Is a reading room a good idea for the Elsmar Cove?

OK folks, where to now?
Maybe we shouldn't think it through too deeply at first, but get something started and let the response show us how it might be improved.

What about just a separate forum titled The Reading Room and a few categories such as visual aides, articles, e-tools or some such? There might be a need to include abstracts, 50 or so words perhaps, quickly describing the item for the searcher-user's best time use.

'Stickey' threads are threads which are listed first on the first page of a forum. Some forums have 'Sticky' threads and some don't - It depends upon the forum. Usually 'Sticky' threads are in some way 'Important' and this is a way to make them stand out.

Let's start out with a blank forum before we start making numerous categories (sub-forums). I'd also like to keep from overlap. For example, how will we differentiate what an e-tool is and why it should be a category separate from the existing Tools, Improvement and Analysis forum. What will distinguish what should go into a 'visual aides' sub-forum? There's already a lot more complexity in that the number of individual forums since the expansion last year. I think we should keep the potential for confusion at a minimum.

OK folks - The forum is here. Can we come to a consensus on what should be posted in this forum and a description for the forum?

I need a 'Description' for this forum, please.
I will work on one - others should, too, and maybe we can reach a consensus.

Probably something along the lines of:
A Forum where Registered members can submit "stand alone" articles and "white papers" on various subjects allied with Quality and Business Strategies. Other members can give feedback in the thread for each article.
