    Suggestion:

    Debate Section.

    2 members can set terms for a debate on a certain issue, such as what can and can't be mentioned, how many "rounds" of debate, and the exact topic being debated.

    After the set number of rounds are debated and members make their conclusions, the members of the forum can weigh in on the debate, and if the participants wish, choose a winner.

    Positives:

    Im sure there are a bunch of people who love to debate on here
    People could work on their debating skills and work out some of their political views
    Lot of information would be posted in a debate that would benefit the people who read and participate in the debate (Who doesnt love knowledge?)
    Could be turned into contests/tournaments/competitions in the future
    Would increase forum activity
    Would be fun

    Oh, I liked those, I could see changes and I felt like I was making progress when I saw these. But that's all right! I wish I could keep my stars. Although they aren't white, they reminded me that there are stars in my new country's flag, and they always made me smile.

    Maybe I could find a Hello Kitty waving an American flag and use that as an avatar, yes? That would fix it.

    IRC would be cool.

    For those who dont know what Internet Relay Chat is, you basically click a link to open a new window which leads to a chatroom. Its pretty fun and easy to use.

    Chats historically detract from posting and reduce activity in forums.

    I would assume that chats would keep people on the website longer, therefore creating more forum activity.

    Who knows though, maybe Im wrong.

    I know. It was ManilaFolder, and at the time I wasn't sure which of you it was, so I @mentioned you also. No worries.

    We've discussed that many times before, Magnum. I kinda thought you'd brought it up before. As I said, it takes away from threads, so no. Sorry.

    It does sound that way. Both Trinnity and I have experienced it doing the opposite however (not on this site). Chats are usually more of a problem than they are worth.
