Several members have mentioned that they would like to see some additional forum categories created on DDO. I am trying to build a list of suggested forum categories to add to the site and would like to gather suggestions. I already have two categories that several members have mentioned - Philosophy and a Mafia forum.

If you have suggestions can you list the top 3 forum categories that you would like to see added the site? For example,

1) Philosophy
2) Mafia
3) Guns n Roses

Thanks - Julia

Yes, perhaps not just Mafia but all such games in one.

3. Blog (?) - no real idea. :P

Economics isn't too close to politics?

I think what also needs to be addressed in a merging of boards, for example, Arts and Entertainment.
Pizza. I have enormous respect for Pizza.

We have science. :P

That's why I changed it. You could technically give it its own board, though. I mean, seriously--health and sports could fit under science and entertainment.

1. Philosophy
2. Games/Mafia (I'd prefer a board for just mafia, because of those mafia-board specific features that someone suggested in that other thread)
3. Economics
Should we subsidize education?

I think a philosophy board is the big one. Too many times I've had to put something in religion that doesn't really belong there.

I know what you mean sometimes I put things in society and they do not belong there either . . .

Yeah, that's an invitation to a bad direction.

Also any environmental issues can be covered in either science or politics depending.

I actually like the blog idea. There's a lot of personal stuff that gets said on DDO, especially in misc.

That would be Charlesb's forum.
