I quite like diy & hobbies personally but if I were to change it it would be to kraftwerk so we get the occasional confused 80ís synth fans.

I think the only people typing DIY&H are people in the mod forum because I've never seen that typed anywhere on SA until this thread just now. What I'm saying is, we should probably not change it.

Yeah I mean I definitely am typing it more than most people.

Really we are trying to tell the rest of the forums that we aren't just old houses and free plumbing advice. We are that, but there's alot more in here too. I recently pointed a goon in a different subforum to our knitting thread and they said 'I would never have thought to look for a knitting thread in DIY' and a lightbulb went off in my brain. I think there's plenty of crafty goons without a good home for their weird hobby and we would like to let them know that this subforum can be their home.

How about Hobbies and Houses? The houses part is well entrenched, and all of us sickos with horrible hovels already post here, so put hobbies first for awhile to try and build up the part that (could) have greater mass appeal?

The suggestion for "Hobbies & Houses" is probably a good short one. Comedy option just rename to "Hobbies & DIY".

Seems like 'Hobbies & Houses' or some variation thereof is a winner, and we'll be sure to abbreviate it as H&H, not HH?

I'd trade it all for just a little more.



Often times I'm selling an old tool or something I think the diy folks would be interested in, and I'm okay with give-it-away pricing for a member but it doesn't make a lot of sense to post on the SA sale forum.(not practical to ship, etc). Wish we had a sales area here.

The way we made that work ages ago with the womenís fashion mega thread was to post a corresponding womenís clothing sale/swap megathread in SA-Mart that anyone could post in to offer stuff up. Let me ask in the mod forum and Iíll get back to you about what our options are.

AI and CA have dedicated marketplace threads that seem to work decent, might make sense to model it after those.

We have a new forum name

We need a new forum tag in the main forum index. They have to be 15x60px and like 1-2kB? and I am bad at photoshop or whatever-anyone feel like whipping an 'HCH' one up? I'm not sure what the font is on all the rest of them.


I think corgski is working on a swap/sell kind of thread for us.

I know crochet has a spot, possibly knitting. I saw someone mention weaving ---

What about lumping some/all as simply "Yarncrafts"?

I had suggested that in the knitting or crochet thread recently but the feeling seemed to be that folks liked having separate threads. Feel free to make a weaving thread or w/e if you want though!

Make a thread called "Loose Threads" for everything yarn-related (I dunno, macrame maybe?) that doesn't already have a megathread.
