Hey Greg, you need to fix the link!
Thank you for the new forum!!!!
Yes, thank you. It should be interesting to see what comes up on it.
I went ahead and moved some recent GD threads, and a classic Social Sciences thread, into the new forum to help populate it a bit. If anyone has any suggestions for old threads that should be moved into the new History & Humanities forum, feel free to PM or email me.
edit: If you do have suggestions, please include a link to the relevant thread.
move the ww2 thread from the political forum to it! Perfect candidate.
Thank you, Greg.
Nowe we can discuss moonbear's, Evo's, Tsu's, SOS's, and MIH's births, without posting in the wrong forum!
Maybe I'm wrong: history is also before the birth of christ?
You'd better run and hide. :grumpy:
:rofl: yomamma, we can also discuss the history of men's desire for power!
Well this thread is almost about history! :uhh:
how about a 3rd delivery of nirvana chocolates?
So is the other thread going to stay in the staff forum? I just still have a few questions - should I post them here?
Thanks Greg! And thanks to Hypnagogue for populating it a bit so it gets some interest.
Well I think the thread is better to stay there provided that we would be allowed to go to the staff forum and continue our discussion!
Okay, my questions were...
Can we still add to the subtitle of Social Sciences? Something like:
Anthropology, sociology, psychology, economics, linguistics, semiotics, archaeology, geography...
(maybe lose semiotics - I doubt many people recognize the name.)
Could the other suggestions (the 3 forum section, mind/brain forum, etc.) still be considered again in the future, or were they shot dead? Maybe if the new forum is successful... ??
Sounds fair to me.
I think we could do without semiotics and geography (in the interest of keeping the forum subtitle at a manageable length), but I think it's a no-brainer to add linguistics and archaeology to the list. The forum subtitles do seem to play an important role in guiding members' decisions about what to post where, and linguistics and (to a lesser extent) archaeology are two broad subjects that clearly should be classified under Social Sciences. Since this seems like such a no-brainer, I do anticipate something getting done here, but we have to wait for an explicit decision from the admin.
We are in the process of discussing these suggestions, though it's unclear to me how long it will take to come to a concensus decision one way or another.
