Quote from: Live2Learn on September 19, 2017, 10:00:21 pmWould the PTB ('Powers That Be") wish to have some topical areas retained as 'guided discussions' while others are a bit more 'wild west'? I wonder which would produce the most lively and interesting conversations?

I wonder which would produce the most lively and interesting conversations? The goal is not "lively and interesting conversations," the goal is to be a helpful resource to CAP members (and as TX CAP Mom points out, the parents of our cadets.) There is still room to provide constructive feedback and to find ways to improve CAP, but there is a difference between being simply grumbling about CAP and being solutions oriented to our problems.
Quote from: NIN on September 19, 2017, 08:54:40 pmThe original intent of CAPTalk was to provide a national-level venue for CAP members, cadets and seniors, to learn from each other. A place for members to have discussions where everyone could learn professionally from one another, share resources, best practices, ideas, comment on others' ideas, etc. A professional discussion community. A real resource.
Quote from: Live2Learn on September 19, 2017, 11:16:56 pmMaybe ONE of the goals is to be helpful to TX CAP Mom. Is that the sole purpose of CAPTalk? Should CAPTalk have some structured areas where conversations can be less than "lively and interesting"... ?? while others dig for more? We should keep in mind that heavy handed "moderation" tends to produce the party line and little else. FWIW, it's my observation that boring is unlikely to attract, nor retain much interest or insightful participation. Where would you propose justifiable critiques of CAP (i.e. pointing out and exploring solutions to 'warts') be discussed?

Quote- The forum might benefit from the ability to "gild" comments and/or commenters. Newbies will see immediately who the smart people you should be paying attention to are .....
Quote from: Gunsotsu on September 20, 2017, 05:24:46 amI'll admit, proudly, to being one of those "you will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy" crowd. Because, as I've always said, CAPTalk IS NOT an official part of CAP. And anything you gleam from there should be taken with a grain of salt. That's the ultimate take away, nothing here is in any way officially connected to CAP. So why should it matter?
Quote from: Cliff_Chambliss on September 20, 2017, 12:53:21 pmThis is a very interesting conversation. There is one thing I have noticed about CAPTALK (and several other aviation related forums). Those forums which allow the use of an alias are, in general, less civil and less disciplined than those sites that require the use of a real name. I wonder how much would clean up if all posters were required to own their comments and use their real name and location.
