    Here is an idea for some new sub forums. I was thinking perhaps one for Uniforms and Insignia and one for Military organisations and Units. I know there is a forum for Militaria in general but these might be helpful for those of us who have a more defined interest.

    It is. I've been meaning to expand the forums for some time now, suggestions in that area will be helpful. We've already added the Chine-Burma-India sub-forum and more are on the way.

    Not that im hinting or anything but this idea is due to that I don't really understand the photo galleries. I mean, wouldn't it be easier to have all the photos posted in it's own lil corner?

    Also, it certainly works on other sites im on where the head honcho picks a photo and places it for whateveramountoftimehesodeems? at the top of the forums and then changes it every so often.

    One final thing, how about a photo or series of a few photos that headline every forum? For instance-and im not trying to be a glory hog but, I have a series of four photo's that were taken in the field of several German soldiers being presented their Ek2's (that's) Iron Cross 2nd classes for those who remain uninformed ;-)) Anyway, those four photo's would go perfectly in heading the Militaria forum-not just cause they are mine but ;-))

    I'm now off my :rant: for now.

    The Photo idea would work better if people actually TAGGED their photos. :eek: And also included descriptions with their photos. That way, for instance, in the Militaria forum, Otto could (hypothetically, since its just an idea atm) have a script that displays only photos with certain TAGS on them in certain forums. Yah?

    Hi Musso/ that sounds great to me. Also-and not that im hinting again, but, the photo's I sent to Otto sometime ago, I can't remember if I had written any info on the backs of them or not? Also, being it's been awhile, I can't honestly say what photo's I had made copies of to be able to say anything about them until they are posted.

    Anyway, a "News Ticker" or "Info Slip" type thing; with the info on it is a great idea.

    Best regards-Carl.

    Also in addtion to the ideas of Uniforms and Insignia and one for Military organisations and Units how about a central one for the personal stories of WWII vets?

    Another new idea might be a section just for vendors to post in. That way the amount of spam they try to post would be eliminated and contained LOL..

    Spammers spam, they don't post in one place or even in the 'correct' threads. Wouldn't do anything.

    Then of course perhaps a Vendor or For Sale subforum? And another idea would be a forum for the types of threads and questions most commonly ask. For example the "Best" ."Favorite" and other similar types that appear often.

    This one is for Za!

    I have noticed the great Za has been putting food & drink in to his threads lately. So how about a little sub forum all for Za to post his food ideas and what wines to get this month. :D

    10 steps ahead of you as far as the Vendor Forum goes. We're still debating this idea in the Command Post. Lots to consider, along with the best way to organize it.

    You could keep it simple and allow the seller to post a listing of the item description along with a link to an eBay listing in which the item is actually for sale. That way eBay deals with the transaction and the WW2F listing is more of a marketing piece. It also forces eBay to act as the decision-maker if a questionable item comes up for sale.

    Just a thought . . .
