We will probably be getting word real soon from DaveShack about the new Forums, so I though a discussion thread about their use and format would be good. If you have any suggestions or comments about this topic, please post below. I think we can change the name of the Main Forum to the ISDG/MTDG Forums, with a small sub-title stating its purpose for Democracy Games of all kinds. The MTDG is about to end, so maybe another in-house Democracy Game can get started in its sub-forum. So the threads in the main forum can be used for anything related to the games, such as the MTDG Turn Tracker. Information about the ISDG "clock" can be posted here. Random discussions between sites is another possibility. Pretty much an open forum. I believe all 4 sub-forums should be used. The first can be cleared of threads and renamed ISDG ~ Democracy Game. This would be for any team discussion not of a sensitive nature. Organizing open content before the game would be an example. This sub-forum would also contain the "private" forum for the Democracy Team. The "private" forum would only be accessable for Democracy Team members and would be used for any discussions and polls that need to be kept secret from other teams. Information security if you will. The second sub-forum can be cleared of threads and renamed ISDG ~ Succession Game. This sub-forum would mirror the ISDG ~ Democracy Game sub-forum in style and function. The third sub-forum can be cleared of threads and renamed ISDG ~ Diplomacy. Here any team from either site may contact any CFC team in regards to diplomacy, ROPs, treaties, or any other comminque. This sub-forum would be different from the main forum in that it would be for official business (see examples above). The last sub-forum would remain as is, for the MTDG II to continue and complete. What are your thoughts?
