Just a few random ideas for the site: In no particular order:

GAME DAY:
I think we should have some special graphic for a Game Day Thread that is below the logo on the main page but above all of the forum topics. Something that you notice right away, and is simply a picture of the two teams. With a few options like "Go to Chat", "Go to board", and "buy tickets" (on a side note, you may be able to get some kind of marketing coin from capital tickets to anybody referred to their site from ours).
It'd be cool to make Game Days actual events on this page. Hype it up, Shabbs does a great job with the Game Day threads, and it should be accentuated.

BLOGGERS:
We have such a wealth of knowledge here, not to mention a lot of personalities, that could write fantastic blogs on certain topics. I think giving a few of these people the rights to write a blog a few times a week would be a very cool idea for this site, and might gain some momentum. Somebody for rumours, somebody for game analysis, somebody for other teams (Dave- Chicago, etc) .I know it all sounds very hockeybuzz- but there's a few things we can learn from that site, and then make it our own. I think having a few regular bloggers on this site is a good thing.


Just a couple of ideas I was thinking about earlier.

How about we ask N4L to blog on spelling Smile That would be wicked !!!

OMG yes! Please? Anyone?

It's not a matter of us letting someone blog, just let Clutch know and he'll get the Blog World up and running again - or feel free to fire away.

I've literally been waiting for someone else to start writing stuff. The last time someone came close was Mattshock last year.

Speaking of blogs. I wonder if it wouldn't be best to just have a forum section like the Welcome, around the forum in 30 teams etc. Just dedicated to bloggers and we can lock the new topics function to allow only bloggers to post blogs in there. I think the blog site being at a different address has hurt it's chances of success. As for the Game Day thread event I like it and I'll see if I can come up with something to put up there at the top of the page.

I thought DTR was already going this, I remember he did one blog and he is definitely one of the more knowledgeable members around here, plus Dr. Poo is another one that brings a wealth of knowledge, especially when it comes to capology.
