With the recent election for US president being over, the mods and admin feel there is a need for some changes in the War and Politics and Activism forums.
A forum focused on War and Politics on a Natural Family Living forum is bound to be primarily focused on the negative aspects of these things. We doubt while writing this that if one were looking at the board one would find three positive threads. This saddens us.
It isn't that anyone wants to do away with the board or that there haven't been amazing things posted here, but that we believe that changing things around a little will make it work better now that elections are over.
"War and Politics" will now be called "News and Current Events". This will, of course, include War and Politics but will also open the board to more of a variety of issues for discussion in that forum, encouraging more members to participate and hopefully dissolving the harsh divide that currently exists in War and Politics.
Also, to discourage the division in W&P, the tribe threads will be removed and will not return in any forum at MDC. As they stand, they do a disservice to MDC by identifying members of the various political sects and delineating for others between who is like and who is different, when the truth might be far more of a gray area.
Activism will change to "Take Action", this forum will be for action alerts and calls to action only. Letter writing campaigns, boycotts, and marches will be posted to that forum and all threads will be moderated. This will not be a forum for debate to take place.
