Title
Template for realsuggestions posts

Short, concise description of the idea
A template for posts in the realsuggestions community.

Full description of the idea
The realsuggestions community is easily the most enjoyable part of the acclaimed website LiveJournal. Obviously people should post suggestions in it all the time. Unfortunately, they do not.

I suggest that part of the reason for this may be the dauntingness of the task of creating a post that fits the suggestions format. I further suggest that that problem may be alleviated with the creation of a template containing the basic Z format for a post, such that users can simply "fill in the blanks."

An ordered list of benefits
  1. It would be easier to make posts in realsuggestions.
  2. If we're lucky, this could lead to more people making posts in realsuggestions (but let's not get ahead of ourselves here).


An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  1. Someone would have to make the template.
  2. Not sure where to post the template (see below).


An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation
When I finish writing this post, I could copy and paste it into a text editor or something. I could then go through the pasted post and remove all the parts that are not a template, in the manner of sculpting an elephant. When that's done, the resulting product should be pretty close to a template (though I may have to add a <ul> tag to this section in case someone wants to use an organized list instead of a few short paragraphs as I have), and I could then post the finished template somewhere and make a link to it from the userinfo of the community.

One possible hitch is that I'm not sure of the optimal place to post the template, i.e. whether it should be an entry here, a separate file hosted elsewhere, or just embedded in the userinfo, or what. However, I'm confident that this can be worked out in time.
