This isn't going to happen. We've tried dozens of times. You're flogging a dead horse.

Not really a pressing need anyway. Most philosophy discussed on here is political philosophy or religious philosophy anyway.

You aren't the sharpest bulb in the box, are you?

Why would you want a sharp bulb?

No, it is just no one has ever beat the horse long enough. And that is only if the horse is completely dead if the horse is mostly dead and you beat it long enough it will eventually start working for a more in depth discussion of dead vs mostly dead refer to the video

Is this a dicsussion over a horse, or over a new forum. Plus, would the Mod actually put one in? Is DDO a democracy?

Not much. We do not get to elect a temporary dictator either.

Welcome to DDO, originally it was to add a philosophy forum but then it degenerated into a discussion about light bulbs and dead horses, and now it is on the difference between completely dead, and mostly dead.

As for DDO being a democracy it depends on who you ask most people on this site believe that this site is run by the all seeing tyrant overlord named Phil who bars people because he can and is on the payroll of the GOP. As for me I think the users should each pitch in 10 bucks and just buy the site.

I don't think that's a 10/10. If I had wanted to say something like "brightest bulb on the tree", I would have.

The end result of that is also fail. Until we get 250,000 users we won't have any new forums.

I would support a philosophy forum.

If they don't do it, we could just all agree to put philosophy threads in the science forum or misc forum.

Who is the DDO President right now? Lwerd? Ragnar? Kleptin? Whoever it is can submit the request or simply make a command decision.

Why misc.? Wouldn't education or religion be better?

It's more less split between the religion, society and politics forum. Putting it in science is retarded.

What kind of forum doesn't mold itself to the reasonable and proactive desires of its members?

Though the forum doesn't really suck much~<3

Maybe put one in every forum (that makes any sense). Then there will be places for different kinds of philosophy.

Seriously!

Where do I go to discuss an irreligious meaning of life?

Where do I go to discuss ideologies?

Where do I go to discuss philosophers?

Where do I go to discuss the source of logic?

This forum is SEVERELY lacking in quality if it doesn't have a forum for all major sections of debate. I joined debate.org to talk about my philosophy, yet the most valid subforum in existence here about the subject is the Miscellaineous section.

I think religion. I think thats where it was when my irreligious meaning of life philosophy was questioned.

Religion, science, society, education maybe.

Where do I go to discuss philosophers?


Education, society

Where do I go to discuss the source of logic?


Education

Make a philosophy thread in the forums. Btw also add misc to it all cause it could fit there too. Just depends on the topic. I do agree with putting a philospphy forum, but I think we need to not only tell the mod but also show the need with all the threads.
