I'm having a lot of fun on YA. I've "connected" with some really cool people, people I'd like to know out of the virtual world.
Perhaps a general Q & A that each person fills out so that as you get to know people you can read and refer back to it. I've never filled out the 360 -- didn't even know it existed until somone asked a question about it.
Send out a general message when people first log on that states the most common Q & A that received violations from the prior week -- make it short.
That way people will know that they have been posting a lot of "chat" messages, or others have been offended by the use of the language, even with the *+@# as letters. Just a one of two liner of what the most common violations were for the past week or day.
Add more sub-groups so that we ask questions in the right group. Many people will ask the question in several places, so since they are my contacts, I'll find 2 or 3 of the same question simply because they were unsure of where to post it.
Your FAQs are well written and tells about all the rules. Perhaps instead of my other ideas -- send the link to a specific rule that is being broken.
So many people complain about the violations -- are they really necessary? Except in the case of libelous remarks or blatant copyright without proper credit, or a completely offensive message to any group whether it is religions, racial, poltical, or gender.
To tell you the truth, this seems to be the best run Q&A place that I have found. And I really see no reason to change because I find valuable information, challenging subjects that have me reaching for my resource books, and stimulating my mind. That is one of the most important thing we always need to do -- stimulate our minds.
One suggestion -- it will stimulate minds, bring answers, probably research, and the participation will complete a project.
One thing I'd like to do is be able to start a story and have someone else add the next section -- then move that to another space where more people can add to it, but again move it so that parts 1-2-3 are continguous and sensible. The other story parts could be used the same way for other stories. The person who started with entry 1 is resonsible for 1story, and the other stories using other answers, can be assigned to other writers.
I'd like this a lot, but it is probably because I'm a writer / editor and like to experiment.
