Lightbulb Did You Know....

We have an incredible amount of knowledge on this site. Something occurred to me last night - wouldn't it be cool if we had a channel for flyfishing trivia?

Here's how it might work:

1 - we appoint trivia editors who take suggestions from members or dig up trivia themselves

2 - all trivia will be saved in a database, so new members can read old trivia if desired

3 - we publish trivia items regularly using an easy publishing tool. If people send in their trivia, we should have a good backlog and not run out

4 - a "Did you know..." link will be added to the discussion board header

Trivia Editor Job Description:

Uses a publishing tool to add trivia to the trivia database using own knowledge and member suggestions. Publishes items onto the live page regularly, depending on how many there are I guess.

If this is interesting, many editors can play - the system supports it. There would have to be an editor in chief, who decides which trivia item goes to the front page each day / week / etc.

For now we can start with one trivia-savvy volunteer.

Compensation:

We will include you as a staff member in any industry perk programs we can qualify for - although we are no Time Warner just yet we are becoming more respected in the industry and expect pro-programs for editors. Editors directly affect our success by making our content better.

Any interest?

I would like to be a contributor but I have zero experience with publishing tools though I don't think I could qualify as a trivia editor since fly tying and its history and techniques is my forte.
