Clown Should Rumple have his own Forum?

Hey everyone,

I would like your opinion. I've been thinking about starting a "Rumplestiltskin" forum and moving all of Rumple posts into it so they are archived in one place. It would be in the Green Room Category, under Blah Blah Blah.

He has singlehandedly (or perhaps double handedly) amassed about a third (1139) of all posts within Blah Blah Blah and 20% of the posts to all forums combined. Some of the stories are gems and collectively they form quite an album of work. Anyone could post there, of course, but it would give Rumple a dedicated canvas to fill as he pleases.

What do you think? Rumple, any thoughts?

Jim

P.S. Goo0se

Question

Oh, and if you think I SHOULD start a Rumple Forum, what should it be called? I'll take suggestions.

Goo0se!
Rumple's Playhouse
Crikey, Gorblimey, Oo0ps...
Rumple's Neverending Online Show
The Rumple Diaries
Holy Gherkin Twisties
Rumple's Carpel Tunnel Show
What's the Answer to the Question?

I don't know if it would be wise to attempt to impose order, the metaphysical ramifications could be disasterous.
Plus He would never stay in the box.

On the other hand if you asked Rumpel nicely perhaps for the sake of an organized site for all he may be into his own forum area. Ask Rumpel, not us.

If he doesn't want his own space to rant and rave I'd like to some of the "gems" get added to the library area.

Question

Frack has a question. What exactly does Rumple do during a show? Can read other ones about people juggling, unicycling, rola bola, or whatever, but never once read what Rumple does. Anyone help?

Yeah all 1130 odd (sic).
I, personally, enjoy his ramblings but it must be confusing for newcomers to enter "Blah, blah, blah" and find 15 consequative bits of Rumples ravings, whilst other entertaining stuff is shuffled off the screen and sometimes into (scary music here pls) "The Other Pages of Obscurity".
I think he needs his own space and vote we call it "The Life of Rumple" and hope it haunts us forever.
Long live the Crumpledforeskin, sorry was that Fumbledumdskin, whatever, the guy in the pigtails and kilt with bells on is cool.

That much creative output more than earns his right to have his own forum. A grand land with all kinds of free associative graphics. Besides Peters point is well put, a newbe might get confused walking into the 'Blah Blah' section.

Not only should he get his own space, how about asking if he would record something that we could all listen to?

Chance,

Great idea. Does anyone have any Rumple video or recordings?

Hey Rumple! Send me a tape of some of your bits. I'll make mp3s and put them on performers.net.

Jim
