As you may or may not have noticed, I floated around the idea of having a section (either a board with sub-boards as one user suggested, or just a sub-board) where we could compile and discuss resources, projects, plans, and ideas for Parish Ministry. The response within the thread was good. For those who missed it, here is the thread:
"How many people are active in their parish's ministry?"http://www.orthodoxchristianity.net/forum/index.php/topic,14855.0.html
In order to ascertain what kind of section OC.net will have for this kind of material, the best was to start is by just starting threads on the relevant subject matters. All the threads will be in the "Other Topics" section, and will have "PMR" (for Parish Ministry Resources) in the title, to be clearly delineated as these threads. As various sub-discussions start, I'll split off the relevant sections and create new threads for them.
If the threads are extremely popular, with many daughter threads and related material, then maybe we'll start a board; if they're mildly popular, maybe a sub-board; or, if they're only minimally used, then they'll remain threads. We'll see.
