New ideas for the Forum
« on: Tuesday 18 May 2010, 06:04 am »
Hi Ghost! I really think there should be a section for Show and Tell. Like anything anyone has found at thift stores, garage sales, found in their attic or purchased. There is a topic in General about this and it is very popular! Let me know what you think.   :)

Yeah! Kind of a "Brag" forum.

Also, maybe a sub-forum in the Identification area for unknown accessories? (Combs, random pieces...)

I'll add them in later this week! Thanks for the ideas, it's most appreciated.

I'd also wondered if an 80's/90's TV board would be fun, to reminisce about our favourite children's TV programmes or pick peoples brains for names of long forgotten shows. And maybe a Boys Toys section. What do you think?

Both are great ideas Ghost! I really like the TV idea since I have a show right now on my mind and cannot remember the name of it. You should make it a TV show/Movie board. :) Also, it would be cool to have a board on Fads of the 80's 90's that we remember. One I just remembered recently is the weird sucker trend. You know those colorful sucker/pacifiers people would wear as necklaces and keychains and stuff. :) Thats always fun to remember!

Lol, and I think that a video game board would be cool too. But yea just suggestions. I know I would use all those boards quite a bit. I am getting addicted to this forum. :)

I would love a whole show-and-tell section, it's so fun to hear about everyone's finds on the thrift store thread!

The TV board might be helpful because every once in a while I remember a snippet of a show or something with NO idea what it was. Maybe a book section too? That happens to me with books too, probably more often than TV.

I second the Book section! I've just started re-reading the Baby Sitter's Club series, and I'm having so much fun with it I plan on rereading alot more of the classic 80's/90's series I loved as a kid. Goosebumps will probably be next. :P

I've started recollecting them! Have you read the blog where the person rereads them through the ideas of an adult? I know that there's one called "What Claudia Wore." Haha.

Is it bad that as a child Clarissa and Claudia were my idea of fashion icons?

I think it might be the same thing you're talking about, but I randomly came across a blog entry where someone put together a fashion show (using actual photos from recent fashion shows) narrated by Claudia with looks inspired by the other members. :P

I think the TV/Movies board could be a TV/Movies/Books/Video Games/Fads board.

In other words, Wardah, a "media" board? :)

How about also a board for current entertainment and maybe a board to discuss current toys?
