private forum
 
we need a private forum around here. this way people can't look up our company names on search engines and find us posting here.


otherwise, are we able to change our ID or cancel the ID and start a new one?

I already took notice of this and thats why i never post my company name or website. I dont want to have to be tooo professional on the forum lol Its a little complicated but steve modify the way google catalogs the site but he will show up less on google if any at all. Not many people are going to take the time to really google you up anyways, only you do that :)

WeekendWarriorLawn 06-14-2012 12:21 AM

not true at all, if you think "people will not google you up,"


using the web to investigate a company or person happens more and more all over the world today. one should not assume that people in his area aren't looking up he or his company on the internet, unless he assumes his audience to be that vapid.


if the site doesn't spider, then that helps, but i would still like to see a private forum or have a way to change my ID around here.

SECTLANDSCAPING 06-14-2012 01:21 AM

Unless your badmouthing your customers, why would it be a problem? I use my name on all lawn care, truck, tractor, forums. Part of the reason is for a web presence.

Hedgemaster 06-14-2012 06:56 AM

Because sometimes it's nice to just "talk" to each other here without fears of self-censorship.

Even a lighthearted joke could be seen negatively by a client/potential client.


A "Lounge" section that is only viewable by members would be nice. I've mentioned this before, as we have it on a forum I moderate.

CHEESE2009 06-14-2012 08:29 AM

I love badmouthing clients lol.

w0283767 06-14-2012 08:35 AM

Isn't having your site in signature good for backlinks? If you are that worried about it just use two accounts and only post unprofessionally on that one. Or just use anonymous one all the time.

Having your site posted on other sites is fantastic, but not when it's a site you go talking about how you're going to price your next clients job.

If I'm a client, and I saw this website where my lawn guy posted pictures of the job I asked him to do in order to find answers on how to do it, etc... Just seems bad. Wouldn't you agree?

You: Sure I can do it, for $100.00.
Client: Isn't that the price Cheese gave you?
You: ... yes. *run*

Next thing you know, your client makes an account here and starts talking about you on the forum LOL. Eliminating your freedom.

You could see posts like this

Quote:

"Hey John, it's your client. Just wanted to know why you didn't show up? I know it rained, but can you please get back to me?"
If we saw a client come on this forum to harass one of us, I think the client would be terrified of how we'd all respond to him. He would fear for his life.

We'd write things like, "It's called rain (that stuff that soaks the grass) you stupid p.o.s, leave the guy alone and find something better to do. Sincerally, every other lawn guy":)

-

Then the client would go to the extreme of messaging Steve,
Quote:

"Hey can you get a hold of John for me, I'd like for him to call me."
-

You can then see a post in 'trials and tribulations'

Quote:

"John didn't show up today. I am very disappointed"
lolololOLOLollolol

w0283767 06-14-2012 10:35 AM

Haha true that is a good point. That would be a. Funny prank to make an account posing as a customer. If that ever really happened though you are right the client would get hell unleashed on them from the forum members lol.

Grass Doctor 06-14-2012 11:01 AM

that is why u have keep a professional attitude all the time, house, etc, not just when u r working.
