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!
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.
with the next release - will there also be a "jump to first" like there is a "jump to last" now?
So . . . we only get to talk about SOME history? Who will be the arbiter of said category?
I bet you have a whole closet full of fluffy sweaters . . .
Why? Are the remaking the Bill Cosby Show....and ran out?
What does that mean exactly?
The Perfect Attire for the Sensitive Farmer I believe

AAAWWW...How sweet...You called me sensitive!
So, does this mean we're just going to stick to the history of knitting?
OH Please.......... Only Corduroy Jackets with leather elbow patches will be acceptible.
Yeah... Someone called me that,, So I thought I'd pass it on to the next Bill Cosby fan I meet.
What do they say...Funny...Coming from someone whose hat don't fit!
Well.... It seems that you are surrounded by madness..
How insane does one need to be; to walk in the shadow?
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!
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?
I have a large interest in history.. perhaps that explains the size of the shadow that my helmet casts
Why do guys always bring the conversation around to the size of their . . . shadows?
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
You may accept responsibilty for that as a result of your Fluffy Stuff

I find the politics and religion forums too subjective. A philosophy forum would cover all the issues that those two subjects do not. If say I wanted to write about animal rights it would have to be something in recent(ish) political debate such as fox-hunting in order for it to fit into the...

I believe you should keep your beliefs to yourself and do away with this forum because it causes nothing but fighting for some stupid reason!!!!!!!

I've been a member of many forums in the past, and they all had a thanks button for each post in the forum and each comment made on the post. I would LOVE to see this added to the HubPages forum!! First of all as the original poster you could just thank the people who replied to...

I believe this has been addressed before but can we please revisit it. I have very little interest in the religion and political forum threads yet they seem to occupy 75%+ of the latest activity. It's an inconvenience to have to browse through Jesus this and Obama that just trying to read on topics...
