I agree that at a novice level we are better to keep things totally blind. I think Courtney's team uses a lot of follow-ups and co-instruction because they are so experienced. For beginners like myself, simple is best.
I agree that we should probably have a separate forum for "target practice" (heck, why not give it that name too).
I've been posting in the general forum because I don't know where else to put it, and I wouldn't venture to tell farsight how to do things but now that the targets are seeing some success involving the community, yes let's make it an official piece. I propose this as the general guideline to posting (but rules light, it's okay to not follow these rules)
1. POST - post the target, suggest a reveal date. Add details like where to send submissions or if you have any other instructions to viewers. But try not to make it too complicated. And really try to keep clues and front-loading minimal. You can also suggest specific methods of viewing preparation (specific meditations? statements at the top?)
2. REVEAL - indicate in the title (or even a separate subforum) where you reveal that specific target. It could be a little past the reveal date but ideally not before. This is also a good part of the forum for people to be able to prove if they were making submissions before the reveal date. Emails with timestamps etc. The more you can prove that you were able to discover the target before the reveal, the more you can show the community at large that this phenomenon is real.
Myself, I don't want to instruct Viewers so much as to *how* they derive their information. Someone may find a whole different way of finding the information unconventionally. If they show that their method is bringing about accurate predictions, then they've proven their method works.
