"One component in an overall marketing strategy", and clearly becoming a lesser one.I've got not problem with the placement of the button/link to access the forum as long as I can access it. It is apparent, at least to me, that IWC does not view this forum as an important market component. First is the the venue IWC chose to "leak" the new Ingenieur line. Now this seemingly unimportant move. It is called "salami tactics" - one slice at a time.IWC may actually be correct........... When designing a cockpit, the most used, and the most important, switches and gauges are more accessible than those that are rarely used.

Not me. I stand behind my original statement. It's certainly no big deal to me - even if the button is moved every day I'll look until I find the access. I remain concerned about newcomers casually arriving at the site, and leaving without ever realizing there is an active Forum.

Michael Friedberg Wrote:But, also --and here's where I may respectfully disagree with management-- I always have considered it a "first among equals". Other websites can have articles or do a blog, but no other manufacturer's website has a real forum, where a true community of serious watch enthusiasts had developed. That, at least to me, is a true competitive edge for IWC, and stands out in the marketplace. I was initially flattered that the revised website had a prominent link for this forum, and then I felt that it was deserved. This community is unique in the industry, and has a huge viral impact. Making this forum harder for newbies to access by definition will reduce potential traffic.
