Bluegill - Big Bluegill

Do you love big bluegill?

One thing I see on here is lots of great info, lost in space. How can we get some of our best stuff where anyone can find it? I have noticed 7.5 bluegill Sharon has been on a mission, digging through old discussions and asking questions. I admire Sharon. She knows she doesn't know and ain't afraid to say so. She asks anybody. I'm with you Sharon; I just know there's a pony under this pile of stuff somewhere.

Our groups would seem to be a start for organizing lots of our stuff. Group administrators, usually the one who started the group, have the ability to feature a group discussion in the group. Maybe that could be used to get key info to the top of the main page on a group. My HOW TO group is an effort to get some of the most asked questions answered in one easy to find place. From how to upload pictures to how to hook a cricket. I hope that we will all use it and contribute to it. But it is designed to be limited to actual HOW TO do something info, not general info. Bruce has a new group about fly tying instructions and pictures ONLY. The intent is to limit what is in that group TO actual demonstration of how to tie a particular fly. That’s a good idea to me. Easy to find a special thing in a special group.

There is so much info on here which relates to group interests that have already been established. But the info is not in the group. It’s just a blog or discussion that hasn’t been seen for awhile. Unless you are a digger like Sharon, it might never be seen again. Lots of the same questions keep getting asked over and over again over time. The answers are usually there, but digging takes time, and it helps to have a shovel, or other diggers to lend a hand. If you come across some good info on here, how do you stake a claim to the gold mine? By staking a claim, I really mean claim it for all of us. Make it easy to find. I don’t know. Tagging our discussions, pictures, videos and blogs would sure make searching easier. Bruce, as administrator, could go through all of them and tag them for us. I ain’t holding my breath for that. Way more work than I would be willing to do myself. But I can go through MY pics and discussions I started and tag them with key subject words. So can you. Look at my tags for this blog to see what I mean. You can edit your own pics and discussions and tag them at any time.

I don’t know what we could do about organizing this pile of stuff, maybe it already is. Too much organization stifles spontaneity and creativity, even may stifle interest. I’m just doing a Sharon thing.
