posticon FEWER CATEGORIES?


The multiple, stupidly-named categories of this forum are driving me crazy.

I can never find anything and it's onerous to figure out what post to place in what category. Also, the categories are somewhat redundant.

Can't we cut these down to 2 or 3?

Re: FEWER CATEGORIES?


We absolutely can do that. For example, we could combine Technophilia and Tomorrowland into one category. Would you like to propose a motion?

I so propose.

It would start a consolidation, and at the least would do some minimal "paring."

Before it can be made into a proper motion, we will need to settle on a name for the new subforum. Should it be "Technophilia", "Tomorrowland", or something else?

Enlightenment
present and future science and technology

OK, I'll get it started:

Motion: That the Technophilia subforum and the Tomorrowland subforum be combined into a single subforum. Topics in the Tomorrowland subforum will be moved to the Technophilia subforum, and that subforum will be renamed:

Enlightenment
present and future science and technology


It needs a second before the voting clock starts. If it receives a second, I will put a notice in our banner to alert everyone that an important vote has commenced.

I vote no. Let's consider this structure, Spike:

NewsFlash! [Newsy stuff and politics]

MindX [Main forum]

Lobby [For introductions]

Foundation & Bureaucracy [Administrative stuff]

Netherworld [Sex and other off-color topics]

Labels are up for discussion, of course.

Red, you can't vote no. There is not even a second yet. Arguably, there is not a motion, since I don't really know if Doc likes the name I chose.

The change that has been proposed would actually be the first step in the total change you want to make. There is no reason why we cannot do this by combining two topics at a time. Also, it will be much easier to get a consensus if we make gradual changes.

The next change we can make is to move the Foundation topics into the Bureau subforum. There is no hurry.

I think that most of the active moderators would support the consolidation I suggest.

Motion: Consolidate EV categories as follows:

NewsFlash! [Newsy stuff and politics]

MindX [Main forum]

Lobby [For introductions]

Foundation & Bureaucracy [Administrative stuff]

Netherworld [Sex and other off-color topics]

Labels are up for discussion, of course. Note this would be relatively straight forward to do. Can I get a second?

Re: FEWER CATEGORIES?


Very well then. Allow me to formalize this a bit.

Motion: that the existing 10 subforums be combined into 5 subforums. The new subforums will be called:

NewsFlash!
newsy stuff and politics

MindX
main forum

Lobby
for introductions

Foundation & Bureaucracy
administrative stuff

Netherworld
sex and other off-color topics

The previously created Steemit subforum will not be regenerated and will cease to exist.

The 24 Hour News Cycle subforum will be renamed NewsFlash!

The Tomorrowland and Shambhala topics will be moved into the Technophilia subforum and that subforum will be renamed MindX

The Foundation topics will be moved into the Bureau subforum and that subforum will be renamed Foundation & Bureaucracy.

The Alternate World Views topics will be moved into the Netherworld subforum.

The 5 subforums will be reordered as shown.


We have an unambiguous motion. Is there a second.
