Hey, Andy, I hate to ask you to do any work, but do you think it would be possible for you to create a new forum for the weight-loss support group Kia brought up in the pics thread? We had a nice long chat on the phone last night about it and I think it's a great idea. But if it's possible, we think it would probably do better to have restricted access, because we thought it might be easier for some people to share if they knew only people that were trying to lose weight could see it as well. From experience, the more open the participants of the group are, the more effective the group really is.

Some stuff we came up with:

*Weekly weigh-ins (we'll be more honest if it's a private forum)

*Before and after pics

*Threads to post different diet ideas, like Kia's LA Weightloss pamphlet, the right way to do Slim-Fast, etc

*Diary threads (like a blog, but easier to access and comment)

*Meal ideas and recipes

*Success stories

*Exercise ideas

*Words of encouragement/good quotes, etc, whatever

*And, of course, a thread for goal-setting and commitment pledges.

Kia and I can mod it, and it just might give the participants a really good excuse to be on gb everyday.... Please? :puppydogeyes:

Ok, I like the idea so I'm going to use my admin powers and try to create this forum. I'll make it into a general health and fitness forum. Anyone who wants to be in, PM me and I'll give you permission to access it

And I can't get all the settings right, so um, BEEURD! Help!

Note that I said "Try" to create. I got it all figured out except the permissions. I still don't like this admin panel as much as the admin panel that we had when I turned GB pink

I believe there's a reason for that. You're being punished. :p

i suggest an experiment then. Prin turns GB pink again, and then we see if the admin panel hates her more than it does now. :p

They actually sold Yankee's pom poms at some point? That's really...dumb. :p

I think the important question here is...why does Ender have Yankee's pom poms? And why has he kept them so long? :p

A girl gave them to me, when I first moved here. They've been lying under a pile of stuff in my apartment ever since.
