Just an idea.
How about a forum dedicated to the discussion of Cryptids?
There is already a SIG dedicated to this, keeping track of updates, discoveries and otherwise compiling information on numerous Cryptids. Other ongoing efforts are also in the works regarding this.
Perhaps a forum in the members area might encourage others with an interest in the field to discuss theories, ideas and, eventually join the Crypto SIG , thus becoming part of the more active aspects being covered there now.
