Expectations of your new CL :-)

Good to see more and more posts under the roll call. I've been a CL for another board for over a year and a half now, but I know this board is quite different. The conversation here is usually on topic and 'serious'... which I think is a huge strength! This made me wonder how I can play the CL part the best, and instead of thinking up a million ways in my own spiral of thoughts, I hope you will all give me some input: what would you like to see in a CL? Do you like weekly questions on gifted-related topics? Polls, quizzes, games? Off-topic, on-season discussions? An educational 'hot topic' every week to give our opinions about? Or do you prefer a CL in the background: just posting when she has something valuable to add to a discussion ;-) ?

Anyway is good for me, just let me know what *you* want! Thanks.

thanks you, your feedback certainly helps. And I think starting out with the QOTWs might be a good thing. I'll take your topic as the first....

I think most of us have been CL of this board at some point in the last decade lol. Personally, I never found this board responsive to quizzes, QOTW and surveys unless they were directly on topic and somehow fresh. However, without some of that, the board sort of dwindles and not particularly apealing to new posters.

I admit, the selfish part of me really appreciates that most of us here have "been around the block." However,

I am not much into quizzes or games, but I do like discussions on gifted topics. Personally, I like getting people's own personal experiences, so I'm less inclined to respond to the "do you think that this article in the New York Times is accurate?" type of thing and more interested in hearing responses to "how do you approach teachers?" or "what science enrichment do you do?" or stuff like that.
