Here it is, you whiners.

:D


PS - Mods, please move any book discussion threads to this forum. I'll get the ones I see but I'm sure I will miss some.

Only to be taken away in 24 hours!

Jokes on you, well-meaning suckers!

What If? Book Forum

So I spent time yesterday while not posting coming up with an actual plan to convince you to make a book forum: some dramatic and unignorable.

A Poetry Strike.

I would only post in haiku, sonnets, villanelle, limerick, etc., until we got our book forum. My opening salvo:

No-bookforumverse ShaggyMarco said:
When random topics clog up all the Lounge
And one small thread is all the web I seek,
I find myself forced to search and scrounge
Through many threads that seem so dull and weak.
Comic Books are all-too-frequent teased
As being only for the dull and dim.
When my intellect is slighted I am cheesed!
To prove them wrong becomes my only whim.
I think a forum talking only of books
Won’t prove to all the world that we are smart
But if a newbie lurker comes and looks?
It may not change his world, but it would start!
Let’s level-up the level of our speech,
And make Ultimate Central a star to reach!

A forum for books
Is a goal worth fighting for:
Fighting for, in verse.

Strike for this forum!
Strike by speaking in poems
Abjuring all prose.

Poem Strike is Go!
Violate no forum rules!
Show support for books!

A poster on Ultimate Central
Started sounding something like a minstrel.
Some wished he would quit!
All took’d would it
Be a book forum for that was his wish, ya’ll!

Oh well. Glad I didn't have to do that for long.

No problem. I'm doing this hoping that it will be used - there are very few book threads on here.

If I miss any threads to move let me know.

I planned on coming up a new one a day.

Well its about time. I've only been prodding at this one since the last site reorganization.

Now when will you make a music forum. I wouldn't go in it much but I'm sure that others would.

Oh, and thanks. :wink:

Please please please please please tell me this isn't an April Fool's joke. :innocent:

(I"m fairly certain it's not, but just wanted to check, all things considered....)

Awesome. This is going straight into the "April is Poetry Month" thread that I thought I would start tomorrow.

I would LOVE to have enough music discussion to warrant a music forum.

Eh. I'm not the man to talk to on that one.

So why isn't the threads here updating on the recent threads sidebar?

Re: Your book forum has arrived

Have gone through 40 pages of Lounge threads and moved discussions that seemed to be mostly book-related here. Let me know if I missed anything.

(Oh, and someone kind of needs to mop in the last five pages or so of the Lounge forum. The drek is piling up.... :sure: )

Now, if we could just get that cybersex forum I've been clamoring for all along, we're all set.

I can do that, but I can only give access to you and TOG. Have fun!

Re: Your book forum has arrived

Thanks, E. This is great.

Should we have "All About [Genre] Thread"s? I actually disapprove of the All About threads because I think good discussion gets lost too quickly, but they would be good for a "Hey, does anyone else read this? You do? Okay, I'll make a thread for it." post.
