What should be done to renovate the Arts and Literature Forum?

I am striving to improve and renovate the Arts and Literature Forum.  Previous attempts, like the AE Chain Story, have not been successful, so I will consult fellow AE forumers for advice.

While the AE Arts and Literature forum traditionally serves to update forumers on historical books, I think the forum can serve multiple purposes and do that and more.

You may vote for multiple categories.

The renovation is in its incipient stages and will need as much input as possible from everybody.

Oh Poirot, nice options.

Well... I still think we should have a forum where we can post our article submissions for the newsletter. That could be here. You could also move the old newsletters here as stickies once they're done in the spotlight.

You could start an online book club - pick a history article or short book that's available online every week and let people discuss it. That'll make a busy thread even if there's just two people who actually read it.

You could have a thread for people's favorite art - resize any pictures that are posted and try to keep it mostly text, people's feelings about paintings, sculptures, etc.

There's just so many things related to literature and art and they don't all have to be boring and stuffy. You could have a historical fashion thread, or anything silly and fun like that. A few threads about the Renaissance or whatever.

You could pick a historical artist - author, musician, whatever. Post a new one once a week or something like a literary version of "Today in History".

Three most popular votes so far; Nude Women, Mila, Poirot is a Geek

Nude Mila, Geeked Poirot? 

No offense, just trying to come up with a logical solution according to the data at hand......

I've had an idea for a while now, a rival to Total Quiz, we could conduct it on your forum if you like and give it in part a literary and arts theme... An AE Treasure Hunt....

I think it is a great idea!  I need support from more forumers (as well as from either Komnenos or Imperator) before it is a go!

i was thinking to move all Music related threads to here.

also encorage people to post art pictures and discuss them here,

the Historical picture forum shoud be for historical events and more photos than discussion, while here it should be a discussion about the Art and literature in general not events to be exact.

the music stuff would help alot i guess.

 

also wanted to point out  Porn is not allowed here, AE is a forum for all ages so 18+ stuff is not allowed in the Public forums.

nude statues isnt a problem i guess.

I agree with Azimuth...all forms of art should be here...nudes, abstracts, etc.. as well as music, photographs, books (which I think should be given a review by its reader to give an idea of subject matter to all others). Great suggestions Azimuth!
