As I mentioned in one of my comment replies, I will present a simplified outline of my proposal to see if that offers any clarification.
Here is the process as I envision it:
- Simple registration for screening and classification purposes.
- Registrants are collected into one master list through which all screened links can be accessed.
- Sub-lists that are derived from master list and divided into categories will appear in separate locations for those who prefer more definition in what blogs are.
- Due to the better organization, list can be accessed according to alphabetical, topical, audience rating, and other methods of approach.
Some of you felt that my suggested method would create too much work for the administrators. There were also mentions related to the complexity of maintaining multiple lists. The point of my proposal is to address these concerns. The primary work would be programming the system that would automatically administer the list. Once the system were in place the list, the categorization, the screening, and the cleaning would mostly manage itself if done correctly, with minimal overseeing by administrators. My goal is more efficiency, greater ease of use, and less maintenance.
That's my vision at least. I think some of you saw what I was seeing or something near to it. It's something that will require more thought. I continue to be open to questions and suggestions. Ideas?
