I've been thinking of adding 1 maybe 2 new section's to the site.
I was thinking of adding a ladies only section so the ladies might feel more at ease asking for advice about things they would rather not ask in an open forum .
And just to be fair I would open a men's only section as well. There might be some things us guy's would like to talk about with a little more freedom then on open forum.
Neither of the 2 new section will be used as a flame fest. All the same rules will apply that already apply to the open forum.
Let's take a poll and see what everyone think's. I'll run the poll for 14 day's at the end of 14 days we will go with the side that has the most votes.
Feel free to post why you voted the way you did if you want to.

I reckon it's a great idea Tim. It's not an idea of being divided between men and women but i know that there are things and topics that only women would love to talk and so with the men and his mates. I'm sure it would be nice reading (or are we women allowed to read?) what men are talking in the men's section. I'm sorry i'm just being cheeky and sneaky :lol:

It sounds like a most awesome idea, Tim! :) Then again, you might even get this forum better than ASAWA but of course I could be wrong though. No need for competition, right? Just my thought.

I voted no. It sure is a great idea but at the same time it divides the forum. The forum as a whole seems to be going great and to add for ladies and for mens only may just add friction to the forum's essence of unity. And there's always tempations for others to know what's being discussed in mens and ladies section that may lead to multiple id's or trolling.

What she said ...

I agree 100% !!!

I think thats one of the things thats wrong with "that other forum" ...

Also I imagine not much goes on in the "secret womans place" in "that other forum" but girls coaching each other on how to get what they want and how to get away with it ... I may be wrong but I'd like to hear what the girls here think of how the womens section there works or not works or whatever ??

George and Roxy have it right. Division is the LAST thing needed.

If folks want to go where they can let it all hang out, George, Don, Roxy, myself, and others know where that place is.

That "other forum" just keeps getting stranger by the day.

When I 1st thought about this idea I never thought that members would look at it as a division of the member's. Your right that's the last thing we want to do. I guess I need to think on this a lot more.
Anyone else have any thought's on this ?

well i voted yes however the idea of the forum splitting does not sit well with me either. although i am sure this was not the original idea i like this forum and its attitude. let's not change it.

FALL???? Oh no, that's not nice! We should keep doing what everyone thinks will be good for the sight. Sorry for my idea but as i keep reading other's ideas, i'm realised that it's better this way than changing or making new ideas that will just divide the group. Thanks guys for making me realised that.

Ok , I think I've read enough reason's not to start the new section's.
You all made some great point's that I had not thought about. So the new section's will NOT be added to the site.
I want to thank everyone for your input on this subject. It show's that the member's really care about the site and dont want anything done that will harm it.
Thank's
TIM
