We can then say in the description it would include petitions and information about causes?
The thing is, most of the petitions you sign online require you to sign up as a member for the site it's hosted on. You would all be okay with signing up to sites such as that? I am signed up for a few of them myself =p I get constant emails about causes, so I suppose I can share many with you all.
If you feel strongly about them.
I have never seen such a board on any forum, we shall have to see how it develops and manage it appropriately.

Each year I donate money to The Special Olympics, Breast Cancer Research, Make A Wish (for little ones that are terminally ill), Homeless Veterans, etc. I consider them all to be worthwhile causes. I think that this would be a very cool thread!

Good point. But, then you would have to contract it so it doesn't take up as much space as it does currently. I'm OK with the way it is now; members know where to find it. Awwww . . . I have to go because a penguin just appeared on top of my computer!
Cherry, do you have something else in mind? If not we can stick with Worthwhile Causes.
But now we need to focus on the description. I do want it to be detailed so there is no confusion about the purpose. I agree I do not want it to involve donations.
As for the chat... The focus of the site is the forum, so having the chat at the top might put off some people, whereas having it at the bottom doesn't bother anyone; that is one of the only downsides I can think of to having it at the top I guess (aside from the shout box being bulky, but I can't do too much about that). Most women didn't use it when we had it at the old forum, and it was at the top. I guess it's not something people care about, but they still like that it's there if they wanted to use it lol I think I might fall into that group a little =p

So, I am having issues with lag now any time I use the forum for an extended period of time. It also crashes my browser. I didn't notice it until I installed some of the newer plugins (one of which includes the chat being on the side) =/
Yep.. I just wonder which plugin is the culprit. Or if it's a combination! I suppose if nobody else has this issue yet I will not do anything, but if others start to report similar issues, then I will investigate to find out which one it is ^_^
For now.. I am just going to close out the forum every now and then before it lags my browser too much lol
So, now I noticed my flash player is using a lot of CPU, and it crashes a lot (usually around the same time my browser crashes, too), but this time I forced it to stop working, and the ads went blank. Maybe it's the ads lagging me then... because my flash is outdated lol
