Is it time to revisit the floating clubhouses?

I decided to enhance searchability. The Zawinul tag will now be added to the clubhouse titles. It doesn't work retroactively, at least yet.

<a href=http://www.techrepublic.com/forum/discussions/102-341593-3421223> Secret tunnel #3 </a> : Leads to Clubhouse #2 which is nearly empty.
Remember, you can add a link to a discussion (or to a post buried deep in a thread for example) to the clubhouse, then not only can you find it later, you're also telling the rest of us that you're interested in pursuing that discussion.

The point is to help us all focus our participation on the stuff the rest of us is likely to actually read, get that synergy up a bit in this hostile climate. Follow the secret tunnels through the morass to find the other clubhouses, in which you'll also find some guidelines for making new ones (simple, really - just create at will and two-way link to the latest).

I posted stuff on the TR Garden Club

I can't get it to even be included in the most recently posted list. I tried several times.

I did post a "Water Cooler" subject in the main discussions, because I had no choice, and it does come up when I post to it.

It seems to me, that TR has decided the "Water Cooler" stuff isn't worth listing in your most recent posts. I also think it doesn't comprehend the off-topic tag from the previous incarnation of TR. I could post till the cows come home (when is that anyway?), and it does not even register.

I think floating clubhouses is a temporary solution to a frilled up problem.

Otherwise, post in the main discussion area and you will be counted.

You know what, its pretty dead right now, but we'll get our mojo back.

Inquiring minds want to know.

I think we discussed this in the prototype...

It's an attempt to fix the fatal lack of synergy in the new forums... when we can't see where our peers are active, it's easy for good discussions to die in infancy.
So, the idea was to have these threads (the clubhouses) where one can post a link to a discussion one is participating in, like an advertisement for one's peers to give their views or otherwise.
I guess it's a bit too cumbersome a method though, as it hasn't taken root.

Maybe someone else will figure out how to get some CPR done on this thing... or maybe we don't need it? I dunno.

Some still care enough to click through these old posts, revived by something bright and new.

The above is an example of usage.

Just in case a demonstration helps.
