Actually Beth... my special Beemaster X-Ray Glasses don't miss too much - I'm hoping that we can soon have SUB-FORUMS included here - so that under GENERAL BEEKEEPING FORUM you may see SUB-TOPICS such as perferred reading material, Best Place to Buy Bees, Setting up your beeyard, and other categories like that.
Literally EACH forum could have Sub-Forums related to the main topic - this is an add-on hack, and we need to discuss it with Lesli. I have seen this type of sub-categories before in forums and it actually works well EXCEPT that you can get a bit lost when searching - it gets back to using the POSTS SINCE LAST VISITED feature which is the cure all to such navagational issues.
For now. If someone wants to start a ANNOUNCEMENT called BOOK REVIEWS or PERFERRED READING or whatever - it can allow people to post both the good and bad about books, without getting lost over time.
Actually, although it might get placed a bit further down the main screen - book reviews could be added to the MEMBERS WEBPAGES, BLOGS and FORUMS section since it has a Library or written theme??
Thus being called the MEMBERS WEBPAGES, BLOGS, FORUMS and BOOK REVIEWS - or something like that - I really don't want to make a special forum JUST for book reviews, I think it would peter out quickly, there are NOT a million books out there, at least not in print.
Just some thoughts.
