The holsters, skins, batteries and chargers being discussed were specifically for the 750. This thread was more pertinent to the 750 forum than many others that are currently there (currently on page 1 of the 750 forums are topics like "Sprite Backup", "Vista & WMDC Hell " and "Best Internet Browser "). And you saw how quickly the responses came to the original post. A good debate was starting on both sides of the coin, lending valuable information for other 750 users out there.

    Now it has been buried and no potential 750 accessory buyers will ever see it. What 750 owner is going to wander into "Other>TreoCentral.com" to find out what 750 vendors and accessories are out there? So now it will be harder for 750 owners to evaluate the options they have to purchase 750 accessories.

    The worst part is that now we are unlikely to get a response from Seidio. So this is actually a pretty big disservice to many of us TreoCentral members. What a shame.
    On the contrary. Your stated issue affects all Treo owners. Perfectly appropriate thread move.

I was one of the first to get the crystal case for the 700 series and had the broken tabs. I got it exchanged for free from them when the new model came out. I have been using that new model ever since without any issues. Back when these cases were being developed and released, David offered a lot of assistance and answered questions here on TC. Unless they have changed dramatically, I don't see why we should ban them.
    I've had a similar experience with Seidio as it relates to the 2400 battery and original crystal case (which is still on my 650). I vote for no ban.

    The move really is no big deal. I just wish you would simply not reply rather than post statements that you can easily apply to many other threads in that same forum and all other forums for that matter. But no one is moving those around.

    No mention of the 750 in the title? You mean just like 31 of the current 40 threads on page 1 of the 750 forum? Yikes. Bad example for your #1 point.

    I didn't expect that TC would actually ban Seidio. But the thread was accomplishing exactly what I hoped it would...good debate on both sides. So why move it? Another leaky reason for the move.

    Another terrible reason because this simply is not consistently applied to all threads. If we used this logic we would be moving 10% of all threads in every forum here. The "Sprite Backup" thread on page 1 is one of dozens of examples in the 750 thread. It doesn't mention the 750 in the title or in any of the posts. Sprite is a software that is used on dozens of different devices. Or what about the "Chattermail" thread in the 680 forum. Or how about this one in the 700p forum: "verizon turned down the iphone! Says new phone due late summer!" And Bill Gamble, you were the first one to post a reply here asking for the story's link. What does that have to do with the 700p? Why not move it to "Other"? Is the iPhone a Treo? hahaha. It's just the hypocrisy that makes me frustrated. For the record I don't care about the slightly off topic threads. Because inside of each device forum we all form little tight communities and like to talk about tech in general. And also for the record the Seidio products I was talking about are NOT for all Treos. The skin, holster and batteries are very specific to the 750. And apparently the dock turned out to be very specific too.

    Again I don't mind the open debate, but come back with something real. None of the reasons hold any water.

    There are 3 threads, AFTER THIS ONE WAS MOVED, on the first page of the 750 forum bashing seidio. I think that's enough "exposure," no? Now there's one in a universal forum...I don't see that as a bad thing

    If it wasn't moved I wouldn't have seen it. Thanks Bill.
    I never visit the 750 forum, but I do agree this is an accessories forum issue.

    Well I am glad some non-750 people are getting to read this...even though I meant for it to be for the 750 owners. And I agree, if it just HAD to be moved (per the stringent standards that Bill outlined for us), then the "Accessories" forum would have been a much better place to move it.
    P.S. cute kid cadman.

    Thanks....
    you want to see some confusing forums.....check out www.dpreview.com
    there are so many over there its hard to keep track.
    I think that maybe in the future, the 600 series becomes one forum, the palm os 700 series is another, etc. Instead of having one for each device.

    My suggestion would be to only allow Seidio to post their advertisements in either the TC.com TreoStore forum or in the MarketPlace forum.

    OTOH its perfectly reasonable to expect/allow Seidio to post response to OTHER posters posts in all the forums.

    Hi All -

    I've moved all of Seidio's ads into the marketplace and asked them to limit their future posting to simple "product announcements" that will be limited to the Accessories forum. Sorry I didn't get back to y'all yesterday, when I acted on it.

    As for Seidio's policy of posting in our forums regarding tech support, etc, that's their decision.

    More thoughts in a minute or 10 as I re-read through the thread here. Briefly, though, BG was correct in moving the thread - that was something else I intended to do myself.

    Edit - I guess that's it? Let me know if there's any other concerns.

    - Dieter
