New section for the war?

What's Hot
Emp_FabEmp_Fab Frets: 21224
Given that the Ukraine war is probably the (potentially) most dangerous thing to happen to the planet for years, even surpassing COVID, should we have a separate section?  At least until the nukes start flying?

    Why?

    It will be even less well informed than the C19 thread.

    Because lots of people come into places like this to avoid temporarily the stress of constantly reading headlines and thread titles

    yes please, put it somewhere like we did with COVID

    Can we just rename the Covid section something like The World Has Gone To Shit and put the war Discussions in there?

    It seems that most war threads get moved to P&E.
    Having trouble posting images here?  This might help.

    How about a separate forum? You know, one NOT related to guitars and music…

    Contrary to received wisdom, I'm not sure tFB is, in fact, the entirety of life, nor does it need to cater for the entirety of life. We already have a good array of topics within which to spout ill-informed bollocks on pretty much anything we want. I'm not sure there's any need to add yet another area for us all to get our kicks navel-gazing and winding ourselves up on subjects most of us know fuck all about, whilst probably annoying those who might have actual skin in the game.

    So, er, that would be a "no" from me. I'm sure there are plenty of other outlets ready-made for such discussions.

    It would be OK if it was like p&e and you could totally ignore it if you liked. I often forget p&e is even there. Which is nice.

    IMO, there should not be a separate war Discussion section. 

    What difference would a bunch of British guitar enthusiasts, opining on a foreign conflict, actually make?

    Probably about as much as Weimar cabaret satire did to prevent the rise of the Third Reich and the outbreak of WW2.

    Be seeing you.

    This. 

    That board pretty much turned into a private argument between a few members with opposing opinions, who are still at it. 

    Add in the odd eejit posting conspiracy theories and it ended up being the waste of server space it is now. 

    I don’t see how a war board would be any different. 

    I can't help about the shape I'm in, I can't sing I ain't pretty and my legs are thin

    But don't ask me what I think of you, I might not give the answer that you want me to

    can we just have a general war forum? 

    We can discuss our favourite wars, the best war films, why Alexander the Great wasn't as good as Rommel, how best to ambush tanks and how we would have handled the sacking of Constantinople. 

    also...



    pew pew. You're dead

    no I'm not

    yes you are, I shot you.  You have to count to ten.

    Not true.

    In just a few weeks we might all be thankful of any advice we might get from the internet.  Everything from conscripting our loved ones into the forces to advice on escaping the country (when and where) and how to deal with the likely stresses of war on our doorstep.

    Sure, we might not be able to do anything about Putin, but we may be thankful for any help for ourselves.
