Suggestions for a new forum
If you were to build a new forum...
1. What ground rules would you have?
2. What functionality would your offer?

My take on it:
1. Post to appropriate categories (Micro-Politics, US/World Politics, Culture, Soldier/Vets, Personal ads, etc). Moderators would have the power to move threads to enforce categories.
2. No language filtering (profanity allowed)
1. Llive Chat Room section
2. User ability to disable/delete accounts
3. Private messaging
4. Report Abuse
5. link content to social media
Anything else suggested?
It would be nice to have your actual identity displayed but I doubt that will ever happen.
I'm all for this xectms. It would be a relief to be able to log into a forum and jump straight to a category of interest instead of having to see news as well as other irrelevant topics.
Indiviuals could always opt to use first.last instead of handles.
