Did anyone notice?

There's a whole new website from the same people that brought us lawnsite.com that's all about landscape construction, and it has a lighting sub-forum.

Looks like it's slow to get started, but do we really need it?
Do they want to move us away from here to over there?
Why have two parallel forums that will probably take on the same topics?

I think I'm going to go over there and register just so I can be first in the lighting forum.

Personally I think what's needed more is a lighting forum with conditions that not just the posters/ participants, but anyone who even reads the forum be screened and admitted based on the accuracy of information they provide...

But maybe that would drive away participants?

New Forum!!!
Hello Everyone - we have started a new forum specifically for Landscape Construction Pros like yourself.

Be sure to go over and check it out and get the ball rolling!

Is this forum restricted to contractors only. Is this the kind of private forum Chris J. was referring to about a month ago?

I missed it... and that other new forum seems to be just like this one with an emphasis on construction rather than mowing/ maintenance. No difference as far as any requirements to prove one is a professional.

James, should I join the AOLP yet? How is that forum?

Hi Gregg.... sorry for taking so long, I was just enjoying a big bowl of Granola as I was editing my new retail lighting web site.

I am far too new a member of the AOLP to be passing any judgements on its benefits, advantages / disadvanatges.

I will say that the forum they host is quite nice. Seems to be very friendly, professional and courteous. It isnt quite a busy as this forum is (yet), but the privacy it affords from Google is good, and there doesn't appear to be any loud mouthed, annonymous, name callers there.... So it is refreshing.

Most of the bigger, real, verifiable pros contribute too. Its a good thing.
I certainly don't think it would hurt you to join the AOLP...

Have a great day.

Maybe the forum owners could experiment with this:


[CNNMoney-Fortune, 11-7-07]

Software engineers told Fortune magazine in November that they are constructing a filter to eliminate stupid messages to online forums and bulletin boards. Lead researcher Gabriel Ortiz said his team had compiled a database of idiotic comments and that the new software would detect unintelligible remarks and either alert the writer to fix them or divert the message to the recipient's "junk mail."

Easy dumb messages to filter: those with the tacky, immature repetition of a closing consonant, e.g., "That thing is amazinggggg!!!" More difficult: how to treat sarcasm and irony, in that smart writers sometimes deliberately use dumb statements to mock other writers.
