A differing point-of-view coming up: when I come onto this forum, I rather like that it's friendly, that there is an amount of support from other forum members for painting efforts but, most importantly, that there are threads which are full of useful rules queries, inspirational links, etc. etc. If there are too many "good work" and "like" posts, I find that the useful content gets lost amongst the noise. In fact, as the number of those kinds of posts have gone up over the last couple of months, I've found that I'm checking the forum less as it's getting harder to see the wood for the trees.

Perhaps as one way to limit that each forum member could have one thread for all of their painting and modelling efforts like, for example, Kev does? If nothing else, it would make it easier to see all of the fine work by each individual member in one place.

I rarely comment on anything unless it really grabs my attention. If I see an interesting thread then I'll read it, and look at the pretty pictures. Generally speaking though unless I feel I can contribute something more than just 'Nice paint job!' or similar then it's not worth signing in. That may be why facebook posts get more response, you are already signed in, and a 'like' icon can sum up your feelings just as well as any two or three word message.

Hmmmm.. Interesting.
Ok I'll put all my trees in one wood
That should tidy things up a bit
If any one wants to comment on that I'd welcome feedback.
Even if it's just a smiley face... For me it feels recognised. 'Views' are very neutral.
Three smiley faces ! Best day ever

Interesting POV. Probably goes a long way to explain the disparity between comments and views that the OP mentioned.

Of course it all depends on what you use a forum for. For me it is exactly the opposite to you, the increase of people showing their work get me on here a lot more. The rules queries quite frankly bore me out of my tiny little brain, (for  any rule set not just 7tv). But I'm luck I suppose that my gaming is always very social with family and close friends, so any rules queries are dealt with by a quick chat, consensus decision and then the fun continues and they are forgotten.

On one of the model railway forums I belong to there are "thank you", "craftsmanship/clever", "like", "informative/clever", "useful" etc buttons at the foot of every post you can click instead of making a comment post. The software coding is beyond me but maybe they could be added here.

Nice idea. The back-end of this forum is held together with brown paper and string, so that maybe tricky

I have to agree with Morgan, I like the supportive nature of the forum.

I also agree that your idea of keeping ongoing work on a single thread keeps it tidy. I have noted on other forums where individuals (not deliberately) post a painted item, it is commented on and then the individual posted the next thing painted on a new thread, gradually pushing any other contributors' threads off the front page.

Yeah, freindly is good.  Long threads for each pseud's painting works best (hence my stupidly long thread in the painted bit)




Smile!  It's not that bad!

Its probably because many of us use facebook. Only checking in here occasionally.

I prefer forums but life is mental and FB is more convenient on the move.

There are some really good community groups on facebook for various games and genres.
