Yeah. It's been moved to a dedicated URL, and is now called ArmedPoliteSociety (APS). The URL is in a link at the top of the forum.

Thought about, tried it. It didn't work. APS is the next best thing.

Check this sticky (http://www.thehighroad.org/showthread.php?t=350166).

Do a search on "Roundtable" in this forum.

Could we get one what in vbulletin? Vbulletin is simply the underlying software of this (and many) boards; the content is our choice not vbulletin's.

If you're asking if we could port a website like APS to vbulletin, certainly. Are we going to? You would have to ask Oleg and Derek about that, but I would venture to say "no". You and anyone else is perfectly free to create a bulletin board based on vbulletin or any other hosting sw that is an "off-topic" board.

well, vBulletin isn't free, so the odds of that happening are slim.

It's not like we're pulling in advertising revenue or anything...

Addressed in the FAQ posted above.

Is it wrong of me to post?

Anyway I think all the asking for a General Area is the fact that arfcom has one, and while I enjoy "what is you favorite band,team,cheese" poll's and people going on tangents about Walmart and movies, as much as the next person that would not meld here very well, that and the mods would have a nightmare of a time with it.
