The Community Moderation team is proposing to restructure "The Lounge" category as follows:
The Lounge Category
The LoungeCurrent Events Desk
The new forums would be defined as follows:
This forum would consist of threads about topics do not fit in other forums (e.g., philosophical discussions). Strict no spamming rule, applies to all subforums.
Current Events Desk
This subforum would consist of discussions regarding real life current events and news stories. The Lounge moderator will run a "Question of the Week" program in this subforum, assuming there is enough interest.
This subforum would consist of threads about all sorts of entertainment media. This includes: Cinema, Games, Music, Sport, Television and Books. Use of tags will be strongly encouraged (e.g., [Music] in the topic for threads about Music).
This subforum would consist of graphics competitions, requests and portfolios. Use of tags strongly encouraged (e.g., [Portfolio] for portfolios)
This forum would continue to assume the role that "Games and Spam" currently holds. All forum games and miscellaneous spam goes here.
The Community Moderation team seeks community input regarding this restructuring. The restructuring is currently scheduled to occur on the 11th of August, 2013 and this thread will be open until that time.
