As I said in the other thread, I think a Reading challenge sub-forum would be the best solution. It would provide for any other challenges members might want to initiate as well as any future challenges of the same type.

I'm not sure what's so wrong with the original idea of keeping people's reading records in one big thread in the social group. Sure it's not ideal, but I reckon the KISS principle applies here.

What do I know however is, if yet another New Great Improved Way of Doing Things(tm) comes along, I might just get bored and go back to spending my time reading instead of goofing around with this.

I didn't even know this thread existed!

Thanks dreams et al, I'm just happy something will be decided soon. I had been under the impression in the other thread that perhaps no mods would intervene and we'd be left to our own devices and never reach a consensus!

It seems like all the options have been put out there; it's just a matter of which one the mods decide is best.

To others in the group: I like a general "reading challenge" subforum idea, but how would we keep our group organised if that happened? Just the two threads idea? Or should everyone post their own threads, even though that will bury any threads not related to our group since there seems to be so many of us?

Honestly, I almost wish that the mods would just tell us which way we should do it if a "reading challenge" subforum is created.

I'm not part of the group, but I'd say have 1 sticky thread which lists in the first post everyone who's participating and links to either their individual threads (if that's the way it goes) or to their particular "index" post which they'll create in the sticky to keep a list of their total reads.

Then depending on whether it's decided to go with individual reading/discussion threads or a joint one (which should also be stickied), have the secondary discussion happen there and not in the 1st sticky, which would be purely for organization.

People could post in the secondary thread(s) with what they just read and discuss it amongst themselves. People could add to their personal sorting post in the 1st sticky thread a link to their "announcement" of the new title they're on.

That way people who are following are kept up to date on new stuff, but anyone looking for a particular older title can look it up from the index and just click the link to read more.

Oh, and there should be another, non-100 sticky where people could post announcements of other challenges and links to those threads.

YMMV of course, but that's how I'd do it.

Mission accomplished.

But seriously, I think we kind of did jump the gun adding those extra threads. Too bad groups are not like regular threads. If they were, non of this mess would be happening now.

The below is what was considered in coming to a decision.

1- MobileRead has just had a "100 books in 2010 Challenge" thread that discussed or commented on starting, during, and ending goals between members who wished to join the fun.

2- A second thread, "2010 Reading Goals", was used by some members to post their list. Members posted to that thread with their personal goals if they wished, others keep track of their books read in other ways. Some used Goodreads or excel sheets. There was no requirement to post your list, just to personally keep track, however you wished.

3- Many members posted in a current long-running thread on MR, "Hey!! Let's get some action going! What are we reading?" about what they had just read and what they personally thought about it. The whole MR community was able to read the posts and add to comments about the book, also. <<This thread is easily searched for a book title or member by using the "Search this Thread" or "Advanced Search" option. That way you can find your own posts easily, posts that mention a book you have read or are considering next, or even search to see what another member has just read.>>

From the MobileRead Guidelines:
"Our Aim
MobileRead aims to be a friendly and inclusive forum.
"

We have taken into account comments in the feedback thread, the other threads, the social group discussions, various reports, and PM's to come to a decision that takes into account all of the above and MobileRead's guideline aim to be an inclusive forum.

With all of the above in mind, we have decided that a separate forum for this book challenge will not be created.

1- The current thread, "READ 100 BOOKS IN 2011", started by THE TERMINATOR, will continue to be the thread discussing and commenting about the beginning, during, and ending of the challenge. This thread will be stickied.

2- A New second stickied thread (Members of 'READ 100 BOOKS IN 2011' - Book Lists) will be started soon (is set up) that is only for members to posts their lists, if they choose to do so. Since the thread may be a long one, please bookmark your post to make it easy to return and edit. No discussion will be held in this thread, please use the original thread, "READ 100 BOOKS IN 2011" for making comments.

3- Members may post what they have read or are going to read in the current thread, "Hey!! Let's get some action going! What are we reading?". The whole MR community is welcome to read the posts and add to comments about the book, also. <<This thread is easily searched for a book title or member by using the "Search this Thread" or "Advanced Search" option. That way you can find your own posts easily, posts that mention a book you have read or are considering next, or even search to see what another member has just read.>>

4- Book discussions and or lists may still be in the social group of READ 100 BOOKS IN 2011.

5- Members may copy their lists from the closed threads or social group thread and paste them to the new list thread or not, if they wish.

6- This is suppose to be a fun challenge started by THE TERMINATOR and not require more time to record-keep than to read. So, have fun reading, and if you have time, post about it or keep a list.
