PLEASE THINK OF A NAME FOR OUR THREAD AND POST YOUR IDEAS HERE.
I reckon I got this idea coz I wanted an NT chat thread that I could enjoy as much as other posters enjoy Chez Marri, The Fight Club, prattle, prattle.
Here's the idea for a possible chat thread. Posters who agreed to participate in this chat thread would agree to being scrutinised on their board behaviour. The only people allowed to scrutinise them (both positively and negatively) are those who agree on THIS thread to be a part of it.
The primary goal of this possible chat thread is to read what other posters TRULY think of you. No sugarcoating, just the truth. I want to emphasise again that you would hear both positive and negative things about how you conduct yourself here on the boards.
For example, a willing participant could say on this chat thread, "Ben based on this post (they cut and paste my post) I think you really are too nosy. This might be an open forum but you posted here (cut and paste my post) on a matter that was none of your business." Or another example, "Ben on this thread, you were being superficial. On this thread you praise (insert poster's name) yet on this thread you ridiculed them..."
We could get much deeper than that as well!
I realise that I could potentially be inviting heaps of pain but most of us have been posting here for so long (Sanex included) and it certainly doesn't look like we'll be going anywhere else anytime soon so we might as well get better acquainted.
Naturally there will be posters who crash this thread to take the piss or chastise but I have a rule that would alleviate that problem. If someone who did NOT agree to participate enters the thread and posts criticisms of any of the willing participants, then we should IGNORE that poster's comments (giving them attention will only exacerbate the situation). If the poster(s) persists to disrupt our thread, I will report him/her to the administrators.
SO MAKE THE BOARD A CHALLENGE. POST HERE TO PARTICIPATE. I want to start this chat thread by the weekend and hope to get 10 willing participants. WHO WANTS TO KNOW WHAT OTHER POSTERS REALLY THINK ABOUT THEM and WHO WANTS TO TELL OTHER POSTERS WHAT YOU REALLY THINK ABOUT THEM?
