Why not recombine Current Events with OT?
« on: February 07, 2004, 06:04:51 AM »
Didn\'t you guys make the Current Events forum to get rid of the excess threads about Iraq(or something like that)?

It is a pretty slow forum and would benefit from having more exposure to some of the threads over there.

Survey says-I agree.
Who is this anamoly we call Jumpman? How is he able to do what he does and still survive after years of torment? It seems he feeds on the hate, growing with an intense passion to put unassuming members in their place.

I agree too.

I don\'t...
July 2002: If you had bought $1000.00 worth of Nortel stock one year ago, it would now be worth $49.00. Enron, $16.50 left. Worldcom, $5.00 left. If you had bought $1,000.00 worth of Budweiser beer one year ago, drank it all and turned in the cans for the 10 cent deposit, you would have $214.00. Based on the above, my current investment advice is to drink heavily and recycle.

I agree, if something politically important happens just make it a sticky in OT.

Please don\'t do this.  We are in a presidential election year, and I predict there are going to be A LOT of political threads in the coming months.  I\'m going to start many of them.

There is no advantage to combining the forums, only potential disadvantages.

Or is it because you think you\'re gonna win the mod spot and get to moderate CE?

Vid already said there was only one mod opening, so I assume it will include OT and whatever else.  I also assume that means I won\'t win...

I want to keep the forum no matter who the mods are.

Yea, I already stated my opinion on this in the other thread.  Essentially Current Events is the info without half the spam.
