    Okay so I fired off a PM to Fazle (Transcript).

    That there generally states what all such a forum would have and be like. I know it's been requested and well...

    Was the response from Fazle, so it's obvious he's ready to give it a shot if you guys are ready to accept another Forum. I know I am!

    I wouldn't use it, but yeah, there are a bunch of military guys here who would probably appreciate it. You have my vote.

    Least my damn pic threads wouldn't be killed after a few minutes on Off-topic. I can easily get 40 pages with 8000-9000 views. :love: But with how fast things die on here it'd last a lot longer in a forum of it's own. Specially since my pics are Perma-hosted.

    But aswell I'd like to post articles that would interest those of you in the Military :)

    I'm not in the military but I think it would great if ya'll that are could use it, and it would be good for anyone thinking of enlisting so that they could ask questions before they did so.

    Sounds like it would be just another unused subforum, but if some people want it doesnt matter to me :dunno:

    :hug: I know the feeling, I know people from the CF who are in Sri-Lanka. Afghanistan, and a few soldiers from the states serving in and around Iraq. Certainly would be great with a forum cause if they ever wanted to post daily or weekly updates or photo's it'd be much easier.

    On the contrary you'd be quite suprised.

    Plus, it'd be awesome if I had access to something like this cause once I start my training for the Canadian Forces I'll be trying to post daily/weekly updates on how the training is, what the conditions are, and advice/tips.

    What Liberal bastards are voting against this??? What is it going to hurt you if there is another subforum??? If you don't want to go in it, don't. Its simple. Let the people who want it and need have it.

    Hmmm, I guess military would go under Lifestyles I guess. Can't call it a job, it's more of a new life. But it could fall under community *scratch's chin*

    Damn rights I got this shit planned out :fawk: :wavey: :big grin:

    There are lots of specific forums that have alot less merit than this idea... I say go for it, it would be a great place to post experiences, news, and answer questions...

    I'd like to have this poll opened throughout the night and into the morning so that not only nightcrew gets to see it but morning crew too. Unless of course Fazle just gives in and makes it anyways :x:
