Some forum ideas for 2006

In a bright moment of inspiration this original idea came to me... ok ok I admit it I was visiting the Dutch forum :embarass:

Nevertheless it is a good idea. If you have any suggestions to improve the forum, just post them here. We'll discuss them and see what we can do with it.

We can bomb the world to pieces, but we can't bomb it into peace!

Maybe we could introduce a player every week to those who are not so accustomed with the Jupiler league. You just open a thread with the players name and everyone adds info and maybe video streams or pictures. Maybe we can vote weekly for who this player (or ex-player) should be.

Help me, Jeebus!!!

Based on the performances during the matches?

- Reorganise the stickies. I think 'Coaches sacked' can easily be combined with the 'News and rumours'-one and combining 'young players...' and 'players that caught your eye' would also be a possibility imo. In addition we could then make a sticky of the PL results or so. Oh, and drop the 'a place to chat' in the 'The Belgian café: A place to chat'

- I like the idea of a video thread, also because some of the members here don't live in Belgium and thus have no decent coverage of Belgian football.

- Change our forum description (ok, stole this one from our Noorderburen )

Any suggestion for the describtion? Let me try

Do you hate technical football. Do you oftenly confuse the marathon of NY with a game of football. Do you think Maradona was over- and Yves Vanderhaeghe underrated. Can you handle your beer? Well, then the Belgian Football Forum is the place for you!
Apart from the beer handling, I will have to aply for a Dutch ID-card though. :depress: I wonder what mrs Verdonck will think of me


That said I already think we throw too many things in the News and Rumour forum. I prefer seperate threads for seperate topics, but that is a personal preference of course.

We can bomb the world to pieces, but we can't bomb it into peace!

I agree with the video thread. Seems like a good idea. Allthough I reckon most video's or links will be coming from the sporza-site.
Still thinking here for some own ideas.

"I never knew my birth parents. There was a car accident. my birth mother was incinerated, and I only survived because her smoking carcass had formed a protective cocoon of slaughtered human effluence. A Belgian man and his fifteen year-old love slave were looting the accident scene, came across a blood soaked baby, moi, and they raised me to be evil."

Not really. A wise man on the forum (gOD) could select some interesting players every week for which there will be a vote. The winner of the vote gets a thread totally devoted to him, somewhat like 'de volgspot' in studio 1.

It could also be about famous or infamous coaches or players of the past, like Van Moer, Van Himst, Grün, Goethals,... Like that the neutral viewer gets an allround image of Belgian football. For cracks like us it could become a true competition to find the most and most interesting footage about a person.

Help me, Jeebus!!!

I like that idea. Although I must admit I'm don't have any knowledge on handling digital footage

We could also act like the belgian league is a big deal and start a new thread every day in the world football forum, thus slowly attracting visitors/posters over here

Nah before you know it you look like a PL fan and I'd do anything to avoid that.

Maybe we should just change the forum "Belgian football" in "Beer football" . After all we are named the Jupiler league.

Help me, Jeebus!!!

How about fan footage or compilation films made by fans?

I like it! We can make threads like 'Gert Verheyen Vs Alessandro Del Piero', 'Chris Janssens Vs Frank Lampard', 'can Zulte Waregem win the CL?' and so on. That should get their attention.

Then we might as well add a forum description ala: "Have a beer and talk about the champagne-football of the Jupiler League, the lower leagues, the great past and bright future of Belgian NT and the talents of Kompany, Vanden Borre and other Defours; Lionel who? "

or

"Home of the best beers in the world, the best chocolate in the world, Belgian fries, Belgian waffles, Adolphe Sax, Breughel, Rubens, Magritte, Jacques Brel, Django Reinhardt, dEUS, Tintin, The Smurfs, Lucky Luke, Hercule Poirot... and on top of that we also offer some of the finest football in the northern hemisphere."

Hm, or maybe somebody else should take care of the forum description... :undecide:
