I get sent interesting tidbits of information quite frequently now, and I’m thankful for that. But I don’t have time enough in the day to create articles or blog posts out of them. And most of this stuff is too good not to want to share with others.
Well, I don’t have the time to create formal articles of all this good content and you, dear reader and contributor, likely don’t have the time to learn WordPress (the software behind the scenes) in order to post a proper article yourself.
So I think the forums will be a good place for people to post a brief (or not so brief, as they see fit) comment about something they found on the web or that is occurring in the day’s news, and you can do so immediately without a lot of fuss and bother. Call it StubbornThing’s version of “The Corner” without the high fences and ivory tower exclusivity.
The only drawback to this forum software that I’m using is that it uses a different set of markup codes for text and links. But if you’ve used forum software before (and there is plenty of it out there) which uses brackets “[” instead of carets “<” for its formatting codes, you probably already know what to do. If not, I’ll try post a help chart when I get the time.
And I *think* you don’t have to be registered with the site in order to post in the forum, including creating a new topic. (Okay…I just double-checked that…you don’t have to be registered although you’ll be offer at “Capcha” thingie which will help keep the spambots at bay.)
You’ll also note that on the right sidebar of all the non-forum pages that there is a list of the most recent forum posts, so you can track breaking news this way. Have fun.
