There's been a lot of renewed interest in DKos Asheville recently, primarily as a result of Randall's work organizing our meetup April 20.  His latest count has around seventeen folks signed up; so if you're interested in joining us, let us know.

We also thought we would start a weekly open thread to keep each other informed on things going on in Asheville that local kossacks might be interested in, and to stay in touch with each other and build a more cohesive local Daily Kos community.  We're looking at maybe doing the weekly thing on Saturdays.

And I'm wondering how we can make the group more useful for each of you.  I started this group two years ago in February, 2011, right when DKos 4 became live.  Admittedly, the group feature in DKos 4 was not what I, and many others, thought it was going to be.  And after a lot of initial interest in the Asheville group, participation fell off as we each settled into our own way of integrating DKos 4 into our daily lives.  However, I have noticed that one way some groups have maintained regular participation is through scheduled open threads; so I thought we could give that a try here.

I'm also wondering if it would be helpful to change the "roles" that are assigned to each member.  Currently everyone is listed as a "contributor", but I'm thinking it might be helpful to change that.  Those of you who are in other active groups that have experience with this, please share your experiences with assigning roles.

So, any suggestions on making this group more useful to you, please let us know.  And enjoy what so far has been a beautifully sunny day in Asheville!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
