FoRT Yearbook February 2015
I’m kicking off a project that I’ve done on other forums and found to be very popular. For our forum’s yearbook, we’ll come up with superlatives for everyone who wishes to participate and compile them into a list. Traditional school superlatives might be things like “Most Likely to Succeed”, “Miss Congeniality”, “Biggest Science Geek” etc. but for our superlatives, we’ll use things about the person’s forum name or things related to the forum , like “Most Likely to be Online 24/7”, “FoRT’s Dear Abby”, “The Biggest Survivor Fan on the East Coast”, etc. Some of my past titles include “Always Fun and Games” and “The Bellwether of the Forum”.
The way this will work is if you’re interested in participating, sign up in this thread by the end of Valentine’s Day (that’s roughly two weeks). I’ll put a list together of everyone participating and then start posting three names per day, starting with the first people to sign up for the yearbook. I’ll give everyone 2 or 3 days to come up with superlatives for those three people. Then I’ll post the next three names on the list. After we’ve gone through all the names, I’ll give a few more days for everyone to get all last minute suggestions in. Then I’ll send a pm to each person on the list with all the suggestions for them and let them pick their favorite one. At the end of that process, I’ll post the results so everyone can see the titles given to each participant.
It’s a lot of fun and a great way to get to know people on the forum. If a name comes up that you’re not very familiar with, you can look through their past posts or send them a pm to find out more about them so after this process, you’ll find that you have much fewer strangers in the forum and more people that you’ve gotten to know!
I used to make signature line banners with people’s yearbook titles in them but since we don’t have those here, I can make an avatar with your yearbook title, if you would like.
