But, I feel there needs to be a change to the Forum set-up. These are my proposals:

1) Amalgamate the Technology and Science forums. They both have very little activity, but Science usually gets a bit more. On-top of that, many of the Tech. and Science topics are closely related.

2) A "Forum Games" forum should be created. This would include any form of forum game, from Mafia to Ragnars D&D game, to Freedo's numerous games.

3) Arts and Entertainment should be combined to form a "Media & Arts" forum. Arts as it stands doesn't warrant enough activity to be a whole forum.
Pizza. I have enormous respect for Pizza.

Like the third.

Good proposals, but since there's no real advantages to the site (other then more clarity) the mod has no incentive to put the time into doing this.

I agree. Those are all good ideas.

There has been many people who think adding a philosophy section would be beneficial. Not my thing, but meh. I know alot of people here like it and think it deserves a separate section.

As president, user-ownership would be at the top of my agenda. Until then I would assemble petitions of grievances on matters.

The president has absolutely no power on DDO.

Philosopphy and religion are closely linked as arts and entertainment are. I don't think theirs much of an advantage of adding it.

Eh, I don't think splitting the Religion forum would be that great. I personally like the variety of topics in the Religion forum.

The clarification would be helpful.

What I said was, it simply doesn't make sense for WebCorp to let amateurs fiddle around with WC's software, so there is no way we could do it ourselves even if we could do it ourselves.

Exactly, which is why user ownership will be extreme fail.

Poor Puck. It wouldn't really do much good to seperate them.

Philosophy and religion overlap, but they are clearly distinct and need their own separate forums.
