    Interest Check

    I've got a ton of things in my queue, but splitting this forum into a seperate site is still one of them. However, if there isn't enough interest, I won't waste the time needed to get it done.

    The new spin-off Politics/Society/Culture War/etc site would essentially be much like Bullshido, but focusing completely on current events, news, and social issues. The cool thing is that there's such a diverse group of people here already, that such a site would have a wide array of opinions.

    The unique thing about how I want to set it up, is that members that meet a certain number of criteria (# of posts, time registered, possibly reputation) will be allowed to co-blog the front page with their news story finds, comments, rants, etc. As far as I know, it'll be the first "blog" operated by a group of people who don't agree with each other.

    So this is a poll to gauge interest in the project.

    I'd go there exclusively to discuss those topics

    I feel the 'critical' time was when y'all wanted to debate the American election.

      Yeah. I had been working on it back then too, but had a few things come up which prevented it. We've got another election coming up though.

        Due to the fact that much of my day is already spent arguing with people, I would probably not spend much time there. However, I think it's an interesting idea, and my guess is that it would probably be very succesful.

          When Wolfy got the World bank and Bolton headed for the UN, I figured that the anti-christs had won and stopped bothering posting for the most part over here.

            I no longer participate in political rants here, anyway. I don't know that I would go over there.

              That's kind of the point though, we want to seperate the heated politics/society/culture stuff onto its own site so it doesn't spill over into the MA discussions.

                  I would love to see the site. A lot of the current events type sites out there suck. They not only suck in content, they don't look good and are not well put together.
                  The type of site I think you are talking about, but with a Bullshido type layout and features would be cool.

                    Since a good %75-%85 of my posts here are in the Current Events forum anyhow, I'd likely be there more than here.

                      I don't think I'd go. It's just too much of a hassle. =/

                      Yes, I am that lazy.

                        I like the way it is now, Bullshido is the Walmart of forums, I can pretty much discuss whatever I want here instead of hanging out on topic specific forums.

                          Sorry American politics don't interest me. And thats what the majority of the posts are about so I wouldn't even visit the site.

                            Is this true, Phrost? Do you exploit little kids in 3rd world countries?

                              Don't talk about the Canadian staff members that way.
