Title: Separate Subforum for Low Oxygen Brewing?
Post by: dmtaylor on January 30, 2017, 07:34:08 PM
I figured this *might* be a good way to see what everyone is truly feeling on this topic.

Results will not be posted for the first 5 days.

I will add the fact that Bryan requested something like this in the past (and Bryan, feel free to comment below if you've changed your mind at all):

Cheers all.

This is a perfect opportunity for all you LURKERS out there to be heard, and not just those who may or may not be dicks.

I'd say no. People need to learn to behave, rules can't make people do that.

Hmm.  61/31 split is quite different from what I'd expected.  Now we know.  Not that it matters.

31%...... "Yes, there are topics and subforums that I have zero interest in, or that I feel negative towards, that I'd rather just never have to see, at all, ever."

I think that might be counter productive.  What about a dedicated child board under the all grain category kinda like the cask/barrel board under the bottling kegging category?  I am just spitballin' here but I feel that might allow a topic that has become quite large to have an established presence and easy access for those who are interested?

The answer to both of those is no.  If we do that, then we have to establish a forum for every method of brewing.  What needs to happen is for people to monitor their own behavior.

This is a dead issue. It will never happen. Nor would anyone want it. We have our own forum and a subforum here wouldn't solve anything.

And what happens when (NOT IF, but WHEN) people do NOT monitor their own behavior?  (And PLEASE, don't answer that with words -- it's friggin rhetorical!)

I partially agree, but the even from a organizational perspective as a relative new comer to the forum it would be nice to have one place to go for questions on it for knowledgeable answers for something that has become so big on the forums.  I mean the intro to lodo post is up to like 91 pages now.  That is a pretty intimidating thread to go though, where a child board could split it up a bit more and make it more digestible.  I am not in favor of separate or more involved moderation and cutting ideas and agree that everyone needs to monitor their own behavior but it is to the point it could really use its own "file" as it were.  Just coming from what would be helpful for me.  YMMV.
