This is a discussion on Political Topics/Alternate Forum?

I would also certainly be interested in an invite to the mentioned politics board tho i doubt i would be a contributing member so really not much point for the benefit of the board other than padding member numbers . I would read a lot , say little and bitterly cling to my opinions LOL .
Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

I think we should look into starting a blog on blogger.com. It can be for our DC members that are interested, and maybe someone could volunteer to moderate.

C9H13NO3, thanks for the link. If the admin is up for a little growth, it looks like it may be exactly what I was looking for.
I am the Admin in question for the Debate Forum. Anyone who is interested in stopping by, or wants to ask me some questions first, just ask.
I think Kerb and Sixto are on the right track. We need someplace low-key by invite only. One of the reasons that I like this board so much is that a person with one post can be heard on equal footing with someone who has 5,000+ posts. It really is a case of 'Intelligent until proven otherwise.' I think a hidden forum on here (despite it being against policy and Bumper's personal blood pressure) would only lead to post poadding.
But I digress. There are quite a few topics I would like to hear outside opinion on from you all but I know it will never happen here so I have generally kept it out of my posts. Reading between the lines with some of my posts may have hinted at it before.
Ashrak, PM inbound.
The way I have it set up, one of the two Admins will validate each member. Reason being most of us were members on a certain "No Politics" forum, and we didn't want certain people getting wind of my little project and and following us.
To streamline this process here is the public link:
Any questions feel free to ask. Like I said, the Validation process will take a few minutes but it isn't that big a hurdle.
I have to go AFK, so anyone else who is interested by all means stop in for quick (or not so quick) hello. Hope to see you there!
Here's the link to the debate forum if any of you are interested. If you have problems logging in or accessing anything, PM me the name you registered under and I'll let the admin know.
Nevermind...guess ashrak is now a member here...lol
All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
Ashrak, thanks for making your forum available to us.
For those that expressed interest, it is a new forum(been around about 10 days) with a current member base in the 30's with several of those from DC.
So far, it looks like this is exactly what I/we were looking for. As far as the 'validation process', its the same as a lot of other forums, you don't become a member instantly, but have to check your e-mail after a few minutes for the link.
Hope to see you guys over there.
Thanks to C9 for pointing us in the right direction.
My preference would be to have a political forum on DC. I don't have the time to read all of the forums that I.m on now, and basically stick to this one. I respect Bumper's decision not to allow political threads in DC. and I've frequently had to hold myself back from making my comments more political. Perhaps, if he were to find some people who would be willing to act as moderators, he would consider adding one, even if only a temporary board, to get past the elections, Of course, it would be a big job even with a temporary job, and i know that I am too busy to take something like that on. So, it most likely will never occur, just a wish.
I would love to participate in the auxiliary forum but, unfortunately, I was unable to get through the registration form because the site does not support my web browser.
I have no idea if that would be the only limitation my browser would have. It sometimes has a problem with forms.
Have fun, guys! I know I would have stirred the pot a bit.
