CONFLICT

Again I offer a truce on behalf of the members here. First the problems that caused the conflict should be removed, all created by them. The best start would be to re-instate or allow to rejoin (if they wish) all banned members of this forum to the forums concerned, and in return we will do the same. There will be exceptions like the deliberate trouble makers at Snakeoilaudio, but even they could be given a 2nd chance. Remove bans on this forum and NVA being talked about. Then 90% of the reasons for comment about them here will go away. There will be no motivation TO RESPOND!!

Seeing as all the conflicts were created by them in the first place they have to go first - I will not hold my breath though :whistle:

:epopc:
This is a worthwhile suggestion, and should be discussed further. However, that discussion will likely swamp the defined topic of this thread. Could you start a new thread for us to discuss your proposal?

I have offered it over and over again in the past just to be ignored, they think they are winning I presume. I will offer it again in the future when I think people are forgetting how the conflict began and what it is REALLY about. It was Slingers post that required the reply, as if it was in our remit to solve it. Yes by rolling over, dying out, NVA taking on retailers and putting up prices - joining the slurp, EOTW being binned, is it going to happen - nope never.

*EDIT*

This sounds better and should put HFS on the first page of a web search but I'm no web expert...

Prefix the HFS domain name Artisan Audio? It wouldn't be a lie that's for sure.

Fair point, but I was thinking along the lines of Artisan Audio - The Hifisubjectivist - audio equipment and audio industry discussion.

That will do worse in search results than the original. I'll chat with you by PM later.

Please read this earlier post:

The 'Site Title' I referred to in my earlier post is a short set of words (4-8 words depending on length of words) that is inserted into the HTML on the site index page). It is NOT the name, url or description of the site. Think of it as a set of key words that tell Google what the site is. All we are trying to do with the SIte Title is to tell Google that HFS is a HiFi Forum run by NVA designer Richard Dunn. The Site Title displays when you hover over the browser tab, for the homepage of the site at, the top of your browser. The Site Title is also used by Google as the title for individual search results.

The Site Description is, like the Site Title, inserted into the HTML code. Think of it as a key sentence that tells Google what the site is all about and why browsers might want to visit. The Site Description is where we can explain what differentiates HFS from other forums.

Google uses a combination of the Site Title and the Site Description to decide if the site should feature in the search results for any given search request. Other factors, such as how often people click on your link, how long they spend on your site, and how many pages they view, then contribute to the score that decides how high Google pushes your link up the search results.

None of above is rocket science, and it is free to do.

Here are 2 examples:

Image

In the AOS example, above:
URL = theartofsound.net/forum
Site Title = The Art of Sound Forum
Site Description = Hi-fi forum for discussing any aspect of hi-fi; vinyl, turntables, amplifiers, cd players, DACs, loudspeakers, cables, supports and more.
Google has also started to display frequently visited links in the search results: Forum / Private Exhibitions / Analogue Art / The Gallery

Now, compare our own site:

Image

URL = hifisubjectivist.org/
Site Title = not submitted to Google so nothing displays
Site Description = not submitted to Google so nothing displays
2 of the first 4 results returned are for other forums (What Hifi and AOS)

Another way would be to talk about NVA on forums where we are allowed to be talked about. TAS claim so, but I see excuse made to censor us, so someone try start an NVA thread about a product you like or similar and see if they allow it.

Other forum like What Hi-Fi, The Crossover Network, AVForums, HiFiKabin and loads of others seem to be open to us. I am unsure about Wigwam, they say we are not banned but posts and threads seem to disappear, probably smothered and choked by a badly stained duvet.

You need to access Google Search Console using your google account and register Hi-fi subjectivist. I think it's pretty self explanatory from there.

Hifikabin is primarily a Linn lover's club Doc.

I've been banned from it for my views on Linn :lol: However, they may be open to NVA amplification cables and speakers.

NVA does get mentioned in US forums. Recently came across a thread about extortionate prices. There was a post referring to direct selling of high end equipment below £2000 and £1000. Three companies were referred to and NVA was one.
