What sort of stuff would be discussed in the general forum? I'd be worried that it would turn into a free for all, which I've never been interested in having here. If enough people want it and think they can behave, then I'd consider it.

What about a water shed general discussion forum that younger member can post in with the rule that content not be adult content? Alot of young enviros and AR/AWs out their.

Might need thinking through but might clean the rest up if youngens are floating around ;)

We tried this a long time ago and I have to say the results were scary, at best. A bunch of older, very twisted individuals joined and claimed they were young. It was just creepy.

I can't keep control of a bunch of supposed adults from acting like children, I can't imagine actually trying to provide a safe environment for young folks.

I remember that section and some of the problems ... given the current level of posting I doubt if it would be possible to police a forum like that at this time.

You actually had one on the old board Josh. The town hall concept which (I believe the guy's name was John Chase set up) . I found it a bit mundane myself but folks did pull up and have a coffee as they used to say or a cooler.

Why, I always behave. I'm an angel. Just look at my avatar.

I just thought it would be cool. If you do not think so it is alright.
