Since it's been awhile since I made the last poll, I want to see how the newer members of the forum feel about the idea of creating a sports forum. I don't think ID is a very accepting place for sports discussion, just as it wouldn't be an accepting place for music discussion. Which is why there's a music forum. And I think it will not only provide plenty of discussion, but it will also bring new forumers here. And I'm sure it will at least get more action than The Gallery.

And if it's voted down again, I won't bring the issue up again.

what would be the point? We'd all just make fun of synchronized swimming.
As I often like to put it, honor means nothing to The Disturbed Llama Team. Principles mean nothing to them. All they cares about is how to change the course of history. It will not be easy to argue about their inclinations. Nevertheless, we must attempt to do exactly that, for the overriding reason that it has never satisfactorily proved its assertion that obscurity, evasiveness, incomprehensibility, indirectness, and ambiguity are marks of depth and brilliance.

I'd actually make some good use of a Sports Forum, but since I'm relatively new, I don't want to impose.

I think it would just be another forum with dead threads with like 3-6 posts in them. Sports threads would do better in ID because there aren't that many.

Maybe one of the forums could create a sticky thread for sports-related discussion.

By your logic, we should just get rid of The Gallery, Theater of Sound and Geek's Corner because they don't get that much traffic.

exactly...

all those other forums are just annoying, they get like one reply every week...the threads would get more traffic if they were at ID and the discussion would be better...

Alright, Drahnier. You go ahead and tell Stew, Ice, Boutitben, Woadraider, Emtilt and Danielle that you think their forums suck and they shouldn't be moderators anymore because their forums don't get enough traffic for you.

alright...

what is your point?
i dont care how many moderators those forums have, theyre still fucking useless

i guess we could make forums for stamp collecting, trainspotting, coin-collecting and discussing the foreign policies of nicaragua so everyone could be a moderator somewhere...but it doesnt seem like a good idea

My point was that your reason to not have a sports forum is stupid.

When people have a forum to discuss a certain topic, they feel more motivated to discuss that topic. Notice there were very few music, computer and art-related threads before the forums were made. Then those forums filled up quite fast. It would also bring more people here.

Somehow I don't think stamp collecting, coin collecting, trainspotting, and the foreign policies of Nicaragua are as quite as popular as sports. Maybe if, say, coin collecting was a televised event in several countries, than maybe we would have a reason to make a forum for it.

well, thats because people are fucking stupid...
why wouldnt they make those threads in ID instead of TOS?

if there is no music forum and you feel like making a thread about music, you make it in ID...

also, the music thread tag is useless when we have a music forum...
think of the tag!

I agree with Drah on this. I see no point in having more pointless forums that dont get any traffic. I hardly even venture into Seriouse Discussions, much less the other three subforums.

If you would like, I will private message the mods of those forums and tell them that I think thier forums are pointless and should be done away with.

I like to watch, participate, and follow sports at a national and local level. Personally, I like to talk about sports. They are a great passtime, whether you're watching or engaging. Of course, given the demographics, it wouldn't really be useful. When I've tried to make a sports-related thread in the past, the results were less than respectable. Although you do bring a valid point in that it has the possibility to attract new members, we have to consider the risks we run. The possibility of attracting 12-year old ESPN gurus is sort of demuring.

Your call, FA.

Risks? What risks? The forum might not do so good? That's a big risk.

We risk attracting 12 year olds every time someone says "sex" or "breasts" or anything else that would get a Google hit. So let's not let people say those words, okay?

In the end, the good outweighs the bad.

I like that idea. I personally like talkig sports. It dosn't have to be about scores or that it could be ranting about how much the cow boys suck

Too many sticky threads at one time tend to get annoying.

*This is kind of out there, but maybe there should be some kind of "Specialty Forum" with threads designated for sports, music, writing, computers/games, and other related discussions. Maybe it would have separate threads for Sports:Football, :Soccer, :Basketball, mm i wanna suck ur cock lolthers... and even high school/college. The more popular the topic is, the more threads it would have. I think that could be more popular than all the separate forums. The forum would be set up to where you can't make new threads, but there would be a thread set aside for suggesting new topics, and the moderators would decide if it warrants a new specialty thread. Just a suggestion... Don't flip out, FA. LOL IM SUCH A FAG!!

Melanie - I have no idea what that means.

A subforum with individual threads for each topic?
Where can I turn for comfort? Where do the cold days end?
Where has the sunshine gone? Where do our two hearts blend?
Where has love gone and hidden? Where must I go to find?
The more I shun romance, the more love is defined.

Yeah, basically. After thinking about it, it's kind of unrealistic this far into INTL's lifetime. Too many threads in those forums to deal with their "replacement." They could all be shoved into the depths of ID, though. Whatever, just an idea.
