A great suggestion from Jon Ericson is to have Weekly Topic Challenges, these would involve 4 steps:
Step 1: Ask for topic ideas.
Step 2: Post a challenge.
Step 3: Profit!!!! Tally the results.
Step 4: Repeat until no more topics are left.

What do people think of this idea? Do we want this on The Great Outdoors?
Please post your feedback to this idea as an answer.
