This is just one of a range of threads that really deserve to be singled out for special treatment.

One possibility would be to have a "Features" forum where threads like this could be moved. the forum would only contain a limited number of threads so they wouldn't get lost in amongst the general chat. I also need to find somewhere to put the features & articles from the previous incarnation of RIBnet, and this mugfht be the answer.

Yes, we can do this, and the new FQ section will be just the place for it.

It's not as simple as doing a search then copying the URL of the result, as the system creates a temporary page for each search.

With a bit of digging, I have found a way though. As an example, have a look at the worrying amount of discussion about beer!

Where should non-rib, boat related talk go? Obviously it couldn't go in ribs & ribbing, cos it's not rib related. But it can't go in Other Stuff either, cos that's fer non-boaty discussion.

Anything about boats other than ribs, but still relevant to ribsters.

Got anything interesting to post, or just asking hypothetical questions?

I wasn't aware that there was any form of boating, other than ribs!
