    Hello there,

    As this is an experimental forum, I figured we could have somewhere to post suggestions. Feel free to post here anything you would wish to see in the Debate Forum.

    Thanks,
    Crysiz

    Less Crysiz.

    LOL JK

    I'd actually like for it to be extended to current events in general.

    What do you mean with current events? As in the topics to discuss?

    Yeah. Like, not necessarily a debate about them. But if I'd like to make a topic about, say, some uncontroversial scientific discovery, it'd be nice to have it be spam-free and moderated in this forum.

    I'll look into it, I like it. Kind of a news thing I suppose?

    I believe Nome is talking about discoveries and news stories that have the potential to be excellent discussion topics but free from the spam of the normal RC which keep it from being said excellent discussion.

    It might send the wrong message though. IE, discussion goes into debate forum, spam and jackoffery goes in the direct RC.

    Yeah of course, it could get to be a subforum or a separate forum inside Random Chat, but still heavily moderated.

    As long as people frequent it it's possible.

    I agree it might send the wrong message, but I'd say it's quite arguable that idiocy is going to happen in RC regardless.

    But yeah. I say integrate it with debate. Call it Debate and News. The rules would have to be modified slightly, but so far, I don't think we've had much problem with people not following rules when making replies (or I haven't really seen much of it).

    GravedamN: Posting in a legendary thread.

    Is there any way that this forum/moderators can do something to promote the issue portrayed in this thread?

    Yeah, someone who I've never seen post on this sub-forum should totally moderate it, makes perfect sense.
