Title: Should we introduce a 'Post of the Day' or 'Post of the Week'?
Post by: John on July 05, 2013, 02:47:27 PM
Should we introduce a Post of the Day or even a Post of the Week?

This was mentioned in passing one day recently and a few members thereafter suggested that we include it as a feature within the forum.  It goes without saying that it doesn't have to be every day but I do agree that there are occasions when a member posts something rather special and they should receive acknowledgement of this in some way.

It would be our intention to tweet the post concerned on our twitter sister site which now has almost 20,000 followers and incorporating an acknowledgement to the member concerned.

Feel free to forward any nominations to any admin at any time.

Just post your best SHW.   8(0(*

If Morecambess & Wiser ( Shona and Outlook) get a winning Post of the Day, will it have to be heavily censored before going on Twitter ?  >@@(*&) @)(++(*

I find the Twitter feed a bit odd. Who runs that?

Whoever it is, instead of this:

Could they perhaps try this downloadable poster?

I vote yes but it should be restricted to only the Simon Hall threads.  The Lady needs all the help she can get in promoting her new range of stylish hair care products and alluring body lotions.

Could I suggest we give some thought to introducing a post/posts of the day as a feature and have it/them published on a special board and copied to the forum twitter account?

This proposed incentive has been somewhat sidelined but given the quality of some of the posts recently I think we should give serious consideration to bringing in a post of the day feature.

Any comments or ideas?

Who would decide which post to award this accolade to on a daily basis?  Some of the best posts on this forum might not necessarily stand on their own so if tweeted out of context to your 20,000 followers their undoubted brilliance might be a complete mystery to most people.

I'm not on Twitter, so I don't know the answer to the following question.  Is it not the case that people following this forum on Twitter are likely to have an interest in some or all of the subject matter on here?

A tweet can only be 140 characters long so for the post to appear on twitter it would have to be a short one.  It would also have to be a standalone post that could be understood without the need for following the previous conversation.  Or you could tweet a link to the post on twitter but it wouldn't necessarily be clear which post on the thread was post of the day.  But - whatever.  I'd personally prefer none of my posts to be tweeted without my permission, not that I suppose any of my posts would be considered suitable. @)(++(*

We can tweet any size message so the 140 character limit is not a problem.  The selected post would need to be a stand alone one but then most of the best posts are just that.  A link to the actual post would be included in the tweet by default whereby the reader could check out the relevance if interested.  As far as opting out is concerned that would be taken into account, every member has this choice.

That in itself would have to be decided.  Very possibly we could set aside a thread on the forum for posts of the day/week nominations.
