Thread Ethics and Design

Re: Thread Ethics and Design
(A) Right now we have two forums: General, and Bringing About a Voluntary Society.
Under General, we have four subforums: General Discussion, AiLL Article Discussion, Alternative Fuels, and Private Property. These topics don't seem at all intuitive to me.
(1.) I'd place Alternative Fuels under a new subforum such as Construction: Land and Locomotion.
(2.) Private Property could go in a Philosophies of Anarchy section. (Religious or spiritual takes on voluntaryism can fit comfortably here.)
(3.) AiLL Article talk could be pinned at the top of a subforum named Leading Lights where current similar articles could be posted.
(4.) I'd add a subforum on Money to feature the major biggie writings we're familiar with (pinned); another subforum on Health would organize medical and alt-suggestion posts.
(5.) Education Insights wouldn't be just about children, but how to catch up on our own.
(6.) Business Ideas and Working Enterprises is self-explanatory.
(7.) Of course, we'd need Horrors and Halls of Shame set up for those times when the shock is hellacious and we just gotta rant. :o
(8.) I'd rename General Discussion to ChitChat and Qs for Marc & Kurt, and move virtually everything out of there, all except (a) self introduction of new members, and (b) direct questions for the webmeister or Marc that are unrelated to discussion of other standard topics.
(9) And finally (on this 'first draft off the top of my head) I'd ditch the Bringing About a Voluntary Society forum and rename the General forum just that. It's what the whole board is about, imho.
Note -- Anyone, including a moderator, could post a link in one forum to point to a post in another, so that we each can place our posts where they most substantially belong, yet direct possible interest in another forum to that post without repeating it.
(B) Whether a structure like this works is dependent 90% on the participants thinking before they place a post, and moving or wiping the post if they discover it doesn't fit/add value to the thread. If we do have the structure, it's easier to avoid both repetitions and hijacks.
© I wouldn't impute negative motives to one's deletion of posts; there are many good and salutary reasons for doing so. An author may wish to lighten the bandwidth by removing surperfluous messages, or to zap something no one replied to, or which received irrelevant heckling rather than thoughtful response.
So, I believe anyone should be allowed to delete or modify their posts at any time -- just as we are given the option to quote a post at any time. Please don't change that setting, Kurt. :'( Coercion to force one's work to remain on the board would be unwelcome to me. :-\
thank you! :-*
