Well, sure Yvonne, I guess we'd just post what ever we think about the subject.
I can create a forum for Science in the Education & Entertainment category. I would need to come up with a double-word name to go with the rest of the forum topics, such as Science & (Something), and I would need to come up with another forum topic to add to the Education & Entertainment category so that I can stay with even numbers of sub-forums. There may already be one suggested in the "New Topics" thread that I am going to merge this one into. I haven't looked yet.
Yes as a non religious person I am not just interested in pure science either, so the middle path would be an interesting one to me.
Science & Nature?
As long as it's understood that "nature" is not the place to post nude photos.
Science and history would also work. I know that there is a lot of history that we could discuss, and @Mari North can share a lot of good information about the Civil War era. History is yet another subject that I am interested in; but usually am not sure where to fit things about that into the forum categories.
Nature and science will overlap because things like living fossils are actually part of both categories.
Regardless of how you set it up, I think that we will all enjoy contributing to the new topics, Ken.
@Ken Anderson, you can look at a few other forums to give you an idea how they have things grouped or worded.
I'm too lazy today to do anything.
I know that I can, but I have made a point of not doing so. Too many forums are copies of other forums, determined to do the same thing better.
I didn't mean to copy exactly, just to get a feel for the possibilities and adjust it to suit our needs.
I understand, but it's harder to think for myself when I have reviewed other examples so I try not to. For example, as a part of my job, I write descriptions of various categories. It is tempting to bring up the Wikipedia page, and I sometimes do that, but too often I then find it difficult to write a unique description of the category because the Wikipedia content sticks in my head. Maybe it's just the way that I do things.
Okay, it's all working great so far, so do what you do, how you do it.
@Ken Anderson, can we have a thread for Introductions, near the top for new people?
I think we do have one, Ruby.
Where do we pose the nude photos then???
Not easy to find, took me awhile just so that I could put that link there for you.
I'll be adding a couple of new topics from our poll soon, probably today. The winners were History & Geography and Science & Nature. If you can help me come up with something to pair Sports & Recreation with (since I add them in twos), I'd like to add that one before long too. Baseball is pretty much the only sport that I have an interest in, and I don't pay a lot of attention to that, but I know that others may have an interest in the topic.
We have a lot of topics here, and we'll be adding more. Not everyone will be interested in every topic. Feel free to ignore any topic that doesn't interest you, and this is true of threads as well. There is no need to post only to tell us that you have no interest in a topic. Others probably do.
We seem to have a lot of celebrities that have died, and the obits just get put in news, or entertainment, and all over.
Maybe there could be a pair that included celebrities/obits, and maybe fashion, since I remember @Von Jones was asking for that kind of a topic a while back, and several of the ladies were posting about fashion even in just the thread asking about it.
I am excited to see the science thread, and wonder if we can move some of the appropriate older threads into that catagory now ?
I just posted one about sunlight and moonlight that should be in science, and I am sure there are more that could belong there, too.
I will be moving relevant threads into the new areas as I come across them. You can feel free to point them out, as well. We could add a "Rest in Peace" section somewhere, perhaps.
Global warming topics...would that go in Science?
Since we don't have a mythology section, yes. More seriously, if the purpose of the thread is to argue that global warming is a government conspiracy (as I believe it is), then the conspiracy section would be best, simply because there are greater allowances for argument there. On the other hand, if the purpose of the thread is to discuss the effects of global warming, then it can go into the Science & Nature section.
And in the History section would that be the place to talk about the wives of the Presidents?
