Question for ya Göran: What do you mean when you say threads? Are you talking about creating and maintaining posts? Subtopics? What you posted above is a great outline for organization, but I think they would work better as sections of a wiki page (coughGRWcough) than threads. Once you're in a forum, there really is no organization except for the Topics & Subtopics. People will post their thoughts/ideas/problems, and we'll discuss.g_axelsson wrote:What do you all think about starting a major thread for cyanide where we give references to resources and other major threads. Then we start a number of threads for different aspects of the cyanide process.
I suggest the following threads :
- Cyanide main thread : Contains references to documents and other major threads with a first post edited to add links when something new appears.
And the following minor threads :
- Cyanide destruction
- Cyanide equipment
- Cyanide leaching
- Cyanide legality
- Cyanide safety
- Cyanide storage
- Cyanide toxicity
- Cyanide waste
- Recovery of metals from cyanide solution
Even if we did a subtopic (Processes: Chemical Processes: Cyanide), so many posts would fall outside of it because often the questioner ("What do I do with these pins?") doesn't know that one possible answer is a cyanide process. Such a post would continue with the pros & cons of cyanide vs. other methods.
Now, if we're talking a master thread/post in The Library, that could work well. That would be a moderator-curated thread (or set of threads as you proposed above).
Or maybe I'm just not getting your groove?
