Facebook Fan Page?

Unread postAuthor: clemsonguy1125 » Mon Mar 07, 2011 9:08 pm

Seems like everything is going to facebook these days. Theres an old spudfiles page but it was abandoned years ago and the person with admin abilities is long gone. Would anybody be interested in having one. Ill be happy to start it if anyone wants. Feel free to close this if it violates the rules or anything since PCGUY owns the site. If a mod would rather, feel free.

I had a very low opinion about facebook, until I tried it. It's an amazing way to communicate. It's social networking. I'm all for a Spudfiles FB page.

Thanks for the feedback, facebook is actually very helpful for communication. Ill wait for a comment from the mods before I start on it, and I think Ill add a poll.

I would prefer a group, that way we could just use the chat function facebook has because the spudfiles chat is down

Meh. I use Facebook only so people can add me to events, be they spontaneous "We haven't seen each other for a while, let's go to the cinema" dealies or doing the entire lighting rig for a concert.

Other than that, I couldn't care less*.

*And no, I do not mean "I could care less" - I have no idea why such a nonsensical variant gets used at all. It's the precise opposite of what they actually mean.

A group wouldn't be to bad but can you use chat without being friends? We could make it private so I or the other admin would have to approve you, you would just send a request to join with your spudfiles username.

you don't have to be friends to use the chat if you're in a group, you just have to be invited

Thats cool, groups have kinda started to die since the new facebook upgrades but that might be good so we dont have issues with spammers.

Ppl from countries where spuding is illegal won't be interested in it

Not that it is a bad idea, but it would be better to fix and upgrade the chatroom. You might as well consider using skype - it has some pretty cool plugins that allow you to draw in real time, etc.

ohh now that I mentioned that - it would be pretty cool if there was a simple unit converter and calculator somewhere on SF.

Personally I dont really want to get into skype but maybe. I know some will not be interested PCGUY is fixing the chatroom in the next upgrade. A group or page would have other uses such as posting a simple picture of a new gun or off topic posts.

It's really sad to see Facebook taking over the entire internet.

Personally, I hate the site, though I still end up using it because my IRL friends refuse to use any other means of contacting me or planning events. It's essentially void of all intelligent content, contains far too much flash and not enough function, and is primarily used by individuals with less than interesting lives to discuss average topics and share photos of their intoxicated selves. There are exceptions (I have DYI and Crowley as contacts, they're about the only people worth talking to), but I don't see anything positive that could come from using Facebook as an alternative social medium for the members here.

The ability to live chat would be nice, but the Facebook chat function sucks anyway. It lags and often cuts out in the middle of a conversation. Why can't we simply use an outside server to host the chatroom, or start up a Spudfiles IRC channel?

Thanks for your opinions, seem like it's divided.
