I just finished reading the thread on refining Gold at home and deeply enjoyed the one on Silver. While reading the Gold thread, something hit me
though. If I hadn't been on while that topic was either in the Fire Hose display or new topics, I could easily have missed one of the better threads
ATS has had in recent times. How many more lurk down deep in the forums and archives? How many others are lost to sheer volume but might change my
life in a positive way by learning what is there to be seen?
So here is my suggestion. We need a new forum around here. We need a forum whose only purpose is the collection of what I may call 'Super-Threads'.
By that, I mean those threads which cover topics or impart knowledge that make them truly timeless in nature. Presidents may come and go... Wars may
start and end....Even entire nations can rise, fall or end all together. Those threads on Silver and Gold will STILL be as valuable then as they are
today or would have been years ago.
I wouldn't necessarily leave such a forum open for anyone to START new threads, although contributing to existing ones is important in adding value.
No, I would suggest that the threads which find their way to such a special place among all the others reach that point by consensus or review of some
kind.... Member voting seems too fickle and easy to warp the purpose here..and I'm not sure how to accomplish THAT side of things to end up with a
forum carrying the best of the 'Timeless' category of contributions.
What does everyone think in general though? It just seems an idea whose time has come..and then some.
