    does that make sense?

    There is no discernable difference in the two off-topic areas, aside from the fact that they are in different areas and will have different facilitators. The main point is to just spread out the discussion across the board so that it doesn't take the main focus of the site, as it did with AE. Also, this should make it a bit more manageable.

    I think that's a good idea as far as spreading out the off topic discussion. I see only one potential problem with the idea and maybe y'all already have thought of it but wouldn't there be some confusion as to which off topic forum to put a thread in? Would there just be a general rule that there couldn't be duplicates or clones of a thread in both forums? And am I correct in assuming that whichever of those two forums had a specific thread started in it would take precedent over the other for such a thread?

    Well, with the example I brought up earlier, one of the off-topic sections seemed to revolve around the posting games and less serious conversation while the other had the more serious discussions.

    oh, okay! I just became confused by Aaron's post which said there was no discernable difference between the two areas.

    ok, thanks for clearing that up. It makes sence to do that and learn from what happened over at tdt.net and not make those same mistakes.

    The basement here is scary.

    There's monsters down there. You know like those things that come out of thinnys? Those kind of monsters.

    What in the blue hell are those called again and why can't I remember?
    A true firewasp ninja would never wear such a ridiculous sweater.

    There's logic in nonsense.

    There would be no prerequisite for types of threads for the forums. You could post any thread in either room, and the Facilitators between those rooms will just need to keep their eyes open for duplicates, and threads can be merged between forums. The oldest existing thread on the topic would be the one that remains, and the new thread would be merged into it. The thread would be placed--for the time being--in the forum that the discussion was most recently in. Example: There is a thread about Evolution in The Dixie Pig, but it hasn't been active for a while. Someone starts a new thread in Blue Heaven about Natural Selection. The facilitator in Blue Heaven remembers that there is a thread about evolution in the Dixie Pig, so they do a search and find it. They then move that thread to Blue Heaven and merge the new thread with it. This way the threads are merged, but the poster of the mew topic can find the new thread without having to check the other forum.

    Please note, though, that this is not going to be something that we are going to be hardcore on. If there are some duplicate threads across two different forums, it's no big deal. They can be merged anytime. We just have to make sure that the members posting in them last know where to locate the topic after the changes have been made.

    Of course, I am thinking that there will be some natural shift to where one forum talks about one type of thing, and the other goes somewhere else. But it won't be games and such. Those would go in Fedic Station.

    Have I confused you all more than before?

    Do we have to allow the post whoring games--word association, who's above you, whatever? There are a zillion other sites where you can play those.

    We don't have to allow them, since there is nothing special to be gained from a high post count, but I would still allow them, simply because it would be more work to try and stop people from posting them than it would actually be to moderate them. Those threads--because of how they are set up--should never need moderation. No disputes, no bickering, none of that shit. So it would probably be easiest just to let them exist.

    unless some asshole kids spoil who dies for you in one of the games, that is.

    Ahh, yes. That is one situation, but the majority of the games that I've seen aren't set up in such a way that they could do that. I'm guessing it was Word Association that this ocurred in? I just don't see disallowing a type of thread because one of them could potentially cause a problem. We'd just put it in the rules to not use spoilers.

    I am sorry that that happened to you, though. We're gonna have to be really strict with spoilers.

    Matt

    Do we have a spoiler tag option, or is that something we're gonna have to install?

    I'm sure there's a way to add a spoiler function. My question is, how long after a book's release should we consider info "spoilerworthy"? Certainly, in the month or two after it comes out, but by now we've had DT7 for almost three years. Do we still have to consider information there spoiler-protected?
