'effects for sale' forum - terms and conditions?

Recommended Posts

why is the 'effects for sale' forum displaying a massive list of rules and regulations at the top of each page?
can't seem to make it go away.

It was an experiment to see if we could find a way of making the T&Cs more obvious. :)

If it's any consolation, I can't make it go away either. :D

Why just the effects forum?

As an experiment, it's failed. File under 'stupid idea'. Please remove it immediately.

I noticed it, assumed it was an error and moved on. I didn't read it, though. :)

READ IT!!! OUT LOUD! Every time you see it!

It's a good idea to have the terms and conditions come up, I've just had a re-read of them. The only suggestion would be a button you can click on to say you've read it, which will stop it coming up again for that particular forum.

That's not going to happen, is it? :)

Good idea - what about a tick box like you get when your online bank shows you ads under the guise of information?

Incidentally, if you let the page fully load after viewing an item, it scrolls itself past the T&Cs area on it's own, or at least it does on my browser.

I'm using Firefox 19.0.2 on Windows 7 , and this doesn't happen for me.

If you HAVE to do this, it would be trivial to set a cookie so that the page is only displayed once.

I don't believe that it's necessary to inconvenience the majority of users in this way to protect a tiny minority who are too lazy to read the Ts and Cs .I've been on t'interweb for a little while now, and this is the first time I've seen a website inflict this kind of treatment on its users.

I still don't understand either why it's necessary to single out the Effects pedal forum for this treatment. If you're going to do this, at least be consistent and apply it to all the For Sale forums.

I've already explained why we did it to just one forum Pete, and explaining it again isn't going to change the explanation.

So... you're now telling us to take something that you don't like and to apply it to every forum? :huh: :blink:
