Perhaps it would be better to have "Debate topics" be not in Misc?

Partially to get more activity in Debates and partially to let those who don't want to deal with that stuff not stumble across it. (Because it can be frustrating to be chilling in Misc and suddenly arguments)

 

You mean a subsection for Debates that was devoted to a political climate but wasn't as serious?  It's not something I've considered (mostly because of the Administration thread and Minor News thread) but it could certainly work.  I haven't had any other proposals, but if this is what you're getting at, I'd like you to elaborate.

Well that's possible, if you can figure out if people would use it, to have some mid-ground. Because there are some political things that could spark debates but aren't actually...debates in of themselves. Like keeping track of elections and such. Granted it might be good to have that stuff in General and move it if it becomes a Debate but that does seem like a hassle.

Though another thought is that some Misc threads could be moved into Debates...kinda like what happened with Mod Count.

 

It's midnight I'm half rambling, fair warning.

Well my intention was have them either stay in Debates or be placed into General.  However, based off of "Meme Politics", it would probably be easier to dedicate a new rule or subsection to that climate.  Since there's plenty of material out there, it could certainly play out.

 

I'll draft some things in the morning and see how Debates reacts to it.

Rules have been updated with a "Flooding" clause.

Decided to get rid of the rule dad put up back in the olden days about no politics in Misc. Mostly cause political humor is a thing that exists and if discussions get too hostile/debate-y we have general site rules to cover it.

Posting to say....please don't make me regret this, people. I'd love to see political humor being posted without it turning into a shitshow.

Flaming is still a no go so if these posts target members maliciously then they're gone.
