Post who you would like to hear the Panel interview on the podcast here!
Why did someone create a new thread when there was already one going on for a very long time on exactly the same topic?
I don't get it. It's just creating a new thread for the pleasure of creating a new thread...
When you ask a question in your first sentence, and then come to a conclusion two lines later without waiting for an answer, it makes your original question look rhetorical. Nevertheless, I will answer it.
I created this thread on the request of the Panel when we reorganized this top section of the forum in late August. It is to encourage Panel participation in the board. You can read the announcement about it here
In other words, it's so that the Panel would have an easier time receiving and replying to board member suggestions. They read this thread for sure. They may or may not not read the other thread.
Hope this helps!
