And agreed about the politics/religion. That's partially why we created a new sub forum for it. It should be treated like the trash talk forum and everything that happens inside should remain inside. We shouldn't let those disagreements spill over into other parts of the board and that probably is the biggest problem. It does keep things interesting, yes, but it also drives people away when they see these types of attacks being cloned out in the open.
One other thought I have is to kind of restructure the social groups so that each team's group is listed under the team's main forum, like the news forums are. That way new users can find them easier and they will overall be easier to get to.
What do you think?
Would be excellent, I think.
