Second lot of improvements

OK we now have three Politics board, basically Australian Politics, US Politics and International Politics which is either global politics or politics in countries other than Australia or the US. I thought about UK politics but does anyone really care? UK is sinking in terms of power, wealth and relevance post-Brexit. UK really is not important enough to warrant its own subforum.

Global Warming is a bit hybrid, science and politics but I would class it as political.

Then as part of second improvements I would like to see two areas of the board marked as such somehow:

Politics
Aust Politics
US Politics
International Politics
Global Warming

Non-Politics
Off Topic
Sand Pit

The invisible-to-guest boards, Members and Mods can be below those two sections, not in a separate box.

How to mark the two separate areas (and, maybe, if we gain a few more members, Member Run Boards as a third section?)

Color blocks, each with a header explaining the boards briefly

Or lines enclosing each section?

This is where we can make the forum shine!

Ummm Archives would be a third section with Archives and Improvements in it.


Comment?

Yes, that will be fine, would go in Non Political, can move the Netflix thread there.

Better than Sand Pit. The Song thread can also go there.

Don’t want the front page too big but is OK as is plus 1-2 more boards.

Maybe make it Arts and Entertainment or Film and Song?

If we get agreement on a title I will create the board and move the two threads to it.

Hmmmm, just realised that the developer was lazy and the link to Rules is to the forum, bypassing the Log In/Register window.

Need to have the rules shown in a separate window linked to the Register window. Just as well I didn’t delete the Moderation Guidelines post!

The buttons on the Log In/Register window are too bloody big! Means no useful text can be shown.

The other thing, I want a html page where links to other boards can be shown and links from Twitter/Facebook can go. (The other boards would have links to us.) We need a permanent page, not a continually changing one for this. This page could be the Log In/Register one.

There is a captcha on the window—pissweak, bot writers have figured that one out! A question like the one on the old board it should be,

I've absolutely no idea. It's on the Australian Museum website, hilariously.
