election forum future

Now that the election is over, I assume that the election forum will be closed in a few days, just like the war forum.

I know this has been discussed ad naseum, but i think it is worth metioning again.... can the election forum be changed to the "political" forum? IMO the other forum is a nicer place when politics have their own place.

I see that even betting/gambling has their own subforum now.

Close it so we can take our partisan bickering back to Other!

Please do! I can't imagine what Other would look like today. At least keep the subforum until it slows down to Book Talk level.

I don't know where you draw the line of "politics" but I have enjoyed having that forum and wouldn't mind seeing something like it remain now that the <s>erection</s> election is over.

I'd suggest waiting to see where the discussion turns now that the election is over. My guess is that it will become The War Room. Before the campaigns got going that was the bulk of the political threads.

THANK YOU!! Otter's never been better.

Well, it has, but it's a lot nicer than when people tossed up politics in otter.

Man, I can't think of a better name for it on a DVD site! "Gentlemen, you can't fight in here! This is the war room!"

Thats so cool. It was insanely awesome going to the otter on Nov. 2 and not seeing anything having to do with the politics.

RFD: keeping a politics forum separate from other

Since the split and moving Election Talk to this forum, the OtterFarm has returned to what it was intended, random synaptic firing and lusting after WhoGirl's feet.

I'm proposing renaming the Election 2004 forum to Political Talk and keeping all political discussion in this forum.

Discussion?

I think Geoff made it clear a while back.
NO is the answer. But with four more years of Bush, who knows?

I don't think so. Leave this open at least a month, and maybe through the inaguration, but then merge them again.

Just wait until things slow down a little, then merge back into other. May take a while. Might never happen.

Seems like a good idea to keep it as a politics forum. From the little I've skimmed the election forum, it seems pretty civil, and there always seems (from past threads and polls on the topic) to be more members who prefer having politics removed from other than those that oppose it.

Just wanted to cast my vote for the Politics Forum. It has been nice having it seperate from Other. When I feel like looking at partisan crap I go into the subforum, when I want to read interesting and funny things I stay in Other.

Originally, I was pretty much against the Politcal sub-forum, but it makes it easier to sort through all the political threads when you have them all in one area. Plus all the silly otters who don't like politics can be happy splashing and playing in a cleaner pool now. I say yes to the Political Forum!

Sadly, this isn't a Democracy it's a Geoff-ocracy, so I'll just say pretty please Geoff and be on my way.
