Members boxes

Recommended Posts

On Arwing Landing, they have for several years had something they call "Member boxes".

This sorts of works like a blog where each member have their own thread where to post things they experience from day to day and talk about things they are interested in.

As it seems the "Your life" threads won't cut it, I'm wondering if we could swallow our pride and make something similar?

What if you already have a blog?

It would naturally not be obligatory, but only if one wanted to.

We'll see.

I'm not sure I want something like that yet.

That said, I am wanting to look into social media type things, so I am not going to say it's a definite "no" at this point, but rather a "not right now."

Thanks for considering it at least. That is the only thing I ask.

I believe this will be "your life thread" times the amount of members doing the blogs. And seriously, if we can't keep one topic going on, do you think we can keep dozens? Like sabre said, people interested in this kind of stuff already have blogs, and there's a subforum specially designed to promote your site.

No offence, but I think the staff overreacted slightly when it came to the "your life" thread(s). That the minor sparks of flame wars that came, but almost immediatly died out again was far outweighted by having a thread which to share and discuss everyday experiences and opinions. My 0.02 $.

I'm of course well aware that many here, me included, have our own blog or something similar.

But it simply isn't the same as I had in mind.

A system which allows every member here to immediatly see whenever a new entry, or visitor reply, is posted in a box would spark many interesting and giving discussions, which is what a forum is all about after all.

that would be cool...:yes:

We never would've lost that second "Your Life" thread if StarFoxIII hadn't started that flamewar.

That just reminded me of this video there, Julius.

WARNING: don't watch it if you're easily offended, about everything that can offend someone is in that video, except for nudity (though the video is suggestive in one part), hardcore racial slurs, and shock images. Its from Collegehumour though, so its not "AHHHHHH" bad

And I think it would be cool to have a personal update board for this site, but I could see it being easily abused, and if it could potentially be problematic to the site, best not to risk it, I say.

I think the same.

And if the administration thinks it could be dangerous/problematic/etc., chances are it would not be risked...

Not that I have anything against it, I too think it would be cool, but it would be quite hard to control and eventualy trolls and stuff like that would certainly happen.

I'd like to note that he is banned now, which takes away the threat of him, so why not reopen it, to be honest, I have a small plan if they don't...
