Society & Culture Section
« on: July 20, 2010, 01:43:09 AM »



Oooops just realized this thread was here after emailing Whitney lol ah well


So anyway, a Society and Culture section. There quite a few atheist related issues that I feel would be best suited to a category like this.

Maybe there needs to be a general discussion about the structure of the forums if Whitney is okay with that? Personally I would like to see a games sub-forum in the LAL so one would know where to find the discussion threads and the fun/game threads. I feel a little uneasy about putting up game threads in LBL.

I don't mind eventually restructuring the forum but don't know when I'd have time to do that...it would require moving a ton of threads around.

I replied to keith's pm about the society and culture section wondering how it is not already covered by activism, media, current events etc but haven't gotten a reply.

'nuff said, it's pretty damn good as is. It's 'fit for purpose'. I suppose each of us brings different ideas from different places we have frequented and would like to see here.

What I decided to do was split the meetup and activism forum section so that we have "meetups and conventions" and also have "social issues and causes".  

I think this will make it easier to find meetings, activism opportunities (causes), and at the same time provides an area that is meant for discussing social issues (society and culture issues).

Personally, I like the idea of having a dedicated arts section.
