    I would be interested in hearing Jay's thoughts about his vision for the direction of the site, as well as comments from the various members of what they would like to see going forward.

    I would like to be able to bring the playlists back, but without the ParkTunes/Brigante issue. In an older post, Jay mentioned that he had a solution to this issue. I thought about posting the correct playlists with my own itunes/amazon links, with any funds being donated to charity or the like. However, I haven't really come up with an acceptable alternative yet, but I am hopeful Jay has.

    The idea of member blogs sounds interesting as well. It would be nice if there was a way to require a user name/passcode to access the blog, assuming one wanted to go in that direction.

    I would also like to get this site more traffic, becoming the premier site for discussions related to Disney theme park music. On that note, I have been thinking about leaving the Rodentsections community and only posting information here, now that someone is actually taking time to administer the site.

    That would be a sad loss for Rodentsections (notwithstanding the numbers that have dual (or should that be duel, :eek: ) membership).
    I would be sorry to see you leave but do understand that just one site would involve enough work.

    I do have a solution in mind. I will fill you in on the details later. In the mean time, I have already made one related change that you may or may not have noticed. Take a look at the very bottom of the page.

    It is possible for me to configure the website so that members can create private blogs. I am not sure whether that is a good idea, though. I would hate to wind up with a bunch of private cliques that result in most people feeling like they haven't been invited to the party. I am still pondering this one. I would love to hear what everyone else thinks.

    I do know that member profiles and blogs are not going to be visible to guests (persons not logged in) as I really want to encourage more registrations.

    I noticed the legal disclaimer. How useful do you really think that is?

    I understand the concern. Perhaps not allowing private blogs here is the wiser decision. I can look at alternatives for the use I had in mind.

    Why not just require a user to register to access the site, opposed to allowing guests to view the boards?

    Among other things, it would kill visits from Google, Yahoo, Ask, etc., which would result in nothing showing up in search engine results. We actually want more rather than less in order to build our membership.
