    Paid Forum Posts For Tough Topic

    I just started a forum for users to discuss network topics. This is a fairly restrictive and tough topic. Would I benefit from paid posters or am I better off looking for people who might be interested in joining the site?

    Thanks!

    TelecommunicationsTalk and Networks are really two different things. If I was looking for networking info and saw a site called TelecommunicationsTalk I would move on. As for the topic if you hire posters they better be technical.

    Really? That is quite interesting.

    If you were looking for information on Promoting your website and saw a site named SitePoint, would you move on?

    Telecommunications covers a wide array of topics in which Networking happens to be one of them. In fact, I pulled the term Telecommunications from Cisco's website when I was researching names for the site. Had NetworkTalk.com been available, I would have used it.

    When searching for jobs online, the category Telecommunications tends to have the Network Engineer positions, so I went with it. Besides, the site does cover topics in Telecommunications Standards and Regulations.

    Anyway, back on topic. I have two opinions split down the middle. Does anyone else have any thoughts?

    Thanks!

    Yea... that's not even similar. If I was promoting a website and I saw a site called telecommunicationstalk, then yes I would move on.

    Anyway your right in that Telecommunications covers a wide variety of things, and it would cover networking... As in IT person I have always separated the two. But if you were in the industry I guess they would go together. Anyway....

    There is also the other side of this issue.

    When you hear the phrase Network Admin, what do you think of? Most of the time people expect it to be a Windows Admin that knows some networking. As a Network Engineer, I think it is a very misleading title. I don't do windows.

    Oh well, just like apples and oranges. They are both different but the same and only one is really good for beaning someone in the head.
