I think it'd be cool to have an area in the forum where users write about projects they've recently finished and what they liked about the pattern or not, whether they'd recommend the pattern or not, etc. It could be sort of like the "customer review" sections at Amazon and the like. For me, when I finish a project, I feel that I have a lot to share about that project and what I say might assist someone else who is considering the pattern at some point. Now, if I want to share that or am looking to find what someone else has stated about a project, I have to do a search and will find that type of information all over the place. This way, it would be isolated in one area. Does that make sense? Is it of interest to anyone else?

that would probably fit nicely into the "what are you working on" "Current Projects" section, but folks here don't like to post where things belong, and reminders to do so sometimes result in temper tantrums about how everyone is so mean if you post in the wrong section, so as a result - things are all over the place and hard to find.

I wonder if it were worded Finished Projects Comments or something like that? I agree with what you stated and would like to figure a way to attempt improvement so that the forum could be an even better resource than it already is. It's just a thought.

Not argueing or even disagreeing with you in the least, Martha. I just think that folks actually posting (ONCE) in the appropriate section would go a long way to assist in matters of finding things.

The thing is - comments about a project could fit into "What am I working On?" "Current Project", or into any of the specific groups which might apply to the project - such as "shawls" or "400 yard projects" etc, etc.

It isn't necessarily that people put their comments in the wrong place - but that there are far too many places that a piece of information can fit.

I disagree, MM. Some of the places that people mispost things are so far removed from the subject of the posts, it's quite clear that they're not confused, just too lazy to read through the section titles to find the appropriate thread. Most of the posts that begin with "I don't know if this is the right spot..." ARE in the right spot, and that intro shows that the poster thought about where to put the question. The egregious ones are posted willy-nilly.

I agree with you Lissa - some people just don't look at where they are posting - but *MY* point was that there are often multiple locations that would be perfectly acceptable places for the same post.

The irony is that I so much agree with everything you all are saying and posted the concept in the hopes that it would make it easier. But, you're right. No matter how well a section is identified, many users will still post things in a different area. I'm so neat and tidy that I have a hard time relating to even the thought of posting in the "wrong" area (LOL).

Martha knitssk,
I can see the point of what you are suggesting but that type of information is what most people put on their blogs. Which is one of the reasons I'm thinking of getting one.

That's true. In fact, that's exactly the type of information I thought would be useful to those of us who just don't have the time to blog. I wish I did but I spend every free moment knitting, which still isnt' enough time.
