    Expand the forum?

    F&N suggested that we broaden the interest base of the forum by including Canadians, Australians or New Zealanders. I think it would be a good idea simply to open this forum up to International Politics in general, considering we don't have all that much to talk about regarding the UK alone.

    I thought I'd take a poll before I ask Apok. What does everyone think?

    There's already an international politics forum. Make it a UK and former Commonwealth forum, maybe. Covers Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, etc.

    Hmm. Does international affairs cover politics? I guess so. Maybe Kevin's commonwealth suggestion is a good one...

    I think a "commonwealth" forum is a good idea. (Being from NZ)

    Re: Expand the forum?

    Honestly, I don't know enough about it to debate, but it might prove to be a good learning tool...

    Is there that much of a demand?

    Re: Expand the forum?

    I've only now found this thread....a few months too late? Should we still expand this forum?

    Unfortunately, there is hardly any interest in this forum whatsoever (which is what I predicted when the request was initially made). It's hard to justify keeping it around.

    Re: Expand the forum?

    Well, how about instead, like we do in the Socrates Cafe, we merge them back into one "politics" forum and preface each title with a two letter country abreviation?

    UK: Scottish Independence
    US: How Will Pro-Lifers Vote In 2008?
    NZ: Make something up as I know nothing about NZ politics

    Does that make sense?

    Re: Expand the forum?

    Generally a good idea, LP, if we kept it around, but I think we may as well eliminate it; the International Affairs forum will do for the few Canadian/British/Australian election issues we discuss.

    Re: Expand the forum?

    Yes, it should be a forum for international politics/specific countries which I will detail below.
    No, this forum is just for the Brits and it should stay that way.
    can anyone say biased?? lol but i vote other, I could care less who we open it too lol.
