Forum Challenges - Have they run out of steam?

Post by Chris Noble on Thu Sep 22, 2011 9:40 pm

Have the forum challenges run out of steam? Are they on the right night for you or are you just not interested?

Very few people have taken part in the last few so I wonder if we should just stop. Please vote and give your opinions and suggestings by reply please.

HI Chris,
as you know I've missed several of the last challenges, not through not wanting to take part but time pressure. The option I would tick isn't up there, 'Would take part if I can but don't count on me'.

I don't know how many took part last night and how many we need to have 'critical mass'.

Not sure if these comments help answer anything, just wanted to give you my thoughts.

Hi, I voted for Thursday as that normally is a much better bet for me and I am happy to take part.

I personally can't do them on a Thursday however I think it has been quite good that it has been on either of these days as some people can't do a Wednesday.



I wondered if it had slowed down as it was summer, I must admit I was expecting more of a turn out now the nights are drawing in.



I hope they don't stop as I think they are a great idea and great fun. Maybe more people need to be encouraged to join in! I mean I feel I can't compete with the much more advanced members of the club but I have won one and love the challenge to think of ideas. I have also learnt a lot from (and about in some cases Very Happy ) other members of the club.



And the chats in the forum on the night always make me laugh Smile



Please don't let them go

Wow what service, I didn't expect to get the poll changed! I will now vote. Having read Pam's post, clearly people get a lot out of them and so the critical mass need not be that great. I must try harder!

I have always been a huge fan of the Challenges and now we are back home hope to take part in them again. I have hardly ever had so much fun in two hours!

Wednesday is a bit of a No-No as 'Grand Designs' is on, I know that we can record programs but I just like to watch it when it is being broadcast.

I do have one suggestion - how about holding the challenges once a month?

Cheers

To do a Wednesday means I have to miss radio club so tend to miss some of each but if there is an event on radio club gets priority. I don't think either will suit all so to alternate seems to work but of course much depends on the winner as it has to suit the judge.

I have really enjoyed it and have missed quite a few nights at radio club in order to take part. Of course should I end up with a officers role with radio club I would have to miss every Wednesday.

As with the Critique Circles I think there will be ups and downs and those who do it on odd night and those who are if you like core members. What I hope is there are enough core members to keep it running so those who want to give it a go still have the option.

So people remember when it is run may be selecting first or last week in the month will get more people taking part?

A most enjoyable part of the club activities and I always look forward to the challenges. Perhaps Steve's suggestion of monthly is good.
We should have a campaign to recruit the new members. They need re-assurance that it is not a highly skilled competition but more of a fun evening.

Perhaps we can show some of the titles and associated images one night. This might help show how relaxed and fun the thing is. We don't have to take a whole night just 20 minutes explaining the process and show images. This will further introduce new members to the forum.

Maybe if we had a 'Like' button like on face book to work on the whole forum. Many times I read a comment and would like to say I like it but not comment any more.
I love watching the Forum challenge's but have never taken part, I just like to watch over what peoples idea's are on a subject without committing my self to take part. Maybe a 'like' key or button would show this on other subjects as well as the forum.
I have issues with the club starting so early on a Monday evening and find I can not attend because of this. I will make it soon as the evenings draw in.

I agree with it maybe being once a month, I also think a push on a Monday night to show new members and ones that don't take part the fun we have. Like I said, anyone can win one regardless of experience, its about having a creative idea and seeing how it can work. Oh and the witty banter in the chat on the night lol
