Recently someone brought up the idea of starting a brand new readthrough of the whole novel. We had discussed a few various ways to go about it, but nothing concrete yet. Here is where I want to know your thoughts on it.
1) If we had it here, would you participate in the read along and the discussion?
2) Who would be interested in leading the discussion topics?
3) If you don't like the idea, would you mind telling us why? other than that you just don't want to read the brick, of course; I mean more along the lines of why you'd think it wouldn't work out here or if you have an idea you think will work better.
My current idea is to set up a sub-forum in the Les Misérables Brick board, and limit new threads to the moderator(s) of that board (and Admin), so that all the new threads will be expressly and solely for the chapter-by-chapter read-through discussions. Ideally I'd think having a small group of moderators (i.e., 2-3 people) in charge of posting the new discussion topics each day/week, and that way keeping things going, rather than restricting it to one person with the possibility of things falling behind if that person misses some of the discussion. Any threads not part of the readthrough discussion can always be set up in the other discussion boards designated for the purpose.
So let me know your ideas and suggestions here -- nothing, of course, is in stone, and it's more fun to set up one of these when we can have more people involved! ETA
: Regarding answering the poll: Many of the various board styles do not support polls properly. It's a phpBB bug which is supposedly fixed with a latest update, however I have not been able to properly install new updates to the board. You will have to change your viewing style (if only temporarily) to either 'revolution' or 'prosilver' for the polls to work correctly. You can do this via the User Control Panel -> Board preferences. I will make a general admin post once I've got the polls fixed; but I may need to take the board down for a time to do the actual fix. In the meantime, this is just a dirty workaround, and I apologise.
