    It would be good if there could be a history section to the forums, I think.

    So do I - it could be a combined Archaeology and History Forum.  Lots to discuss and argue about! smile

    Is there any chance of this actually happening?

    Its a good idea..... although with the potential to be as heated as Religion and Politics....

    With the next major update to the site, there is going to be a forum for every category, so you'll be able to discuss history here, or in any of the sub-categories of history.

    Posts in a sub-category will appear in the forum for each parent category.  For instance, a post in the Military History forum will appear there as well as in the more general "History" and the "Knowledge & Education" forums.  This should allow people to follow both general and very specific interests as they prefer.

    It sounds complicated, but the day to day forum experience won't really be that different.

      Well.... It seems that you are surrounded by madness..
      How insane does one need to be; to walk in the shadow?

        manlypoetrymanposted 7 years ago in reply to this

        You asking me that...or is that about the huge shadow your helmet puts out? Wasn't this about history...? Now it turned into sweater talk and sensitivity.Say...How special is that!

          Pearldiverposted 7 years ago in reply to this

          Ah yes thank you for recognising the historical aspects of MY Hat... And yes it's history exceeds that of Mr Cosbie's. Did I wrongly assume that some degree of sensitivity is required to write good poetry? hmm
          I have a large interest in history.. perhaps that explains the size of the shadow that my helmet casts lol

            Why do guys always bring the conversation around to the size of their . . . shadows?

            manlypoetrymanposted 7 years ago in reply to this

            Naw...Just wanted to see how far you and the esteemed Madame X...were ready to throw around the sensitivity stuff...with fluffy sweaters for each day at the lecture hall...or whatev!

            To tell you the truth...you really must be sensitive to be any kind of writer. The thing i hate most about Poetry is that it comes with all these preconceived notions...which have been force-fed to us for many generations of old. Do you think I picked the name Manly Poetry Man...because I wanted to talk about skipping through a field of daisies...No...I personally would like to see all that previous poetry hogwash...thrown out  the window...and not on the first floor...ya' know!

            But you do not assume wrongly that some degree of sensitivity is required to write good poetry...that would have to be very accurate. I imagine someone with no sensitivity...would do poorly at poetry...for sure. Then writing anything of interest to other folks...and lastly...being able to communicate well...in a forum full of writers. So... your assumption was made under fairly acquired senses of understanding concerning your view of poetry...Forgive me for being a bit testy and ...oh brother...Sensitive!

              And here I thought you guys were afraid of discussing military history if it happened to come up. My apologies.

                No problem...Ma'm. My apologies, as well, if I started the detour...All's fair in poems and war! Ok? Back to history...Military history is my favorite....WWII Pacific campaign to present...trying to sort out all the strategieas and technologies...really complex...yet in many battles...just having home turf...has been proven to be a mighty weapon.

    Because he refused to be drawn into a discussion on his sensitivity smile
    You may accept responsibilty for that as a result of your Fluffy Stuff lol
