    Lightbulb Organizing Hot Topics

    I’m wondering whether the way “Hot Topics” is organized is effective in catching your attention and getting information across…? Here’s another format I’m thinking of trying. What are your thoughts?? Thanks!

    Saving Geocaching...http://www.geocachingmaine.org/forum...ad.php?p=41221
    Please let me know about these changes:
    1. Grouping topics by category or interest, topics in caps
    2. Shortening forum titles to fit title and link on one line
    3. Continuing to limit number of topics to keep newsletter short (this is done by selecting forums that remain popular throughout the month and/or has important information geocachers will benefit from knowing.
    The other idea I had was introducing the link with a more descriptive title than most forum titles are, but I felt as though I’d be taking the intended title the owner of the forum gave it...but anyway, any ideas about organizing or just getting the information across efficiently would be welcome!

    Hiya....just curious....but could you make it so it doesn't cut off the topic sentence?

    For example, the first one says, "2008 Geo," but can you make it so it says the entire thing? Clickable links would be great too...

    Question Everything shows right now

    Thanks CacheMaine. Knowing that you want to read the entire topic helps. I won't cut them off then to save length in the newsletter.

    However, do you like sorting them alphabetically, as they are now, or by topic, as posted here?

    Thanks, attroll, they've been going out perfectly!

    I myself was also wondering about the same thing. Can anyone elaborate on the affect that you guys made at the CITO in Brewer and how much trash was actually picked up. Thanks
    Just smile it won't crack your face

    The statistics on sanity are that one out of every four persons is
    suffering from some sort of mental illness. Think of your three best
    friends -- if they're okay, then it's you.
