Here's the deal. We don't have one, never really needed one. It was brought up in jest because of Tish as a joke (some were probably serious). Now we have some sort of coalition of forumers trying to ban together to get a forum created for something we never really needed.

In essence you are playing an "economics" game. You keep creating an ass load of topics about food, not because you neccessarily want to but because your trying to make a point. What that's doing is making a false "demand" for said forum.

Like I said before in 4 months we have had what, like 15 topics releated to food. One I inculded was about Disney and Dog food. What's most likely going to happen is the Food forum will just be filled with countless. "What can I eat?, What's good?, MMHMM Grilled Cheese and Cheetos!" topics.

There's 3 ways to go, in my opinion.
1. Ask Syd to create a User Group and all you guys can talk about Calories all you want.
2. Suck it up and live with not having one.
3. Answer the poll and I would say if 75% of the forumers want a food thread then it should probably get made.

I don't own the site so I can't say Syd should take this poll as a reason to make it or not.

Well while there might not be a lot of topics on food i think the few food thread would get several replies, though that really doesn't warrant a whole separate group

Actually, we should just make the "Random Crap Forum", just to post stuff like Food and Drink, Sports, and the Derail topics.

EDIT: My "What should I eat" wasn't meant to promote the Food and Drink thread. Sorry if you thought it was.

It was just an example. The derailed topics in a seperate forum? There wouldn't be anything posted in the actual forums then.

Couldn't we make it a "Sticky" in "General Discussion?" If so, yes. If not, no.


I'm so bananas I'm showing up to your open casket,
to fill it up with explosive gases,
and close it back,
with a lit match in it,
while I sit back, and just hope it catches.

Blow you to fragments,
laugh,
roll you, and smoke the ashes.

None of which that have been discussed because no one cared enough.
You guys are acting like a child who wants a puppy. Sure you fight and fight for it but then after the fucker gets older you care less and less about it until it just becomes that thing we have on the floor.

I think he may be mistaken, Tish didn't suggest a Food Forum. I believe the rest of us suggested a "Kitchen Forum", where Tish would be the sole member.

The Random Crap thread IS the General thread, people. Jesus. NO FOOD THREAD.

Honestly, I say keep food in the general forum. If we keep having to give every damn thing its own forum nothing is gonna happen in General Chat. Besides, this is the most talk about food I've ever seen on any message board. and I kinda like it.


P.S. fuck carrot cakes.


There are a lot of what if's in life Donny. What if I hit you really hard in the face, knocked yo shit to the back of yo skull? What if I....had you girl gargle my nuts? The fact remains, you are a fuckin mutant.

I'm not voting. FUCK DEMOCRACY! Just kidding. I'm not voting because I don't care. I like talking about food. But whether it is in the general forum or a food forum, I don't care. In fact what better forum for discussing General Tso's chicken than the General Discussion forum?
