Request A Feature On The Website and Give Your Feedback
Dear fellow model engineers and workshop owners, this is your community, your website so please request a feature and/or explain what you would like to see on the website.
Here are some of the features I have been thinking about adding and I would welcome your comments either using the Comment Form below or by email using the Contact Us Form.
Contacting and Interaction with Other Subscribers and Visitors to the ModelEngineeringInThailand.com Website
Your Privacy Is Important – But Interaction With Others Is So Valuable
It is a matter of privacy for all the subscribers to the announcement list that I do not release their names or emails to the general public.
And yet I’m sure that many of the people on the announcement list would like to contact some of the others. This would allow the sharing of resources and information to the benefit of everyone.
I can think of a couple of ways this could be done:-
Subscribers could simply give me their permission to have their name and email distributed to the other subscribers. I would then circulate the details to everyone on the announcement list. I could probably add another Field to the subscription form to allow subscribers to opt in for this option.
The advantage for me is that it’s a simple thing to do.
The disadvantage for everyone is that the interaction and information would not be on the website for others to see, share and react to.
I could start a forum where people could interact but not necessarily have their email address disclosed.
The disadvantage for me is that some moderation would be required and I don’t want to spend my valuable time moderating a large forum. Perhaps someone would like to volunteer for that job?
The advantage is that all the interaction is there for all to see, not hidden away in private emails. (Although there would be a facility for private interaction through a Private Messaging feature.)
There is no reason why the Forum should not have all the features of the Forum at the Model Engineer website or even more features according to what people want.
This is another idea I have been intending to implement but since it will take a bit of setting up I have not done it until I’m sure there’s a demand for it.
Your Own Private Website on ModelEngineeringInThailand.com
How would you like your own private section of the ModelEngineeringInThailand.com website where you can write your own Posts, create your own Pages, upload your photos and videos, just like I do?
I would set up your own private section of the website where you could log in and basically do what you wish.
There would be some restrictions, of course to ensure security of the website.
Or maybe you think the Forum is adequate enough?
Please let me have your thoughts.
Maybe you have just one or two articles or pieces of advaice you want to post, but you don’t need a separate section of the website for yourself.
I could easily create a Users Corner on the website and I would upload your articles, photos videos etc for you.
Any thoughts on that, please?
The Resource section of the website is in it’s infancy (as is the whole site), and I am adding resource information that I have by hand.
My intention is to set up a resource Database that anyone can post to and upload photos or comments to. I’ll find a website that has a similar database and put the URL here.
Other Features and Ideas for the Website
If you can think of any other features you would like to see or have any particular idea about the way the website is set up and/or where it’s going please let me know.
