    One thing we're thinking about adding to the FPGeeks Blog is a weekly Featured Forum Post. This could be an ink review, pen review, how-to, etc. Basically, it would be any post started by a forum member that contains useful information. This kind of goes hand-in-hand with Tweets we put out as well (if you're not following us on Twitter, you should be!). I created a poll for you to cast your vote and please leave comments/thoughts/ideas below.

    It's always good to learn something new.

    It would help maximize a members online time, especially if it tends to be limited at times. I would personally appreciate a "heads-up" from Dan & Eric on things they deem significant enough to bring to everyones attention!

    I'd like a klaxon any time Krazyivan posts one of his pen collection, personally

    If your cat is sticking their tongue out because they're relaxed, it's most likely to happen when you're patting them or when they're asleep. why do cats tongues stick out

    What do you expect on an unmoderated forum?

    If it's someone trolling, then feeding the troll only guarantees it will continue. If it is just some run of the mill spammer, then why not just ignore it? Lots of forums have embedded ads. Occasional spam posts are no different.
    The world doesn't end.

    Or anyone willing to take on the role. I hope someone is found to be a prime mover of sorts, a steward and a facilitator.

    Although I think it's ridiculously expensive, if I was faced with a situation where I could pay vBulletin for the version 5 upgrade in order to get rid of all of the spam I'd just do it.
