farraday... "I'd also like to suggest the mods include the topics of dicussion currently under discusison by focus groups in the MS updates to give people the chance to express their desire to join to the mod in charge...[i/]" We've been discussing various ways to "advertise" what these various topics are. There's a bunch of ways to do it. 1. The natural choice is give the people participating in a specific group an informational title - "AC Member: Swearing FG" or something like that. Like deltron's point with VIP-ship, the more people realize that titles have no other purpose than passing along information free from drama caused by 1 or 2 people concerned about e-status, then they become useful to the members-at-large. When people see the title, they'll be like "Hey, I'm interested in discussing the swearing rules!" and then go petition to be included. 2. Topic Update List - Posted to Comms weekly. Includes all active topics and whose maintaining the discussion. That way, any interested parties can read it and petition to be included or keep up with it. The beauty of keeping it seperate is that regular users can be involved if they so choose. 3. ModSquad Updates - Certainly can include some information about active discussions.
