I would doubt the LJ community will change too much. This *may* divert a lot of the kvetchers off CGP, but it doesn't feel like it serves quite the same purpose as LJ, to me. Then again, I haven't blogged about Scrabble in so long that it hardly matters for me. :/

A Topic for other online resources, game sites, etc.?
Not sure where these would fit -- taking suggestions.
verbalobe wrote:An indication of how important it can be to maintain an off-topic area as a means of developing and growing traffic and loyalty. For most large successful forums, people want to go every day, because it is the topic they are obsessive about, but while there they will naturally want to include more about their whole lives. This IMO is a sign of vitality and not to be discouraged

OK, three questions: Might a forum for ISC be a subforum under general online play, with other subforums being established as needed for Lexulous, Scramble, PathWords, the Pixie Pit, etc.?
[Personally, I have no problem with ISC blacklisting, coming from the old school of Internet "frontier justice" (the original MAPS RBL, the Usenet Death Penalty, etc.). It was fun to watch what happened when people who abused the Internet incurred the wrath of the people who RAN the Internet.]

That might open up a can of worms, since so many are non-NSA players, and they might keep the moderators busy.

I want people to come here who aren't already part of the NSA scene. More is better.

I wanted to talk to Sherrie first. Haven't heard back yet. I am ambivalent about "poaching".

I do have one question: Is there a way to set my preferences so that I can see "all" the posts on one topic on one page? Or at least, is there a way to see more than 10 on one page, so that I don't have to click through 50 pages if there are 500 posts on a topic? Thanks.

i think this is a good idea too -- it's fairly easy to change the number of posts per page to like 20 or 30.
