    It has become obvious to us all that this forum has problems.
    Things just aren't like they used to be here in the old P&W forum.

    Users are dwindling.
    Post quality has gone WAY down.
    Even the banners suck.

    What to do about this?

    We have decided to create a focus group to address these issues. What do we need to do to the forum?

    We won't wait to get a complete roster to begin the discussion.
    It starts now.


    I think we need to seriously need to change the focus of the forum. Maybe since the people who post are getting older, they are in college now and don't get up so early.
    Perhaps we should change it to a grilled cheese and spaghettios forum to me more lunch oriented for these people.

    THOUGHTS?

    You, sir, speak blasphemy. Oh, but this is where the future in-crowd pops in to sign-up for recognition, amiright?

    YES.
    If you do not join this group I will make very sure that you are not in the 'in-crowd'
    And you will not get a spiffy name badge either.

    I think we need a Breakfast Tournament of Champions that can coincide with March Madness.

    Now, Wheaties claims to be the Breakfast of Champions, but I really think Pancakes or perhaps Waffles could take them down this year.

    Yeah but that's Breakfast of Champions. Maybe Champions have really bad taste in breakfasts.

    This is why we need a focus group!

    You could always serve me some Pancakes and/or waffles. Then I might be more inclined to talk about them.

    I have a number of extremely serious questions to ask about the way I am running this forum, and it's future, and won't take no for an answer from other people.

    For example, when his forum departs for Valinor, does The Senate Floor intend to take on the serious pancake and waffle threads? I'd like to hear from the Senate mods on this issue.

    The problem is the waffle-gushers. I'm sick to the back teeth of every single pancake thread being spammed and derailed by comments such as "Waffles are better than pancakes" etc.

    It's ruining this forum, and the mods seriously need to get a grip [face_plain]

    You know the more I think about it, maybe we just need to give up on this forum and use it for something more productive, like that Just Chris Convention we were talking about.

    And then there's that problem about certain users leaving people creepy PMs about syrup.
    We need a syrup policy.

    You will need to forward those PMs to us, so we can look into them.

    As someone who has never participated and has never made a waffle, I think I am exactly the right person to come in and tell you all what to do next. Count me in, baby.

    Since Feb. 22-28 is National Pancake week, what if we make Mar. 1-7 North American Pancake week, then Mar. 8-14 European Pancake week, and so on.

    This will surely raise the awareness of Pancakes.

    Add me to the non-existent roster!

    Even though grilled cheese is perhaps my second-favourite food, I do not think that would attract more users here. In fact, it would destroy the character of the community that's already here! Sure, we can be a little exclusive of other foods, but Pancakes and Waffles has always been that way.

    EDIT: although I must say it is hard to read some posts when certain text colours are used. [face_worried]
