Separate forum for petitions? It seems to me like a good way to never having your posts read, which would be a shame for some of the more deserving topics. I have little faith in the value of petitions in respect of changing the world, but some certainly have discussion value. Most petitions have a time expiry, so should they be transferred to the Hole after the run-out date? Or left dormant in case of further developments? If not in a separate forum, then where to post your petition? NAAFI for greater instant readership, but open to abuse and will drop out of view after a couple of hours of non-response? Or in a niche where it's safe but isn't going to achieve the object of it being posted. Or as a multiple drop across several forums, leading to accusations of spamming? I've thrown a poll up with a few ideas. Not suggested in the poll, but possibly an idea if the technology's there, could a petition be put in a new Petition forum with the opportunity to make it visible (and respondable to) in other forums? i.e. a single thread that can appear to be in several forums, and run down the pages of those forums like a thread that originated there? PS Why do only six options come up on the poll when you've written eight?
