Hi all Foamlings andd Foamanistas,
I posted [a couple days ago] a suggestion about this that I want to include
here too now [I wasn't aware this thread was still active then] and expand
on it some.
The suggestion was/is:
From Here On Out: Keep the Big Thread going, But, If someone posts
something in the
big thread that would also be useful elsewhere, then post it also in the
more narrow focused thread on that topic/area/matter. Do this either by
cut and paste, or by putting in a link to the original post [with some basic
info like: a short explanation, pg#, where the post is located - e.g. - "3rd
post down", with the date/time as further identification if needed etc. esp.
if done as a link].
It'd be great also do this with the existing Big Thread too - a big job for
sure. Perhaps that could be done little by little by volunteers. We could
start by getting a listing of sticky-type topics agreed upon, first off, and
then go on from there - - Perhaps divvying-up the Big Thread by pages,
for review, e.g. someone review pp1-30, the next do pp31-60 and so on
and post the relevant info into the narrower focused sticky type threads.
We wouldn't want to step on anyone's toes etc., as postings do 'belong' to
the original posters, so perhaps doing it by links would be the best way
for referencing the older posts into the narrowed focus sticky type threads.
Maybe a new sticky could/should be set up to manage/coordinate this
process if such is/would be agreed upon - pick a start date to get it all
started, pick the total page range of the Big thread to be done [pg1-XXX],
divide it up into doable chunks to review, and then solicit volunteers for
each 'chunk' to review with a sign up sheet, so-to-speak, to avoid
duplicate efforts. It doesn't all have to be done NOW, either, but at a reasonable pace.
If you have a house - you have a hobby.
