Actually, this seems like an interesting idea if we divide up Capital into these respective sessions. This way, it will be much slower paced (take a full year to get through Capital) but will surely attract more participation, especially from students.

The problem, of course, is that there are 33 chapters in Capital plus the appendix. The only way we could do this properly is if we created another sub-forum partition (like "Marxist Analysis") and called it "Reading Capital" with only the moderator (Eauz) being able to create threads (not even sure if this is possible).Although I probably won't have the time to participate, when I read about this idea of having a specific number of threads, I wondered if it was actually a bit of spam work, rather than usefulness to the forum. I'm not sure how much discussion you'll have for each chapter and then to add in that we'd have two parts to a chapter (66 threads) is really turning it into a spam job. I think if people are going to participate in this project, they start out in one thread (we'll make a new one) and go from there. Should there require extra discussion on a specific chapter (maybe it's longer or has more information), a thread can be created. In addition, having a plan so that people read the first chapter in 2 - 3 weeks and within that time limit, discussion is made. Should you miss out on a specific section to discuss, it's not like PoFo shuts down any posting of questions/comments in general, so it's possible to ask a question in another thread. Maybe have one thread devoted to chapter readings and questions and another thread for general questions and questions about previous chapters that might not have been answered within the time limit of the chapter given.
