All that white space on the bottom right- perhaps rotate a charity that we care about such as Habitat for Humanity or run a contest where the winner's favorite can get an embebbed link

Problems and solutions column like the Q and A that is now popular

Offers deals of the month?

Offers to link with each other on websites for SEO?

I would love to  see a list of mortgage notaries, plumbers, termite guys, inspectors that we trust an angie's list where we star them. I do transactions all over the United States and would trust Active rainers

I would hold a internet conference with regional participation .  I would improve analytic data so we know who and how many consumers are on active rain and then improve dialogue with consumers with agents and other real estate professionals. It is our responsibility to improve and help each other but also it is our responsibility to educate the public about or industry.

I am on board with Ben.  Ramp up AR for its original purpose of being a resource to the real estate community as a source of education and exchange and create a separate "by invitation only" area for content experts to serve on a localism site geared to both the public and real estate community.

Thank goodness that is not my call or my worry. I have complete trust in the new ownership and management and know there are good things to come. From what I have heard so far, they want it to be the best and will listen to what the membership has to say.
