Firstly, I apologise as I cannot star or flag (early member) but I absolutely agree. I definitely think we need a "utopia" forum.
Although personally, I don’t think a utopian society can exist (future thread), I don’t see the harm in uniting for a better cause..
A couple of ideas have been tossed around over the last few days that have prompted this request. One of them was Beezzer's idea of a solutions based "Think Tank" forum, and the other was Sceptic Overlord's idea of "ATS Teams".
I think we should combine the 2 and start a Utopian forum.
I am not keen on the idea but your post brings about the obvious point of this -- the posters of ATS are yearning for something else. Something new. Something where posters can post discussion pieces above the fray of the norm.
In academia they call that the Ivory Tower. Do we want those on ATS?
It may turn out that creating new forums is not the best direction to go... but deleting useless forums could be a more productive route.edit on 1/11/2014 by SayonaraJupiter because: add emoticons dammit!
I'm sure many of you won't like the title of the forum due to the stigma attached to the word 'Utopia" (I'm open to other suggestions btw), but I've come to embrace the term.
