      If I may suggest, perhaps rather than making this forum a separate section in it's entirety, it would do better as a subsection of either General or The Pub/Bar area of the forum.
      Still interesting addition, I can only imagine the numerous threads made by Johnblade that will fill this area.

      Edit: Also, as a secondary suggestion regarding additions to the forums, I feel the site may benefit from a "Debate" sub-forum, designated for all serious debate topics to take place in.
      Anyway, /2 cents

        debate section sounds like a interesting idea.

        Can you tell me more about it? and do you have any thoughts on what debate topics you'd like to make yet?

          As for a Debate forum, it would serve to isolate not only existing ongoing debates, anything from differing views on Religion, Politics debates, opinion vs opinion, ect, really any well thought out topic that would be designed for people to voice differing view points, and defend them in a respectful manner.
          Personally, I'd feel topics such as this, which boarders on incoherent pointless trolling (at best,) should remain in the Underground, and as such, similar topics would have no place within the Debate section of the site.
          Yet if someone were to actually make a reasonably thought out debate regarding Evolution and Darwin's theories, it would therefore be placed in the Debate area.
          Another personal take on this would exclude topics regarding opinions of Anime say "Akira vs Ghost in the Shell, which is the best" from being posted there, rather they'd remain in the Anime section.
          Overall, though a Debate section would encourage people to voice and defend differing opinions, I'd say as is the case with the rest of Hongfire, it would be expected members remain civil, and refrain from being insulting of other members and their view points. Therefore some form of disclaimer would probably need to be posted within that section of the forum, to ensure things don't get taken out of hand.

          As for topics of Debate I'd currently see myself making, I suppose ones involving opinions centered around "Paranormal/Physic/Magick" subject matter, and various reasons people have to support their belief or disbelief on the subject at hand, would likely be that which I'd circle my own debates on.

          Anyhow, glad to hear you're considering this.
          Cheers.

            We will think about it. But maybe we don't want to get involved in politics too much.

              This forum completely destroys 60% of General Chat and Discussions ;(
              Debate sounds like a good addition though

                Surely it'd be the underground that takes a blow from this, think of all the news that johnblade posts there, i still like the idea, it may tempt some people to put other things in the underground, i'm hoping anyway...

                  Seems to be interesting. Actually, now General Chat and Discussion CAN be used to General Chat and Discussion and not just news.
                  Probably it means that less threads will be sent from there to Underground too, where the trolls would party over it.

                    If anything it more than likely helps the forum by being able to throw all the "news" articles into one place for moderation that way allowing for a certain level of decency at best.

                        and pretty much the weird news that johnblade delivers still warrants a boot in the underground section... i think

                          Awesome idea, now the general chat section wont be flooded with news such as
                          "Woman gets punched by a gekko after arguing over her child's right to homosexuality."
                          Everytime I stop, and stumble~ In doubt and darkness~ I close my eyes and think back to you~ We made a vow, a promise to carry onword~ I'll see it through~

                            On the surface a News section sounds like a good idea. However the more interesting news for example things that have to do with astronomy will become a debate. Michael Means Business idea of a debate section is actually a better idea. In that the more serious or interesting news will cause a debate.

                            The problem I see with a debate section is that I have not seen a civil debate here for over 5 years. There are many members that can have a civil debate, it is those that do not know how, to or find it funny to troll a debate that will ruin it. What is the worse is when members say something in the debate that has zero to do with the debate or is not needed at all to be said. I am not saying that if they do not following the latest post if it is kept on topic and does not look unneeded.

                            What I mean by unneeded and to be fair I have done it myself is like in this thread when TSR put in.

                            He could have as easily have said something along the lines of 'tabloid news will still go into underground'. Even that is not needed, it should be a given.

                              Well, the thing is, most news here in HF are the really stupid ones like "wife cuts penis of husband's gay lover and so on and so forth...then aliens came along blah blah blah" and other just can't help but sway the topic to something else and make it a huge trollfest.

                              I think there should be regulation too on what news can be discussed and what news can just be closed off the bat without hesitation. I dearly respect their opinions of how they like or dislike what just happened but of course the attention given to that thread could have been given to some other thread instead, like "The new discovery about life-saving plants" or "Patriotism: how much do you love your country?" etc. etc. and cause unnecessary web traffic (sort of). Not to mention some members post pics (mostly unnecessary) and really crack up the server. Add to the fact that those crazy tabloid-level news really put off some members, especially the new ones or the ones who just lurk the HF forums. If I were to make a decent discussion with my colleagues in a coffee shop I would not put tabloid headline topic in the mix or else they would just laugh at me and say I got nothing better to do.

                              I'm just suggesting though. Well the underground is there too, might as well throw those darn news in there.
