    In an attempt to get more people chatting and interacting on the boards, we have decided to do a bit of shuffling/combining of boards starting March 2019.

    The current "Main Board" is pretty vague and people are never sure what to post here. To make it clearer, we are going to split it into two boards: "Fat in the Media" and "Daily Living".

    The "Fat in the Media" board will be for any social, academic, etc mentions of fat people and discussion about that (which is a large function of the Main Board!). Threads for other topics can go in the "Daily Living" board, which will combine the Lounge, Fashion and Foodee boards for general talk, fat-related or not.

    Hopefully this will make things clearer for people and encourage more posting.

    Thanks, Loopy and all the moderators, for all the work behind making these changes. It all sounds like a good plan to me.

    Now people: go make some new threads on these re-arranged boards!

    "Attached" to the "Weight Board" used to be a subdirectory (or sub-forum) entitled "Weight Gain". Has this subdirectory been discontinued, consolidated with its parent, or moved elsewhere? If the last of these, where can one find it now?

    It has been merged with the main Weight Board.

    Now the model boards - the most popular forums are private so no one can get in - yea that sounds great.

    It's as simple as asking to be let in, you are let in, and case closed. You're welcome.

    Two questions.

    1. Does "media" also encompass entertainment media like movies, TV, etc? And if so...
    2. Does it apply to older forms of entertainment, could I do, for instance, a thread about the history of fat people in a specific type of entertainment over a 30+ year period?

    Thanks in advance.
