Dating, marriage and relationships sub-forum....

So the idea of creating a sub-forum (i.e. in General Off Topic?) specifically for dating and relationships has been tossed about. Personally, I think this could be a really successful and popular area (considering the amount of relationship-related threads we've seen of late), provided everyone adheres to the same governing rules of the rest of the forum, regarding language, links and pictures.....

So what's everyone else's feeling on this? Any ideas, thoughts, suggestions?



Oh and *cough cough* I'll mod it if ya'll want...

Terrrible idea. Things would turn south very very quickly and spiral outta control.

Every other relationship thread on the forum. It quickly gets borderline acceptable.

I'd say pervy.

And I can see where it'd have that potential, so we'd just have to make sure the rules were VERY VERY CLEAR from the get-go. But while this crowd can get borderline, they're all, for the most part, pretty good, and I think would be fine.

This is a sportbike forum. We offer an Off Topic area to discuss anything not relating to sport bikes.

While it may be a popular idea, that's not our "core" competency or goal for this site.

Good point.

I think it's just natural to develop a certain kinship and bond with people with whom you already share a common bond (i.e. riding) and therefore are more apt to feel open to discuss things of a personal nature and seek out their advice.

But no biggie... was merely an idea.
