I often come across interesting items that don't quite fit within the scope of any of the Mysteries Subjects forums. Perhaps we could do away with the 2012 forum (it'll be 2015 in a little over a week) and add a new one for miscellaneous topics? Maybe even two new forums: one for general mysteries (vanishings, unsolved crimes, etc) and another for miscellaneous anomalies and phenomena.

I'd like to suggest the forum name "General Forteana" for the latter, in keeping with the tradition of honoring Charles Fort.

EDIT:

Here's an idea for a Charles Fort button:

I'm also thinking a forum under Science & Technology for gadgets might be cool but maybe I'm just a nerd.

High pressure nerd, too. I can tell by your "bell" helmet.

Call it the "Gizmos" forum.

The contraption is actually to keep me from spilling any monster!

A fortean forum would be cool.

I have a feeling that an unsolved crimes/vanishing forum would absolutely explode in popularity. I actually know of someone who disappeared under mysterious circumstances. It was a big local news thing, and to this day, the person hasn't been found. If we get an unsolved crimes/vanishing forum, I might consider creating a thread about it.

Also, a mandatory request for an "animals and pets" forum.

I seen guys wearing that at Grateful Dead concerts. I know what gas that is.

Sorry for the delay. I see this idea takes on great interest.

Oh, well.

If you ever start a crime mystery, ping me.

Agreed... Fortean Phenomena is fascinating and it's own forum would be nice, though it's already partially divided over other forums already, a catch-all would be good.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

A Forteana forum is a great idea


Too many OPs fall outside Gen-Con, Cryptozoology and Paranormal so a catch-all forum could work.

Way back in 2012, I dumped a thread in General Conspiracies because it didn't fit in any forums - Fish Float, Not Fly. Why are they falling from the sky??

It wasn't Grey Area as it was backed up with sources. Wasn't Skunky because it wasn't personal experience. Neither was it 'paranormal' or 'philosophy & metaphysics.'

As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.
