We plan to create an area within the forum to which only is viewable by shop owners.
The background is as follows:
All posts in this forum, as it is the nature of a forum,are public and can found via web search.
This is important, so that the dealers which does not know this forum can find it at all.
But our dealer needs an area where you they talk sometimes about non-public transactions,
We received this request and now you want to create an area that is open only to registered dealers.
This will also reduce the risk, that these posts are read by users who aren’t really concerned or people
who are determined to search for legal issues, which happened to be discussed in the forum.
There will be this private area.
Our idea is that access only:
(1) upon request (by email to firstname.lastname@example.org) and
(2) After the applicant submits more than one month is logged into the board and
(3) has at least five meaningful (no SPAM) posts
Of course, the applicant must also own a shop run by ePages.
We are aware that this hurdle is set very high, but we do to your protection, so that you may continue writing without
worries in the forum.
Please use this forum really only for posts that are to remain within the dealer and not for general posts.
If you do not want to post your real URL in the forum, you can use short URL service. With its help you can store your address Shorten that your Shop is longer automatically recognizable, but the link to your shop will work.
What do you think about it?
