Maybe you’ve noticed that I’m posting fewer CC pieces lately, as I’ve been more than a bit engrossed in some other (immobile) Curbside Classic projects (See related post). But thanks to our new CC Contributors that have stepped up so far, longrooffan, Ric Wayman, and David Saunders, CC is still rolling and I’m keeping my head (barely) above water. They have each now written several pieces, and brought some fresh new voices and perspectives to CC. I think we all owe them a big thanks for their efforts, and encourage them to keep up the good work. And as of this morning, I think we have one or two more in the wings. But CC can always use more, so here’s another call for contributions. Given the insights I read every day in the comments, I know there’s a lot of talent out there.
All of this is taking CC in a healthy collaborative direction. And I’d like to share some ideas about how CC readers might get more directly involved in our content. How about adding forums to CC, where readers could post a few pictures, and start their own discussion threads? Some of that already happens at the CC Cohort/Flickr page, but how about integrating it into the CC home page? Here’s an example of a site that has both a feature article every day, as well as reader-generated new forum threads: http://gm-volt.com/ .The goal is for CC to be the go-to site about found cars, to share your finds as well as to read about them.
It would take some doing to reconfigure the site, one that I couldn’t take on right away. But I’d like to hear your feedback on that and anything else related to the site. What’s hot; what’s not?
I would be delighted to participate in forums.
I really enjoyed your article on the house projects your working on and would love to see more, but I’m thinking that would take even more time you probably don’t have to spare. I also really like that loft, its a really neat space. You are a man of many talents for sure.
I’d love to participate in a forum, Paul. I am also trying to find the time to write the definitive B Body article to post here. Perhaps I will be able to do it in July.
A forum would be great – it would also allow some off topic chat among the regular folks building more of a community.
I like the idea of forums as well. Also, if you still need any editors, let me know! I am certified to teach English as a foreign language and am also a junior English major.
Sorry, Paul – I meant this comment on the other thread about houses! If you can move it and delete it from this thread, great!
I can delete it, but only you can write comments.Sorry, but that’s probably a good thing.
Go ahead and delete it and I’ll post it on the other thread and re-word it a bit – I was pretty tired when I wrote it! Thanks.
