VSDA Discussion Board for Members Only7 Aug, 2003 By: Kurt Indvik
The Video Software Dealers Association online discussion board, currently open to all who wish to participate, will soon be limited to VSDA members only, the VSDA has confirmed, eliciting some negative response from some discussion board regulars.
“I think this is a terrible move,” said Tom Hannah, owner of VideoQuest. “Many members of the VSDA, including myself, joined after using the DB as a nonmember. As a member I have gotten lots of useful information from nonmembers. In my opinion this will cost the VSDA members and revenue, and make the DB less valuable to its members.”
The VSDA has not yet set a date for the changeover, according to a spokesperson.
