    Is this for ALL articles from the outside? Including quizzes and such?

      Sure wish we'd get more discussion of such articles. Come on, folks!

          I think it will grow slowly over time...it's a lot better than it was in the beginning, but it sure does still have a ways to go. I think as more people see that interesting and informative pieces are being posted, the discussion will grow (at least I hope...)

            I think I have gone first on a number of the threads. And they went no further than that. Me first; me last.

            Maybe it is that, with a whole article, there is not always an obvious point on which to begin discussion. I do try to initiate something, though I also would not mind if the next person came along and wanted to focus on something else from the article. Often what I start with is a question regarding something from the article that I do not understand, rather than explaining an opinion of my own. Perhaps that is not the best way to begin conversation.

            Maybe just having this section of the forums so far down the menu list, people do not get to it. After all, I do see that when articles are linked in General Discussion, they do get discussed.

              The general discussion area is definitely the most active and there are people that only go to that area, but I think this area will eventally gain a foothold. I've learned you need to be patient with these areas as people discover them and they become more popular.

                I like it being separate Jeffrey, as I always felt bad about leading people away from SA before. This way I know you & Nate've sanctioned the practice and even though it's low on the totem pole it is here for our use. So, thanks guys!!

                    I'm trying to start a new thread here with an interesting article I read, but it's not letting me - any ideas why?
