Forums... have been simplified!

Just a quick update to let you know that we have streamlined the forum sections. Previously there was too much overlap between sections and it wasn't always clear to people which section a thread should be posted in.

In particular, the general discussion sections have been simplified so there is now a single place for general chit chat, a single place for current affairs (e.g. posting links to news stories about world events and social issues), and a place to start and get involved in big debates.

I am putting the Have Your Say section on hold for a month or so - just until we've had some time to get used to the changes.

Let's give this a few weeks, then we can review. For now though, I am done with moving things around (you'll be pleased to hear!)

Thanks for your patience

Edit one week later:

Just a very quick update to say now that it's been a week since the changes, I have made a slight change to Discussions as I felt there wasn't really a place to start a discussion about something that didn't fit as a 'current affair' or into any of the main topic sections. So we now have:

- Politics & Govt
- Social Issues & Religion [[For members only]]
- Other Discussions

I think making the Social Issues & Religion forum for members takes a lot of pressure off our mods and members (and us as a site).

I realise there is some crossover between the three sections, but generally we we will let members decide which of the three sections they want to post in

Hope this is to everyone's approval
