Is it time to tweak WBOTD???

Post by Ocean on 2012-11-15, 22:14

It is hard to write the WBOTD as I gotten busy at work and it isn't fair to Eddie or Dave to pick up the slack.

What I am thinking of going forward is a Watch of the day WOTD. I think this would be easier going forward.
I would like to know what everyone thinks.

Thanks O

O, I've always been impressed by the dedication and even stamina of all the contributors to this feature; even the entries that involve mostly cutting and pasting can be time consuming, especially if you're one of only two or three members routinely contributing.

Perhaps we might consider a 'Watch Brand of the Week (WBOTW)' iteration? It would keep the same very-worthy purpose, but [hopefully] wouldn't be as difficult/inconvenient/tedious to keep up-to-date. Just my two cents...

BTW, the Watch of the Day idea sounds intriguing. Would it be a watch brand, or would it be something like a member highlighting a watch from a personal collection?

I second the idea of not doing it everyday. Maybe a 'watch brand spotlight' which can be added whenever a cool brand is found by a member or, as mort said, do it weekly instead of daily.

You actually beat me to it Andrew, everyday may be a bit too much ...weekly sounds more doable

I think a WBOTW is much more doable and does not place undo burden on any particular member......

I do enjoy WBOTD. Have learned a lot from the different brands and enjoy participating. Do agree with the guys here. Weekly, or the 'spotlight brand' as AJC suggests sounds good.
