Default Thread ideas, suggestions or help

I thought that maybe we could have a thread about some ideas we have for new threads. This can also be used to ask questions about treads. This could prevent threads we never use or double threads. (2 threads with the same topic)

I was thinking to open a thread for holiday pictures and pictures of other trips and excursions. So we can show each other where we have been.

I have 2 questions:
1. Isn't their already a thread to post these pictures, cause I can't find it?
2. Do more people want such a thread?

Anyway, let me hear your opinion,
and I hope this thread could be helpful for others as well.

i think this is a rather good idea. better than having x trash-threads...as we do now.

another idea: another forum! cause all these stupid games and stuff turn the off topic section into a mess. we definitely need a nonsense-forum to get all that junkstuff out of this one. so people can actually talk about proper topics...

about the holiday-thingy: i like it. so if it's up to me, go ahead. (haven't seen something like this before)

Yeah, remember the Think Tank back on the old board? All the more serious discussion stuff could go in there, and free up the off-topic bit for the random nonsense. I thought that worked pretty well.

oh yeah, totally forgot about that...
but then we'd need a think tank for the serious stuff, a nonsense-senction for the stupid stuff and the old off topic for the casual but non-stupid stuff...cause i like to talk about things like movies and books (not really think tank-ish), but dislike being flooded by threads in which people proove they can count to ten...

But, Love, I can only count to 9

As sad as it is, 'game threads' keep boards alive... It sucks, people suck, and I suck, but what can you do about it... "The Thing Tank" wasn't that popular, if I recall correctly

I like this, too. Threads like these would definitely be in it...
  • The Magical Vending Machine Thread
  • True or False
  • The ^<V Game
  • Song Titles Game
  • Alphabetical Bands
  • Corrupt-A-Wish
  • Violet Prison TOP TRUMPS!
  • Picture Counting Thread
  • The person above you...
  • The Three Questions Thread
  • Think Of A Song For The Person Above You!
  • Counting
...and perhaps ones that aren't necessarily games but also usually don't have discussion, like...
  • Happy Birthday Topic
  • Dear Diary,
  • What sucked about your day?
  • Good news... bad news...
  • What song are you listening to right now?
  • What was awesome about today?
  • What made you laugh today?
  • Last SHOW you watched/saw
etc.

Also, YOU WILL SHIT BRIX (Scary stuff) should have its name changed to Horror Show (Scary Stuff) because I say so. It would be nice if some of the grammar in thread titles could be fixed, too, and their names changed from things like "What are you going to do today?" to "What You Are Going To Do Today".

^ I agree so much! Especially the grammar bit.

Anyway I have a new idea for a thread, I throught it might be nice to have sort of a game, where you can get a (un)serious astrological reading.

For example, I can start the thread (if there is any potential) and the next poster gives a fortune reading for the previous poster some short reading about his/her fortune for the next day. Hope you get the idea and tell me if you like it.
I like it, good idea!

But... Shit Brix was accurate...

And I think I've suggested separate threads in the chat once or twice.
SO, HA!! >U

Yeah..

It would be better to seperate the "fun" threads from the serious threads, but it isn't something we can take care of. I think I'm gonna make the fortune thread sometime today.

Anyone interested to have a thread for discussions about different topics. I was thinking to start a discussion thread for fun about a changing subjects every week or month or something like that about different. Just for the fun of sharing ideas, points of view, or just to give an different perspective on things. It could be about all kind for subjects: fur farming, gay marriage or something different. Maybe some subjects where difference in oppinion is expected on VP. As long as we all respect different oppinions it seems like fun to me.

I was thinking, A, could we maybe make an 'Explain Your User Title Thingy' thread, and B, can we make this thread sticky?

A. Yes, but would it be better to rename the explain your nickname thread to also allow explain your user title?

B. If you mean this thread, I think that would be okay for me if other VPers also think that would be useful to them. In fact I make it sticky till I'll get some complains, cause it is useful to talk about thread ideas. Maybe I'll adjust the name of this thread, though, cause it might not be clear right now. I was thinking about: "thread ideas", "thread testing" or something better like that.

If you mean make the user title thread sticky, then I don't think it will unless many other people want it.
