I don't get it. Where is the relationship between the war in Iraq and web design?

I'm suggesting that a new subforum/section should be introduced for current international issues. Webmasterworld has professional members & its membership will be highest if people can discuss international issues

WebmasterWorld serves an international community of people from several different countries, religions and cultures. Allowing political or religious discussions could harm seriously the feeling of one large webmaster community.

Thanks, but that would be a major departure from our mission.
This site is a service to the web site administrator community. We are here for WebmasterWorld members to discuss the process of doing business on the internet. Running a website takes a great deal of knowledge. The design, coding, maintenance, promotion, marketing, and management of a website is almost an impossible task for one person alone without extensive training. We are here as a forum for the members to share and gain knowledge in operating and promoting a website. Think of us as part of your extended site development and process team.
I'm sure there are plenty of other sites where the subject you suggest would be on topic. ;)

Advertisement revenues will increase if you carefully select international issues such as "USA civilian nuclear transfer to developing countries" & other intellectual topics, they will be an asset. Webmasterworld can diversify as most popular forum for international issues.

And loose everything that's good about it - a specific forum for webmasters to discuss webmaster issues and technologies without politics!

Do I detect a hidden agenda here?

/me looks around for the current advertisements and gets bored at not being able to find any, goes and grabs a coke and is glad she doesn't know the political feelings of her WebmasterWorld comrades. ;-)

forex, you may wish to read the mission statement [webmasterworld.com] in full. ;)
Note the entry: "We do not accept advertising at this time."

I don't want to lose one of the last places in my world that's free of politics. Please, Brett, keep thinking inside the box on this one.

Don't worry, it is not going to happen.

Final decision is yours. International issues change the world. CNN, BBC have international recognition since they display world information.
Webmasterworld can make use of its popularity & diversify into a international issues forum

I can develop an international issues forum for my website but do not have time to manage it. The suggestion is forwarded to webmasterworld, if it is considered beneficial, the decision is yours.

|... but do not have time to manage it. |
That's fine then. Just ask Brett to do it for you. I am sure he has plenty of spare time ;)

Ads? Politics? Just the kind of things Webmasterworld tries to avoid.
I am sure there are plenty of other forums for you to discuss political issues in.
| 1:37 pm on Mar 15, 2006 (gmt 0)|
forex, one more time, just so I can make this clear to you.
WebmasterWorld is a Webmastering forum.
We just don't do politics, and never will.
Thanks for your suggestion.
