    Forum Plans

    I thought I'd share my plans for the forum.

    1. A subtopic for every author & book on this site. It will be setup completely heirarchical so don't worry about things being crowded. I will also import all the current book comments you can see on the main site so the forum will instantly have many more posts. The existing Shakespeare and Orwell forums will be folded into this setup.

    2. A forum area for writing. Since so many of you write its only appropriate. The Personal Poetry forum will be moved here.

    3. A fancy system for posting your poetry and allowing others to rate/comment on it.

    Sounds great! That will be neat to see more integration between the forums and the site books and comments areas.

    Will there be a sight map, so we can eisily find these areas. And what about a section for school related help. Many people use this place for such... maybe it is utalized enough to deam such a section?

    I mean, there will be a folder for Shakespeare, and inside of that a folder for Romeo & Juliet. A folder for Dickens, and inside of that a folder for Oliver Twist.

    The fancy system actually is not going to be for the poetry forum. Its going to be a completely new site integrated with the forums but apart from it (same username and profile and all that). It will take the place of the poetry forum.

    Chris, i have some inputs for the new forum outlook:

    -how about if there's also section about hobbies. it can accomodate discussions related to various kinds of interests (like internet surfing, stamp collecting, sporting, gardening, cooking,,etc).


    -also when a new member registered perhaps it's best if the system navigate him/her automatically to a specific thread, in this case an introduction thread. I think it will safe lots of 'hello, i'm new" thread.

    i think thats all ..for now

    General Chat should handle posts about hobbies.

    Its not possible to do the thing for new members -- the system will navigate them to where they were previously. So if someone comes, sees a thread, and tries to post but needs to register first then after registration they should be sent back to that thread.

    I feel like debating this statement, yet i think it's best to keep my mouth shut.

    That's a policy that usually works but doesn't get things done... not like I would 'open my mouth' like that too often.
