Fan Continuity Section
- Planning: So far, the only board we'll need for this section. Once we decide on the events, we'll need to have other subsections parallel to this to actually run them. I have Tom's requirements in mind for what we can do with this. So it's a sensitive area, but assuming we will attempt to run events like a monthly Wall Emergency, or go through with Xana's spin off idea, it would be wise to have it organized. How many and what will the other forums under this section is hard to pin down at the moment, because we don't have a set plan for this yet. I would't expect this to get more than 3 or so. Anything bigger and it'd be wiser to move this into a dedicated domain.
General Discussions Section: This will actually be our off-topic, with a slightly more orderly approach.
- General Discussion: A traditional off-topic for everything that fits nowhere else. It's possible to split even this into subsections like Literature, Gaming, etc. But I don't particularly believe it's necessary. What I mean is, having a thread to discuss Butcher, and one to discuss PTerry is not enough reason to have a literature subforum. The volume of content without the subdivisions will probably be big, but making the subdivisions means each sub-section will have precious few content... Or some will have a lot while others will be left to dry.
- Metaguard Projects: This would be a hub for us to organize group efforts (Christmas Carol, ARG Character Profiles) and talk about projects we're working on, like the thread about TvTropes pages we edit or NaNoWriMo novels, namely, stuff we're working on and want input or hivemind power on. I'd make this separate from the Fan-Continuity because the things that would fit here would be more of one shot works than anything resembling an actual continuity.
- Roleplaying: Well... We hope to keep our current games running. And other people manifested desire to run games, along with non-players who are interested in getting into one of these. Having a section for this means we can keep it well contained and organized.

I mean, yes, the ARG is over, but there's still plenty to discuss-- for example, Radio Void Rebel, and the secret messages we're still trying to decode and things (and possible connections with past and future episodes of Echo Chamber).
Just my two cents.

Pixelmage wrote:I'd like to bring up one question here as well. Assuming that model:
Administrative tasks, like board-specific moderator nomination, sub-section creations for the fan-continuity board... Would one of you keep track of that? I do realize that since you'll be using the archives as part of your resume, you'll all keep an eye here. What I'd like to know is how you'll approach that issue of day-to-day watch.
On of the points raised in the chatroom that I'll already mention here, is the idea of promoting one of us to handle that. I realize that idea brings up a lot of concerns though, so I'll not elaborate on it for now. I may bring up my ideas if you do consider it.

- Adminverse/Echo Chamber Discussion: It's not like we'll stop following the developments with Radio Void, or the episodes of EC. There's season 3 coming up, this really deserves a separated place. It could be a sub-forum of General, and initially I just assumed we'd have threads on this subject there... But this place is the result of the Echo Chamber ARG after all. This really should have it's own section. Credits to Q for pointing out. And after some thinking... New people coming to read the archives should have a place like this to talk to us directly about it.
- WTF forum, entirely frozen in stasis at the point the ARG officially ended. General discussion, off-topic, announcements and all.
- Metaguard hangout.
