The idea of the Spotlight forum came about due to us being a victim of our own success in many ways. We created the likes of Open Mic King and Word Drop to drive activity in the Open Mic & we've got a buzzing OM section.
This creates two problems:
1) Drops don't stay on the first page for long & this makes it sometimes difficult for people to get feedback
2) Sometimes drops that deserve or need feedback get missed - whether that's because they are dope, they are from a newer member or it's someone who gives a lot of quality feedback that doesn't always get returned.
And thus the idea of the Spotlight was born - a place where we can move threads to ensure they get special exposure for a short period of time. We aim to rotate the work that's featured to keep it fresh. We'll also try & explain why we're moving things in.
Clearly, to make this a success we need YOUR help to ensure that you give feedback to the work that's up here...otherwise it may as well be in the OM!!
We will also be looking to bring other threads in here, so hot discussions of interest, Audio Mic drops, battles, and potentially even things like Rutter's 1-2 punch league if that makes sense to do so.
We'll be looking to evolve the concept...so please feedback as time goes by to help us understand if you feel like it's working or we could be doing things differently to achieve the aims we set out to achieve.
