A thread was just posted in the prt about appreciating the Person of the Day threads!<br><br>
They really are neat and I think worth keeping.. But there are so many of them.. adding each one to the archives seems a bit inappropriate.<br><br>
But they are such a great introduction to the people here, and I think should be accessible over the long term.<br><br>
What do you think about adding a new forum for them. Either in the Archives, or as a sub forum in the PRT. It would be locked, or maybe not... so people could continue to read and post to them...<br><br>
But overall I think its a great way to highlight our members and a great way for new people to get to know the old timers! And as we go along, we continue to add more to it...<br><br>
Maybe even set up a calendar where people can sign up for it if they want to?<br><br>
I dont know, just brainstorming here.....<br><br>
What do you guys think???

In the setup thread I have a link to them all. I was thinking though that as we go the older ones might be susceptible to being pruned. Perhaps a spot like an archive would be a good idea.

That was my thought exactly Grizz. Eventually some of them are going to disappear, and I would hate for that to happen.<br><br>
If we create a place to put them all, your post would likely still be a sticky at the top for easy access to them.

Another idea is to have a 'directory' single entry with links to all of the POTD threads, maybe in alphabetical order.<br><br>
I know that the one thing that CR still does better than KR is the profile pages. When you see someone post and wonder who the heck that person is, those are very handy. We have some of that capability here but it has never really come together. POTD will not fill that void either, but it could be a piece of it.

can you somehow combine them by week posted and then archive the week? or lop together by user names?

I think perhaps another sub forum could be the answer.

I like the idea of a subforum in the Archives or PRT. It would be kind of cool to let them stay active.

Some great ideas! Thanks <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile"><br><br>
So, how does this sound?<br><br>
We set up a new forum, as a sub forum to the PRT. It will be solely for the POTD threads. It would be set up so users could not start new threads. (Rich can that even be done?) But it would left so that users could post to the threads that are there. Grizz's index thread would be a sticky in that forum.<br><br>
Then, we would encourage people to link to their POTD thread in their profiles, so that if someone wanted to find out more about that person. they could find a link in their profile. (IF we could get people to really do that.)<br><br>
Along with that... we would also do some promoting of it by posting in the clubs groups, Starting Gate forum etc, inviting people to sign up for a day to do a POTD thread if they want to. (Maybe by pm'ing grizz to be added to the index thread? Grizz?)<br><br>
So, your thoughts on doing something like that? (If it could be done, Rich???)

I'd rather put the sub-forum in the Shoe Box area. As the POTD's are completed, then we lock them and move them to the showbox area.<br><br>
Then, as grizzly sees fit, he can move the POTD's to that area.

ok, that would be fine too.... Would it have to be a subforum then? Can we just add a forum so that it is more easily found by people? Not that many people regularly access that area and if they didnt know it was there........<br><br><br>
Just a thought.

I like the idea of linking to the POTD in the user's profile, sierra!

Oooh, me too! That is an excellent idea! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/forum/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Smile">

This can be done by the user by changing their 'web site' link to the url of their POTD Link (go to your POTD Thread in archives and 'copy' the full URL in the link box of your browser). Paste this in your Control Panel Options for Website.<br><br><br>
I'm looking at the newest version of Vbulletin - It will have some fantastic new integration and community interaction features (group chat with your buddies to name one)...<br><br>
Will see how it goes and when the right time comes to spend the money to do so, we'll look at it.<br><br><br>
Anyway - This feature is easy enough to do - but each member has to do their own.<br><br><br>
