In the past week there have been seven active threads in 'general LEGO', which doesn't seem so much activity that things get buried. In the past month, if you erase out the ten or so threads I started on cow-related topics, there are 21 active threads. I'd rather have that than break it up into two forums that each get an average of one new thread every three days.

He IS a member of Classic Castle.
I don't think there is a need for this forum. I agree fully with Bruce. This is a site about CASTLES. We do not need more off topic forums.

If we had tons and tons of members posting everyday (like Robin Hood said), then it would be necessary, but until then, I don't think we need one. I wasn't going to push for one anyway, but...yeah. Thanks for the feedback everyone. I was curious and thought it might help a little.

Are you against that forum too?

We have an abundance of HIGHLY talented builders. The way you said that kind of infers that we don't have them now. If you have any doubt, go look at all the past years of the CCC. Some of the most famous builders are members. We do not need another forum or sub-forum to attract anyone. What we need is intelligent conversation about interesting topics, good quality reviews of sets and MOC's, and understanding that sometimes during the year things slow down while people's lives get busy.
