Re: My plans


Music isn't much my thing, movies are pretty much handled in "what are you watching" topic.

I'm keeping the Question of day; perhaps someday Petal continues that, maybe I'll do it, maybe it will be open to anyone to post questions.
So much depends on what kind of - if any - new people come here in future.

Happy to do the Question, but it might not be daily! I let it lapse through lack of inspiration but yes, maybe it's time to generate some new thoughts and prompt some discussion.

I agree about the 'Happy happy' boards. While Paradise has a Hi/hello thread for that I can not STAND boards that won't allow a bit of 'outside the box' thinking.

Re: My plans


But you have to admit all the "how are you" is large part of our forum activity. No reason to look that down, as long as board has room for other things.

Re: My plans


I think a focus of every board should at least be partly concerned with actually having a purpose. If you are just going to chat about what you are going to do with your day, or what you had for breakfast, the forum is never really going to kick off in any sort of direction.

Re:


That's sort of what I meant Solo. You need a place for folks to say hi but you also need something that makes them want to come back the next day.

Re:


Yep. Discussions about the things that people argue about do get people coming back. The problem is moderating the discussion without being too strict but also not letting trolls and spammers to get away with deliberating causing fights. Unfortunately getting a serious discussion going in Runboards is a little difficult because it seems that most board owners only want to talk about fluff.

Re: My plans


AG is to have two major themes by me: sports and gaming - though on both my own tastes are in a way limited - and besides the general talk areas.

Re: My plans


As I suggested in PL, I'm expanding the photo forum to writing. This is meant for fiction, discussions covers anything serious.
I'll have to make a rules topic on that.

I think I'll soon be posting my old short stories.
(Bec may remember those.)
