Open Thread: What should the main CAP Forum look like?
Hello CAP Participants.
We're looking for feedback from the key contributors in CAP: All of you!
The moderation staff has been discussing ways to clean up the clutter in our main forum. Right now we have four stickies and a lot of closed process threads. What we want to do is make this forum, the first forum many CAP contributors see, look lively at all times, even between CAPs.
One of the proposals was to steadily archive our process threads in a separate subforum so that the first page is not cluttered with closed threads. Seeing a lot of stickies and closed threads can be intimidating, and we want to invite more RMTs, more discussions, and in general make the main Forum page take on the more general competitive flavor of Dragonspiral Tower.
But that isn't enough. We also need more RMTs, more Discussions, and more people stepping into CAP with their teams, strategy, and observations. Our questions to you are simple:
1. What would make the main CAP Forum less intimidating for you?
2. On top of that, how can we make the main forum more exciting and dynamic, especially in-between CAP Projects where closed threads seem to stagnate and choke the main page?
3. What ideas or projects would you like to see as mainstays of the CAP Forum in addition to project threads? DST has things like Community Create a Team and The Dark Horse Project to liven up its metagame and keep its participants involved.
4. What ideas or projects would you be willing to contribute to give the main CAP forum a life of its own - not only during a project, but in between them and as complements to an ongoing project as well?
These questions affect the experience of every contributor, and in the spirit of CAP we open ourselves up to your ideas, your talents, and your enthusiasm. Help us make the main forum a place that invites you and sparks your interst.
[17:53] <&Deck_Knight> If I Cite and Prune CiteandPrune's post, what does that make me?
[17:54] <Birkal> a citeandprune cite and prunner
[17:54] <%DHR> O_o lol
[17:54] <+Mos_Quitoxe> Cite and Prune doesn't do enough of either
[17:55] <+Mos_Quitoxe> can we make him change it or force him to pay damages
[17:55] <&Deck_Knight> It would be a lot easier for him to Cite and Prune if we made him a mod.
[17:56] <&Deck_Knight> I delegate this task to Birkal.
