    I'm getting use to it. But for it to work people need to stop fighting about it and go back to posting like normal.

    Isn't there already a thread about this? My opinion remains the same. No, I don't like it.

    I like less heavy handed moderation and the freedom to be sillier, but not the splitting of OT to achieve it. I would have preferred promoting the 'red diamond thread' initiative harder accompanied by relaxing the rules of OT in general.

    The rolling out of this new forum structure went about as well as new coke.

    I have to say that I love the split. A less moderated forum for those who prefer it that way, and a more serious discussion forum (they actually critique studies instead of making unsupported assumptions or talking points!).

    I like it because I rarely have the motivation to post in the super serious, heavy topics because everytime I do I'm either ignored or drawn into some huge debate that ends up over my head. This way, I can enjoy the lighter stuff without being tempted to lurk on other discussions I have no intention of posting on.

    I like it less now. I find myself less frequently clicking my bookmark to get here than I did with OT.

    The cut and run to the Chamber when a Tavern thread gets tough is a beautiful thing to behold.
