I was looking forward to this, thanks team!

 

I really hope this will be a welcoming area for discussions and the moderation will be fair and unbiased :lakitu:

I look forward to Espresso and Chemist returning from their bans. :gaycat1:

Great idea.  Good place to keep up with current events, but also nice to have a place to avoid when I come to the site for some lightheartedness.

I'm open to this change :clap3: Sometimes in the Lounge I feel like fun threads about things like french toast got bogged down by political disasters

Could Civics be added as a Sub-Forum to the Lounge? If not, it's fine, I'm just being lazy and it'd be nice to more easily jump between the two. :mandown:

 

Also, if a mod wanted to, it's absolutely no rush, and I'm just super OCD and went through like the first few pages of the Lounge when sorting by most views and collected all the URLs in case a mod, whenever they have any free time down the road, wanted to eventually move them over into the Civics forum (completely don't have to at all, as well):

Politics, ha lowkey dominance over The Lounge. :fan: Moving them eventually over would I think also help make it easier to find the most popular threads in the Lounge that are not politics-related, aswell.

I'll work on this later tonight when I'm working through my political shows. :foxaylove3:

 

As for making it a subforum of The Lounge, we chose not to do that simply because we think Civics can be an attractive subforum for possible new members and hiding it as a subforum (similar to the Member's Lounge) wouldn't be optimal. As can be seen, threads that will go under Civics attract a lot of attention and debate and thus deserve their own forum. I know it's an adjustment (I'm struggling with going the Lounge looking for political threads as well), but we'll get the hang of it and we think this will be better long-term.

I just realized I've somehow only had ATRL zoomed into 150% on my browser for probably a year now and thought the Civics link in the top navigation was hidden underneath a dropdown menu on purpose but finally zooming out shows the navigation is responsive and Civics actually shows when not at 150% zoomed ddd how embarrassing for me. I suggested it being a subforum solely cause it was always under a dropdown for me. Nevermind!

 

Ignore the first bit of what I asked and thank you re: the threads! :heart2:

Archived threads cannot be moved over for whatever reason. That said, I moved all the others into Civics. :heart:

Civics seems to be a smash hit section, meanwhile The Lounge is serving Plastic Hearts tanking on the albums charts after Dua snatched Prisoner away from Miley's album!

Now with the COVID, political and serious discussion threads moved to Civics, Lounge seems kinda...bland. :gaycat6:

 

I was one of those people who suggested a Politics sub-forum, but I think a Civics sub-forum makes a lot more sense, so I am happier with the way things turned out. Maybe someday we can have individual base threads for each politician or famous person that is not in entertainment. 

 

I was wondering it would be feasible to have a mega China/Russia/Afghanistan/Middle East/Israel thread, similar to the US Politics one. It need not be political in nature though.
