Coming Soon: Changes to "Real World"
« on: April 11, 2009, 11:56:19 AM »
Hey gang,

This is a "heads up" that we will soon be creating a couple sub-boards inside the REAL WORLD section:

1) Fun and Games
2) The Lounge

All the game/contest threads we can find will be moved down to the Fun & Games sub-board, and all of the chit-chat/appreciation/etc. threads we can find will be moved down to the Lounge. And then we'll ask you to please start any new threads like those in the correct sub-board, not directly in Real World itself.

The idea behind this is to just keep things as readable and user-friendly as possible. It can be a hassle for people not interested in the games, for example, to have to scroll through a couple dozen threads to find interesting discussions.

Any questions, let us know. We'll probably do this sometime next week.

Boom Cha!

That's a great idea. The Real World is scary sometimes!

Excellent idea -- and weirdly timely, as I was just thinking of suggesting it myself this morning!

Just wondering, what qualifies as a lounge?  Like a place to hang out mostly?

Probably, anything that's not a game is going to be in the Lounge.

They'll stay in the Real World section. The Lounge and Fun and Games will be sub-boards of the Real World. :)
