EAIAC, EPIAT

has 1 post in over 2 weeks

since there are so many forums already, it might be a good idea to get rid of it and just use EYKIW to discuss U2 books?

i also think it would be good to do the same for IAMJ, but i dont wanna push my luck

The fact that books are published in waves and, unlike album releases, do not generate much speculation partially explains the infrequent posts. imo It's still nice to have a place designated for such discussions. As for eliminating IAMJ ... I like that forum! It may not be the most frequently visited, but I enjoy reading/contributing lyrical interpretations. Not to mention it gave us the "sexual messages in U2's songs" thread.

but that's just my opinion. Let's wait and see what others think.

even when a new book is released its not like there are lots of threads for it to deserve its own forum. i mean if a new book is released i think 1 thread about it in EYKIW would be sufficient without clogging up that forum.

that forum has had 1 post this month, does anybody really ever go there?

It took me several minutes to figure out what the acronym stood for. I didn't know it was a forum

no, I don't personally visit EAIAC EPIAT very often

I'm less inclined to defend it than IAMJ. You did acknowledge that you'd be pushing your luck, I'll give you that.

maybe it could be opened up to discuss books generally? we've got a movie/tv forum, b and c for music, why not one for books and literature?

there have been a few threads about books tossed into lemonade stand on occasion, but they sunk like boulders with all other stuff going on in there.

I'd love to see a place to discuss books in general as well. Is there any reason the existing U2 book forum can't be turned into a books-in-general thread?

A forum's sustainability and value are not determined by the frequency of new posts made, nor by the number of threads created. Subject matter, quality, reference and archival value or just some of the other factors in keeping a 'slow' forum around. Taxonomy isn't such a bad thing.

In regards to a new books and literature sub-forum in LS, I'm open to the idea. How many threads exist now that would be relevant to that...?

I dont think its a bad idea to open EAIAC to all books in general. A simple forum description change would take care of that.

I'd like to keep U2 related topics independent of general (non-u2) topics.

I think it's a good idea to make EAIAC a general literature forum so long as it's moved from the main page to a sub-forum in LS.
