Recommended Forum Posts for August '08
1. Week of 2008-08-03 - 2. Week of 2008-08-10 - 3. Week of 2008-08-17 - 4. Week of 2008-08-24 - 5. Week of 2008-08-31

This is a list of recommended posts for the week from Sunday, August 10, 2008, to Saturday, August 16, 2008. The point of this list is to give newcomers a quick way to grasp what's going on in the forums, as well as to create a mechanism for feedback on forum contributions. For the forum member whose turn it is to compile the list at the end of the week, the template is here.

Ground rules:

  • Every week, we'll do some kind of summary post in the forums, to round up the results from these recommendations.
  • A nomination and two supporting votes will guarantee a post or thread makes it into the summary. (Those numbers may change.)
  • Obviously, no nominating or supporting your own posts.
  • Be sure to include:
    • A link to the relevant post or thread.
    • The name of the forum member who made the post.
    • A quote or descriptor to make it clear what the substance of the post or thread was.
    • Your own name, and whether you're nominating or supporting.

To nominate a post, simply copy and paste this code:

These are threads that are good places for new forum members to dip their toes in. This is meant to be a recurring feature -- that is, this list will appear every week, is the intention at least. As such, I'm not going to so much allow votes as accept suggestions. --Bry 00:13, 14 July 2008 (EDT)

Forum Code of Conduct / FAQ thread

  • I want, nay need, people to be familiar with the forum code of conduct, even if the FAQs are a mess at the moment. --Bry 00:13, 14 July 2008 (EDT)

Introduce Yourself

  • I definitely think this is a great thread to start off, and I really enjoy hearing what people have to say about themselves -- the danger is that people may expect that they have to read every previous post in the (quite lengthy) thread. --Bry 00:13, 14 July 2008 (EDT)

Favorite Songs List

  • Yes, I've just nominated three threads I started. And yes, that's specifically against the rules I myself set out at the top of the page. I'd even suggest the "Favorite JoCo moments?" thread, if I didn't think that was pushing it. But I really think this one needs to be in, because every JoCo fan can at least talk about songs they like, can't they? --Bry 00:13, 14 July 2008 (EDT)

How did you discover JoCo?

  • Here's another thing that every newbie can talk about, and I always love hearing what paths they took (not to mention it's interesting to see ways that we might be able to spread the Gospel a little). --Bry 00:13, 14 July 2008 (EDT)
