    I'm thinking we should, as it's effectively a forum cricket game. Even if we have to put "drafts" in the title, I think they'd fit better in this forum than CC.

    Answering your own questions, PEWS?


    I agree we can probably have drafts in there as a cricket game but as others pointed out, being on CC helps them get more noticed.

    CC is pretty empty when tests aren't on anyway, and when they are going on, there aren't many people participating in drafts. It works as it is.

    I just don't see Off Topic moving quickly enough these days to worry about splitting it up. Leave it as is, I reckon.

    As pointed out earlier, I feel that there could be so much more discussion in the area of news/politics/global affairs if they were to have their own sub-forum instead of being contained within single nation-based threads. A sort of 'build it and they will come' approach to putting them in their own sub-forum

    Perhaps,but I'm leaning more towards what zorax is saying, and as others have pointed out the same was said about the General Sports Forum at the time.

    Also if it doesn't work, it's quite easy to move it back to the way it was before.

    If this is what we've come to on CW - where zorax is a voice of reason - I wonder what hope this place has.

    Anyone got any concerns if Cricket Web Forum Announcements is merged with Site Discussion?

    I would merge the Downtime Forum with the Announcements Forum as a sub Forum within Site Discussion. Zorax approval not withstanding of course.

    New subbie called poster discussion. You get to voice your opinion on anyones posting, discuss why they need an atmosphere ban etc. No infractions and no swear filter.

    New/Politics separate sub forum is a great idea.

    Yeah, fully behind a separate News/Politics subforum. Given that News/Pol has 3-4 megathreads already, I think things would benefit from being split out into topics in a separate sub.

    I don't think there's need to split off Entertainment; if News/Pol goes off on its own, there's more 'space' in OT for Entertainment to expand out to more niche threads.

    The amount of times someone drops into AmPol to post something that gets lost between Ikki and Harsh having the same back-and-forth essay-length discussion on who does and does not know **** about economics. And I think it adds a coherence to discussion, rather than multiple strands of silo'd off conversation going on in the same massive thread.

    Plus from a moderation POV, much easier to lock any inappropriate topics if they're separated out into threads than it is to stop them in a mega-thread.

    Admittedly we'll never get a perfect distinction between subforums, but I think it's worth a crack at least.

    Are you saying you will consider an entertainment subforum if two more forummers go at it Iki-Harsh style there?
