Current Events Sub-forum?

    I know years ago, we had a Political Asylum and we all know how that went down and now we can talk about current events, as long we don't talk about politics in it. So I'm wondering, we have a few topics going on in the Studio Lounge and not to get them lost or anything, can I suggest creating a "Current Event" sub-forum for them?

    No. Someone will whine because they can't ignore them.

    Yep. To be honest I don't know why anyone needs software help to ignore things. I just don't go into threads I don't give a shit about. Some people can't do that.

    So sub forum away my good man.

    That's pretty much what the Lounge is for. If something gets lost, it's not current anymore.
    Give it a rest.

    I understand and appreciate that, I just thought of maybe creating some other sub-forum. To me the Lounge we talk about literally just about anything in it. Just maybe separate a few threads, into a new sub-forum about major current events a mini-version of the political asylum and plus it kinda helps keeps the place clean and organize.

    We asked for an NHL forum and it took a couple of years to finally got one. Some tried asking for a App Forum and it didn't fly and now maybe this?

    There aren't so many threads in the Studio Lounge that one would lose track of a certain thread. If we had 100 threads a day and that Ebola thread you wanted to comment on was suddenly on page 6, I can see a problem. But unless you clock out for a month, I think the Studio Lounge topics are visible and manageable without a current event sub-forum. So I vote no. Just my three cents (mods get an extra penny to throw around).

    Like Casual said, that's what the Studio Lounge is for. I would say it's for everything off-topic but then a lot of threads would have to be moved there. :p
