Here is my proposal if I am Moderator:
A monthly book club
Hopefully we could get 5 or 6 people to participate in this, taking a suggestion from a different member each month. Of course this would probably go as time goes on, but this doesn't have to be a huge forum. I would like this forum to retain the small feel of art shit. I want it to get enough activity to justify itself, I remember several occasions seeing the comic book forum go months with no posts
, and the book forum several weeks. There are enough people with interest to make this work as long as there are things to do there, and not just "hay have youia herad of the zombie survaval guide?"
Caption the comic
for the last two weeks of the month I would put up a 3 panel comic strip and run a contest to see who comes up with the best lines. The winner would receive a comic book related prize(maybe a comic itself, heroclix booster, action figure,etc.)
I would plan various other forum events also, such as, as suggested by chojin, weekly discussion threads, locking at the end of the week. I also think there is alot of room for writings here that just isn't being exploited by the right people. No matter who the moderator ends up being, lets at least turn this into a servicable community.
