    I stumbled across the "nitrogen" thread and I thought it was great and the information invaluable. I'm sure their are many more of these gems tucked away that would be of real value to some of us.

    The search function is great if you know what you are looking for but there is the old saying "I know so little that I don't even know what I don't know yet".

    I jump on Lawn Site from time to time when I just have a few minutes to kill and not enough time to really get into a project. Many times the current threads are not relevant to me. It would be nice to have a "Classics Threads" area to go to educate myself.

    Sean, feel free to take this idea and run with it.

    Dave, nothing beats Calvin aka Jack D aka Ultimate Lawns aka Fairway Lawns with his infamous Stair Climbing System...but that one was (a real gem) and just for laughs.

    I think that would be fun and educational....but I would need a lot of help - I don't know if my opinions of the "classics" will be in line with everyone else's.... maybe we can set it up so there is some sort of way for people to recommend threads and either we place them or even a vote takes place....thoughts?

    Take 75 of the best classics and put them in there own forum. Maybe change them every month or so. I know that takes a lot of time though. Just a thought.:confused:

    Heres another thought that you could use to help everyone
    Take the 50? best money making or work saving ideas posted and put them in a forum. If any more new or good ones come in they get added to the list.

    I think this is a good idea, different topics would be helpful.
    • classic accounting
    • classic management
    • classic time savers
    • classic comedy (for peeing in the bushes)
    • classic which truck/engine is best

    and so on. I think it is important to have the whole thread provided it is a real classic with lots of good accurate information. The give and take of the different members is what makes this so much better than reading the information from a book. I would much rather have input from several members about the same subject rather than one "experts" opinion from a book.

    what do you guys think?
