First topic message reminder :

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.

The section is up in the "get to know the community" forum.

Can someone besides an admin and Max check to see if they can post there?

Also, who ever is picked will be able to also make 1 poll if they like.... asking what ever they want to. Everyone in the forums will be able to vote, but not reply. This may give some insight to questions they may have and get a feel of what teh general public of the forums think.

If they want to create an new poll, they will have to delete the 1st poll 1st. Maybe later, if it's important to have polls, I will allow more then 1 thread per person and just merge them after the week is over... but we will get into that later.

You can share what music you like, what movies you saw that week...

It doesn't have to be about you as a person... It's suppose to be about your week. Thats why I called it Time Capsule. It's a snapshot of you and what you liked or were thinking a particular week of your life.

Tad, could you add a "tl;dr" (too long; didn't read) version at the bottom of your wall of words, please? It's not that I am lazy or have A.D.H.D, anything like that. It's just reading isn't mine (and maybe some other people(s)) thing. Especially if it's straining to the eyes reading a huge wall.. It kind of puts me off posting in some topics. : [


tl;dr: Add tl;dr, do not like wall of text.


(See? I find that it makes forums a better place).

use the spoiler tag function for your walls of text, and then add a tl;dr summary after it

ex:
jeje:
WALLOFTEXTHERE

tl;dr:
lesstexthere

forum code
Code:
[spoiler=jeje]WALLOFTEXTHERE[/spoiler]

[spoiler=tl;dr]lesstexthere[/spoiler]
