New for 2013 in Gatlinburg

We’re starting Block Watch in Gatlinburg:

Introducing our neighborhood’s web site to discuss and vote up or down GNA ideas: http://gnafriends.ideascale.com/.  Write up your own proposal, comment on other’s ideas, and vote your favorites up to the top. Its another way social networking and polling can bring diversity of opinions more into the open.

Here is another way to discuss ideas on the Internet that stimulates a back and forth dialog with elements of voting mixed in. Its pretty simple to use. Just give it a try by proposing a new idea or commenting and voting on others. When people comment on your ideas, you’ll receive an email alert. For more information, see IdeaScale.

Let’s see if we can put our ideas together. Are two heads better than one?
