Is it possible for Fried Chicken and Save Me subforums to be a part of this board?

I'd think the answer to that is probably no.

Too many forums that have nothing to do with the purpose of the board, becomes like wool on sheep. Ten years down the road, there becomes a lot more wool than sheep, and the whole thing becomes difficult to contain, or maintain.

It was most likely stripped back to what it currently is, for that reason.

I see. I think those two subforums were an important part of QOL. Maybe that's just me.

I'm sure there are a million and one forums out there that are much better qualified in the umbrella covered by those topics, than a forum dedicated to a rock band, or am I wrong there?

Agreed with Kes. There are plenty of social platforms for those discussions

I understand that about Save Me, I really do, even though I may have used it more than anyone else. I did that because I felt like I trusted the people here, and gave great advice. Yes, very important, but I do understand.
Fried Chicken though, where a person could talk about almost anything, have a bit of fun etc. I think that was a great and in its way important part of QOL as well. It seems odd without it, so is that kind of thing allowed now, or is it just to be all about Queen from now on? I'm confused, sorry if this is coming across as hostile, it's not meant that way.

I think splitting things out between the Songs and the Albums, and then four forums for each Queen member is just asking for too much granularity tbh... but what do I know? :lol:

A Non Queen section is needed so that we can keep the place alive. I have long maintained that all of this Queen talk over the years has actually lessened my love of the band. I honestly couldn't care less what your favourite album is...no honestly. :)

Use Another World for the fried chicken type topics. Simples.
