Oh man, that's gonna throw off my finely planned alphabetical list!!!

Before I add Tasmania, could I see a show of hands --  how many Tasmanians do we have here?

Tasmania is part of Australia, but if you want to count them, a hand count is more accurate than a head count (in joke).

Everyone,
It's time to re-emphasize the International Representation poll.

The majority of members continue to come from the US, but I have watched the number of people registering from Europe, Australia, Latin America, and Asia grow steadily in recent months.  Based on IP stats coming in from my Web host, there are many more members from around the world than are reflected in the poll numbers.  At this posting, only 215 people have voted in the poll.  That's only about 6% of our members!

Why am I bringing this up now?  Well, so far, Festool USA has carried the entire burden of answering member questions, even when those members are from outside the US.  I want to put some friendly pressure on European, Australian, Asian, and Latin American Festool branches to have more of a presence here, as members from those regions come to the forum asking good questions and seeking help. 

It would help justify the need for more international support if we showed international representation through higher poll numbers.

So, if you have not voted in the International Representation poll, please do so now!

Thanks,
Matthew

  Can't you display the total number of members near the number of voters,
 
  Of course, it would be best if that information is automatically extracted by a shell
  script running regularly on the server (or a similar idea). Automation is the only
  sure way of getting information

It's been a while since I registered, so please forgive me if it already works this way.

As part of the process when someone registers, automatically send a Private Message to them with a link to the Int'l Rep poll.

I'm talking PM, not the confirmation email.

'Course, they could ignore it.

  • 230 members have voted in this poll.

That's only about 6%!  If you haven't voted, please do it now.  We need to know...

Matthew,

I'd guess that of that 3763 members, an awful lot of them don't check the site regularly. Why don't you send out an e-mail to all members, reminding them that the FOG is here, and asking them to complete the poll. I doubt very much that the 230 of us who've completed it would mind getting a reminder for something we've already done!

You could also add a banner near the top of the page asking people the same (If memory serves, I think you had one for a while before you changed the look of the site).

You might at the same time want to ask members to fill out their profile information more fully.

Also, you have England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland as options, but not Northern Ireland (which anyone from NI or the RoI will tell you is quite different!!!).

mathew.  there is a very simple reason why uk members ask questions here ................... its Festool UK themselves


they dont answer emails


IF festool uk do answer questions............ its done unofficialy and  "off the record"

if a regional manager contacts you know you are going to get an answer.... WRONG.... not in the case of festool uk

it took festool uk 3 weeks to give me a rubbish answer, festool usa's ceo christian o pm'd me directly and got me THE answer within a few days



festool uks website is dire, it has no tips or information like the usa site

it is more difficult to navigate than it should be and the poor search facility makes it even more difficult

it took nearly 3 years before festool uk had a uk website

AND festool uks website................ its done in germany and they dont keep it up to date

the http addresses on the festool uk site are in german, and as of this afternoon the list of exhibitions and shows is two months out of date. the domino has been in the shops nearly 4 weeks before it appeared on the uk website

all the usa members know the kappex is comming and have known it for months, festool uk were slightly different

they denied it existed






there is also an element of uk culture involved here. it is not just festool uk that have a problem with customer relations


the majority of uk companies pay only lip service to it AND it is part of the national culture to keep things secret

why are english newspapers so intrusive? because they know full well that denial is a way of life for politians, companies and civil servants

That is an interesting point...
Yes, about 330 members have posted 10 or more times.
However, about 950 members (25% of our total membership) have posted at least one time.  And generally speaking, most of those first ones are good, inquiring posts.
I'm not sure exactly how to interpret these figures, but what I've learned is that posting at least once is the big step.

  Posting 1 message is definitely a big step forward, but it does not
  imply having seen the international representation poll

  1) "International representation" may not be an attractive subject.
       What about renaming it, for instance  "Please, let us measure who
       accesses this forum from what country", or something better.
 
  2) May be it stick out for a while on top of anything, as already suggested.

Total Voters:     246      248           what's wrong ??

It seems that the forum software can't add up properly, and loses two votes.

After copying and pasting into Excel, I reckon your 248 figure is correct, although I see that an extra member from the US has voted since you did your breakdown, making the current total 249, whereas the poll says the total is currently 247.

 I read a number of Festool related threads in it, a small scale version of our MFT mods,
 boom arms, homemade MFT, etc ... discussions, and I'm pretty sure the folks behind
them access the FOG but do not know of this poll.  Language could be an issue for sure

mhch-
if you went for a drive "down east", in the Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, even some areas of Massachusetts or NY state, and you stopped to ask a farmer or country boy for directions to a certain place, he would either say, "take a left up the road a piece where the Johnson's barn burned down", or he'd say "Can't get there from here", which means you're on the wrong road entirely, you're a flatlander idiot, and your passenger rear tire is missing a snow chain..... ;D ;D ;D ;D

Good point!

Matthew,

Is there a way of adding a drop-down to the 'profile' where members can state their country? Then in the 'members' page you could search by country? Obviously, there's already a 'location' heading in the profile, but since it's free text it's not searchable.

It seems there is no way for a member to find who are all the other members of the same country.

Good point!

Matthew,

Is there a way of adding a drop-down to the 'profile' where members can state their country? Then in the 'members' page you could search by country? Obviously, there's already a 'location' heading in the profile, but since it's free text it's not searchable.

I seem to remember we've had this discussion before....

The forum software is about to get a major update (for those of you who are techies out there, we're running version 1.1.5, and the update is 2.0).  In the new version, there is a system for adding all kinds of fields to members' profiles, and one of those is a "country field."  It will be required on registration to designate your country, and everyone who is already registered will be asked to add that information to their profiles.

So, yes, that will happen.

There are lots of other improvements in the new SMF version that people will be very happy about!  I'll keep everyone posted on the update, which should be happening soon.

The reason to identify someones' location is to best help them with advice. And that can depend on which country you're in, as it means you have a different HQ to deal with, a different attitude, different warranty conditions and a different set of tools that are available to you.

So if you're in the UK, no matter what nationality you are, just say UK. And the forum gives you the possibilty to be more specific and for instance enter: "American in the UK".
