tl;dr: alternatively Technology and Science.
Would accomplish:
-establishing culture of higher quality discussion
-creating space for expression of serious and intelligent thought

Hello and thank you for taking your time,

it is my impression that GBAtemp is a community of high IQ people (on average), alot of them being quite crafty, when it comes to hardware as well as software. In alot of discussion I had I was asked to provide scientific studies or was confronted with such. There seems to be a curiosity for knowledge in amoung tempers, I would argue you don't see in alot of other communities.

Now, I understand that the politics section was made to contain certain types of discussions and keep the forum nice and tidy. From this perspective there is no need for a Science and History section. I do however feel, that having such a section does raise the quality of discourse all across the board, because it has the potential to cultivate a stronger sense of proper discourse amoung a subsection of the userbase, and that would wear off on other sections as well.

With so much curiosity and brainpower amoung tempers this seems to me like a suggestion that deserves consideration.

How do you feel about this?

take a rad
TBH, like I said, if you really want to talk to video game enthusiasts about various topics related to history and or science, do it.

You asked a question, but I really feel like you're doing a long meme.

Also, I kind of remember some of your other posts.....so...at this point you might as well tell us this is your plan to spread EMF content.

I understand this concern, and to be fair even if I would not open a thread in this section about EMF, at this point someone else surely would.

To be clear, a Technology and Science forum would be really nice, but a History and Philosophy forum would be just as great. The core point is this:

GBAtemp would benefit from a forum that is intelligent and serious.

I might have messed this up by making it to specific. Since the downvoters don't make themselves heard. It might be worth a shot in the future to suggest a forum that is intelligent and serious, and see if it gets downvoted just like this suggestion or not.

My suggestion is to do the politics forum move only positive direction. The politics forum was created as a reaction to unruly behavior in other forums. It was successful in containing this. The reversal would be to amplify and spread the good qualities of this forum, which is the capability of serious and intelligent discourse.
As a non-high-iq person and quite probably below it, I vote yes.
Everyone will benefit.

Ah okay, got you.

I offer to be mod for politics and a potential science section.


you're being like Grover, but you want power, like Kermit.

I mean, you could make your own site....or Literal Google result

And stop making fun of our intelligence!

So we can have more threads like this one? Nah. Pass.
Cows milk has four times the calcium of mothersmilk (which was only consumed in early stages of life throughout human evolutionary history). A huge chunk of cardiovascular disease including strokes and heart attack is linked to calcified arteries.

you're being like Grover, but you want power, like Kermit.
It was suggested by a staff member that I become mod of the politics section, I'm just offering to cover the serious and intelligent section as well. I'm fine with anyone qualified doing it. The only user that had a higher vote count than me on 'the next mod poll' was @godreborn. I think he would be an excellent mod, but unfortunatly he declined. If there is someone else who would like to do it, that's fine with me.
And stop making fun of our intelligence!
How am I making fun of 'our intelligence'?

I don't think they're asking for mods atm. however, when they do, they say what systems they need them for, and you need to provide a resume, answering several questions. I think you have to be knowledgeable to have any chance, and at least knowledgeable about the system forums that are lacking people.

Are you a really good AI?

Everything on this site is filled with intelligence and is so serious.B-)
My point is that there is a lack of a serious and intelligent section in relation to the high average IQ as well as proportion of really high IQ people in this community.

Then, make high-quality threads people on this site will care about.
If you don't think that's a good idea:
Go learn how to make cheats/cheat updates for Switch/3DS/Wii (U)/anything
Write in-depth walkthroughs and guides

This hyperpolarised society is in dire need of communication of high intelligence and a kind of seriousness that is related to consequence (science, art, philosophy etc). I'm giving it a shot here, and maybe it will stick, maybe it won't. At least I have tried. I think only having a politics section, which is in large part quite unintellligent without a counterpart is just cultivating toxic thoughtpatterns.

Would be even worse because it looks like you're trying make yourself a niche in something nearly-unrelated, when you should just make your own site catering to your delicate needs.
I take it, you have nothing more interesting to say about my suggestion in this thread, so I'm not going to engage in your line of thinking.

...because you have the answer.

That's why.
That's why I said you were acting like Grover in that video.
The DV says enough.
The fact you have two pages alreadytelling you no......and you still try to change minds?


It looks so meme-ish because most people would get the idea, but you press on....and why?
