Are there things you’ve been anxious to discuss about Adam Lambert that haven’t been related to one of the articles we’ve posted? Do you want to list concert tickets you have for sale, or maybe find tickets for a certain venue? This is the perfect place to do that!
Many times Sue and I have seen discussions start on an article that have nothing to do with the topic. While these discussions sometimes take off and get lots of interest, they sort of hijack the topic, and readers who want to see comments related to the article don’t find them, and check out.
Maybe you didn’t know we have a FORUM section on this Glambsite. We haven’t promoted it before, and for that we’re sorry. There are many topics that were started, but since people didn’t know about the FORUM, never took off. But let’s see it take off now! In the FORUM, you can start your own discussions, join other discussions, or just let everyone know something you feel is important to know about Adam.
1. Go to the top of this site and click on FORUM. The first box that comes up is Most Recent Topics. Keep scrolling down – bypass this list.
2. You’ll then see some boxes with the headings of Adam Lambert, American Idol, Community, and Announcements & Information. (Fernando created those headings when he originated this site and for right now, those are the ones we have to go by.)
3. Click one of these BLUE headings. Discussions already in progress will appear. You can contribute to one of these.
*** If you were a user of the forums on the American Idol website, you’ll feel right at home now!
4. If you want to start your own discussion, click on any discussion in the main heading you want it to appear in. then click the Add Topic button. I would imagine most things will go under Adam Lambert or Announcements & Information.
5. Name your topic in the title box, type your comments in the text box, and click Post New Topic below the text box.
I just started a topic under Announcements for concert tickets called Adam’s Concerts – Who has extra tickets? Who’s looking for tickets? Let’s use this one heading all summer for Concert Tickets. If everyone who has a different city to post for starts a new topic, the info will be too hard to find and the Forum will get muddied up with multiple ticket listings.
Help your discussion succeed by commenting about it on Twitter and Facebook. Remember to give the Heading/Title so people can find it!
I’m really excited to see this succeed and hope you will enjoy it. We really can do a lot of good with an active FORUM! But please Glambs, let’s keep it clean! We know about all of Adam’s “gifts” and what we’d like to do if we had a moment or three alone with him! But here’s a required warning: If topics are posted that are found to be inappropriate, they will be deleted.
Can’t wait to hear back from you and see your input!
