on the forum keeping it under control.  Spreading the load is all I'm suggesting.

Maybe I'm on the wrong track here, in which case I won't be upset if anyone says so.  But if more moderators would be a good thing then I'd be pleased to help (although I haven't done this sort of thing before!).

Sorry for the downtime from around 20:30 for an hour and a half or so.  The server decided to crash and completely trashed the database.  All is good but restored from this afternoon (around 16:00 BST) so there will be some missing comments from then until now.  Many apologies.

We're going to make a few changes to the server the site runs on over the next few days. This shouldn't affect anyone except you may find yourself having to login to the site a little bit more than usual. Hopefully this'll be the only thing anyone notices!

  Major announcement!
Posted by: GuillaumeB - 31-Oct-2016, 15:04 - Forum: Information, Rules & FAQ - Replies (47)

Dear all,

I've got some big news, well for me at least, and I thought it important that I share this with the rest of the forum for reasons which will become very clear in a few seconds....  Big Grin

I have just become the official distributor for Shunyata Research in the UK! Some of you may recall that a few months ago I got my hands on a number of their products and was literally blown away by their performance. I initially approached another distributor I know well about taking them on but he wasn't able to for a number of reasons. It just seemed crazy to me that there wasn't a UK distributor. To cut a very long story short I decided to take a huge leap into the unknown and give it a go myself! After months of discussions and now just back from a trip to Seattle I am now proud to announce that I have formed a new company: The Shunyata Distribution Company which will soon start trading pending VAT registration and one or two other formalities. I know, I'm crazy, but sometimes these opportunities come up in life and you just have to go for it. It's always been my dream to work in hi-fi.

Before anyone freaks out I have no intention of using the forum to blatantly promote Shunyata. Whilst dealers and manufacturers are welcome on the forum we have always taken quite a hard line against blatant product advertising and this is not about to change! No way!

Having said that I do not intend to leave the forum; I am still a Devialet owner and this place very much feels like home. It's amazing to think that it was almost 2.5 years ago when I started PM'ing members of Hifi Wigwam with an idea of creating a dedicated Devialet forum. We now have over 2600 members and are one of the busiest hi-fi forums on the internet averaging just under 60 posts a day! Anyway I digress... the point is Devialet Chat means a lot to me and I am not about to compromise my integrity because of my arrangement with Shunyata.

So if everyone is OK with this I propose that nothing changes. I'll keep my business activities low-key and won't discuss products unless anyone specifically asks about them. I will update my signature shortly and restrict any discussion about Shunyata to the Shunyata thread. Smile In short I promise to abide by the very forum rules I helped to install.  

Guillaume
