    New Thread Prefixes

    Just to make vague thread titles easier for everyone to use, there are now two prefixes to use in this forum. One is "America", which means that your thread relates to US-specific politics , and the other is "Elsewhere/Universal", which relates to politics outside the US or which apply globally.

    Probably not an issue for you US folks (as it's pretty much the default), but it'll help us non-US folks out immensely!

    Collis Palatium is for safe and reasonable discussions, as per the previous forum. Threads with this tag will be moderated, so keep them civil.

    Soon, we will have the same problem on this side of the pond : with the U.E. the term European is more and more restricted to the country belonging to this organization. So, as Canada is not American, nor is Swiss or Norway European.

    All the non-Americans should wear badges so they can be identified.

    What's next, you put us in special concentration forums for our ilk, to ensure the purity of the CM discussions?

    Clearly he was lamenting the annihilation of the Armenians.

    (it's true, but it's still )

    Of course, the best part is when the Netherlands thinks it's Northern Europe. You still have Sweden and Finland in the EU.

    But he was in Russia, and they apparently don't feel comfortable without a dictator...

    Instead of just an "elsewhere" tag why not go ahead and break it down a bit more?

    South America, Latin America, Canada, UK, EU, Europe, Russia, Middle East, Africa, Asia, Australia, Mu, Atlantis, Gibraltar, Berkeley

    Adding a few more broad categories shouldn't be too much of a pain.

    Could do, but I think each would be a pretty small category. I might add 'em if I'm poking round the Admin CP at some point and have a few spare minutes.

    Atlantis is a must, though!

    Indeed.
