I will post this same topic in all the forums where I can post this kind of things..because I guess that this idea can be a begin and It's important that all people know!

I tell you why people mistake on QZ...

So many people everyday put on the most famous forum on QZ (Sharing The Music - Announce) a new boots concert, a new boots dvd..the most part reply in the correct way at the announce to show his thought, and open correctly new topics in the right forum...but others mistakes...and the "experts" get crazy..and here we go with offences, superiority acts etc etc.

Now..with total respect for people who have structured QZ..I tell you the only (for me) defect of this site...not the unkind people (they are in every place) but simply the main page.

Think about people who enter here for the first time...and read "QUEEN MUSIC DOWNLOAD"...they enter on this section..and like good fans try to contact other fans and create new topics (not for share but for ask)...and people get mad again because the topic is in the wrong place...
It's right that people don't accept those facts (especially when are always the same ones who get wrong)....but new queenzoners will keep to mistake..and I tell you why:

The main page of QZ according to me, have to show BETTER (because the voice "talk" and than "notice board" in the bar isn't at all clearly and easy to get!) the different forums and the difference between forums..can't you see?..It's obvious that when new excited fans arrive on QZ they get immediately the most "beauty" way for a QUeen Fan.."QUEEN MUSIC DOWNLOAD"...and not "talk" and than "notice board" hide in the up of the page!

..We must try to change this behavior..not with unkindly acts..but with intelligence..for example changing the main page!

--SORRY FOR MY ENGLISH--

alex :-)

P.S.: Again..I will post this same topic in all the forums where I can post this kind of things..because I guess that this idea can be a begin and It's important that all people know!

This is a simple problem to resolve.

People who browse this (or any other internet site) obviously know how to use a PC - at least at a basic level (or else they could not access these pages).

Every PC user (even first timers) should know how to use folders - or sub folders - or where to search/save for easy access.

This protocol is not used for spite or harassment - but for the ease and convenience of everyone - and especially non-English native speakers.

It helps Queenzone to run smoothly – or else – we would be nothing but a disorganised chaos.
To help protect this easy access, I simply suggest that newbies browse and learn how to use these simple forums first, before rushing headlong into launching numerous (and oft repeated) requests or topics. I also think it is rude to plunder from the 'announce' section - without taking the time to look around the site first.

This is not meant as some sort of criticism, but, if Queenzone were to descend into a free-for-all without structured forums, I believe it would be to the detriment of both the site itself and all its users.

Therefore, I suggest, it is up to the reader to 'fit into' Queenzone - rather than vice-versa, and I really do not believe that is too high a price to pay in exchange for ALL Queenzone has to offer.

Also, posting the same topic in all forums, IMO - is not the best way forward.

Yes I agree with you..I knew that when I post this same topic in other forums, I was "smashig the law"..but I want to raise this unpleasant problem to the ears of Qzoners comunity..

..anyway...

I want to say that a new main page with all forums immediately available, can be a way to resolve this problem! but I'm agree with you that when you read the rules of this site you can't do nothing wrong!...only a little bit more clarity and facility in the main page!

Hey, is your message so incredibbly important that you have to post it 3 times ? If it was an error (which I hope) why don't you click the edit button and remove 2 of the 3 posts ?

If people read those before posting, chances of pissing off "old" users would be a lot smaller.

You are new here and found it necessary to raise this problem? Why don't you run the news desk and the archives as well?

Who needs Richard or Barb? Greg Brooks? John Stuart?

AlexMax87 is here to makes things all better now. It's the second coming!!!

So what's your next step AlexMax87? Breaking the language barrier? Tell us what frickin' language or world you come from so we can all start learning whatever it is that makes you type with an accent.

The distinction between the various forums is as easy to spot as the "post new topic" button, and everyone manages to find that....

So even allowing for English not being your first language "smashing the law" and "unpleasant problem" is going a touch OTT.

Have a lovely day.

1. Because I'm not on an Italian site.
2. Because I can't speak Italian.

I wasn't being rude about your English, I was making a point about the discussion you were having.

Alexmax87, you are correct, in my opinion. The home page of Queenzone.com is probably not the best design for navigation.

Downloads:

If you click on "Queen Music Downloads" you get the "Announce" forum, where there is no sticky at the top with guidelines on how to use that forum, other than technical information.

Forums:

It would be difficult for a person to find the Forums from Queenzone.com because they are listed under "Talk" and then referred to as "Notice Boards". Not impossible, just takes extra clicking. I sometimes get mixed up when the term "chat" is used, because to me the "Forums" are like a chat. But they are not chat rooms. I agree that the "Forums" link should be more prominent and not only listed under "Talk".

In addition, the Forums page (the page that lists all the forums) has no guidelines on how to use the various forums other than the brief description of each forum. There possibly should be something there such as "Newbies, please read this first before posting".

Placement of this thread:

But I think that the best place for this thread would have been the forum called "Queenzone.com" - because that is for feedback on the site. Maybe that forum does not get as much traffic, but I'm sure that Richard and Barb check it.

Guidelines:

Also, I think that even though the guidelines are pretty clear, there will always be those who choose to not read them anyway (or just not follow them).

I've misunderstud you..sorry...I'm not here to battle with other Qzoners..I'm wanted only to post a thought (the main subject) that I have..but people generally have begun to joke me..all for a thought...

Fortunatly Donna is by my side ahahah..this is to say that you can disagree with me but why do you joke me?..this behavior happens regularly for every new topic (not only my topics of course)..


PS: DONNA HAS WRITED EXACTLY THE THINGS THAT I WANTED TO SAY IN MY MAIN SUBJECT..THEREFORE IF YOU NOT UNDERSTAND SOMETHING, READ ABOUT DONNA'S REPLY..

People can correct English all they want, but the skill they are so proud of is learned fully by age 10 or 11! Why do some joke about a person's English skills? I have no idea. But your English is fine. I understood everything you said.

And they are probably giving you a hard time because you are new (are you new?) and you are saying something that is critical. And you posted it in more than one place - and that was too much. Most people here check the various forums, so there is no need to post the same idea in different forums.
