New Forum: Science Fiction Media!

  1. Aug 21, 2012 #1
    We are announcing that mid next week "Skepticism & Debunking" will be removed. All threads will be placed in GD. The "Product Claims" forum will be spared and temporarily placed in GD as well. Over the past year we noticed many threads being locked due to guideline violations. So much so that it made the forum unproductive.

    In it's place we are adding a "Science Fiction Media" forum. It will house all the discussions about Sci-Fi books, movies, tv shows, comics... and a sub forum for writers!

    Look for it next week!

    Science fiction. Nice. I lose though. My guess was that the next new forum would be Greatest Physicist Polls forum.

    I thought that was the "official" name for the general forum...

    PF has stipulated that there are legitimate mysteries, like UFOs. Where would these now be discussed?

    Respectfully submitted,

    Likely not for long ;)

    I also want to add that all threads in S&D will be locked

    I had no idea the Forum got that many hits from sci-fi writers. Pretty cool!

    Funny thing but the first time I glanced at the title of the thread I thought you had inaugurated a science fiction medal...

    Neither did I actually! It was a good suggestion by micromass!

    Nice one. Now the site is even more dull and cosy.

    I don't think you mean that. Or I hope not.

    Is there any rationale why scifi is a subforum of the lounge, whereas PW&A, photo stuff and games, etc, etc are subforums of General Discussion?
