I think there are to many Politics threads drowning out what I believe the lockeroom is meant for and that is more light hearted discussion.

He have Recipe Subforum, birthday wishes Subforum and plenty others, I think this is one that could see some good use.



(Mods I know I asked about this in the feedback and support forum, but I thought it would be best to get a poll from here. if you want to move it feel free)

I don't think it's a bad idea, as much of the locker room (especially lately) seems to get cluttered up with multiple political threads.

I would be in favor of that as well. I grow tired of seeing Obama's name on every thread when i come in here.

I'm down with that. Sometimes the normal threads get lost among all the politics.

Yes....I vote for censorship! If we can't say good things about Obama, we should all be gagged...or politics should be banned entirely!

I don't know if it should be called "politics & religion" because the Star Belly Sneetches already have a P&R forum. And if Killer is going to be the Mod, he should be put through the same vetting process as the highest offices in the land. We demand a squeaky clean P&R Mod. No "troublesome" history. No "influence" peddling. No sordid dalliances. But no litmus tests. :chuckle:

The problem with sub-forums is you attention ho's can only get so much attention with a much smaller sub-audience, so the mods end up having to move everything around because the weak-minded get confused easily and ignore the rules and just slap crap up everywhere..

A Forum for Politics or how about "Current Events"

Locker room stays light, "Current Events" can cover all news of the day.

"Sanity" isn't a prerequisite, as is evidenced by the swamp on the Potomac. We demand high moral fiber. And antioxidants.

"Some" have "suggested" that there were "inappropriate things said" over a "can of Coke" in "mixed company" just 20 short years ago. And you have not been forthcoming on your stance toward people of "some other race". This and more high tech lynching, er, vetting await you.

What's the difference? If we had an Obama forum, there'd be numerous threads started up about Madame Rotweiler, Madame Pit Bull, The Mad Drunkard and KooKoo Bird Reid, thus clogging the Locker Room up again. :screwy:

More importantly, can non-mods ban mods on principle? Sort of like a "Citizens Arrest"...there should be a Posters Mod Ban Amendment to the Rules and Regs of this here forum

I say just give every member that reaches 500 posts his or her own sub forum, which they can moderate any way they see fit.:wink02:

Chaos theory would hold that eventually this act could yield conditions that would end of the world as we know it.:sinking:

I like the idea of a sub-forums. We could call it Grant Street or something.

A while back I was trying to start non-political topics (although I've been too busy to keep up with that lately.)

I don't like this idea. It's not like the Locker Room is the most heavily trafficked place to begin with. Every time I've seen something like this done on other forums, the end result is that the Locker Room (or equivalent "parent" folder) ends up being super-slow or dead, and the political forum (or equivalent "splinter" forum) ends up being the same 6 people arguing with each other over and over, and eventually that gets old even for the regulars, and they get worn out and the splinter forum dies too.

Or maybe that should be the forum about porn and hentai.

Can we have a hentai forum? Please? I'll volunteer to moderate it.
