Before saying it, I know, and agree with you all that Activeden is not receiving enough advertisement, not getting enough visitors. There are plenty more things we, as authors, would like to discuss, and do discuss, but what is the effect these threads have on our buyers? ” The End Is Nigh” / ” Flash Is Dying? ” ...

My request, can the developers make a new tab in the forum? ” Authors Only ” That is only visible to Authors. ( If someone has an item uploaded and approved he gets access to that tab ). We can talk about anything that may affect our buyers, share code if needed, who knows what other uses that tab will eventually lead up having!

This may seem unfair to buyers, but… it’s better than destroying our community and making buyers leave the marketplaces all due to chitchat on the forums. ( Chitchats that are not always true. Flash is not dying for example, by the release of 3D engines in AS3 , it just expanded, Activeden on the other-hand, might be dying. )

Guys? Do you agree with me about this? Wouldn’t an author tab be useful? We could talk about anything! :)

I totally agree, it would be great for authors. And restriction to “minimum one file in portfolio” is the best way to keep this forum section for authors only. I know it could be a complicated process for devs to add this, but I am sure that it is totally worth every effort. In fact, i think it will add a lot of points to authors’ productivity.

Productivity is one of the advantages, the other is being able to speak free without the stress of offending a buyer by mistake from just an average conversation… :|

what’s the point? we discussed this “author forum idea” in a dozen of threads in the past. I’m sure the developers know about this request already.

I like the idea, but, we can’t just repeat ourselves in different threads every couple of days.

Also, it was not you that bashed every thread open on the argument and asked to lock it? Now, why do you open another one on the same argument? It has no sense, really.

Nope. Didn’t ask those to be locked :) Doru do you have something against me? I was just trying to make a good suggestion for us and you seem angry / frustrated at me for some reason :| ... I might just be paranoid… just checking :)

Have nothing against you :)

I had the impression you requested some thread to be closed, maybe I had a wrong impression.

Just saying that we already discussed this one billion time. We can safely assume the developers know about this request. At some point, in another thread someone from the staff said that he writes down or potential ideas arriving from members and passed them to who decide what need to be implemented.

Having this clarified then we have two alternatives:

a) they don’t like the idea, for whatever reason and they will never implement it

b) they like it and they work on it, or is on schedule. When is done they will bring it online, as a part of the next redesign or as a standalone update.

Glad to hear that. I didn’t sleep in 48 hours, I misinterpret things easily now. My apology if I offended by asking you that :) No harm meant.

I’ve never asked threads on this topic to be closed ( I ask for threads to be closed usually when the matter has been resolved and it’s running off-topic ) . The main idea is that, as other things on Activeden ( referring to changes to our item pages, that took place about 4/5 months ago ) We had to ask numerous times for things to change before it actually happened. I opened this thread, with the name and intent to remind … maybe get some authors to share their opinion on this matter again.

Perhaps then the devs will actually make this request a real thing :)
