Is it worth adding a category for things which aren’t really related to the Party or politics, but which Pirates might still wish to discuss amongst themselves? I mean sure, there’s the General category, but there might be some value in keeping the truly “off-topic” things out of that.
Basically the equivalent of #ppausocial for this site.
There is an off-topic section called ‘lounge’ once you’ve been around and contributed enough.
It stops the forum degenerating into off-topic only, and we don’t want people just discovering the party to be barraged with off-topic stuff as soon as they hit the discussion homepage.
I’ve changed the rules for lounge so it appears if you have trust level 2, which doesn’t take long to acquire. (Use the forum for about a week.)
Ah, I’m sure I’ll use it more after a few other things are dealt with. Also now that I have a nice dark them for it (though it could be streamlined a bit).
