Rebooting Comixpedia, Part 1: Forums
Submitted by Xaviar Xerexes on October 5, 2005 - 17:38
It's not ready yet (but still likely to be ready before the end of this year) but I've been working--when I can--on building a new Comixpedia. Some of it will be big, some subtle and some of it only benefits staff (lots more efficiency behind the scenes).
The forums have been a crucial component of Comixpedia, but here's a chance to give me some feedback.
1. Do you like the way the existing forum are organized by subject matter or would you rather see something different? For example our general webcomics discussion is split into art, writing, school, business and theory. Would folks like to have forums for genre specific discussion in addition (or instead) to these? What about serial versus long-form?
2. I'm inclined to restrict postings to registered members to cut down on increasing spam. If you've got alternate ideas pitch them here.
3. I'd really like to see if we can get some moderators/leaders to help keep the various forums interesting. If you have an interest in moderating a forum let me know. I don't have a budget to pay people but we can probably give you banners or other pluggage here on the site.
4. Anything else?
