As for running the site? I think a daily/weekly/monthly poll on world affairs would be a good idea.
You could also set up different subsections where people of the same political background could converse without having those of opposite views join
in - you would have plenty of other places on the board for argument. So say if you have a Republican/Conservative view, you wouldn't be able to
reply in the Democrat/Liberal forum (you could still read it though) and vice versa. This would be set up when you register to the board.
That way there would be two areas where you have harmony on a boad that is bound to have a lot of disharmony elsewhere!!!! It would also be
interesting to see how the different groups act in their forums when there is no outside interference - a lot of people refrain from posting their
true views when they know that there can be a comeback from the other side.
Also, everyone should have a colour in their profile so that they can be identified as to which political background they are coming from and which
country. So if there is a vote or an issue which is contentious we would be able to see wether it is due to an idealogical or geographical split.
