Carrousel selection?

Discussion in 'Messages for All Guests and Members' started by SmokinLogs, Aug 8, 2018.

  1. I’m just curious, who selects the threads featured on the carrousel, and what are they looking for when they make the selections? There is always some beautiful looking BBQ in there!

    As the saying goes, "If I tell ya who makes the choice then I'll have to kill ya". I think they're looking for something special in the post. First real successful attempt at something, something new to the site, well presented in the post, good tips. Basically something that makes it stand out.

    I'm pretty sure it has something to do with chicken bones and tea leaves.

    LMAO... Some funny replies, love it.

    But seriously,
    it's the Mods/Staff that choose various threads for their outstanding attributes.
    Those attributes being pretty much what Chris listed, something noteworthy, special and of community value, and good pics go a long way too.
    Many times the general membership will say in a reply that something is worthy of the Carousel, and it's not surprising when it is up there very soon after.

    I'd like to note that I believe that none of the Mod/Staff has the self conceit to put themselves up there.
    That is usually done by the voices of the membership and by another member of the Mods/Staff reacting to our comments.

    ...I actually thought it was randomly selected from newer threads this whole time. LOL.

  7. Haha this are all great replies and possibilities. It’s what I assumed, but I try not to assume too much. I do hope to make it to the carrousel someday! Thanks to everyone for getting back with me on my questions.
