Question Should the gay bar be an official forum?

Should the gay bar be moved from the diary section and be made an official forum?

Please vote.

Sure, in fact that solves some questions! But brings up a few like what parent forum it's under, and also the fact that some debates about it or questions about it or curiousness could go under there falsely. I don't see a real need for it but I do see a need for a sticky in either the Gay Bar or Puberty101.

Anyone else who posts: don't bullshit about how there should be a straight forum

I'm undecided.

I think it should as it is the only forum we have that is related to sexuality.
If it was an official forum then maybe all the posts asking about sexual orientation would actually be posted there rather than some being posted in the puberty forums because some newer members have not scrolled down the page or something.

(I'll check this tomorrow or whatever to make sure it's clear what I am trying to say)

Wait until Carole comes back in the morning

Yeah. It would best go under General Discussions, it's not puberty, and it's not the Ward.

We already have relationship and puberty forums, if it were to become official it would cause a grand redundancy.

But the puberty and relationships forum isn't really about sexuality. If you visit the gay bar diary you will see that the topics in there are very different than those in p101 and relationships.

I think that any sexuality topics can be fitted into the puberty forums. Not only would this cause redundancy, but it would also complicate things when new members (maybe even veteran members) try to post something related to sexuality. For instance, say a member needs to ask about his or her recent change in sexuality and if it's normal during puberty; he or she might have a hard time deciding which forum it should be posted in. With just puberty forums, it simplifies things. Also, it's easier to moderate less forums than more forums.

My two cents...

Yeah those are my concerns. I don't think it's a solid idea and I think we should just leave it be for now :-]

I am for making it an official forum. For the reason that I know people need help with it. And as we are a site that aims to help teens, and this is something that effects a lot of people, we should have a dedicated forum covering this and not just a diary.

Is it really that complicated? Wouldn't anything related to sexuality be posted in the GLB forum?

no. I don't want the gay bar to be crowded with dumb Puberty101 nonsense or debates that go in Ramblings of the Dumbasses

What's there say about homosexuality anyway? How important is this change and why should we do it?

This is along the same lines that I was thinking of.
Most posts relating to sexuality are posted there anyway so I can't see how it would make anything redundant.

So you can discuss how hard it is to be straight and problems that you encounter with being straight?
