    Why did the "powers that be" move the News and Politics forum category (THE SECOND MOST POPULAR FORMUM CATEGORY) way down to the bottom of the list ?

    Please move it up to #2.

    Actually it is the third most popular based on the number of posts. All Things Gay is #1 and Gay News & Events is #2. While it may have the third most posts, that is probably because of how frequently some of the same people are posting. It is certainly filled with more petty bickering, name-calling, and hate than the other forums, so maybe that explains the move.

    I think they wanted to separate "Gay News" from "News & Politics"

    Possibly. The "News & Politics" category was my suggestion to Chris, along with the brief description ("Discuss general news & politics") to create a separate category that's wasn't "Gay News & Events." He accepted my suggestion verbatim, along with another new category for "Outdoor Life" which hasn't been as popular.

    Several others made the identical suggestion.

    Good to know...that really changes everything. icon_rolleyes.gif

    Except, Chris told me he had accepted my suggestions, and pasted my proposed forum descriptions verbatim as I submitted them. To include "Outdoor LIfe," or did "others" suggest that one, too? They happened at the same time.

    Oh, and I think I may have discussed it with meninlove as I was doing it, I can't recall. Too bad socialfitness didn't know that, before he took a swing at me. icon_razz.gif
