I was, as always, thinking about figuring something to add to teh forums to boost traffic. Those that know me well, know that's always something important to me for some reason Smile

I came up with an idea..... I'd like feedback and maybe suggestions to help me fine tune it if it's worth it to do.

I was thinking of making a new thread topic called "Time Capsule" It would server as a journal for individuals that would like to take part. It would be a permanent fixture that can be later revisited for memories, thoughts, and even maybe be reminders on how things were solved from past experiences. It can be a really good thing to revisit a snapshot of your life later on down the road. Where you were, what you were thinking, what you were doing.... what you hopped for the future. I'll give more details in a second...

1 thing that tends to happen in most threads is the detours off topic. 9 times out of 10, it's perfectly fine and usually humorous. I'm not complaining at all. Some topics accumulate quite a bit of spam as well. Again, perfectly fine. I just think there is times, on fairly rare occasions that topics should stay the way the creator intended them to. Granted, there's no real way to do that..... but maybe now there will be.

Here's how I envisioned this would work. I would make a new section in the "get to know the community" topic. This section will be and remain LOCKED. Every week we will pick 1 person who can open a thread. They will be the only person that will be able to post in that thread. The thread will run from Monday to Friday. On Friday night, it will be locked. Then Monday morning, the next person picked will have their own thread. When we have come full circle of participants, the cycle will start over and someone who has had the chance will get it again. Their topic will be unlocked and they can refer back to things they said before, or just continue on.

To detail the idea more....

Consider this your "own" page. You can type what you want, share what you want..... and not have to worry about anyone replying. For some this can be a way to vent about their personal problems. For some, a way to share with fourm-mates things about them. FOr others it may be a simple way to problem solve situations they have in their life. Consider it a "locked facebook". Nothing sucks more when you have people prodding out of you information you prefer not to share. If you lost a gf or bf..... maybe you want to post something, but don't want people bugging you for information.... you will be able to. Maybe you bought something you are proud of and don't want people picking on you about it.... you will be able to. This will be a 1 way thread, just for that current person. At teh end of the week, I will make a post thanking you for your thread and maybe throwing in some advice or information if needed Smile

Some who have known me for a long time know things that happened in my past. I had a thread locked just for me to express my feelings.... it was therapeutic at the very least. Sometimes it's nice to just be able to express thoughts or feelings without the fear of a rebuttal.

As always, there will be rules.... but those can come later. The 1 thing is that this is open for ANYONE who is a member of the forums. This is NOT a clan only thing.

Ideas and or suggestions would be appreciated.

Like the idea Smile

I have another idea.. interview members.. maybe 1 every two weeks.. we can ask a few questions and then others can ask questions about the person so we can get to know each other better.

Pretty much, ya. You could write about yourself, post songs/lyrics/poems, say how your day was, talk about up-and-coming events.... basically, what ever you want. If 1 entry is "my brother/sister/mom/dad/teacher/wife/husband pissed me of today", then thats fine.










(for those who live in the southern USA, that example is of 7 different people... although , to you, it may be just 1. Hey Smokey Wink )

Firstly, nice idea. I think it may be better on paper than in action though, because some may not feel comfortable enough with everyone reading their thoughts, and some don't even like writing. I'm actually a fan of writing, I used to write poems and stories when I was younger (derp derp fag. Yeah whatever). But still, for those who are comfortable enough, it's a splendid thought.

Secondly, I liked that joke TaD.

Thirdly, Jeff, Josh, Joe, Jared. WTF??

I agree clip, that it's not for everyone. And no one will be asked to do it that hasn't asked to be involved.

As far as poems and writing... I doubt anyone would call you a "fag" for that reason. Maybe other reasons, but not that one..... We actually have a section for writers. Poems/stories are more then welcome.
