  • Should we have more "vertical" specialty discussio

    I know there are a good number of gtd-related forums out there. Would it help if we created more here? For example, we could have a Palm-specific forum, an Outlook-specific forum, a Lotus Notes-specific forum, etc.

    Please let us know your feedback and if you have an idea for a forum you'd like to see, share it!

    Thanks!

    That's a great idea! How about an Ecco-specific discussion forum.

      I think more speciality specific discussion groups would be a good idea. I believe this site could become a "watershed" site for all the GTDers out there.

        Vertical Discussions

        I would really appreciate a Lotus Notes Forum.

          How about Pocket Informant?

          I would like to have a discussion on using Pocket Informant for GTD...

            I would be interested in seeing one for a paper-based implementation.

              Isn't this forum divided into subtopics already? To rwichmann, I also use PocketInformant for implementing GTD. See the GTD and PocketPC thread.

                  I vote no. The software tools have their own user forums already. Why fracture those communities? I come here for platform-agnostic GTD stuff.

                    I do not want to complicate my "@ computer" routine any more than it already is. I have 3 email addresses and two forums that I participate in. No more, PLEASE! Why not have threads, as I've already seen here, for these particular software things? As a paper user, I simply don't open/read the software messages, but I do read the general information/interest and paper-based ones. IMNSHO, the forum is OK as is, except that I can't do bold, ital, or color anymore with this new language it's posted in! <grump>

                      [General] This is a title for a general topic

                      Could we agree on using a list of standard topics, like

                      [Paper]
                      [Outlook]
                      [Palm]
                      [Ecco]
                      [Lotus_Note]
                      [General]
                      [Off_Topic]

                      and the like.

                      When starting a new thread the individual user could build titles like:

                      "[Paper] I love index cards"
                      "[Outlook] Please help with Add-In"
                      "[Palm] Writing on my PDA"
                      "[Ecco] What the hell is Ecco?"
                      "[Lotus_Note] How to use it with GTD?"
                      "[General] Just started with GTD and have no clue"
                      "[Off_Topic] A Rockstar Ate my Hamster!"

                      The reader would see if [xxxx] is of interest for her/him and decide to read or not. And we would not have to split up the forum.

                      What do you say?

                          Yep, you can still pretty up your posts

                          bold
                          italics
                          red
                          blue
                          green
                          purple
                          orange
                          pink

                          Use [ b ] and [ /b ] without spaces for bold.
                          [ i ] and [ /i ] for italics.
                          [ color = red ] and [ /color ] specifying color you want to use (see names above)

                              segue jeopardy

                              One of the most pleasurable aspects of following a discussion is watching the evolution of thoughts in members of a group. It's nonlinear and, IMO, at its best when unrestricted by specific topical constraints. Having fora breakdowns by variety of software assures less reading of individual posts, and less exposure to diverse ideas. I don't want presifted input, tightly categorized; I want to stumble across something I'd never sought out and find myself enlightened, amazed, or amused. On the contribution side, I'd be less inclined to post for fear that I'm going to say something OT and annoy everyone. Although judging from this post, that fear isn't too effective at staying my hand.

                              Whatever happened to the concept of interdisciplinary thought, of intellectual cross-pollination?
