Obviously it would depend on what sort of response comes back from everyone else, but I tend to spend more time on Facebook than I do here in the cafe.  I think there'll be pro's and con's to it and the last thing people will want is for the cafe to lose visitors, having said that it could also bring new members to the cafe.  If there's a positive response to it try opening a Facebook page a few months as a trial to see how things go?

Personally I think a Facebook page would be more detrimental to the Café than positive;  as for one Its another thing that you'll have to invest time in running , answering questions ect ect. Also as Jim pointed out I don't think it would be a great idea to draw members away from the main site, if I'm going to come online to the Café it's obviously because I have something 3d related to post/ask/request ect where as if I'm on Facebook it's easy to get distracted by conversations with friends ect.if you're set on branching out  Personally I think some sort of c4d cafe YouTube channel with a series of user/admin made tutorials would be a better idea simular to greyscalegorrilla. I've run both a Facebook page and YouTube channel for a community site before and from experience the video side of it did alot better , just my 2 , V

The Facebook and other social media stuff has been available for years. I just had it disabled. Looks like the new owner has enabled Facebook sharing only.

    Pretty sure it can be disabled as we're not seeing Google +, Twitter and the others. Maybe I enabled Facebook sharing? I can't remember.

     

    In the ACP do a search on "Facebook" or "Social" or "Media". You should be able to find the setting to disable it.

  • Guys feel free to try out new Envision Boxed theme. This time I decided to make Cinema like theme, just as someone suggested here. But I rather used lighter color instead of more dark one. We have dark theme, so little variation will not hurt, I hope.

    Really like this theme Igor, more than the last theme update.  One thought that did come to me, and I don't know if it's possible, what about adding a drop shadow to certain parts/boxes?  Something similar to the image below.
