Quote from: hungry_ghost on July 18, 2019, 08:01:59 AMI truly appreciate all the time and energy that people have invested in setting up this new board, and I don't mean to sound ungrateful. Like rearranging furniture, this was a bit of work, I'm sure. But I'm a bit uncertain about "General Discussion (That is Serious and Not Fun)" vs. "Fun and Games" as an organizational principle, and more generally, my preference would be to hear more voices before this kind of change is implemented.

It would have been good for the initial post in this thread to mention this. As it was, it sounded like a unilateral decision made by a single person.

The last thing I want is endless "academic" discussions about minutia - the kind of stuff that wastes everyone's time just like in real life committee meetings.
Quote from: monarda on July 19, 2019, 06:59:51 AMThanks, polly. I like the Fun and Games child board. But where should the "Cheer Us Up" thread be filed? General or fun? I'm finding that is one of the threads I am missing.
QuoteFor the goal of having more people with a variety of viewpoints joining us to participate in lively discussions, having a front page of every section that has a good variety of types of threads and reasonably active threads will likely yield better results in terms of having members of the lurkariat join us or at least that's a hypothesis I'm currently testing in various ways including starting new threads in boards that aren't as active.
