News Categories:
  • ECONOMY: Economy and fiscal news
  • POLITICS: Elections, etc
  • INTL: Foreign/international
  • NATIONAL: Domestic/national
  • OP: Op-ed
  • DISASTERS: A nuclear attack? Hurricane Katrina?
  • TECH: Non-gadget-related news. Keep discussions about CPUs, routers and mobile devices in the Technology forums; but talk about other relevant content here
  • ODD: Odd but interesting news that fits in none of the above categories.
  • OTHER: Other things; things that don't fit any of the previous categories
Just prefix all topic names with the category. For example, prefix "US consumers reel at fuel hikes" with "ECONOMY: " to make "ECONOMY: US consumers reel at fuel hikes" because that is related to the economy (arguably it can also go under national)

Also, sports, entertainment, games, etc go in their respective categories.

How about sports and opinions?

On a side note, can we not cite news articles but just point out things that everyone knows, and make a general opinion?

Can we change Odd to MISC or Humorous or something like that? Every time I see "ODD:" I think it's someone who doesn't know how to PM Odd o_o

HAHAHAHAHA... that was funny. I get what you mean though. You'd get used to it if you post in this forum enough.

Precisely.

I propose this be closed, unpinned and possibly deleted.

Seconded?

I added it, but just so you don't confuse it with the actual technology forums, please don't discuss gadgets or other devices here. This is for more of the borderline technology-industry related news, which could easily be put in Business (AT&T bans blah blah) or Politics (Obama promises universal broadband access)
