I'd like to see a "General Discussions" category on the forums. I recently re-read Daze in the Valley and was thinking of asking about recommendations to porn like the porn in the story. Where do I post this? Story recommendations? I'd be asking for recommendations, but not for a story here on SOL. Story discussions? It'd be related to Daze in the Valley but it wouldn't be a thread discussing the story. If there was a category where you could talk about whatever, I think that'd be a good place for a thread like that.
People also want to talk about whatever. Just look through the recommendations threads. In the threads with 50+ replies, I guarantee you that it's not 50+ recommendations for what the OP was asking for, but a derailed discussion about something someone mentioned in one reply. With a kind of "General Discussions" forum, it will provide a place for people to talk about what's on their mind, and it would help keep posts in the other categories on topic.
