My main problem is in actually forming a question to ask - I was always terrible at asking questions, since I never really needed to in high school, and probably never learnt the knack. I just preferred to go find things out on my own (darn self-sufficient me again).

If I think of something interesting I'll post it here before I run off and do a search then... Cheesy

There will be (I think) a Threadstarters lounge-area where things like how to phrase topics can be discussed, and advice asked about hot-button topics that need special handling to avoid the discussion disintegrating into 'camps' the way some do. 

I was a threadstarter on the old board, and I remember wanting to start a discussion about the usefulness of witchcraft/magic in crime, but I wasn't sure about board ethics.  I didn't want to sound like I was advocating it, but I was interested in the possibilities.  I checked then posted the thread.

If we do have a lounge set up, threadstarters will need to have their permissions changed so they can get into it, which is where PMing me and officially volunteering comes in.

There is no restriction on everyone else starting threads, too, of course.  It's just that the official volunteers will be committing themselves to a particular level of participation, and occassionally to bringing up topics that people may be interested in but hesitant to start themselves.

Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in
