A project subforum?

Has this ever been thought about?

There seems to be more and more people restoring/refurbishing Ribs these days, it would be handy if the site had a dedicated subforum for viewing these type of threads. I must admit I look through other people's projects picking up hints and tips and basically seeing how other people do things. It's a great learning tool and I dare say it makes for a better end result.

The problem I have is finding the projects. There are some real hidden jems of knowledge and expertise buried deep within Ribnet and the search function doesn't always come up trumps, it all depends on how they are listed.

Just a thought.

There is a place on this planet for all of Gods creatures.........right next to my tatties and gravy.

I think that separating out project threads could be a bit tricky in practice as there is so much overlap with other more general threads. It would be a good use for a tag though, which is something we've not really gone for in a big way.

Anyone up for sifting through the archives adding "project" tags as appropriate?
