Dear all, whilst there is a long run project to reorganise the 'pin into something more userfriendly and perhaps even a bit more targeted in terms of the new parameters of debate on the site, I'm proposing in the interim, users would give their views here about what sort of sub forums, they would like to see...

Not suggesting any of the ideas will be incorporated as it is not my project but it would be interesting to get to hear some concrete proposals for realigning the various sections of the forum from the people who use them most!

Fire at will...


Can the owners give some sort of preamble as to what direction they see the site going, and what is there vision (if one) for the future?, Focusing on purpose if applicable,

The Central Bank is a bit cluttered these days, given the shifting ration bewteen economic and property topics.

How about splitting out the CB into a few new sub forums to make . e.g. Property, Markets, Industrial Relations, Political Commmentary, International Events etc and of course the Piston

That list is not cast in stone, I think we need to try to anticipate the trend in news & discussions going forward, ideally no one forum should become too top heavy, the pin is a broad church covering a broad range of topics these days, and the scope of the forums should probably reflect this. It would also be more helpful for newbies to find their prefered topics quickly and (here's one for the mods) it might reduce the amount of posts that need to be moved if there is a more streamlined and focused set of forums.

Oh and how about a slider in the signiature that indicates where you stand sociopoliticoeconomically :x Here's one I made earlier just for you TUG 8)

The central bank should be split between domestic and international.

The rest of the country price drops should be split (provinces rather than counties)

How about a whole section about jobs, getting people back to work and setting up your own business.

You should restrict the opening of new threads to senior members or on request to a Mod.

There are far too many threads started which are well covered elsewhere, but which newer members are not aware of and don't use the search function.

I'm not sure we would be able to process requests quick enough to make the forum work.

Then restrict opening of new threads to posters with 200+ posts. Seen that on a few sites.
