Hey all..... I had some ideas of things that might make this forum more fun & useful (and more active), so I thought I would throw them out and see what you guys think. Furthermore, I was wondering if anyone else had some ideas for things we could do/features we could add to this forum? ---------------------------------------- The Content Thread - thread where people (webmasters, artists, authors) can submit art/fiction/articles for webmasters to publish if they choose. People submitting content must supply a name and contact link (email or webpage) so that the work can be credited. Webmasters using the work must properly credit author/artist for work. Perhaps we could suck up really good to the art and fiction mods and see if they will help find us artists/authors to submit in the beginning? Forum Featured Site/The Review Thread - once a month or so, a JCer's site shall be choosen to have their link in the top header. While that site is being featured, a review thread shall be opened for constructive critsisms only (link to which will also be in the top header). Sites for feature/review shall be chosen randomly from a pool of submitted links. Note: I will be pretty strict about the reviewing comments: no bashing....constructive critisims only. On the other hand, if your site is being reviewed, somewhat thick skin is required - I will not ban someone because they stated they did not like a site, so do not ask. In a nutshell: reviewers, state your comments - positive or negative - constructively. Webmasters, do not freak out if someone offers constuctive critisims. Deal? JC Webmasters' Association - Association of JC SW webmasters. Links of all members shall be posted on a single page maintained by JMT. Helps to draw traffic to all of our sites. Creation of banners and buttons for association to be sumitted by all members - the more the merrier - shall also be complied by JMT (but not remotely hosted). Button/banner shall be linked back to a home page (with all of our site links) explaining who the association is with a link back to our forum (here). ---------------------------------------- Now obviously, all of these things shall not come into fruitation today, but they are just some ideas I had when thinking about this forum to be accomplished in the short run. Thoughts? Questions? Discuss? Ideas of your own?
