Signature

Post by PhilipHowe » Mon Sep 07, 2009 10:05 am

Something I've always found helpful on other forums is using the signature as an 'experience' holder. For instance, on forums I use at work, there is one that asks you to list your experience level, ie 10 years development experience and any relevant qualifications etc.

On my signature on here, I have listed my current equipment list in use. This then allows any member to search the forum for, say a lens. It will then return all members who have that lens. It may help other members when looking at new equipment as they can then go and have a word and find out that users experience with a particular lens/camera before purchasing.

Just a thought, but I would be interested in the equipment other members have. I realise, of course, that some members may like to keep that a secret, for whatever reson they wish.......... 8)

Walter,

The fact that you've entered it here, the meaning is the same. If I now search the forum for Elinchrom 500, it will list your post in the results!

Thanks.

Just a thought...

When does a signature become an inventory?

My feeling is that it gets a bit OTT and clutters up the forum.

I doubt very much that many of our members will be wanting to do a search on who has a particular piece of equipment. If they want to find someone who has an item then they can just post a message and ask. :)
Best regards

John
