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.
