New folder ideas?

Our new board needs folders. Of course we need the General Discussions folder. We will probably try to get one for military issues and questions. Recipes is another good one. And I thought it'd be a good idea to have a folder for new members...so they could post an introductory message of sorts. What ideas do you girls have? Give us your input! What folders should we have?

Thanks!

Hmmm... some of the other topics I've seen floating around are:

Vents and Gripes

Prayer Requests

Question of the Day (off-topic fun stuff)

Book Club

Getting to Know You Roll Call

Guard and Reserve Questions

I'm not too creative sometimes, but those usually help to get the board moving!

I saw on some other boards (not on ivillage) how they have a folder for just "GRIPES AND MOANS AND VENTS" I thought that was a great idea. I know sometimes I like to go to the board for some 'pick me up posts' and other times I feel like I could give some great support! if the folders were divided it would be easier. Did that make ANY sense? It did in my mind but not in words LOL...

One of my favorite folders at DMM is the poll folder. They do polls on things like name 3 items in your purse, what are your favorite alcoholic drinks, do you have a website, what are you thankful for, what are your woes for the week, name your most embarrassing moment, do you have travel plans, what is your favorite sandwich etc. It seems like everyone likes to answer these questions so you get alot of responses. I personally really like the recipe folder idea!!

I think a VENT AND GRIPE folder is great, but if we are going to have that then we should also have a LAUGH AND GIGGLE one as well. Some days we need to gripe, but we also need to laugh.

How about a folder for parenting issues? Tips to reintroduce kids to their parents, potty train, temper tantrums, etc etc

See how the majority of us are in a yuck mood, angry, irritated or otherwise? This is why I think we need a seperate folder for laughs. I know I could use a laugh today.

Maybe its just the rain bringing me down, but I been teary all day.
