A Minor Tweak

Postby Capellini on Thu Dec 20, 2007 4:37 am

Observant members will notice that Miscellaneous Serious Things and Political Issues have merged into Current Events. Should be more or less self-explanatory.

We also have a new forum in the Serious section, Demographics and Hot Topics. This section is for polls started by STAFFERS ONLY to get an idea of what and who our community is composed of. We'll be doubling up those polls to include discussions on some of the more polarizing topics that keep coming up, in the hopes of keeping that from clogging the forum.

Questions?
True terror lies in the futility of human existence.

"The only freedom deserving the name, is that of pursuing our own good in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it. Each is the proper guardian of his own health, whether bodily, or mental and spiritual. Mankind are greater gainers by suffering each other to live as seems good to themselves, than by compelling each to live as seems good to the rest." - John Stuart Mill

Should not the forum section just be called Demographics?



There aren't any "hot topics" in the section, as I understand the term. Also, wouldn't having a section for"hot topics" imply first establishing a topic in an existing section and then moving it after it attained the status of "hot", so to speak?

It's loaded with hot topics. Please go back and read where we've defined what a hot topic is: discussions on some of the more polarizing topics that keep coming up,.

That would include Abortion, gun control, health care, etc.

Oh, I see.

Topics as in what the discussions are about.



I took topic to be a synonym for "thread".


In retrospect, I'm kind of stupid.

If you come back with the information, Captain Darling will pump you thoroughly in the debriefing room.'
