Please, yes.

We need a Politics&Religion forum here something desperate.

I've actually thought about making this topic myself many many times but figured it was a fruitless endeavor and decided not to.

Political threads tend to start as or de-evolve into dumpster fires in recent months. Putting them all in one place could end up rather terrifying.




Yes but then at least the dumpster fire won't be raging right outside the front door.

Yes, that way if I feel like joining into political conversations I could and when I'm burnt out/sick of it for the day I can go back to avoiding it entirely

Nope CR only gets politically charged once every four years, and CR is a anime/manga site that doesn't even have a forum for Light Novels.

Yes. I am tired of seeing political talk in the General Discussion board, and then getting into it with other people over political stuff. I think there should be a completely different board so that those who don't want to talk about political things at the moment don't have to see every other board be about political stuff.

Would that be more or less tasteless than the political threads?

How about a Religious Board where all the different religions can chat? That would be a lot of fun.

I have no strong feelings either way, and generally just talk about whatever everyone else is. That just happens to tend to be politics around here since Extended Discussion died. Do whatever and I'll go with the flow. I'm easy.

Due the new political awareness that most 16-25 year-olds harbor, it's only natural that it would begin to develop here as well. Many politically fueled threads are made everyday, not just about candidates or debates, but also about social events, and their political implications. I believe, in light of this, a new board would be an appropriate addition to this community.

While GD is a very inclusive, and a fairly light-hearted board, I feel that politics ill suits it. With any political or social event, there are numerous facts to examine, rumors to fact-check, and beliefs to be weighted and examined. The debates tend to, at times, get heated. This makes subjects go on for an alarming number of posts.

I also feel that these discussions could be enriched somewhat if they had their own board. Many people who post primarily on GD are here to joke around, share content, and socialize. Many people here are somewhat less likely to be interested in long draw-out political debates, due to not being as aware(or even interested) in current world events. If there were a "Political Board" users would know exactly what they were getting into before they even posted.

Here is the current top threads on GD with blue dots showing which threads could easily be under a new political board.



GD, feel free to let the folks at CR know what you think. Hell, I'd like to know at least.


Like for political Anime? This is an Anime site.
