I think it would be helpful and appropriate if those of you who are 3DFacture employees or representatives should be identified as such in some way.
Some forums do this with "titles" that show near/below their forum user name, others have the ability to add "badges". When those aren't available (and I'm not familiar with Vanilla Forums to know), then other alternatives include:
- Adding "_3DFacture" to your forum username
- Adding a "signature" to every post
- Adding the company logo to your profile picture
The reasons are as simple:
- Promote the spirit of transparency and full-disclosure
- Avoid any confusion over bias or conflict of interest
- Make it easier to know who has more authority when it comes to statements made about or on behalf of Draken and/or 3DFacture
- Make it easier for folks to know who to ask for help from
Additionally, I would like to encourage the folks from 3DFacture to use REAL forum user accounts, not the "admin" (evokes something too generic, impersonal, enigmatic, and big brother-ish). I think you will find it to result in a more personable, friendly and welcoming experiance for all involved.
Thanks for the consideration,
