    Default Do you think Panjo sucks?

    Several of the forum moderators have voiced their dislike of the new third party market place thingie. To be clear, this was not something I choose and had installed thinking it was nifty. Rather it was part of an upgrade. Many other forums use this so it apparently has a relationship now with VB software I am guessing. I don't know if we can deactivate it or not, that's something I will have to ask Arun about. But I would like to test the waters on what the majority thinks of it.

    I've never been on Panjo, let alone use it. Let me try it out...

    EDIT: Oh, pooooooooooooo, it's an app! And not one I would use.

    Hi Farasha,

    thanks for your input. I am just curious why? Do you find it not user friendly? Or? Inquiring minds want to know.

    Same question to you Darshiva, what is lame about it?

    Yes, because I don't see why I should have to register at a third party (i.e. Panjo) to be able to post a thread in the Market section here at bellydanceforums.net when I'm already a registered member here. And if noone seems to be able to explain why we should do so to post, I don't see why we need it.

    If it is a way to make the forum get more money, I'd rather buy a thread directly than going through a third party.

    I clicked it once (I didn't even know it belonged to this forum, I thought it was something separate) and it appeared to be an app and I closed it. I didn't really understand what it was. If it's a replacement for market place, I don't think it's a good idea, market place works perfectly as it is

    Salome, Daim pretty much nailed it.

    I actually found it when I was going to post something for sale (I think it might have been my melaya since I'll never use it out here in Nhill) and the fact that I had to navigate away from the website and sign up with a third party that I didn't know and had no notification of prior to the sudden 'hey, we're not in Kansas anymore' thing was enough to make me decide not to bother.

    I voted for the last option as I don't sell anything here, but I disagree with the bit about it not mattering. Annoying people matters.

    If I was having a clear out I'd probably stick things on eBay because I'm all signed up over there already, and post a link here. I definitely would not be up for being forced to muck about with apps and sign onto a third party site. That's two of my unfavouritest things on the web right there.

    I agree with Daim & Dar, I dislike 3rd part apps, you never know what they'll do with your info for one thing & often end up inundated with unsolicited emails. Stick with direct market place.
