PostSubject: Time for an Advanced Section?   Tue Feb 26 2008, 15:16

There are quite a few of us bored out of our heads with most of the discussion bandied about lately (with the odd exception namely paul's admirable articles) and would gladly welcome a section dedicated to topics of genuine interest. really get stuck in so to speak. many of the lads are reluctant to post due to the lack of in-depth response on their level of experience. whatcha reckon?

i don't know if it would be a good idea because it's like splitting the site in 2(the advanced and the so called noddys),but what kind of topics are u on about GG that couldnt be posted on the site the way it is,lots of lads dont post anyway even if the topic is intresting or not,who will help the new commers if what they post is not up 2 someone's elses level,just my opinion.

Hi Matt, I dont mean a seperate/closed area of the site just a Advanced section where the boys can get stuck in. still open to all and I can guarantee it will be put to good use by many. GG.

I wouldn't mind a section that could house some of the more advanced sections of the sport. There's a lot of us out there who have been in the sport for a while now 10yrs+ who would have a lot of info stored up over the years and who would be running into problems which affect the state of our fishing at present.

Several of the more experienced guys on here involved in the clubs might be confronted with problems such as stock densities for the club waters, pH levels in the water of these lakes, predation, dealing with County Councils, Fisheries boards, all manner of problems which when being discussed as a topic can get bogged down by posts asking about lesser factors of the problem. The discussion goes off track and solutions are never arrived at.

If a section was set up it should not in any way alienate anybody posting on this section as everyone is going to run into the same problems the longer they are in the sport. What problems the experienced guys are having will be the problems of the new comers to the sport in the next few years.

I think what can happen at times is topics are allowed to go off topic a bit too much which is an issue with the mods if I'm honest. Topics being posted up should not get bogged down or side-tracked leading to the questions that are being asked for never getting answered. However I wouldn't like to see the forum go strict as I think it's absolutely fine the way it is.

As I say, I wouldn't mind a section in the existing forum for more advanced problems or discussions but maybe have that section watched a bit closer for off-topic posts. This would still be open to all but the original reason/idea for the posts would not be deviated from.

Interesting idea, if for no other reason than to see what sort of topics arise.

I have never seen this idea on any of the other forums - generally speaking the mods get involved a lot more and give out to lads who post the "what's the best frying pan?" topic every week.

Regardless off best intentions, you do run a risk of having a 2-tier system where lads are frightened of looking stupid if they stray into the "advanced section" by mistake.

Worth trying out though!!

That would be the major concern Fin, Natas idea was to set this up to be a resource for everyone, no matter how experienced or inexperienced the anglers are. You can't complain when somebody asks a question on a topic on which they're not sure of, we've all been had to find these things out and just a few sentences can help somebody enormously when they are looking for answers or how to go about achieving certain things.

I think a section for more advanced discussions could work on the basis of it being regulated a bit tighter that the normal posts in the other sections. For example if somebody asks a question on the topic being discussed, maybe move this question to one of the other sections (which I think cover all aspects of the hobby) and answer it there. Just small things like that can help a topic move along smoothly without getting bogged down.
