Okay this one continues from [here].


quote Superfast Oz
Hey guys,

First off, let me welcome you to the first community social forum on Neoseeker. This forum has been created as a trial concept, so the pressure is on for us all to make this succeed.

So what is this and what's the point? Well, the point is just to let members of the GTA community (and others, if they so wish) to hang out. Think of this as an expansion of a General Discussion, or just a plain replication of Loungin'. Be sure that this is not a license to spam, flame or in any other way violate site rules, but at the same time we want it to be a relaxed place for you all to chill out.

The GTA community has been invaluable to the growth of neoforums over the years, so we feel now is a good time to try and build on that and let you guys hang loose a bit. We know Loungin is huge and that there are smaller communities around, so it seems only logical for those groups to have their own "lounge" area.

You will notice that the forum moderators chosen for this place are ChiroVette, Steel Magnolia and Mishtram. These guys have proven themselves on Neoseeker, so I hope you all give them your support in trying to make this thing work.

Finally, as I mentioned this is a trial. If this forum becomes too much work, or is for whatever reason considered no longer suitable, then it will be closed. If the forum is a success, however, you may see other similar forums cropping up.

I'll leave it at that then, feel free to ask any questions here.

Take care.

Suggestion : Make an index of the interviews which have been done in the interview thread's first post.

Is it really necessary if there is an index in the first post as well as the thread itself is listed in the Topic Listings? What would be the purpose?

So that we could quickly access each interview from the first page. I think it's a very good idea. That way, when we have a fair few interviews, people can wonder into the forum and see exactly who has been interviewed and can simply click a link to see it.

What Jack said. I can't rememeber who's already been interviewed. I think Him and Steel but I'm sure there's more.

You know that might actually work. This way people can just clock on the interview link in the first post. Okay, I will do it after i am what i am's interview.

Maybe with a members hurt and heal thread with less members and possibly heats, semis and a final that lasts 1-2 days, so one person isn't getting eliminated every 2 weeks? I'l explain more if anyone is interested.

I wouldn't dream of insulting the God that is... me.
I'm sure Chiro would fare well though.

Let's hold off on the hurt/heal thread for the moment. I am all for forum games, quizzes, and other activities, but these hurt/heal threads always end up as glorified SPAM. If the forum gets a lot more active then I would allow it, but right now I believe another Hurt/Heal thread would bring an artificial increase in activity.

A thread that worked well in the FIFA 09 forum was simply a Heal thread, without the Hurt. There were more members there, though. This forum seems to consist of about five or six regulars. With that in mind, I'm not sure it would work.
