Maybe we need some kind of Village Pump (Wikipedia equivalent) for general site discussions? Meanwhile, I'll stick a potential topic here: the old "I don't see gender"/"aren't you the sexists here, saying women want different things from men?" etc etc angle. Or is that too Feminism 101? Can we come up with a geek specific aspect to it? (FLOSSPOLS did describe the geek mindset as particularly individualistic and skeptical of claims that individuals are influenced by culture.)

: Re: a forum, yes, I think the time has come.
:: Forums: IMHO, having tried them out a bit, the forums are a PITA and I don't like them.

== Cleaning up the Gaming Section ==
:Not sure what you mean by a splash page (in this context)? Do you mean a big image somehow? Or something else? [[User:Thayvian|Thayvian]] 10:31, 19 August 2009 (UTC)
:: Just a page where you can find gaming in general and then go off into the various areas like Video Gaming, Roleplaying, etc. [[User:Koipond|Koipond]] 09:04, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
::: Seems like a good idea. [[User:Thayvian|Thayvian]] 06:13, 23 August 2009 (UTC)
== Moving off Wikia ==
* Sophie here from the #gf IRC channel. I don't think self-hosting will have too many problems with spam - on all the wikis I've hosted, defeating spambots is as easy as making sure that it's only editable by registered users with *verified* email addresses. (Or, as MediaWiki puts it, "authenticated" email addresses.) Of course, I understand that that won't allow for unregistered editing like this comment itself, so, hmm. --[[Special:Contributions/126.96.36.199|188.8.131.52]] 12:34, October 14, 2010 (UTC)
* I already maintain (sottily) several MediaWiki installs and would rather not have yet another to keep healthy. This wiki's already in place and the ads or colors don't seem too intrusive to me.
* My thoughts are similar to Liz's: the trouble is commitment. We need to find someone (volunteer(s), paid hosting) that would be demonstrably willing and capable of doing the hosting, updating and support for several years to make the hassle of a move worth it. It's one thing to say "not that hard", it's another thing to say "and I will do it, and I will do it for a long time." It's not ''that'' hard but... I don't see anyone volunteering to do what work there is. [[User:Thayvian|Thayvian]] 22:13, October 14, 2010 (UTC)
