Would you all be interested in a weekly "New Tribe of the Week" thread?

This could work a variety of ways. Off the top of my head:

1)I pick a random one I like. This is the simplest, however, very vulnerable to my interests.

2)A weekly vote, the day before the thread. The next day, the highest voted tribe will be stickied for the next 7 days.

3)A weekly vote for next week in the current winners thread. This would delay each winner for a week to two weeks after they have posted, but it would also allow more time to vote.

4)Post a thread each week and let people just vote up comments there. Do not post a new thread.

Does this sound like an interesting idea?

    I like it. Obviously we leave it to a vote and I like the weekly vote idea. Sign me up, I'll participate.

    I think the weekly sticky is a good idea, but leaving it to a vote could be problematic in the future (maybe OK for now). I think, eventually, Team Snapzu should promote tribes on the front page or in the lounge based on stats and a quality assessment.

    Maybe you can look at how reddit does it for some ideas (read the sidebar).

    In any case, I'm looking forward to it!

      Why do you think that it would be problematic?

      And I'm aware of /r/subredditoftheday. Though I'm not sure if they have a method to it. I think they just pick it. I want this to be merit based.

    I like it. Tribes get regular attention thanks to the normal posting, but the community choices get pushed to more visible positions. Everybody wins!

    It would actually help spread word of some more niche tribes that don't get exposure, or are starting out and nobody really knows but the idea is awesome.

    Yep, it'd spread the word about smaller tribes that don't have the exposure they should have

    I like the idea, and I have a minor suggestion to this... Choose a new category/theme each vote so it is not repeatable and every tribe will have the chance.
