    Default Friday Night Lights

    Wasn't sure who to message about this...

    The view counts suggest that FNL is still popular. If the usuals would like it to continue but don't want to start the threads, I'd be happy to take over starting them. (I would just need new-thread privileges over there, which I don't currently have.) I hope it doesn't die off, but would understand if you'd rather it just fade away...

    I was wondering if/when this would start again, certainly hope it does, realize this is more work for the builders but I very much appreciate(as I've stated before) viewing whats new and inspiring.

    Happy, healthy and prosperous new year to you all,

    regards, Brian

    I propose this:

    We start a FNL thread this week and it alone stays open ad infinitum (that's Latin). It alone will be the repository. But - and there's always a big butt - after the initial post, people in the trade only post on Friday each week. That is, you add your content as was the norm, but not on the other six days. Maybe I'll even lock the thread during the week to keep it haute.

    This way will allow the legacy to continue, and anyone who has content to add (images, not narratives) can do so every Friday.

    Talk. To. Me.

    Sounds great e-R!

    One question, is there a way to automate the lock-unlock.
    I'm just thinking about how the current FNL mods are not always around.

    Richard - Sure, I think that's a great idea. With less weekly participation, an ongoing thread might be the way to go.
    (And happy to help, if needed, as well.)

    Won't locking the thread 6 days a week make it harder for those in the trade to contribute? I don't care what day of the week it is when someone in the trade generously shares their time and efforts to post, I'm just grateful they posted. Let's not limit their window to do so.

    For the sake of discussion here, that's what Smoked Out threads exist for. Separately, the galleries are for clients, fans, and acolytes of particular brands. And FNL was concocted by Steve (thanks Garro) so that one day a week each maker can show what's on the bench.

    You feelin' this, or are we on different pages?

    My thoughts are that of the few who already contribute to FNL, some may not be able to post on Friday.

    FNL is a nice weekly picture dump with no commentary. Smoked Out is a little more interactive, and some who post in FNL may not have a Smoked page.

    I would say there's no need to lock it during the week. The name implies when one should post. If some jump in early on Thursday, no big deal. Can't help the Tuesday-posters, though.

    (I liked the original "rules", too... Raw metal only and no complete bikes. Workbench photos! But that's just me. I know that was ditched long ago.)

    I can only speak to my own viewing habits: I regularly follow the FNL posts; I like the variety, in process photos, and the occasional surprises. I rarely if ever visit Smoked Out threads.
