Against Open Threads

Ah, you're right about meetups. It happened (24 days ago).

Against Open Threads

The clearest way to improve discussions here, which has been called for numerous times, is reorganizing the subreddits and adding a few new ones. So far we haven't even got a separate subreddit for meetups, which should be uncontroversial, although I hear it is under development. Despite the simplicity of this proposed change, apparently the codebase makes it difficult. How much would it cost to expedite the development, if that's a possibility, and could we let people donate money directly toward this feature? If it's too expensive, how about cheap alternative approaches, such as adding a menu with links to a handful of "top-level" tags, at least one of which every new post should be tagged with? .
