So I'm looking at 222 registered members and but a small handful of regular posters. What can we do to liven things up around here and get folks posting and to simply be a bit more active in our community. (not that I have ANY room to talk on that last aspect...lol)

So what can we do?

I really dig the game Jar is playing with guess the pen, perhaps if we ask really nice we can talk him into hosting a weekly/'however often he dang well feels like' mystery pen contest. Perhaps we could get a sponsor(s?) to donate a prize or 2 to the winner(s). Jar if this is something your up for lemmie know.

I like the Pentrace Sunday Topic gig they are doing over there. I don't want to try and take anything away from any other sites, but I think a weekly (weekend?) theme is awesome. Rather than a single day, where people are trying to rush to get this or that done, they would have a few soild days to finally get those pics taken and not miss out or simply not post because they got them taken a day or 3 late. Heck, unlike PT, this board doesn't scroll off, we could simply keep adding new pics as we add them to our collections or something similar.

Thats pretty much all I have, a couple of borrowed ideas, what 'chall got thats better & original? I'm open to any and all suggestions.

Who knows, we might even be able to get Clif Clavin to join in.

"Well..Uh, Ya know Normie. The ancient Mesopotamians were the first peoples to come up with the traditional 'night at the pub' concept. It seems that ..uh archaeologists have found evidence of the first 'night out at the pub with the fellas when they dug up the first poker table, box of cigars and amphoras full of wine"

lol.

I'm down for a regular chat night.
