Maybe we should also include important News articles? The thread could be a repository

**95,000 households are supported by rent supplement, which the Department of Social Protection says is about half of the total private rented market in Ireland.

In 2009 the Department paid over €500m in rent supplement.**
rte.ie/news/2010/0610/rent.html

10% of total residential mortgages in arrears for 90+ days
finfacts.ie/irishfinancenews … nter.shtml

There was a new scandal everyday around the time of the guarantee for months and each thing was worse than the next
and ive forgotten half of it. Linking them in here would ensure we NEVER FORGET :imp:

hmmmm… I can’t picture it working. It’s kind of natural that threads wander off into cul-de-sacs and die. It’s inevitable. If the problem is that it’s difficult to retrieve information, could a different search function solve that problem?

What about encouraging ‘Subject Tags’ for important or specific posts?


#4

or an FAQs type sticky with links to relevant posts for key topics


#5

Stickied while we think about it.

The search function is pretty sophisticated if you go into the full search.

A thread of “key posts” might be the thing, where each post is a “key post on x topic”

That way the search function could be limited to searching the post subject and it would show up.

I like this idea. The way the site is set up works nicely for long term posters who have at least scanned at some point most of what’s on the site already and probably depend mainly on the latest posts page. But for new users and especially those who don’t intend to become active pinsters and are just looking for some general advice on property or opinions on a particular WIW.

I feel like I want to tell them to read National Debt, End game in Europe and Long Term Value of Irish property… So maybe even having a link for ‘thinking of buying and looking for advice - here are some topics you might find useful’ link?

on improving the site;

You see a lot of +1s out there, but rarely more than one person doing it for a particular comment. Might be good if there was a +1 button, and displayed at each comment there was the number of times it has bee '+1’ed (and a link to see a list of who they were). This might help to give a sense of consensus as threads reach their natural conclusion.

There are a couple of people who’s comments i find worth reading. It’d be nice if there was some way of checking to see any new comments from those people when i log in.
