Lists thread

Postby Serpent » Sun Dec 31, 2017 2:37 am

Some time ago I proposed the world challenge but nothing ever happened :D I started the social tracking thread with that in mind but it turned out useful in its own right, and not just as a resource for this challenge/thread.

By now I don't really feel the need to start an elaborate challenge :P The idea is to use lists to keep track of anything related to travel and culture. (You can also use other forum features like progress bars or images) Feel free to explain what you're tracking and what "counts". You can use wikipedia's various lists.

The only limit is that I wouldn't want this to turn into a wishlist thead. (That can be started separately if you want) So at least one item on each list has to be "done" (not necessarily abroad or far away from home). It should also be clear what you've "completed" so far and which things are your plans.

Also, we already have a thread for countries/cities visited. You can do some more specific tracking here though.

The coolest part: you don't have to post in English here! But it's better if your lists are google-translate friendly, and please include a short explanation in English (my suggestion would be to keep each list's title in English and write the country names themselves in other languages).

Note: I've renamed the "world challenge" thread to World challenge: discussion. Please post any questions or comments there, including any replies to people's lists.

Obviously the forum rules still apply ;)
