    The Everything Else area has had a lot of local news that involves death lately. I was wondering if that woudl warrent a new sub forum in there. No offense to those that post it, but having that many threads about tragic accidents can be a downer at times. Maybe it can be called "Local News" or something since they are all about the same subject.

    I don't mod that forum. This sounds like a question for Shaggy/Iceman.

    Having a subforum for death? I would not vote for that.

    Sounds like an exciting mod opportunity!

    Is everything
    We could lighten it up a bit and call it "Tragic Accidents and Death"

    Just make a Travel thread in EE. If it blows up with a lot of popularity then I could ask Shaggy/Iceman about maybe adding a new forum. I just don't want to create new forums for everything.

    I don't either. Post up that travel thread and see how it goes. The local news sub section, I'll see what can be done.

    I completely understand what you mean with the death in the everything else forum. We could try adding the new "tragic accidents and deaths" section. Want to check with Shaggy to see what his thoughts are

    I really don't want a tragic death section on here. Maybe if it was a News section, that was mixed with certain news then fine, but not a section for just people that have died.

    Thank you. That would make this board depressing and bad.

    I think the EE forum just needs more people posting in it. It just happens to be a lot of death stuff. I am against a sub forum for news or death.

    How about a subforum to suggest subforums?
