Just before slipping off to sleep, I was thinking about the 'Threddies' board, and how it's rarely used. And then it hit me.. I think we should add something to that area.
My idea is this.. a board named 'This Magic Moment'. The concept behind this board isn't to showcase threads, per se.. but moments. Individual posts. For example, you are reading a thread, and something just leaps out at you.. a juicy plot twist, a particularly stunning bit of writing.. a lasting image. Whatever the case would be.
If this board existed, you could then go there, and post a thread about it. The format would be to post it under the name of the thread, and to link TO the thread.. then to discuss what you liked about that post, or the thread, or what have you.
The threads in the threddies, for example.. there are many more people reading about those threads than just the authors, in most cases. So.. why not a place to discuss them? At the very least, it would help build a sense of community, by bringing good writing to other people's attention.. getting people to read each other's work. Things they might have missed.
If it were me choosing where to put this, in your board structure.. I'd take 'Threddies' and 'Magic Moments' and make them subforums of one master category.. um.. no idea what that would be called at the moment, but I wouldn't have to make that decision.
What does everyone think?
