Thoughts on a Science/Tech Board?



What do yall think? I know there is a large number of users that keep up with the latest science and astronomy news. Couple that with technology (iphone, android, etc.) I think this would be a successful board.

I dont ask for much
But when I do...

re: Thoughts on a Science/Tech Board?


I am impressed by your level of research for this response. I feel like the addition of a science forum to the tech forum will help our chances. It's hard to have a logical discussion on science without being trolled.

Thank you for your support

"SciTech", perhaps. Although I feel that "technology" is hyponymous of "science", and thus "science" wouldn't need to be an explicit component of the board's appellation.

I say science because that includes space, space exploration, new discoveries, biology, archaeology, etc.

I fully support a tech board.

That would bring in an entire field of posters who would post on such a board.

I think the discussion would be better than what you could get on the OT these days.

Also, I hope that Chicken and Circus Child realizes that more posters = more ad hits = more money to be made.

I'm certainly not averse to having "science" in the board's name. I would honestly take anything at this point. As mentioned, we've be requesting this board for over two years.

It's 2013...we have a dedicated board for music, fantasy sports, and soccer...but not one for technology...

In one of those threads Fred said some admin was mulling it over.

Did you honestly not know that the Tech board is a pipe dream on the help board?

We've been asking for it hardcore for an entire year, yet the admins have yet to even respond to it. I really don't understand why they won't at least address the issue.

I know its been asked for before. What I'm suggesting is something more than just technology, smart phone threads, etc.

exactly. Unless a meteor hits Russia. But I think there is a large number of posters who would like to discuss scientific topics as well.

"SciTech Board", "Tech Board", "Science/Technology Board"...or any other variant would be fine. I simply can't understand why we haven't even received a response on this.

TigerFred alluded to the fact that this was Dhilip's decision, as he had to "mull" it over...but it seems Chicken is the one who decided on the Music Board...

A music board will happen. I am past the mulling phase. Just need to digest the rules thread.
