So I'm not sure if this already exists, but it would be great if there was a thread where people could discus and talk about the latest global (breaking/or non-breaking) news. News like today's shooting in the US, or Russia deciding to send forces to Syria, the east coast of the USA preparing for a hurricane, oil prices going down or a terrorist attack somewhere. Basically things like that. 

 

The reason why I'm requesting this is because some times I feel the need to talk about these matters with an international community to see the different views arround the world. And since OM is pretty much the biggest international community I currently am part of, I thought it would be the perfect place.

 

Anyways, is it an option? Would people be interested in this? If so, then could a mod perhaps create one and add some guidelines or rules? I have no idea how to create an official thread like that.   

 

If a thread like this already exists then just guide me to it and ignore this request.  

 

Cheers

I second this idea.

 

I remember there's a News Thread in Debate subforum (then moved to GCC) around Q1-Q2 last year (2014). Either it's @NanaoChan or @gametaka who made (and posted in) the thread, can't remember well.

 

If this gets approved, I can contribute on posting news concerning the latest situations in the ASEAN region as well as in the South China Sea (SCS), as the geopolitics in those areas involve (mainly economic) interests of China, USA, and the Asia-Pacific nations, which, might be interesting to follow--especially since ASEAN Economic Community (AEC) will be effective come this year's end (December 2015), and, the implementation of which, would surely affect the geopolitical dynamics of the 10 ASEAN countries (as well as US and China, especially concerning business/trades/economics).

I'm fine with a general world news thread in the GCC forum, or do one for regions since we have a fairly wide userbase - US, UK, AUS/JPAC - or however you want to divide the regions up.  

 

Just remember that the thread(s) are for discussing news and not debating things, so keep it civil and polite.

Making a global thread is better I think since the thread will get more attention that way. With certain regional news people all across the world are usually interested, no matter their origins. Like yesterday's shooting in the USA for example. I myself am from Europe but it was still big news over here. 

 

YoWid do you mind opening one? I think you have more experience with opening threads here on OM than me. ^^

Oh! So we can discuss things and not just post. Awesome! Should we have a separate thread for discussing news though? One for the actual news stories. The other for discussing said news. It would seem cleaner and less cluttered.

It's legitimately amazing how ingrained a sense of organization has become here.

All credits to YoWid. He made it look awesome. He put quite a bit of effort in the idea. I should be ashamed. xD

Seeing as Greg and Rhyssa has seemed to give its blessing, I'll let @YoWid put up the thread as he sees fit. It is his brainchild after all.

Initially I thought the posters can be redirected to debate subforum, but a thread exclusively for news discussion in GCC would be nooice.

Legitly.

So our child is a bit...'special', and now you're disowning her??? some parent you are :angry:

Youre forgetting mai hasubando @tattaslayr who sired this gifted child? He might be a "well done, son" guy when it comes to fatherhood, yet still.

Hmph, how rude.
