"We are the Goon Squad and we're coming to town...Beep! Beep!" - David Bowie, "Fashion"

Am I doing something dumb, or is that just a coding thing that no one has had time to deal with yet?

I think it's the latter. The side bars display whether you subscribe or not, I think. Bureau-blah-blah 3 needs to be archived or moved to closed threads before it goes away (I think).

Ah! Okay, thanks. Just making sure it wasn't me.

I don't know if there's a queue of proposals, but since I just saw a casting spoiler for House, it occurred to me that it might be a good time to float the idea of a Network Drama bucket thread before the gathered populace.

I'm for it, but are we still too early? Is discussing it now before premieres start nipping at our heels a good idea? Non-Fiction seems to be doing well.

We have to wait for the other proposal to be settled, Connie to propose something else.

Also, FTR, I am game to have the book club opened for Pottermania.

Sometimes I trip on how happy we could be.

Oh yeah, I'd love the HP stuff to go into the book club thread.

Woe to the fucking wicked.

Add my bull.

I think that there isn't anything else that's been waiting for an open, so you'd not be cutting in line to go next, Connie.

I agree with the cowgirl.

"Look, son, if it's good enough for Shirley Bassey, it's good enough for you."

Stompies? Can we just reopen the book thread then? I think we have a full on consense.

Can we open it today?

What else besides ramen can you scoop? YOU CAN SCOOP THIS WORLD FROM DARKNESS!

Why? I think pre-book discussion has been co-existing fine with other discussion in Literary, so far.

S to the A -- using they/them pronouns!

Well, since we've bullshit consensed on a decision, I see no reason why not to implement that decision immediately. Especially since it's been asked for multiple times from the Stompies at this point.
