well, that's a tough call. This DEK1 thread only got about 170,000 views over 75 pages and 3.5 years, so from a marketing standpoint it may not be worth the effort Seriously, though- it's hard to know if this thread has contributed to the popularity of DEK1, leading to more sales, or not. It's kind of a Schrodinger's conundrum, in a certain sense.
my question to you all would be; has this thread influenced your purchase of your DEK1s? Or would you have bought one as soon as you found out they were available, regardless?
do you guys want a DEK2 thread?
Theads like these where the friday sale nuts can show off, followed by a preorder I can non-stressfully get into (if I want one) are what sell for me.
User pix tend to show things in their element, different views, discussion, etc. If i don't like it, the thread won't change my mind. But they have moved me from "that looks cool" to "that looks like something I'll spend $ on."
The boot dagger, for example. I'd never have bought that (not useful for me at all). But daggers do show off what a shop can do, and they are wicked cool.
