Hello folks,

Did I miss the memo?

I don't remember seeing a thread announcing this new forum. Or has it been here the whole time and I've never noticed?

Was it renamed?

Keeper is confused..

Apparently it's been here for a while -- a lot longer than I have, anyway. But I only just noticed it the other day, too


Here's the introduction thread in the Social Issues Forum, which GradyPhilpott wrote on July 15, 2006!

It is an old forum from the old Above Politics board. The staff lobbied to have it returned to active duty, as it covers a lot of topical subjects that pop up on ATS, that really didn't have a home of their own. They would get tossed into Other Current Events or New World Order or General Conspiracy when their real home was Social Issues.

So we asked really nicely for a while for it to be returned to service and SO finally got to it recently.

Ah! Thank you friend.

That makes sense, after looking through the topics it's actually one of my favorite boards based on the little bit of content I've gotten into.

I'm gonna start looking for stuff to post in there...

Any 2010 update while I've got you on the line GAO?

It was one of my favs as well as well as many of the staff, hence the behind the scenes lobby from the staff for it to return.

You know, I expected that response for the 2010. I'll leave it that lol.

So I have to ask, what kind of things are we putting in the social issues forum, is there a specific guideline, or just things that generally don't fit the "conspiracy" category?

Nothing hard and fast as far as subjects go.

The more obvious ones like abortion issues, gender equality, gay rights, many of the police corruption type threads would belong there as well. The subjects can have a conspiratorial aspect to them, they just have to a have a few other criteria as well.

You want some great reading, check out the stickied thread in the forum "Best of Social Issues". Not only great material, it will give ya an idea of what the forum is about.

The links in that thread seem to be still directed at politics.abovetopsecret.com and end up in errors


Still useful to get an idea of what topics the forum's about, but it would be nice to be able to look through some of the old threads.
