Hey everyone!

Even though I don't post very often, I want you to know that I am paying attention. There are some good ideas here, and I will certainly give them the attention they deserve.

I'll talk to Rip, and see if he can implement Facebook into the site.

In fact, as I was typing this, I looked at Facebook, and it seems fightingarts.com had a page created at the end of May. I'll look into it more before posting the link here.

Thanks man!

BTW, I'm sure that you were paying attention. IMO the Mods do a good job around here--always have.

Just trying to see what I/we can do to help out.

It's very much appreciated, cxt.

My opinion is that the site should be user-driven. Your feedback is always welcome. If there's something you want, it should be here. If not, it should be taken out.

I think the ask ANY question in the newbies section is a great idea.

When I used to come here everyday I was afraid to ask a question for a number of reasons.

It all seemed so high-brow and with little skill for writing it can be hard for some people to express what they mean (though I did want to learn so read a lot).

There appeared to be zero tolerance for typos, spelling. grammar (too much pressure to perform IMO).

Its nice to see this welcome and relaxed post for newbies.
When someone has a question to ask because they have burning ambition/curiosity for their new-found MA the last thing they want IMO is to trail through old/dead posts from the past when their passion is newfound and full of excitement.

I mean who wants to ask granddad about physical romance? No one.
Advice and opinion needs to be alive..to keep interest alive.
Even if it involves pasting the same link over and over again, at least the individual feels the response has been made to them and their needs met.

I`m not rushing for once so hope there is clarity in what I say.
I`ve found in the past that I spent too much time analysing my answers. deleting them. leaving. Because it was all too daunting.

As we get older we can become jaded, intolerant and impatient when the opposite is needed. Especially in these times of fast fixes and lots of competition (as every dojo has its website).

I used to live and breathe for my class and then afterwards for FA.com. This place was a hive of activity and could be once again...

PS
I usually edit to edit my typos, spelling, grammar etc.
This edit is to say I haven't - sorry if lack of commas jar the eye!

I'm with you. That was a real turn off when I started in here. Never did find those dead sea scrolls.

I think we should have a Facebook page that links back to this forum. Maybe a Twitter account too? Not sure what we would tweet though.

We could try hosting Google hangouts discussing topics and post them to YouTube if you guys want to share your opinions on topics with a wider audience. We'd have to create a FightingArts YouTube account for this probably?

Maybe posting a weekly poll would allow people to express their opinions without fear of reprisal?

Also, I think that the forum is pretty well hidden from the FightingArts main website. I think the first time I got here was by accident. Maybe making the link to the forum more prominent would help?

The forum itself seems like it needs an upgrade too.

Folks

Starting to sound to me like we have a good bag of workable ideas....a good start anyway.

Whom do we contact to start getting these ideas firmed up and enacted?
