[PAA-Webteam] New forum category for the PAA site: HUMOR

Submitted by PAAMember on October 15, 2005 - 1:00pm. ::

Lord knows we need humor.

We all pass it out amongst ourselves in EMAIL; we had a pretty
good humor section on the Kerry site.

I think we ought to have it as a category for a forum
as well on our new site.

I've added Humor with some categories to the staging site
(staging.paa-tx.org) ... does everyone agree we ought to
have one on the main site as well?

This would give people even more reason to come to our
site. We could do an RSS feed so there would be a
humor feed from our forums too ...

For example, from the PUNS section

Which great Western movie was about a pun contest?
High Noun.

Yes -- especially the political subcategory. Others are OK with me,
too, although if we start getting a lot of images & video then we may
have to cull it out. The different subcategories is a good idea.

We should probably encourage everyone to put links to cartoons and
videos rather than upload the whole thing to our site, if they are
already on another web site somewhere.

yeah

This could even become a "resource" that people or groups (even in
other areas) could come to, if they need a cartoon or joke about Tom
Delay or whoever their favorite target is.

I nominate Charles for Minister of Puns/Punmaster. We'll need
someone, anyway, to take stuff that people just e-mail to us and then
put it on the forum.

Before we get too carried away with new stuff, though, don't forget
that there are still several things pending on our current (new) web
site that we should take care of as soon as we have time.
