i dont think someone quite understands : governor and the politics forum have nothing

to do with each other. other than that ken was a good guy who used to talk on there and spread his message..

i dont see why we should completely dedicate that forum to him . give him his own forum !



by restricting the name of that forum to governors forums and activism and polticis and economics you are excluding all sorts of people from the discussion that would happen in plain old Activism and Politics...


PLEASE!!!!! change it back before its to late

I think you should wait this one out before you start to raise your flag.

The forums are being discussed now, the final details are coming into place. So easy boy.

this board is going to shit, or are we just not in the loop. boy, it sure would be nice if the members of the community....you know....knew wtf was going on...

should I plan on returning to A&P, or is it gone forever?

Really mods - you profess that you spend so much time and energy on 'fixing' the place, and yet you seem close-minded to discussion of changes, or even letting us know what is going to change.

Am I as confused as the mods? I hope not...

Okay yesterday a bunch of us spent over three hours on the phone working out the details of the changes. It seemed like very healthy discussion and there was ALOT of consideration about user rights and privileges and protection from legal/malicious behaviour.

As far as the original post goes J. As Don says things are still being worked out. I think the main forum page as it stands now is still going to change but it will take a little bit of figuring out to get it the way we want it.

The way we want it: Still waiting on more mods for consensus but right now it looks as if there will be parent cluster 'The Yahooka Lounge' but the politics forums will be taken out of there. There will be a new parent cluster which will house two links, one to the politics/economic forum (most of what A&P was up till now, so essentially A&P) and one will be the activism forum which is dedicated less to debating political opinion (except about herb/dissent of course constructive criticism is key) and more to supporting legalization action. Threads that, promote civil disobedience rallies etc, or voting for bills can go here. So can opinions about the war on drugs for example, or threads highlighting the hypocrisy of prohibition. I want to see it become a place of knowledge about everything cannabis; activism, info, appreciation.

And then subforumed onto the activism forum (which will be only titled in remembrance of Gov if thats cool with everyone) there will be the tribute forum which likely wont grow as fast and will sort of latch on to the activism one as its crown jewel or something.

Now is this enough communication for you or wha? Feedback is great, but claiming the board is going to shit when things are still in the works doesn't make me happy. Believe it or not the mods are all members too and articulate the same concerns we see here if not more so.

Yep, thats the general idea. Just wait and see.

As someone who is computer illiterate, you guys really fucked me up. Where in the fuck did everything go? Did A&P, as I knew, it disappear?

Don't go over board and blow a fuse over that^^LOL

We all have lives beyond the hooka, but you'll find that all of us mods are wanting the best for everyone and willing to spend the time to git-r-dun.

I think that it came out wonderfully. A separate forum for Cannabis activism is exactly what YaHooka needed. I enjoy the politics discussions very much but I often found myself wading through many threads looking for activism related news.

The links for Digg,del.icio.us, Technorati, and Furl will open up YaHooka to a much wider base of people. We may soon be filled to the brim with pot-friendly people.

Congrats and keep up the good work.

Esp the admins that end up actually going through and empirically making the changes. Its great too how testclear is trying to get shit done and has programmers working on some of our proposed fixes!
