Hosting it on livejournal of all places is very tacky. If ur only planning on having the draft there and later updating the one here @ Gaters, i think it looks gr8.. (PS: Did i mention.. Livejournal is tacky)

i am well aware that LJ is tacky, but a) i dont have webspace, b) it was originally only put there as a draft for the mods to see, c) it allows people to comment on it directly without me doing anything and d) gaters would have been a bad place to put it (ie: within posts)

Yes, eventually it will be part of this site.

A normal thread can be ?promoted? to an announcement (messages found in the centre of the main page) by a moderator, if they think it is something that will interest the greater majority of the gaters.net population (eg: an episode available online, or a change to the forums), if it is an official fandom announcement (eg: interviews with cast or producers) or just anything of interest.


You can't turn a normal thread into an announcement. You can promote to news, but you need to go through the mod panel to do an announcement.

Instead of linking to an outside site, you should make the FAQ an announcement. Maybe that will let you bypass the word limit.

Well, given that I am relatively new to this kind of thing, I think the FAQ was great! - Not having been on any other sites/forums etc and a complete techno nerd, I didn't know what I didn't know, so the 'stuff' (my kind of technical term) about double posting was cool, there I was doing it and not knowing how or why and too to ask, couldn't find it in the title bar FAQ. So my thanks, I will try and learn the protocols, rules etc but not lose sight of the fact that I think this is supposed to be a fun thing to do and a fun place to exchange comments etc.

A Who's Who would be good, another forum I post at, they have an implementation of a feature like that, the main posters who post the most have a kind of "This is Us" page where you can see all their pics, read a bit about them etc. I will make another example thing up.

EDIT: Sigh, can't be bothered making up a demo, so here's the darn url.

That's just people's pictures, JK could link the pic thread. (Haven't read the full thing yet)
I'll take this line in future, should be friendly enough.
