My plans


Here's a list of ideas I have for the future of Anything Goes. Everybody comment freely, ESPECIALLY if you disgree about something.


1. The serious talk areas (Politics, Science, Debates) are to be combined as one. These have been pretty dead and I don't plan a big role for that stuff. However it's good to have one place for debates, particularly ones that don't fit well in the chat area.

2. I haven't yet buried the F1 game. I've run one or more Formula 1 games for last four years and I'm not good at breaking habit. But I will have to ask around this year if I can find new players somewhere or I'll have to skip this season.
(Unless of course Leo appears and/or you volunteer Mo, Petal? Don't worry, I'm finally accepting no for answer.)

3. I'm going to change the forum games area to talk area of the other kind of games. I have never been that excited about forum games myself (save a quiz) and there are plenty of A to Zs and such in enough forums.
As computer and video games are my biggest hobby, it must have a role on a board I'm running. Runboard doesn't seem to have that many gamers around, but also there aren't many active boards about gaming, so I'm hoping some people find their way here.

4. At least for first weeks or months, I will be stripping this board to minimum to make it all round easier for me to handle. Making it look good will be the last issue on my list.

Sounds good. I'm not a big games person but I'll pop in and chat :)

Re:


Kaunisto I suggest that you promote it on Runboard and comment on the changes you're making as you make them. You might get some interested people coming over to take a look at it.

Re: My plans


I'll do promoting after I get the board somewhat done.


Does anyone use the back to top button?
I'm going to remove it unless someone needs it.

Hi Kaunisto! The board is looking good!

Anything Goes is listed at Runboard Directory in these three places right now:

Politics, Religion, Philosophy - [sign in to see URL]

Recreation and Fun - [sign in to see URL]

Sports - [sign in to see URL]


Each of those threads is linked to the INDEX in their category. You can add on to those threads and say a bit about the board or you can start a new thread about the board and I will try to catch that and use it in the INDEX rather than the first thread.

If you want to post in a different category, I need to know which category you want me to remove the listing for. You can advertise in 3 categories. Whatever you want to do I will try to help you make it happen.

Re: My plans


Hmm... one of the two first has to go.
What do you think, Mo? R&F is very general, not that defining. PRP is pretty much up to you, even though I leave a forum for serious talk, I suspect that how much of that we have depends on your activity.

Re:


I will keep watch here so that when you get it sorted I can act on what you wish. In the category you choose to let go, I need to know if you want the thread to just fall to the bottom or if you want me to move it into storage so that it does not show.

Re:


Hopefully the changes will generate some new members K, and until we know what they like to do I would suggest that you leave things like RF (perhaps designate certain categories there so that they are not just silly alphabet games but more quizzes etc and general knowledge?) and the more serious dedicated topics, like politics, religion etc.

I'm finding that lots of boards are very airy-fairy and getting to know you type stuff, which is fine, and a good way to chill (as we do in the Scotsman) but if I want to debate something serious, I want to do it on a board where I already feel at home, and know that I'm not going to be shouted at or banned if someone disagrees with me! It would have to be carefully monitored, as it always has been, and you would need to ensure that respect for all posters at all times is paramount.

Sport is always good! Doubt if I'll do the F1 game because we're travelling a lot this year and I won't be home that much till after July, but you never know - depends on how it's structured this time round.

I've never done gaming as you know, but it doesn't hurt to leave it there for yourself and others who might be interested. We can't all visit and comment on all topics all the time!

Otherwise looking good methinks - you've got me locked up in chains it seems lol! (What song was that again?!)

Re:


Almost forgot, please please don't remove the Back to Top button - makes life so much easier! I use it all the time ... wish we could have a "Down to the last post" button too, but I don't think there is such a thing, sadly!

Re:


Yes, I agree with Petal about the debate/controversial discussion thing. Too many boards are about inane discussions about what people do with their day. Introducing music and movies again might also bring in new members.
