Thank you for listening and responding to member concerns and views on this.
General discussion can struggle to attract good discussion threads and the sight of Forum Games drowning everything else out was guaranteed to lower the credibility of GD still further.
On the grounds that the “Run by You” tag is now actually starting to mean something I am happy to see the new secondary tag given the name.
While it is in its infancy I am also of the opinion that only Eds should be able to assign threads to the new tag. Once the tag is established perhaps a team of reliable members could take over responsibility (something like KB editors) for assigning threads, competitions etc. with Eds merely keeping an eye on what is in the tag.
harrrrrry it should start off with only well-established competitions and features, such as creative writing
I can’t agree with this. As a result of this thread a member might come forward with a great idea, only to have it turned down on the grounds that it isn't well-established. Inclusion should be based on merit.
As regards a description for the tag here’s my suggestion: “Here’s where you can participate in regular activities and challenges, as well as share your creative skills in member-run threads and competitions”
