    If for no other reason than to stop polluting all the other discussion areas.

    Isn't that what the water cooler is for?

    We could have all the "My Kung fu is stronger than your Kung fu" discussions in there.

    So I guess my vote would be "no" but not because I like it.

    might as well just call it the "men only, flame war" section. It would be great to pass the time, but i doubt it would happen since this is a fencing forum

    but what if fencing were a martial art... lol

    You can't just keep creating more sub-forums. Martial arts talk should probably go to the Water Cooler.

    Water cooler. Or better yet, use a martial arts forum.

    I agree WC for Martial Arts chat.

    If we are agreed then I will start moving any martial arts threads to there.

    problem is most threads involving martial arts also directly involve fencing, which is why they end up here

    The problem is with things like the last thread, the OP actually brought up a good topic that had a place in the fencing discussion forum. Unfortunately like all threads with the smallest mentiono of martial arts, it all goes the same way...

    Uuh...your poll options are contradictive.

    How about:

    Yes -- Create a Martial Arts subforum.

    or

    No -- Do not create a Martial Arts subforum.


    So simple, yet so clear.

    But even the sub-fora are part of the overarching fencing forum. It all, even if indirectly, involves fencing.

    I voted yes, but in all honesty, I'm alright either way. I do think that its a good idea, which is why I voted yes.

    No they are not. Should be read as:

    Yes, create a new forum. I dont like the noise pollution,

    or...

    No, dont create a new forum. I like the noise pollution.

    "It" is the noise pollution.

    Please do not create a martial arts section....there are, um, HOW many boards out there for marital arts already?

    The few threads that get out of control can get booted to the water cooler.

    Perhaps we should create a new container, instead of the Water Cooler, let's just have a section called Toilet or Trash Can? Then we could flush it, or take it out and leave it at the virtual curb from time to time and everyone could start anew:rolleyes:...

    I agree with just about everyone here--- This is a fencing messageboard. If you want to have your own little world that consists of people yelling at each other to the point of closing threads on a regular basis.......... Create your own world.

    Oooooh! Such fun! When enough people vote to get rid of the current batch of threads, WHOOSH! they'd just disappear!

    Personally, I'd love a way to mark threads or fora to just never show up when I hit the "New Posts" button, but it's easy enough to just simply not read the thread.
