Thinking Cap Thread

I think we all agree that it would be a shame for this community to be broken up. Aside from the ongoing discussion in the Bug Reports thread, there are various scenarios what to do about the current situation being tossed about currently in the comments sections of posts by MbD and Bookstooge, as well as a thread created by Cheri. Maybe we should consolidate our discussion in one place, though. From what I can see, thoughts run the gamut from

* exchanging blog URLs of our non-BookLikes blogs and following each other via the dashboard-style feed that many blogging sites (such as Wordpress and Blogspot) have -- and if you do have a non-BookLikes blog, please do share its URL in the thread created by Cheri (http://booklikes.com/thread/2553/non-booklikes-member-blog-urls) --

* to moving to another site with acceptable features (the agreement of a majority of those who have taken a closer look seems to be that The Reading Room is not a viable option, whereas aNobii, while a bit barebones, seems to at least offer a number of features we might be interested in; see threads here:

and here:


* to the idea to try and acquire control of BookLikes outright and run it ourselves:


So I thought we could probably use a central place where to put on our thinking caps and bring all of our ideas together.With that in mind, I have created a Thinking Cap Thread: http://booklikes.com/thread/2557/thinking-cap-thread in the official BookLikes group. Please keep the conversation going!!
