Title: What is the News Forum? What can be posted here?
Post by: Kobuk on April 02, 2012, 09:41:29 pm
After much discussion by staff as well as regular members, The Furtopian Staff have voted to add a News Forum for the discussion of national and international world current events.
What makes this forum different from the General Non-furry Discussion forum or the Debate Forum is the following as quoted from member Storm Fox from this thread here:

If a member is ever unsure of what kind of news topic can be posted here, then please PM a staff person and we can help answer any questions you have on where it should be properly located. :)

While news can be considered a form of general discussion, a news thread would be more specifically about current events.
Such as specific stories where the topic is based around a legitimate story or writing of what, as far as we know is considered fact.

Some examples…
