Well it's a suggestion for the forum really. Wouldn't it be fun to have a topic for each park where people can post their photos with characters from said park. So obviously DLP meet and greet photos would go within the DLP thread for these etc. I would also like to suggest to allow only the best photo from every meet and greet. This to avoid that there's a whole string of basically the same photo of a single meet and greet. If people violate the rule, the admins should have the choice to choose a photo themselves and delete the others

You know what might be nice...if you linked forum topics to correspond to the blog entries. That way, people could discuss the blog entries and the news we read there.

Hey Loren

Great idea! Actually something like that is already in the works :P I just wasn't able to complete it and test it before I left... but sometime soon when a blog post is made it will automagically create a forum topic for it and link the two together

Excellent, Jon! The other thing I was thinking is that it might be good to have a forum for other Disney properties that aren't theme parks, but do have characters. The Disney Cruise Lines, the El Capitan and Disney's Soda Fountain & Studio Store, Disney Vacation Club Resorts not at theme parks (for example, the upcoming Aulani on Oahu), etc.

^ I like the above suggestion.

Also, what would be good is if on the main site, you could go to the Character's page, and there'd be a little tick box where it said "I've Met this Character".
So you'd log in, and then you could tick the boxes of all the Characters you've Met, and then you'd have a handy Character Checklist of all the exciting Characters you've Met to share with everyone else!

I really like the suggestions so far - would definitely like a 'tick-off' option as suggested by Belleboy Alex!

And the idea from Loren with regards to other Disney-themed properties would be great! Whenever I've seen Disney Cruises being advertised, I find myself extremely interested and tempted to go on one... but I'd love to know first how likely you are to get large amounts of Character interaction for example!

I like the idea of the character "I've met this character" suggestion and it is something that will be possible to add once we get a few more changes made... so stay tuned for that!

As far as other Disney properties, I definitely agree that it would be nice to have them too and we do plan to add some of them... the only difficulty is we haven't been to some of them so we don't have pictures or personal experience to talk about them (which is the reason Hong Kong currently isn't on the site). We do have areas for Disney on Ice and once we have been on a cruise (early next year) we will definitely be adding the cruise line to the site.

Please keep the suggestions coming... they are great Big Grin

Here's an idea for the forum:

Taking a cue from the Upcoming/Rumored Projects thread that was started once on WDWMagic, this forum should have a similar thread somewhere, listing all sorts of character-related rumors, including ones mentioned on this site and forum as well as from other sites. And we could categorize them accordingly (such as "Confirmed", "Legitimate, but no timetable set in stone", etc.).

If it's alright with you folks, could I start one?

Hi Philip,

I think overall that is a good idea; however, I would rather wait awhile until doing that. Right now the forums are still young and it isn't hard to find something you are looking for unlike on wdwmagic on others where there are 1000s of thread and it can be impossible to find something. For now, I would rather people just create new topics and have the discussion in them which will help the forum grow more than one consolidated thread... if you see a rumor on another sight please feel free to create a new topic about it (just link back to where you saw the rumor)... once there are more than a couple pages of topics in each section than I think something like this would be very helpful... we just aren't there quite yet (but really want to be!)

Good point.

Another thing I'd like to inquire about is that I wish there'd be some way to help update character pages, because a lot of them have incomplete information (appearance locations missing here and there, etc.) and I think we should all get a chance to help out with them.

I agree, a podcast would be rather interesting. Even just recapping on the weeks (or months) news and rumours.

Although an interesting idea, I don't think a podcast is in the running right now LOL. I can't even keep up with the blog and photos, without a podcast! :P
Maybe when I become rich and famous haha :P lol

Maybe its just me, but I have a hard time navigating the forums. It would be nice if the topic of the latest post was in the forum home page instead just the person's name who posted. Does that make sense. Maybe since I am so new here, I am missing something?!

There is a drop down menu, and the second item on it says Recent Posts ( http://www.charactercentral.net/Forum/recenttopics.aspx ).
Click that and it will show just a list of all recent topics. You can click the time stamp next to the topic to go straight to the most recent entry.
