I thought about it, and think it might be a good idea to merge the two forums to make one. In my opinion, they seem to revolve around the same kind of things. Sunset just seems to be more personal. But, it seems like we could just be taking up too much space with 2 forums, being very strict at what content is posted in them. So by merging the two, the forum would be the same as the two were, just more broad, active, etc.

I believe we had a forum just like this back in the days of MoD, as Rogue brought to my attention. It was called the Alcatraz, or something very similar.

I think you're missing option 3 - I don't care either way.

I can see reasons to keep them seperate and to merge them. Both sides have their merits, so I don't care either way.

I said no...Reason why was because those two places need to be seperate...no one needs to debate about personal feelings, or a place to whine and cry because of something happening to the president or something....I just think its a bad idea waiting to happen

With a good moderator *cough*, there wouldn't be any arguing in the personal threads or whining in the debate threads, Sajin.

Edit: Lemme correct myself. There wouldn't be excessive whining in the debate threads. Some whining is inevitable.

I think it's a good idea. I don't think it would be a problem and it would get a lot more activity if they are merged. It also might encourage more philisophical debates..since we don't get anough of those.

I don't care, they are forums that don't interest me, seeing as I don't need people telling me what to do with my life.

I can't see how you can get advice from strangers.

Well, maybe not advice, but it's good to see things from a different perspective.

I still think it's a good idea to merge them, though it may be a bit confusing at first, but I think it'll be easy to differentiate what's what just by the title people put. Half the time people start debating what will help the person who's ranting. o.o Hope that made sense.

The Alcatraz! I remember that! Ah...the good 'ol days...

Anywho...I honestly don't care either, to tell you the truth. Like Tanis, I can see why they could be kept seperate, and why they could be merged in together.

It's odd because overall what I've read here, and in the staff forum, people don't want this to happen, but the poll doesn't show that.

That is a definite no, little bro. 'Least in my opinion. Yeah, there's some similarities. Like they're both odd and goofy forums...but like I think if they were merged, that would make the forum WAY too cluttered. Someone would post a thread one day and the next it would be at the bottom already, ya know? There is a bit of differences with jokes, you know, they tell a bit of a story sometimes, then the punchline, haha...all that stuff, AND there's riddles and such...like the "obvious answers" thread Zabuza has going. Then there's random stuff that doesn't really fit in with the rest, but still popular topics of discussion. So yeah...I would definitely vote no in that department. Sorry. **gives noogies to teh Little brother**

I don't understand how you can merge two different forums. One's a bitch rant forum (Sunset) and the other is a discussion forum (Debate). It wouldn't make sense to merge the two, because we wouldn't be able to tell which threads are debates and which threads are opinionated thingies.

My vote stands at No.

I second Zabuza on that one, and also add that merging the two together would make it way too cluttered. So yeah, that is a No from me.

Now thinking more on it, I think we should just leave everything as is, Maybe in the future we can find a better reason to merge a forum or to. lol

You can't trust the poll, Xeo. You know that some people vote just to screw with other people. Hell, Rogue voted for Bush only to cancel out Zoso's vote for Kerry. I've voted in opposites as well just to throw off the validity of polls.

It's nice to introduce the polling system, but without an implicit discussion on your reasons for voting, you can't base a huge decision as this on just a graphical poll.

Or, is it that you just really want to use "The Alcatraz" for something? How 'bout rename "Game Over" as that? It still fits.
