As many of you who know me personally or have been with TreasureWorks for a long time know that we have always steered away from the subjects of Politics and Religion being discussed on our FORUMs unless it directly related to treasure hunting.

When I designed TreasureWorks FORUMS back in 2010, I made the conscious decision not to include these subjects anywhere in our plan. The primary reason was due to the many issues and problems I encountered during my many years as a Moderator over on the TreasureNet website. Occasionally, these subjects would spill out into other sections of the Forum.

My old friend Marc Austin (the previous owner and founder of T-Net), always argued that while these subjects were problematic for the Moderators and occasionally led to the banning of some members. Having a Politics and Religion section on the Forum drove lots of traffic to the site, and increased revenue the bottom line.

I have been considering adding a Politics Section to the FORUMS for some time. However, I would like to hear some feedback from our members before I make a final decision on this matter. You can respond with a Yes or No, but I would also be interested in hearing your reasoning. If you wish you may also email me This email address is being protected from spambots.

Thanks in advance for sharing your opinion on this matter.

Considering the impact the current political environment has, both in our lives and directly involving our passion for treasure hunting, it can't be ignored. Go for it!

B) Try it Tommy. You can always cancel it if it becomes to radical or problematic. You can't say it didn't or wouldn't help the bottom line if you don't give it a try. I want to see your site become the biggest on the web and for that you need the income advertising will generate. More members and interest increases the advertising income.
