just an idea... there's another board I'm on, and it works well there, but the board itself is structured a bit different (it's a fandom board but it's very casual and many of the conversations are not even related to the tv show itself)

we have a 'Random' thread that we start each month... it just gives the members somewhere to post small things, a picture, thought, joke, something that happened... but something that doesn't necessarily need or require a full thread or discussion... it helps us from having a hundred topics with only a couple replies each

This sounds a lot like like the Facebook news feed or Twitter, so it's not difficult to recognize why it's popular. I will look into implementing something like this.

the only problem I see is that stuff gets lost that may be interesting. The difference between forums and FB is the fact that there are threads. I like both set ups and its nice having a forum that is clean and organized. It drives me bonkers sometimes the way FB works. If there is something interesting and even an hour goes by, its gone.

Gone with the wind. FB is funny for that reason, and God forbid you search back further than a week, well then you're a fb stalker if you like or comment on it ha
