We have a Pintrest board -just one at the moment - where you referring to that? If you have ideas about it, or want to help me currate it please use the thread here.
I haven't found a ton of things to put up lately, Pintrest hs been flooded with Dr. Who and super heroes lately...

I had to remember what I was referring to! (I already follow the Pinterest, and I enjoy what gets put up there. :grin:) I was referring to Lord Libidan's question about the pattern wiki and using Pinterest to organize it. You had mentioned

It would take forever to set up a Pinterest pattern page, but it would be possible to put the same pin into multiple boards if it spanned multiple categories.

hah that's true. I believe the official decision was to revise the way we use the wiki. I made some templates and added some features but I'm not officially on the "mod" team here.

Here's an example of the new wiki pages we're making for the patterns. The cool part about this is that they are tagged and searchable :)

I'm not sure if anyone else brought this up, but I think a Pattern Help Board would be really efficient. I tend to need help with patterns that I am in the process of creating often, and I don't like posting in the pattern request boards because I feel that they always get overlooked/I'm kind of spamming in a board that my posts don't belong in because I already have a pattern; it's just not complete or something is off and I'd like the help to fix it up.

Oh, finally found this search button!!! Gosh, what is it doing up there ^^

Anyways, one little suggestion about the pattern requests forum : threads that got their pattern served should be capital tagged DONE in the subject or something like that, or closed, any trick that helps tell the still open requests from the served ones. I would find that helpful anyways :p

Can we get a new forum for "Gaming"? (also I can't believe I haven't asked this before)
This would be the perfect spot for the gamer tag thread as well as general gaming discussions!

(edited: to say forum as I could not think of that word when I first typed it! thanks RMDC)

I'm not sure if this was suggested in the last 27 pages, but I would love, love, love a mobile version of the SS forums! Does phpBB support it?
Or does it exist already and I've been blinding myself for no reason ahaha :pac
