A "What's TCH about" section or announcement
#41
Did you want me to give a thorough, in-depth testimony on how I found this place and my interpretation of its purpose, and such? I don't mind. @ Kyng

I only joined cause I knew @ queenzelda was a member here, & I wanted to be a part of a general forum community. Not many General Forums are as big as TCH was from what I could find at the time. So I joined.

Some testimonial, huh? I never even thought of it as a coffee house or anything.. Just a general forum.

Yep, a couple of members doing that would be good :) .

Quote:The current board opened in June 2018; however, The Coffee House can trace its roots back further than that. The forum first opened on ZetaBoards in December 2009, when Kyng and ObsessedwithBirds merged their two forums to create what was then known as the 'Imperial Forum'. However, many members considered this name to be too uptight - and, following a vote on a new name, the board adopted the much friendlier name of 'The Coffee House' in November 2010. We then spent the subsequent years getting to know new people, sharing our experiences and forging long-lasting friendships along the way. Of course, there have been some rough patches (most of all, when we were forced to move from our original home); however, we've stuck together as a community, and come out stronger than ever.

Nevertheless, we don't wish to dwell on our history too much, because it's still a work-in-progress - and, by joining us, you have an opportunity to write part of it yourself!

Yeah, I'm missing a lot, but I deliberately kept it short, because I don't want to overwhelm people with pages of history that they were never around to see :P . Just a very quick run-down of two or three main events is probably sufficient.

Also, if we're looking for good topics, we should probably give the "LINGUISTICS!!" topic a mention. It's a solid contender for "Best thread on the entire forum", after all! 

I made a very minor edit to the summary - no need to use 'along the way' twice!

Other than that, I think it's perfect - I agree that we shouldn't go too deep into the history of the board. If people want that, we could always set up a thread in Ask Me titled 'Ask about TCH's History' or something. :P 

In terms of good topics, I agree that Jarkko's Linguistics thread is incredible (even if I only drop in from time to time to give some of it a read!!), but we'd definitely need a more simple thread to contrast it with. I guess we'd have to avoid any threads in the Community Café area.

Thanks for spotting that :D !

And, yes, the "Ask about TCH's history" is an excellent idea. In fact, I think I'll start that right away :P .

But, yes: the next topics shouldn't be quite so content-heavy. There should probably be a contest, and also a more 'fun' thread from the discussion areas (I did suggest the Invented Words thread, but I'm not sure I want two from the Linguists' Lounge). Perhaps something from the Gaming Showcase? I don't know.

What about one of my topics about birds? 

I feel like I should add more, but I keep forgetting. :P

Quite possibly - especially if there's a less technical, more 'fun' one (to contrast with the more heavily in-depth linguistics thread!).

Also, I've done some more work on this page now :) . I've finished the "What is the community about?" section, and done the summaries of the Coffee Credits and awards:

https://tch-forum.com/misc.php?page=comm...troduction

Just the "What kinds of things do you do?" section and the testimonials to do now :D !
