Ought this thread be made by Hugo himself? That'd be more...meaningful, one might suppose.

I just thought this would be the "let's drink beer" thread. I had the impression that Hugo was going to post a more thoughtful thread about what progress the library has made, and where we should try to take it from here.

Not beer. I'm underage for that. And even if I could, I wouldn't.

So can I drink cokes instead? I'm quite addicted to it. :wink:

Hugo won't be online today? I had hoped he would start his thread about TGE at the 6-month point.

But, for now, more beers! :joker:

Hugo sadly wasn't able to start this thread because he couldn't get Internet access this last week. However, i was able instead to do a stupid amount of exercise and shed a few tears over the All Blacks selections. I'm back now for a few days.

So, how do you think we're done over these first six months? How could we improve? What are our strengths and weaknesses? What else would you like to see as part of the site?

Over these first six months, we've done magnificently well. We have quite a few regular posters who have been contributing to the site. It is good news that even new members like Loki, lamp, and Arthur Volodin have been active in the Academy.

I don't know how we could improve at this stage. Perhaps we could be patient and wait for more members to sign up. I've introduced a few friends of mine to the site and two of them have signed up. Hopefully, more will sign up and they will be posting.

Our strengths are our intellectual and well-thought-out discussions. Members like davidm, Campanella, copiae, etc. do contribute a significant portions in those discussions.

Perhaps one of our weaknesses is that we don't have many threads yet? By making more threads on more subjects we will probably draw many scholars out there to sign up and post on our board.

Now I'd like to see...avatars as part of the site. :p

Strangely enough, I think enabling avatars might be a good idea and might actually lure more people to post. I can't give any concrete reason why I think this is so -- it's more in the nature of a hunch. Maybe it's because I suspect avatars would give the site more visual punch and perhaps make it seem a more welcoming place.

Other thoughts later.

I think that is because it is a common characteristic in most forums.

Well, what do you say, O Avatar Enabler Gods? Shall we experiment with small and tasteful Avatars?
