A lot of forums have a board for both science and tech, not just tech. There are topics such as the Messenger probe, Comet Holmes, and others that would fare well on a board for the discussion of both S&T.

I will include "Science" as one of the choices in a poll about creating new forums. If it gets enough support, we can discuss whether it should be added to "Technology" or become a separate forum.

If created as a separate forum, would weather then become a sub-forum? Things like astronomy would be good topics for a science forum, but they are now being addressed in the hobbies and recreation forum. In general, Sports could be considered a form of recreation, but it has it's own forum. Having separate forums for so many topics just leads me to one question: How and where do you draw the line between forums?

Yeap i see the Science Vote is not doing to well in the poll

I still think it could be added to the Technology forum as most of the current postings are usually about Computers where as maybe adding Science to the name then we can expand on the postings there like Nanotechnology, Stem Cells, Alternative Energies, Space Travel and Robotics etc..etc...

Yes, I agree. If Science doesn't get enough votes, I will add it to the Technology forum.

Just wondering if the Admin knows the Sience and Tech forums are down?? It won't allow for me to enter on just those threads.

6/3

Not anymore, it's been fixed.

In the future, it would be best to DM a moderator to ensure a quicker response.
