    We have just reorganised the forums a bit and now we need your help to come up with great taglines for the various forums.

    We need them to be quite short so that the text won't wrap when viewing the forum with a 1024 resolution (the one currently listed with the Fantasy forum is sort of using the maximum length).

    So be creative and win fame and glory :).

    Just curious, what's happening with the taglines? Will they be left the same for a while until there is more response to this thread? Are they still going to be changed?

    "Hell Yeah!"


    But seriously.

    Tag lines?

    What's wrong with calling stuff what it is?

    Or are the forums going to have their original titles in brackets whispering alongside the taglines, so new members have a clue of what's going on?

    Comparative Imagination 101 (Fantasy)


    Deconstructing the Future (Science Fiction)


    What about the author forums.

    How about;

    Interesting, Kahn, they could work well, and I like the idea of putting the genre in brackets. This thread isn't getting much attention though.... :eek:

    It's wild that with all the creative minds around this place no one is coming up with any replies.

    I would say that for Fantasy, just post the What is Fantasy? thread from the Fantasy Forum in it's entirety. Just so everyone is sure of exactly what they are getting into. ;)
