Just my two cents here, maybe this would be too complicated BUT I think along with "Organizing", "Active", and "Dormant", the 'organizer' should put a guesstimate of how many active participants they have. It doesn't have to be exact, but the title could go something like this "Active: Crochet Cardigan-along (20+ hookers)" that would give me a better idea as to what is going on. Also, sometimes I just like looking through the corchet alongs to see what other people have done before I commit to the proposed pattern, so if i know there's a lot of people who have done it I'd be more likely to browse the thread.
P.S. I also think active crochet alongs should be encouraged to post a thumbnail picture. Like others have said, I like to visually see what they're talking about before looking further.

I know this has been a little "Dormant" but I thought I would give my opinion since it doesnt look like these changes have been made yet.

I like the idea of active, proposed, dormant titles on the threads.  It is really hard to tell right now is anyone is actually still working in the CALs.  I know I have been interested in a couple of them but then noticed the last post was like 3 years ago and though it is kind of lame for my to crochet-a-long with myself.

I think that putting a rough date of when it started is a good idea too.  Knowing that people are still active in a CAL from 2005, might make me take a second look at it.

Just my opinion.

Thanks for the feedback! It's definitely still on my list of things to do, but given that it's the end of my last semester of classes and I'm trying to finish prelims and other requirements to be a dissertator (I'm a PhD student) my "free time" has been a bit limited. I'll definitely get to it at some point in the coming months! Smiley And continued feedback is always appreciated!

Yeah, I think "Dormant" would be better than closed, because if it said "Closed" then many ppl would click away from it instead of on it.
"Reopened" or "Reactive" would be cool too because then you would know it was a past CAL and has been revived like a crocheted zombie.
I also like the rough idea on how many active ppl are participating.
Proposed is great too, to let you know it hasn't been started but might.

Sorting would be a brilliant idea. I haven't read everything( i meant the comments) so i don't really know if i missed anything Tongue
Well, it'll help because i'm usually sad when i open a crochet along with such a cute picture and get excited while it loads only to find out that it's closed already. Not that i can't make it anymore but it'll mean i missed the fun!
So if the title says CLOSED, i'll know not to keep hopes up to participate in it.
It should be put into action, really Cheesy
