    Question What do we do next year?

    The year is slowly winding down and our position looks pretty solid in the FB standings. Maybe it's time to figure out what we want to do in the next year. The way I see it we have 4 choices:

    1. Everybody crunches what they want and we all have fun.
    2. We could try the FB thing again.
    3. We could do project of the month again.
    4. We could do FB and try to incorperate POM in the FB framework.

    Just some thoughts on the situation. Any other ideas?

    Re: What do we do next year?

    If we go with PotM. What about letting everyone vote for 3 projects at a time. We tally the votes, and the 3 top choices win. We repeat every 3 months. That way if a project gets on the list again, we still include it. And I wipped up this to make choosing easy.


    Code:
    Project:              Choice:                               Votes:
    
    ABC                     1                                    --

    Well, it seems like most people are not interested in doing anything as a team next year. I would have choosen to do POTM every other month but I think I'll be like most people and just do what I want to increase my bottom line. I'm beginning to think the fun has gone out of this team.

    It sounds like most of us are for the POTM. I'm down for whatever. I do like Formula, but i think it was hard on some to keep switching between projects and hard just because of our numbers to keep with the big teams. Not that we didn't make them nervous .

    That's why it was so fun!

    I like option #4. Do FB and use POTM to incorporate projects we can steal points on.

    Re: What do we do next year?

    I found it very difficult to switch projects in my case. I've alway found the join project feature very buggy and have to resort to using command line commands to get things to work. But most projects don't show you the information needed to join if you are using the command line. Instead I've had to join via the web interface, and then read the contents of my cookies before I could find the required data. Then I have to copy a long string of characters that IDs me to the project. And its not the same ID that they provide on the web interface.

    Then on top of that most projects don't work well with Linux. And others aren't good with slower CPUs.

    So I've basically stuck with what worked for me. I tried to be more active with FB and POTM but they were just too problematic for me. So I'm sorry I haven't been able to participate more with this.

    If I read this right nearly everyone picked PTOM with a possible FB connection. I'll start a new thread so we can figure out what to do.
