I would like to have more opinion posts on the blog (editorials I think you call them?) and maybe you could also have guest posts.
Yep that'd be our editorials, is there anything in particular you'd like more of? More reviews, character analysis, that sort of thing? The guest posts is an interesting thought, it could work in as a form of fan art.
First of all, I'd like to say, thanks for giving us this opportunity. I really like the "By the Book" segments on CF, and hope you continue that feature as MJ approaches! I like the new threaded discussion format, BUT at times I wish there was a way to resort the discussions by chronological order; sometimes, I see there have been new comments posted, but have difficulty finding the comments because I often have to scroll through many discussions to see where the new comments are.
You're most welcome
Thanks for the feedback on By the Book, it's a lot of fun every time (even if we aren't always perfectly on schedule with them!) and generates some fascinating discussion which is probably my favourite part. We have most definitely already talked about it for MJ (as well as the fan casting series, although we'll have to go for a rename as Casting Fire won't fit..) so you can count on that one being back
I am not sure that is possible with the comments, as it may be one or the other, but I definitely understand what you're saying, I have been caught out scrolling too, especially with some of the older debates.
I'd love to have more polls, or perhaps even debates about controversial topics. Your site seems to attract many fans from many demographics, and I'd love to know what the general fandom take is on topics such as ""How important is the love triangle to you?" or "How concerned are you that Peeta will not be portrayed fairly in the movies", or "Do you see the Careers primarily as villians, primarily as victims, or both?" The nice thing about a poll is that the "average" fan who doesn't feel heavily invested enough to actually want to post their opinion and defend it to the world, can still participate. The nature of the comments is that people who feel very strongly about certain topics will be the most active, but that might not reflect the general fandom.
Really like the poll idea, and that is something a bit different from the other sites as well which is good too. I'd say polls are possible within the new theme, so I will bring that suggestion up
As you said it's also a great way for people to stop by and vote, or jump in with both feet and comment if they'd like to get involved - it'd certainly bring about some interesting discussion!
Update: Sorry to move the thread around again, just searching for the best fit on our boards!
