    Based on there are three options:

    1. Keep things as they are (one main section and two subsections).
    2. Have one main section and merge both subsections into one (you'll have one main section and one subsection).
    3. Have one section that includes everything, separated by tags.

    You can vote on ONE of these options. This is a binding vote. That means that whatever gets the most votes WILL be implemented going forwards. In the event of a tie we'll hold another vote with only those two options listed.

    This vote will be open for one week. The decision will be implemented within two weeks. Votes are private. You can change your vote until the deadline of one week from this posting.

    Keep it. A bunch if tags are annoying and often abused.

    Yay, I'm in a majority! Philosophy and Debate corners don't get a lot of action, so merging those sounds like a good idea.

    As I said in the other thread I'm personally (as a poster, not as a mod) most concerned with there being a clear indication of which OPs are about things that actually happened (e.g. "U.S. nukes North Korea") and which are about opinions (e.g. "U.S. should nuke North Korea").

    This is important for younger members who might not have developed the source-criticism skills to tell that "Tillerson says Trump is an Idiot" is something that objectively happened while "Trump is an Idiot" is somebody's subjective opinion.

    Likewise a headline such as "America becoming a Dictatorship under Trump" could sound like it's an objective fact to someone who doesn't know that there is no universally-agreed-upon definition of "dictatorship' and therefore any branding of a country as such is going to be someone's (however widely held) subjective opinion.

    Both tags and a separate subsection work for this purpose, but I think a separate subsection is clearer. It could be called "The Café Smoking Room" or something like that.

    Would have preferred ranked choice voting. My ideal would be option 3 but since we can only select one option I'm voting for the lesser of two evils to stop the madness of option 1 remaining in power.

    Option 2 it is.

    In the end @Tazmo will come back and merge all NF sections into the Blender.

    Then he'll sit back and look upon a grateful universe.

    This vote has been a successful experiment. We may try more things like this in the future.

    my god... you're right. better leave it as it is. even if the subsections are hidden-lost-in-oblivion. "Keep things as they are" is the only sane way.

    Are we going to be able to discuss the terms of The Great Merge?

    Many of us (most of us?) don't actually want a simple combination of the currently existing two subforums, but rather a catch-all forum for everything that isn't 'official news'.
