You know how in the blog category there is a stickie where you can show off your blog? Well, maybe Lynn OR a moderator can turn my post into a stickie so that we can show off our forums. Also... feel free to share the links of forums that you participate on every day OR every week...

Lynn ~ can we make this a stickie? What do you think? Ok, here are the forums....

:arrow: Shut Up n' Post!
This is a little project of mine that is near and dear to my heart. Perhaps ya'll have those projects that mean the world to you. This is one of mine. If there were no way to earn money on the internet this would be something that I would still do. This is why I think it's important for people to create blogs n' things that mean something to them. It's not enough just to blog. You have a to have a passion for what you do.

:arrow: Mom Gadget
This is a forum that a very good friend of mine just started that I visit on a daily basis. I have been waiting for her to start such a forum for a long time. It's totally devoted to blogging. I think the bloggers will really like this one. It's also one that you can earn a revenue from because if you participate you are able to share your own affiliate codes within your posts.

:arrow: Zero Jooce Buzz
This is another forum that is of interest to me because it has so much versatility... especially if you are a blogger and need a way to creat polls for your blogs OR if you need to have a forum for your blog but don't really have time to create one from scratch. I'm a forum whore in that I love weird places to meet new people... so this one I keep on my list.

Ok... there you have it folks.
How about you? Do you run a forum? Do you have forums that you participate in on a daily basis?

Thanks Lynn ~ by the way... I LOVE your new pic that you have up as your avatar. Very cool!!

Angela :wink:

I came across one earlier today that has the potential of being a really awesome forum. I thought I'd give her a little boost and post her link here. I hope that's ok.

Consider it done ;) Great idea!

There are quite a few threads around the forum with full lists of 'favorite forums' so I think it would be great if we could stick to posting links to our own forums - or top personal favorite vs an entire list.

I'd love to see some of the forums that our own Members have created!

Nice! I like the colors ;)

I wonder though, if the headline (forum name & descrip) wouldnt look better if it was larger... or if it was lower, like beneath the top purple bar that has the main navigation. What are your thoughts on that?

That's a really good idea and the type of constructive feedback I need!! THANK YOU. Now I just have to figure out how to make that happen.

BRB,

Just let me know if you get hung up on it ;)

I'm assuming it's something in the CSS I can change to make it bigger... what is it called? (I'm still in the infancy stages when it comes to CSS)

In the overall tpl I'm assuming I just need to put a couple of <br>'s at the top... right?

Thanks,

Angela :D

You could use break tags to move it down, yes - but you might just 'cut' it and then 'paste' it in a different place - below the nav bar would look good I am thinking.

I probably wont be much help on the CSS... but instead of using the 'tags' to put in the default name and description in the default font, you could simply include an HTML header & description and place it where you like...

I'd like to add mine here as well because I think I've done pretty well for 2006

In April or May of 2006, I had about 75-90 members. It's now Dec 30, 2006 and I have 654 members. All done in my spare time and being out at sea for 6-7 months since May.

Check it out: Networker's Private Forum

Angela, your yoshi2me.com didn't open. I'm already a member at Gayla's forum. As for Zero Jooce... I like the design but I'm not so sure what the objective is with the forum.

Anyway, I'm doing alright I guess for the last 7-8 months. I hope to do even better in 2007. I hope to more than double the number of members.

Lynn ~

I changed the template back to the subsilver on my Shut Up N' Post forum.

Do you like that one better? Is it more user friendly to you?

Thanks for your input,

Angela :wink:
