I feel like there should be a "(Latest) News" category

I think there should be a “(Latest) News” category. Non-political news is often shared in MPSIMS, but I often don’t feel like that stuff is mundane or pointless.


“Mundane” and “pointless” are to be taken seriously but not literally.

Moved to ATMB as this is about the SDMB and not Discourse.

This comes up a lot over the years. MPSIMS is basically a catch-all.

The use of the Breaking-News tag works well as a sub-forum. We encourage posters to use the tag for breaking news in MPSIMS.

Currently 32 threads have the tag.

Well said.
