as it's rather simplistic (and not in a good way) to keep all Middle East Conflict discussions in one thread.. given that there is new information arising on a weekly basis... here's a good idea, for once
how about a middle east forum? that way it's all contained in one area, but different aspects can be discussed in different ways, rather than the idiotic idea of putting it all into one thread that rambles on forever and good points are instantly lost among the in-fighting
I know I'll be avoiding the Middle East Conflict Thread, but there are often interesting developments that I'd like to share
Same thing here - I dont have the time to follow such an active and diverse topic. It needs to have either it's own forum or subforum (not sure if that's possible.)
I agree with you JoeFriday. Setting one thread for the whole issues of the M.E was like discouraging many members from posting, which is basically against the whole purpose of this site. I hope that moderators will remove this restricton on posting soon. Allocating a section or forum for the M.E. is a good suggestion too.
This thread is not a discussion of world news, but a suggestion of something for the admins to consider implementing in the Forum. Thus, I have moved it to its proper place.
ok, you're right that it should have been in the Suggestion forum.. however, that forum sees very little traffic (and I personally didn't even realize it existed when I made the suggestion)
thanks for moving my suggestion, and I hope it is strongly considered
Agreed. I've wanted to say something for a while, but haven't. I never thought about a ME forum, that's a great idea.
Perhaps a forum for war in general, not just limited to ME?
Well, IMO, there are too many forums already.
But maybe allowing another thread for M.E. is not a bad idea. However, it'll have to be discussed with the other staff.
good idea, keeps things clean
I think subforum = good, megathread = bad. The paged form is inherently bad for navigation and searching, and doesn't properly take into account the idea of discussion topics at all. Also, it's an important conflict with many aspects and points of view so I think a subforum is entirely justified.
Well at least remove the restriction of posting only in one thread. The number of posts was abnormally higher during the war in Lebanon. It's almost back to normal now!
Anybody hears what we're saying here?
As long as they're about different aspects of the conflict, and not just "ZOMG HOW SOLVE?!?!?111111oneone" then I don't see the problem with having more than one thread about it. Do you?
