Reading/History/Entertainment reorganisation
#1
One issue that's bothered me for a while is the placement of threads about books. These have previously been in a 'Language and Literature' sub-forum of History and Culture. However, over time, I grew dissatisfied with this arrangement because: a) the 'language' threads turned out to have very little crossover with the 'literature' threads in practice, and b) the 'literature' threads had a lot of crossover with the TV and movie threads (for example, we had threads on 'Harry Potter' and 'Game of Thrones' in History and Culture, when IMO they would make more sense inside Entertainment). 

Therefore, I have made the following changes: 
 
  • Added a "Reading" sub-forum under "Entertainment". This now contains all the threads about novels, comics, magazines, and anything else that people would read as a form of entertainment. (Books that aren't meant for entertainment - for example, science textbooks or religious scriptures - would still belong under the appropriate forum elsewhere on the board)

  • Re-named "Language and Literature" to "Linguists' Lounge". Nothing more really needs to be said here: it now only covers languages. 

  • Re-named "History and Culture" to "History and Society". The description for this forum is "Discuss our historical and cultural heritage, and our social and demographic make-up." This is meant to cover, broadly speaking, the social sciences and humanities: things like history, archaeology, linguistics, demography, sociology, and so on. This place also covers the cultural heritage of mankind, which includes things like mythology and classical art (but not popular culture: that's all covered under Entertainment now).

    So, basically, this section has lost the book threads, but we've brought in more 'social science' stuff to replace them. (For example, threads like "Definition of 'millennials'?" and "Post a fact about your country" have been moved into this part of the board)

  • Minor tweaks to the other 'Entertainment' sub-forums. 'TV and Movies' has been re-named to 'Screen and Stage', so it now also covers theatre. 'Music' has been re-named to 'Music and Audio', so it now also covers things like radio.

If you have any questions about the new boards, then ask away (there are probably still details to be worked out :P ). Otherwise, enjoy :) !

Thanks :) !

History and Society has ended up being a little sparser than I thought it would be, but I'll see if I can fix that :) .
