    I think the anonymous section is a bit different in comparison.

    At the moment, people are perfectly able to post their art/poetry/images in the general forum, yet very few people do. While creating a new forum may slightly boost the number of people posting on this topic, it would only be 'slightly boosting' a few posts.

    Whereas before the anonymous section was created such posts weren't actually possible, so gaining an indication of how many people would use it was more difficult.

    well trying it won't hurt anything! if it doesn't work simply take it down! or better yet have us vote on it! your reasons are ridiculus! the otehr sections do not mention to put your stories or art so we don't so its not spam!

    Sorry but I'm sideing with the mods on this. Although I would love to read stuff in the subject I don't think it will increase the post in its area a whole lot and therefore it's kind of a waste of space/time.

    ps: I really don't mean to be dissing the subject because I love the idea.

    Admins always do it that way, and it tends to work.

    But I also agree with Angles "just give it a try and see" approach. I wouldn't be posting in there btw, so it doesn't bother me.

    I love photography so if there are section like that I would post, but the question is how many of us wants to go to the section and see poems or stories or photos.

    Even not many people will post there, if alot of people go to there I think there will be more actions.

    Though, I don't see why it's necessary to make a section.
    Of course, I don't mind it:slight_smile:

    Well no, it would not be spam because spam is inappropriate posts and topics, usually posted multiple times.

    There is absolutely nothing stopping you from posting your art in the general forums.

    if it doesn't work, take it down.

    will it hurt anything to try it? i don't see any negative consequences that could come of it. is the issue here, "it might not work" ? well, no matter how much everyone speculates and argues, we won't evr kno unless it is done. and i don't see why we can't? what horrible thing will happen?

    I might like some more ways to sort the Home pages, like by number of blogs.

    This sounds like something that would be determined by the skin. New skin options, perhaps?

    We already discussed that and it would be more work than necessary. (Well I think we came to that conclusion)

    Code:
    SELECT * FROM users_blogs ORDER BY number_blog_entries DEC
    Or something like that, I don't have the slightest idea what the tables for the database look like... Then you just add the option from the drop-down menu. Yeah, it's probably way more complex than that, but it's certainly not impossible...

    Exactly. We would end up with several new sections that someone suggested and hardly anyone uses, and would then have to get rid of them and move the threads around. This is why forums add sections when there is a proven need rather than just because someone suggests it.

    The anonymous section was an exception to that in that it provides a different way of discussing the same stuff rather than a place for different stuff.

    It may be worth us having a look around "Chit Chat" and "Entertainment and Technology" to see if there are any obvious themes for new sections or whether E&T can be split.

    Full Spectrum magazine would be an excellent place for photographs, artwork, short stories, poetry and other creative work that can be published. It would be more prominent and permanent than just in some forum thread. There is also your homepage system where you could make a blog section for your creative work and perhaps mention it in your signature.

    I'll have a look into that once I have finished the homepage redesign. A couple of weeks, probably.

    humm, funny enough...that's what i was gonna ask for. i love when music is on poeple's page and starts automatically. i need music to read almost anything. XD

    besides, the music attracts me to read the person's profile...it's entertaining.:lol:

    We won't be having music on profiles for exactly the reason I gave above.

    I'll look for some more Welcome smilies.
