public service announcement (in General)
Did you know that there are Debates and Links forums? Not everyone has them checked, so I thought I would point this out to people who haven't been here for very long, or people who just forgot that they exist!
Debates forum is usually for discussion of contentious issues, both CB and Non-CB related.
Links forum is for posting interesting links to, and so that people can comment on the links.

FYI: Links really isn't spam or bickering. If you've left it unchecked on purpose, it's safe to turn it on.
Not only that, both debates and links are pretty low traffic, so you can leave them on and still get all the other great stuff.

Ok, I had no idea "Links" even existed.
I am 100% sure I did NOT manually disable it, yet it was the only one disabled in my settings.
I don't recall if I had to manually enable "Debates" when it was first introduced, but it might be possible that I had to.
So my question is... why didn't they come with an automatic enabling when they got introduced, and let users "opt-out" if they want to ?
Heck, better reset all forums to enabled for everybody (or, at least do it for Debates and Links), and make an announcement that you can turn some of them off (again) if you want to.
As soon as we can choose how many threads are shown on the homepage I'll put it at 15 or 20 and add those forums... until then, I guess I'll tend to forget about them =/
sickone, I think that when registering they are all enabled, but if the forums get created after you registered, they are not enabled automatically...
At least I think that's why.
