View Full Version : Blab 2008!

12-30-2007, 10:06 AM
Welcome to another new year of Blab!
:woohoo :woohoo :woohoo

In 2007 we added some fun and prizes with contests and the Gift Bag. Gift Bag not withstanding, the majority of the winners have asked not for bangles or books but for a free paid sub to Blab! :woohoo I was fortunate to find some wonderful new faces and perspectives to join the mod team. All of our mods have done an outstanding job to add fun to Blab and help keep things steady with as light a touch as possible. And Blab has been maintaining consistent forum operations; Chat and Gallery are up and running; and we’ve upgraded to the latest software version.

So where to for Blab 2008? First, a member poll and discussion! Blab cares about what the membership values. Then, increased service to the hobby community of members by using what Blab does best.

Through threads & posts Blab has accumulated a wealth of hobby information that can be made more easily accessible. Over the year each technical forum area will get a library, a grand name for a simple page of links to information shared by Blabbers that someone almost always needs. Anything from the best way to wrap models to artist’s techniques to how to make a jump cup. Select here for the first library page example.

Blab will soon provide just a bit of live show support, promoting that community-gathering talk-inducing grand old hobby standby. Details TBD shortly!

Would paid members like to see regularly announced times for informal Blab Chat gatherings? We did this once and had a good response. If there is interest, ON REQUEST Blab can post a "X-Day X pm ET all come" notice. Members can PM a request for a day/time announcement if they know they will be there to meet & greet. And perhaps other opportunities for some Chat fun are also on the horizon!

So – let the polls begin and the comments flow! Tell us what you think about the future of Blab 2008!

:woohoo :woohoo :woohoo

Some things we'd love to hear about from you: (see the polls too!)

What role does Blab play in your hobby interests? in your life?

What do you think about Blab discussions generally?
What topic areas & forums do you like the best? Why?
Are there any forum topics you would like to see added, or any that you don't think are generally valuable (not just to you?)

If your Blab moderating poll selection is that it is NOT "about right," can you be specific on what you would change?
