Keep 'em coming!

Although they would need to be not totally focused on writing, it's true.

(And Effers, no problem, constructive criticism much welcomed. It is a good point that we don't want to be too stifling with our prompts. There's an example of something a couple of posts along from 65 that should be more open ended. But I also see what you mean about waiting until you see it in action)

This probably a dumb idea but I was thinking about how this is about a sort of self-organising growth.

See F21537567?thread=8263104&skip=71&show=1

1. Encouraging people who don't know about h2g2 to join - for instance the library challenges etc earlier. (to 'grow' into the community)

2. Encouraging newbies to contribute - so having an ongoing competition aimed specifically at newbies. (to 'grow' the community)

3. Encouraging established researchers to contribute something different to their usual work - something that we can all get involved in and would help tie us together as a community. (to 'cross-pollinate' established lines)



So how about "Seeds"?

smiley - cheerup <--- look what I grew.

Feeds, seeds and weeds?

Hmmm. Maybe not.

Yeah, there'll be a lorra lorra weeding to be done there.

What you write today makes us "Ooh", "Aah", "Whehay"
and, mayhap, there too.

I like the "Seeds" suggestion. When I was trying to keep the momentum going in writing for the Guide I used the phrase "help 'Grow the Guide'


and just to clarify - we're asking for a _name for the Feature on h2g2_ which will be a small part of the Foundation's proposed work: ie the Foundation will support many initiatives in communication throughout the whole world - not just confined perhaps to literary pursuits perhaps. It's difficult to explain in a short sentence - but it won't be confined to h2g2 alone. What we're asking for is a name from you creative people.

What should we call the area on h2g2:
smiley - biro that focuses on developing literacy
smiley - birohelps people become better writers
smiley - birolinks to other areas of h2g2 such as the Post and The Guide ( maybe the Unified Guide eventually)
smiley - biro that supports people who're writing in English as an additional language
smiley - biro also includes other media, audio and visual to communicate.


Perhaps if the word [challenge] is changed for the word [prompt] or [support] this may help set the parameters for what we're looking for. The bottom line is that in designing our new home, we need a hook to hang this new space on. Perhaps at the moment we should just label it "Under Construction"

I think a name needs to say *what* it is, and why you should subscribe to it.

Well maybe Z - but then why is Orange the name of a mobile phone company? smiley - laugh Sometimes the name needs to be something that touches us at a subconscious level.

Merely a number


Or the plural form:

The Gardens.

I'd vote against gardening.

Not because the metaphor's not good - but if you want to get an international crowd, beware metaphors.

I'm betting 'The Garden' will make people think you're giving advice on how to plant petunias. smiley - whistle

Try to stick to something that involves communication. (I know, flowers speak to you: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ThWcli3QtX4 )

If you want something in the imperative, how about "assignments"?
