If you appealed to people's massive trading ego's and their post was nominated for inclusion in the book, they would probably be willing to do a little editing of their post, and categorize it for a topic in the book. If I could get my user name, or real name listed as a credit under the section of text that became part of the book, I'd be willing to do a little work, and a little editing to make it happen. If it became a group effort, it would go faster.

Of course, someone would need to be in charge, and manage the work. But there is a way to make that less work also. Take people's ideas and opinions, then go with the majority consensus. If there is a conflict of opinions as to how the book should be laid out, etc. just do a poll, and the majority wins. Period. That way you avoid hostile takeovers.

The forum here already has different categories of topics. For the book, all you would need to do is duplicate that. Unless there was a majority consensus that the chapters, and layout of the book should be different. Then take everyone's ideas, and opinions, and filter it down to the final consensus.

The site could even have a forum dedicated to work on the book. It would be just like a regular forum, with subcategories. What will make everything acheivable, is a structured decision making process. There are known good strategies for making business decisions that can be employed.

Re: Suggestions

Hmm. It's an interesting suggestion for sure. Not sure about what would be involved in respect to the legalities of sorting something like it out. Definitely something worth considering for some point.

Have the people whose posts were selected to be part of the book, agree to forgo any personal compensation. If they don't agree, just leave them out. Or give them a coffee mug and a tee-shirt.

Re: Suggestions

I would like to see a swearing opt in feature for people like me who enjoy swearing ocassionally and don't mind reading posts that contain the occasional swear word. Maybe there's a widget that automatically obliterates most of the word unless you opt in?

Yea,.i know,dream on

Re: Suggestions

Here's a suggestion:

Don't SPAM your own site with recycled posts that displace real posts by current users in the "Latest Posts" section.

It is rather annoying to have to search for the threads I was reading earlier and the ploy reeks of desperation on the part of the owner of the site.

Is the site hurting that badly for content that you have to bring posts back from the dead?

Or maybe it's a not-so-subtle jab at the current posters that our posts suck. LOL..

In any case, how about making it less user-unfriendly to keep up with current threads no matter how unworthy they may be?

Hi,

We are not intentionally spamming the site, we are just in the process of porting over content from the blog section and closing that down. Sorry if it is messing up the latest post lists.

thx
