New forum section that's not the lounge

We seriously need a forum section for posts that do not exactly fit anyplace else and the lounge is not it. The lounge has been taken over by too much sillyness to make people try to wade through it to find posts that are not silly. We need to seperate the silly from the not silly. Some people may not want to wade through the silly and the not silly posts will just get lost. So can we have a forum section that's not the lounge for posts that are not meant to be silly? Either that or we create a new forum section just for the silly and move all the posts there and then those that do not want them can easily ignore it.

Seeing as the particular section the above has been posted in is "News and Commentary", stated as particularly aimed at posts relating to the "Latest on e-books, e-paper, DRM and related technologies", and there's a section of the forums called "FeedbacK" particularly created for "Comments, questions and suggestions for MobileRead", perhaps this thread should be moved there, so that people do not have to wade through the News and Commentary posts to find this Feedback suggestion, and so that people reading News and Commentary don't have to skip Feedback posts to find News and Commentary items?

Cheers,
Marc

...and so perfectly suited to the Feedback section, which asks for "Comments, questions and suggestions for MobileRead". (bolded emphasis mine)

I did think of that actually after the post was made. But seeing as I cannot move it, I just let it go.

Fair enough. Chances are a mod' will be along forthwith, and will move it if they deem it necessary.

Perhaps we need a "washroom" ....

Well, we do need something because the Lounge has become something other then what it was meant to be. How about a PlayRoom where we can move all the silly from the lounge. That way if anyone wants to ignore it all, it's easy.

Yeah but now it is all siliness and I don't like to filter through it to find some meaningful threads.
It would be nice if siliness was separated into forum of its own called Siliness or

Yes, I think having a sub-forum in the lounge for sillness threads is a good idea.

That said the description for the lounge if for "NON ebook related discussions". the news thread is for discussion on news topics. So, there really isn't any type of general discussion topics.

Well, if you look through the lounge you will see probably half or at least 1/3 of the topics are not silly?

which goes to show that silly and serious discussions can harmoniously co-exist in the lounge, which is after all why it is there.
