At risk of sounding elitist, I dislike the disbanding of Extended Discussion. The separate environment helped foster more serious discussions than can take place on a simple general discussion board. Yes the ED board moved slower than GD but that's to be expected given the very different natures of the discussions being had on each.

Thanks for the feedback.

For right now feel free to add something like "[Serious]" to your thread title if you're concerned too many folks are likely to take it in a frivolous direction, and also make it clear in your opening post that you are looking for serious discussion. If, in spite of that, there are folks who try to disrupt the discussion please do use the "Report to Moderator" link to notify us, so we can edit or remove those posts as being off-topic.

The problem I see with merging extended discussion with general discussion is all the threads that are slower updated are now getting pushed further and further back thanks to the pace of the 'normal' threads. To find those serious threads, the old ones I kept an eye on, I may have to go pages back and I much preferred having it separate because I didn't much like browsing through general discussion threads. There's one I easily remember on page one, three on page two, and the rest are page three or at some point after. I just checked.

Even putting serious in the titles isn't going to help much since we'll still have to spend browsing through pages of threads looking for a serious one. There will just be an easier way to spot "oh a serious thread, good". That doesn't eliminate the trouble of browsing forum pages. And on top of that, none of those previously in extended discussion have that tag, which means for right now, it's even more difficult.

True, the one I was keeping an eye on in Extended Discussions, I finally found on page 30 something in General Discussions. Maybe there can be some kind of symbol in front of them to signify they are from the old Extended Discussion section and for the new serious topics people create. An example is in Forum Games, there is a Topic called Tug of War and it has a Knight(horse) symbol in its header.

Hi! The plan is to actually rename those sections*--so the "Entertainment" section will be called "Discussion" -- because that's where discussion (for some flexible definition of "discussion") will take place, whether it's about different entertainment media or stuff in general.

"Lifestyles" will be renamed "Crunchy Connections" This is a largely whole new section devoted to more personal, less discussion or topic oriented threads and posts. That's why we moved Forum Games there! We felt it was a good fit as a fun place to hang out alongside the new "Chit Chat" and "Advice/Info/Recommendations" forums.


*(There was an unexpected glitch in getting these sections renamed. Oops! The engineers are working on it.)

Any idea when the front page will get fixed and start showing forum topics again? I mean, I'm guessing it's gonna be another day or two but I'm just curious at this point

I don't like the fact that the extended discussions was merged with general discussions...now serious topics will be used as a joke (like almost everything in the general discussion) or like others said, the topics will be pushed further back which it's quite a hassle.

Thanks for the feedback. The first issue shouldn't be too much of a problem if people make it clear the subject was opened for serious discussion and if they report frivolous posts which derail the discussion. We're hoping that discussions such as those that were previously in "Extended" will get more activity as a result of being in the General Discussion forum, and that may actually keep them in view longer.
