Instead of having a special first post we have a locked sticky thread that is a single post. In that post we tell members to subscribe to the thread (with email notification if they want up to the second notices) and it will be updated when pertinent information comes through the jungle.... errr pre-release "lounge" thread. This could allow the first post of the lounge thread to state reminders for behavior and a mission statement for the thread. It would also allow people who have to work and only one the juiciest of rumors to distract them to be notified. They would get that info without the posts on how South Jersey is way better then North (swamp/yucky beaches) Jersey.
Great minds think alike.
This is exactly what we have been planning all along for the forum once the phone goes live.
FWIW - like you, we expected phones released and for it never to have come to this lengthy affair when the OP structure was first laid out by Steven with consultation by Phases.
The suggestion is excellent - I'm sure Steven&team will consider it carefully as we move forward in these coming days. In truth, we just want it released and for the real fun to start for us the way it has for our UK cousins.
