Does the OCUK forum need any new sections?

    There are too many, and threads get moved out of GD to backwater specialist forums too readily.

    I've moaned about it before, but I once had a thread about a guy getting a boner at a naked cycle ride moved from GD to the pedlophiles ghetto, which killed a moderately amusing thread dead.

    I did think it odd that you weren’t aware of it!

    A travel subforum would be good. I'm always looking for inspiration for new places to go and I think people would be more willing to post their travel experiences if there was a dedicated forum

    Pedal power forum threads should be moved to motors.

    No reason, other than entertainment.

    For some strange reason, I initially misread that as "we need a kraken forum". I thought that would be a bit niche :)

    I don't see any need for any changes, neither adding new sections or removing existing ones. Or changing avatars or anything else. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Just remember to keep feeding the hamsters.

    RSS news feed section would be useful and keep GD clear of certain posters..

    There's a reason they were split because we weren't allowed to talk about US Shows that other people couldn't get their hands on.
    I suggested a US TV Shows sub forum and my wish was granted.

    The US TV Shows sub forum is basically the TV Shows forum though, there aren't many TV threads in the main forum.

    Also, whilst I'm at it... why is it called "US TV shows discussion."?

    Or just call it 'Rainbows'.

    Also maybe 'Why are men?' A pro feminist space to openly insult all men.

    Finance would be good. At the minute, whenever we have a thread on investing it seems to try and address multiple topics at once- a student loan thread ends up talking about mortgages, mortgage threads turn into talk of trading accounts, and so on.

    Money is relevant to all. I’m sure it could be a useful resource, especially with stickies etc.

    It was because and still is because the majority of us in this country shouldn't be getting our hands on those US TV Series.
    I or somebody else said it's not fair because some of us do have genuine reasons for watching them so the Mods said OK, discuss these shows but don't say how you've been able to watch them and those should still be the rules.
    At one time the normal forum had loads of Series we can watch in Britain being discussed and the US one had those that were hard to get but you're right, they've all gone in the US one now.

    Maybe you missed the P for Pedos btw. They want to be included so why not include them?

    So just have a new subforum titled '+' to abbreviate the ever expanding alphabet soup.
