I wasn't saying that about your comment RB. I would like to get the thread back on track.

Here's a couple of proposals to get debate going: We drop Ask the Raiders. Not enough questions are coming through. We drop Canberra TV News, as there's video of the press conferences etc put up on raiders.com.au.

No worries, GE.

FWIW I liked the ask the raiders, but if it ended I'd be ok with it.
Ok to drop the Canberra TV News as well, I honestly didn't look in it all that often. Generally links are put in the threads and if its a thread that interests me, usually one of the mods has already kindly linked it.

I'm thinking of adding my own weekly feature. Might even start it in the off-season, but not sure if I've got the commitment to go through with it fulltime.

Ask the Raiders is a good feature and should be used more. Any interaction with the club and an opportunity to give feedback via the nature of the questions is a positive IMO.

You used to have a feature every Thursday in the weekend thread. It was very repetitive.

Getting drunk. Next day drunk. Saturday also drunk.

Laying face down regretting my life to this point (Sunday).

Worst feature going around.

One : having just a direct Hyperlink to the post in the thread would be sufficient for a Canberra Raiders weekly news wrap up. Would make it easier then trolling through the thread.

Two: never used ask the Raiders, but I think it's a backwards step to lose interaction with the club in this manner.

Three: I'd read a Nickman thread.

We can have a "Salon Worm" feature and I can share my opinion/advice on everything whether it is right or wrong as if you are in a salon.

I always have an opinion and I am happy to share it. :lol:

Ask the Raiders thread should stay IMO.

The WIN news thread, dont think we really need as its normally just a rehash of an interview or news we have already had that day and it has already been covered. Plus with the coverage now coming from Wollongong is there much Canberra news anymore?

I Know ask the Raiders isn't used very much, but it was one of the bigger reasons I signed up. As others have said, having the communication channels to the club is too good to pass up no matter how little use they get. +1 for keeping it. I've also really enjoyed the photos I've seen people post when they are at the grounds. I don't think it would make sense to take them out of the game day threads oingr change anything there, but just giving some love to those who do it. I appreciate it.

Is it possible to use the 'Ask the Raiders' thread to get some interesting questions fed through to the players similar to those asked on the footy show (I know that thing was terrible but the player probes had potential I thought). I'm not sure how many people would do it, or what level of questions we would get, but I'd be interested to know more about the personalities of each player (and I don't mean the standard 'who was your fav player growing up' questions). Id also love to have a more interesting/quirky list of questions to ask new starters at the club. Think it would help people become attached to new players quicker.

Its the only real link with the club and it has provided us with some insight to the way they think and why they do things

There you go that's news to me... I'd be happy with questions fielded by the greenhouse though within reason. Heck even if we could get one invited to a GH podcast for an interview. Would be a pipedream but...

I don't think that's a pipedream. It's actually quite reasonable. I'm sure Shillo would do it and even cop a fine if the raiders didn't let him.

If everyone wants the ask a raiders to stay alive I think it might be best if at a set interval (I'm thinking 2 weeks - a month) the thread is bumped for any fresh questions, to keep it relevant. The questions are then forwarded and the thread doesn't just fall pages back and become forgotten about. I don't have any contact at the Raiders but I'd be happy to just purely bump the thread at whatever interval was decided so the mods don't have more on their plates. It really needs to be a regular feature if it's going to survive.

On another feature to improve the GH....

Call me Gen Y but I just can't go past the good ol' like button. It matters almost zero but sometimes I just want to like the hell out of what someone has said, and there is some gold on here that'd be dragging upwards of 10, 15, maybe even 30 likes in facebook world. That would also very, very easily translate into a boogs post of the year, determined by likes.

Like this status if you agree.
