i know that the debate forum says that it's "For political, religious, philosophy, and current world news discussion and debate."

yeah, it says it's also for current world news, but i seriously think there should be a seperate forum for that.

the seperate forum should be for current world news, local news, or just any news or even catchy headline. sometimes news dont need to be debated, just read, or commented on. for example:
"News bit: Naked 'Tickler' Targeting Sleeping Elderly Women" doesnt seem like it needs to be debated upon. just commented on is all. or even, "Couple bathes in own feces and blame the health dept. for it" i dont really see how it could be debated upon.

anyways, i just think it would be clearier, and easier if there were a seperate forum for news, than mixing it with the debate shrine.

I agree with this in that I'd rather several topics that I start are not meant for Debate, though they tend to be moved there for various reasons.

When Debate, with the original name "Current Events", was first started it was meant for news and feature articles to also be placed there. However with the demand for the forum to have a "snappy" name, the idea of what the forum also meant for news and such went out the window.

A separation isn't a bad idea.

I think that seems like a very feasible idea as well. We have to keep in mind that only interesting news should probably be the only stuff to go into such a forum.

Aka General discussion, it seems alot of the "Weekly World News" are being put under general discussion. Not to mention if its big enough its going to be put there anyway...so yeah, I think thats not really a bad idea.

I don't think it's a big deal to post news in the General Discussion forum.

If you think the topic is going to be heated up, or are making a topic solely to argue and explain your opinion on something, then I think it should be posted in the Debate Forum.

But really, the General discussion is for anything basically. News articles are fine.

Which would by why giving news a seperate forum would be a waste; there wouldn't be nearly enough posted in it.

I say keep the news in General for now, and if things heat up in the thread move it too debate. Though it does seem that after two replies most of Rogue's threads get moved to debate anyway by someone.

I agree with Elara, News shouldent be placed into the debate shrine unless someone makes an arguement about it. However alot of new people here may post, argue, then notice the next day that it was moved to debate shrine without them knowing...you may need to put a notice under Debate that

*Debated arguements may have been moved to this thread*

That would make life a little easier on this board...
