    I messaged Cody earlier - what about inner game? Really where PUA begins right?

    Well this is an interesting development. Taking the community to a new direction seems like a good idea. I'm a little concerned with some changes that may seperate the community a bit between experts and newbies, which the leveling system was developed for I assume. However, some posts people want to be directed at a certain PUA and I can understand that. Increasing inbox size may close off the community a little bit so perhaps a sort of "tagging" system would be a good idea, such as the way facebook treats photos. That way posts are still open to the entire community to read, learn, and even teach while an expert is tagged in this post so that they can give their input at a more convenient time and it won't be missed.

    I don't know if such a tagging system would be possible but you make a valid point on the forums being closed off and limited to the 'experts'. That's why I propose to allow aspiring PUAs to PM the experts when they have made a thread that hasn't gotten a helpful enough response in 24 hours. They should send the link along in the PM so we can check it and if there is no confidential information given by the aspiring PUA, the expert should answer in the thread itself rather than in a PM so everyone can see the answer. This way the forums will remain open and we just step in when no one has answered one's questions.

    That does sound like a good idea. For newcomers if there is a way to make it a "one click option" then I can see this being a popular aspect.

    We all deserve smacked for not bringing up Inner Game. +Rep to Rs5096

    I agree with you BatMan, I was just trying to figure out a way that put the least amount of stress on Bill. He's already made some pretty sweet updates, and my goal isn't to create a divide in The Community, rather impliment a system that would save us all time: "All" including both the advisor and the advisee.

    Virgil makes another great point that I wanted to bring up (among others), so let me get into those:

    I've contacted and received positive responses (Still waiting on a couple) from the following experts:

    BatMan
    Bill Preston
    Cody
    Rs5096
    Suave Kino
    Virgil
    Xavier

    I chose these people (and refrained from choosing others) for a variety or reasons: rep points, most recent activity, trustworthiness, etc. Obviously we are a live community so this list will needed altering as time goes on.

    Virgil metioned a key word: confidentiality. As experts we all agree to a confidentiality agreement with those who seek our advice unless they say otherwise or the mandatory reporter clause. If anyone is not okay with this please let me know.

    Here is the layout that I have ultimately thought as best. Once again, please let me know your thoughts:

    Your Screen Name

    A Short Bio (optional) I thought this would be a nice touch for those who want to share a short biography. If you do please send a manuscript my way. If you already have and would prefer not to have one please let me know of that as well. If you want to give me your basics I can also write a blurb about you (English Major, remember). If you want it verbatim please say so.

    Area of Expertise Virgil has done a swell job of making a list. Some of you guys have offered alternative topics. I'm not sure how everyone would like to handle this. Just use verbatim the topics you offer? Try to fit them under Virgil's categories? Let me know.

    Material Offered (optional) We teach in two ways: threads and posts. The downside to posts is that I cannot make a direct link to them. However, I can and have already made a list of each of your most influential threads (if that is your primary way of teaching). I will send you each a message before going live to see which ones you would like to have taken off, added on, or just not have this section altogether (or let me know now. That's cool too, but do it in a PM so nobody gets a sneak peek. We want it to be a great unveiling ). The only person I had any serious trouble with was Kino, obviously because I wanted to include every single thread he's ever written.

    Criticism welcome and if you can't get to me PM just give me a bit. 10 is a hard number to work with :P

    Love it guys. Great idea.

    One thing that is important is to try as best as we can to discuss things in the threads. This allows us to provide the greatest overall impact (besides you will be answering the same PMs over and over from different guys).

    If you are an 'expert', and you get a PM from a thread - do your best to answer in the thread and then provide the link BACK to the original question seeker to your answer there.

    Once again, hit up me via email or Virgil via PM if you have issues/concerns or questions.

    So this is a huge ass document. 10 pages as of right now. If everyone on the list could PM me an outside email address so I can send out a rough draft that would be lovely.
