Sting, I agree with you. The old blog is much better and organize.

The current blog, is same as echoloft ...less pictures and no updates on the item whether it is sold.

We don't have a choice since Blogger doesn't allow more than 100 authors. The tradeoff in using a forum engine such as this is to allow an almost unlimited number of members. We would have loved to have all posts right in front.

One way to overcome this is to bookmark the 'Audio & Video Equipment For Sale' page.

If the item is sold, you can always mark it as SOLD in the Subject field.

Yes, the old blog is much better but we've got no choice. So, in order to make this web fun like before, let's do it like the previous one. Photos on every posts for item for sale would be great and admin must disable post reply function so that the thread will not be too cluttered.

Thus, all the details such as price, contact, conditions, photos must be emphasized on every post.

Hi Sting. Loved you in DUNE.

Just wondering, hope you don't mind me saying this but wouldn't a chat thread be better in the discussion section rather than the "AV equipment for sale" section?

My humble opinion only. Please don't be offended.

Not at all my friend. I put it in here just to get direct hit and make as effective as possible.

And to Admin, you may delete this thread if you think it has reached to all music/hifi lovers in the 24hrs.

cheers!

Hi everyone,

I think it'll be easier if there are subforums in this AV equipment section. Something like this:

Loudspeakers
Amplifiers
Interconnects
CD players

etc.

Hi Sting and all,

In my opinion, the AUDIOGON site is best organised in terms of buying/selling hifi, especially if you know exactly what you are looking for. The items are categorized so well and and a straight forward search with the BRAND or MODEL normally shows up with several item(s) one look for and they are all laid out in a list for comparison and most importantly you can more or less see the 'market price'.

The 'old' format is good in the sense that you dont have to 'click' on each posting to see the details (including photos) but would be slow if your internet connection is not fast enough. Still you need to be 'free' and check the site once a day in order not to miss anything. This new format is 'echoloft' style and you need to do many clicks in order to 'see' details and rather 'cluttered' with alot of links and topics.

It would be great if someone can do a "AUDIOGON" lookalike combining postings from both MALAYSIA and SINGAPORE. The well planned "categories/sub categories" is such a wonderful tool that is not found here.

Anyway, to the guys behind Hifi4sale, a sincere congratulation and thanks for the great effort and contribution.

Best regards and a safe and Happy CNY/holidays to everyone! Very Happy

Hi Dexsam,
Firstly, thank you for your suggestions.
Actually, our future intention is also to breakdown the equipment by sub-forums. However, due to the volume of items being offered in Malaysia/Singapore, as well as the newness of this forum engine, the subsections/subforums (eg. CD players, turntables, amps, speakers, cables, accessories) may be too sparsely populated. Ince we reach critical mass, we will do so.
This feature is enabled in this forum engine, but not on the front page.

These are all open source tools. We're trying to enable as many features as we see fit, but as you know, Audiogon is a paid site, whereas Hi-Fi 4 Sale is a free website. As we've sent out an earlier mail to former hifi4sale.blogspot.com members, we are looking for assistance in customising the pages. Some HTML knowledge would be helpful.

Mr Admin,

Why don't we do it right at beginning by setting up sub-forums?. At least we can start with most popular items such AMP (pre/pwr/int), Speakers, Digital & Accessories (cables, cones..etc).

Forum pages are loaded/displayed much slower now

I notice that the pages got loaded on screen much slower nowadays. For example the Home page takes sometime (in tens of seconds) to get loaded. At first I thought its Streamyx fault but a click on Echoloft and other sites got instant response and they are displayed within 1 second. I dont know the problem, maybe your server loading, but I would like to suggest that the pictures be reduced in size. For example, when on the HOME page, the right sidebar shows the latest few posts' pictures in FULL size and this takes time to load as their hosts maybe slow too. I suggest Hifi4sale host computer capture "thumbnails" of these picture and store in-house with the links and users only download and display the full size picture from their respective hosts when they click on it. In this way it should operate much faster, presently we may not be interested in certain items but still need to wait forever for it to get downloaded.
