I think DDO needs to add a category for history in debates and forum post. I've mainly been putting historical post in philosophy or sometimes science, but I think it is a large enough category by itself to have its own.

This was brought up ages ago and almost everyone supported it. I wander why they still haven't done it.

Neh, thats too many categories. Historical debates can fit under miscellaneous, politics, or society depending.

Not a debate about this historical thing was better than that, or theories about what happened to people or ancient civilizations....

Society, art, entertainment, technology, and maybe economics could all go. That would make room for another category.

It's actually brought up periodically, and we did a poll and there just wasn't very much support for it. I would like a history category, and really enjoy discussing history. The problem i have with discussing history is, generally speaking, few bother to understand, and really appreciate the context, but rather only understand the facts without being able to attribute true value on them.

That seems to happen a lot. My opponent will say something like, everyone did this or that. I would give multiple exceptions, but they would either completely ignore it, or say something stupid, like, it didn't happen, its scientifically impossible, or scientific evidence outweighs it.
