10/28/09: Will's Feedback (Getting To Know What You Want Here)  

made by nuclearpez

Help Will Out!

Hey everyone!

Since we didn't have Glee Club today because of the baseball football away game, Rachel (risti couldn't get to Music post due to work today) decided to take the time to work on some other things and is out today.

However, don't worry! Will to the rescue. Heh.

So for those of you that actually could make it to the club today, I've got general questions for you guys! This is the time for you guys to give us feedback on how to run things here. Remember this community is for YOU guys, not for us and we want to make this as awesome as possible.

Glee Club Feedback

1. What are you guys looking for from each of the days of the week? Do you like it when say Quinn goes in depth of catching all the little details about each person? Would you like Emma to reccount all the events that happened so far with each couple? Or would you like it to go straight to the question?

2. When do you think you'd be most likely to check the posts? (If you could convert EST times that'd be perfection. If not, at least tell us your time zone.)

3. Though Kurt runs the viewing parties a day later, would you guys like viewing discussions here DURING the episodes as well? Speaking of which: TOMORROW IS A REWIND DISCUSSION! We're going to be discussing the Pilot tomorrow, Showmance will be the week after.

4. While we have new posts every week, we have a desire to keep posts active on certain topics so that no one feels that they missed the initial topic. How would you recommend we keep discussions going?

5. On Puck's Swinging Saturdays we're keeping the posts free-for-all, would you guys like anything else to be the theme there? Would you guys be down with a Friending Meme this Saturday?

6. Though we have questions daily, they're meant to initiate discussions not to fully control them but they seem to be mostly controlling. Are you guys okay with this? How can we create more of a long running discourse versus just posting one's opinions?

Thanks guys!

1. When I joined the comm, I thought it would be akin to a 7 day discussion on various aspects of the episode that just premiered. So far the discussion topics are pretty broad (which is totally cool!) but for instance, I wasn't too interested in joining in Monday's topic of theorizing about Will's backstory. I guess I'd like something more episode related? If I make sense?

2. I'm more likely to check and answer a post early morning PST (this is because I'm LJing at work, but there's no one around to catch me. >>)

3. I...would probably skip on an viewing discussion during the actual episode, mainly because I'm on the west coast and have to wait 3 hours to join in the fun.

4. Perhaps in each new post, you can post links to the more recent topics. That way, when I do have time to respond, I've got a daily reminder to check out those older discussions.

5. I would love a Friending Meme! NEED MORE GLEE FRIENDS, HIII.

6. I'm okay with the questions format (you guys come up with some pretty thought-provoking questions too.) You're right though in that it doesn't allow for much interacting or discourse with others. I...don't have a suggestion, but will think on it! Or at least try to be more active.

Thanks mods, I think you all are doing a stellar job.

Thanks so much for the feedback!

You know as a teacher I always appreciate that since when I'm teaching it always feels like I'm talking to a group of zombies.

You know, you should check out Tina's snapshots in the future since they're in-depth looks at the episodes if that's your thing. And I know Kurt'll be doing more in depth things after Sectionals.

1) I kind of like what's happening right now. :)

2) Uhmm I have no idea. Sorry.

3) I can't watch it live. So I would not discuss it.

4) Post links on recent entries.

5) YES that would be awesome.

6) Ahh...sorry. My brain's kind of dead right now... But yeah. If I think of one I'll get back to you.

1.I like what I've seen so far. There seems to be a good variety, so of you're not interested in the topic one day the next day is likely to be more interesting.
2. Usually around 5pm EST, when I get home from work.
3. I know I wouldn't participate in a discussion during an episode because I would likely get too caught up in the computer and miss what's on the tv.
4. I'd be all about a friending meme.
5.I'm not sure there is anything more you can do to facilitate discussion. Either people will respond to answers before their own or they wont. I suppose you could try to ask a couple of people to make a conscious effort to reply to others answers in sort of a "see it is allowed" leading by example way. Personally, I like the questions, as I'm bad at framing free-response reactions.
