After reviewing a bunch of options for the website and participation of folks in discussions I have decided to do an addition to the website.
I have asked Chad to add a new ‘forum’ to the site. This will not replace anything in particular now on the site, but will be a new addition–and I hope one which invites maximum participation by readers and participants.
So you ask–what is a forum? Think of the Silicon Investors website. A place where folks can start new topics and readers can skim down and decide if they want to read a particular thread. With premium add ons to the forum I think we will be able to search topics and authors.
You will recall I was researching new options for commenting a month ago–I still have that in my head and as a potential project, but the desires of the participants was not as clear which way to go. With the addition of a forum it may not be necessary to make changes to the commenting package–we’ll see–like everything I know this will not be the answer to all problems, but it seems like a low risk option (i.e. if it doesn’t work out I can just delete it).
Depending on Chads schedule and workload I hope to see this change in the next two weeks.
