I know the concept of more than one forum is pretty complex. A new poster should be able to understand the concept in two minutes. Since you are posting here since 2003, it will take only two minutes.

This is the general stuff forum for things that don't fit in one of the other forum categories, elsewhere also known as the off topic forum. But there are more forums.

It's easier to understand when you go to
http://www.counterglow.com/forum/index.php
and check the forum descriptions.

If you want to post a specific topic, just check this list. Is it about

games? -> "Games" forum
music? -> "Music" forum
films (movies) -> "Film, Fiction and Writing " forum
books -> "Film, Fiction and Writing "
nerd stuff? "Technoglow" forum
sports? -> "CounterAttack" forum
this site? -> "Feature Requests and Site Discussion" forum
something else -> this forum

If you check that list carefully, it's actually pretty easy.

Some people will help you and remind you. If you post a music thread in the games forum, they'll say "-> music forum!". This means: You'd better post a thread like this in the music forum, course nobody will reply to here.

That's it in a nutshell.

Dude, I got that KKKoncept. I just think it would be better for discussion to mix everything. Like ordering breakfast and having steak and eggs and getting it rare and using steak sauce, and the eggs being sunny side up and then also having grits on the plate and all the various juices running together to form an elixer which is mopped up with crisp rye toast. (butter is not needed at that point.)

Plus, you are all over my ass...

P.s. could you resurrect some of my alternate logins? I've lost the passwords. GP, HelpTCO. Maybe some others, but those are the ones I remember.

Well, it's rather like eating, swimming, having a dump, dancing and handling explosives in the same room at the same time.

They should make that the new Modern Pentathlon for the Beijing Olympics.

The multiple forum is actually a brilliant idea. As you can see from the forum descriptions, the sports threads were once here. That was kinda annoying

(a) for posters interested in sports, because the the threads dropped to page 2 very fast and nobody posted (it's rather unusual that a thread comes up from page 2 ff again)

(b) for the posters NOT interested in sports, because they had all the boring sports crap in here and so they spammed some of the threads like any others

(c) for posters interested in sports again, because their threads got spammed by the (b) people

So, as you found out yourself here
http://www.counterglow.com/forum/showthread.php?s=&threadid=38862
It's a pretty good idea to keep the "serious" topics outside the off topic forum.

If you are only interested in music, but not in sports, it's quite nice to have a music forum without sports stuff.

They all got deactivated and archived when we switched to unique email accounts and confirmation of registration in 2005.

Dude, I'm way behind the times. You have unique stuff? I thought the whole idea of this place was to have DLs?

Also, I gave my password away and it was being swapped around (back when I wanted to cure internet addiction and the moderators refused to ban me.)

IIRC the use of the same email caused bot problems. Too bad

How about eliminating a useless level of heirarchy and just having 7 forums in overall board. 7 is a Minto sized number. And the way it is now, you have a section with only one thing in it. Not good PP style.

Out of curiosity, is the plural of forum, forums, or is it fora?
