What if the section was "Life as an atheist" and went in the Community category.

It would be non academic yet still indicate what the area is for.  Most people don't read the descriptions so the title has to have some indication if we don't want people dumping everything atheist related in there (which would kill large parts of the rest of the forum).
That works for me as it does what it says on the tin!

OK, the new forum was created and I moved a lot of related posts into it to further help people understand what type of topics should go there.

I feel rotten now, I'd have done the moving! But a bloody good job Whitney.

I just noticed the new sub-forum!  Awesome <3

I think it should help with a little focus.

Did you know HAF has a Facebook page too? http://www.facebook.com/HappyAtheist

Yes, I joined the same day I joined the main forum. *happy cackle*

I wanted to ask how many of our members were actually on it?

I have no idea how many are mutual members and I'm not sure there would be anyway of finding out either.

I don't post in the fb one anyway, I mainly lurk like a girl in the bushes.
