Improvements to the Forums

Post by Richprins » Thu Nov 01, 2012 7:53 pm

Hello!

As you can see, the powers that be have streamlined the forums a bit regarding our core-business issues!

Please give ideas, comments, insults and inputs on how to improve or adjust further! \O

Just the ramblings and musings of an old mind but here goes.

This forum is very serious. There aren't many "fun" threads. I also think we should have a few award threads. Like a Prattley Putty award: For the person who cracked the most (as in lost their cool).

Then we should all vote for the person who was seen to have done the dumbest thing in the Gallery of shame and bestow upon this fooligan: The Darwin award.

While we're at it can we add a few more like some discussion about which is your personal favourite camp and why. (I think this will promote some of the camps and share knowledge.) Pictures of the camp would be an advantage for anyone researching where they might stay when in the reserves.

Final suggestion: Like I get that they are "national parks" but I think the word park implies a place to play. Can we among the forum agree to call them "reserves" from henceforth? (Dunno if anyone has noticed I seldom use the word "park" for that very reason.)

Hey RP 0/* ,
Was looking and could not find a thread on advise which links into BH's suggestion of the different camps and accommodation, so maybe have something like this on the forum? ;-)

0/* BH and JN

There is a forum about Kruger camps here

O** perhaps some greenies could add some more pics here [O]

and of course, you can start a topic there: What's your favourite camp and why?

Apart from the fact that "intelectual" is written "intellectual" :twisted: I agree with RP! Start an inteLLectual forum, which is really needed here. Maybe there will be few "clients", but at least of quality ;-)
