Conservatory (6 Viewing) Non e-book related discussions on any subject

The Conservatory was meant to be a place where we could post topics that did not fit in any of the other forums (as long as they we not silly). That was to INCLUDE eBook discussions. But whoever when the Conservatory was created, it was created such that eBook discussions are not permitted. Can this mistake/oversight please be fixed?

I think the reason for this is that each person had their own idea of what was appropriate... From those that felt no humour or witty remarks were appropriate, to those that felt only if they were included in the context of the conversation, to those that felt it was ok as long as the threads remained on topic with only an occasional joke or remark but didn't cascade off, etc... I don't think I saw one person that had the same precise list of inclusions/exclusions for the proposed forum... The majority seemed to specifically want The Lounge without 'descending' into silliness. That means no eBook specific discussions, at least by definition.

I personally believe the forum could use a Generic Book discussion section... While MR's focus is certainly eBooks and mobile devices that support them, it would stand to reason that people may want to discuss a book that isn't currently available, or that they were not able to obtain via an eBook format... I can't count how many times people have been politely put in their place for daring to mention or discuss a title only available as pbooks... I just finished reading Lolita, is it so off topic to discuss that with my fellow MR'ers? But I just figure, what the hell, I'll post it in threads with my friends, if they want to discuss it with me, great! Regardless of prescribed guidelines, or undeclared 'rules'....

But then it is the "Ebook General" section that need a new forum. I have always read "News and Commentary" as covering nearly all things about Ebooks in general. But maybe that is not the intention.

I take News and Commentary as a place to post news and then comment on it.
