Surprise!!!!

Basically, the previous subforum structure was fine 12 years ago when SC had a lot more traffic. But now there isn't nearly enough activity to justify 45 subforums (literally). The old sections also had a lot of overlap, and some sections were completely inactive.

Merging forums like this does not help people who go to a particular place to look for a thread they saw a few years ago. Activity may have decreased but this place could remain a repository for those who search for information within certain categories.

Edit:

Is there any way to find which section a thread belonged to?

Anyhow perhaps this will make for a better forum.

I'm lost. Can we get a pinned post mapping which forums went where?

The description underneath each subforum title should help you with that. When work is done, I can do that though if you want.

There's still some cleanup to be done.

:dry: I'm sure we will all be able to figure it out. I just don't like change. I don't even like when people I see regularly get a haircut. It's just different from what I'm used to.

It had to be done. This was long overdue.

May Allah reward the admins and whoever was involved in planning and executing this. We are the only active shia forum online.

The survival and health of this forum in representing muhammed wa ale muhammed [asws] on the medium of the internet and providing a medium for shia's [and non-shia's] is of great importance.

Having been on a number of islamic forums [mainly sunni ones] this is definitely the best one there.

Science and technology impacts society, but it's definitely not a society issue! Everything that matters impacts society! Jurisprudence and Islamic History fit in a Society subforum as well as science does.

Streamlining is great, sure, efficient. Needs some adjustment.

Adjustment 1: put the poetry forum back. Why on earth would it be nuked? Makes no sense. It was always a slow burner in terms of content from way back even in the early 2000s.

Tip: if you've posted in a forum that used to exist, you can find it in its new location through your profile. That's how I found the science forum in society.

Tweak to streamlining: I suggest a forum which includes "academic" subjects like sciences, literature, art, philosophy, poetry, and other subjects that draw more serious but less prolific posters. Thinker's Discourse and/or moderated debates could be housed there too. Maybe call it "education" or "arts and sciences".

    • I think it's important to give a gap between kids. I read somewhere that first two years are very important. Kids, who are abused or are neglected during first two years of life are less intelligent. These days we read so many news of mothers killing their own kids. I don't think they are criminals or murderers, I think they are just pressured into having kids and they don't receive any help, so they get stressed out or frustrated. It's hard for me to function if I don't get enough sleep for a day or two. Not getting enough sleep for months or years can drive you crazy. You are more likely to do a better job if you are able to spend more time on each kid.  I am not saying this about OP. I have seen a lot of people who are so loving towards kids but they are cruel with adults. It's crazy because if you are being mean to a kid's mother, it will have some effect on that kid, so you are hurting the kid. But some people become so kind when they are dealing with kids but they don't forgive the slightest weakness in the mother. At the end of the day, that kid will go home with the mother and she may take her frustration out on the kid intentionally or unintentionally. 
    • See, I'm not at all favouring akhbariyat but the comparison between Akhbaris and sunnis is clear cut. I'll be keeping a mile of distance from those who follow the one who oppressed Ahlulbait (ams). While what Akhbari says about those who do not recite shahadat e Salesa is not false but I have met hardcore WFers who says those who do not believe in wilayat-e-Faqih of Ayatullah Khamenei is not Shia. Problem is on both the sides. La'an is a part of tabarrah and the way of Ahlulbait (ams). This is a topic for some other day, some other thread. This has happened and is still happening. You are very naive or acting like one. No one's making anything. Stay some more time on SC and you'll yourself get to know those Shias of Mars. Why not consider same things for other Shia subsects. So you are uniting with sunnis because they are in majority. Interesting!. Gathering a vast number to fight enemies, Really? What have you learnt from Badr, Ohad.. Karbala? I'm not telling you to unite with Akhbaris or sunnis but if you want to united with anyone then subsects of shias are far better to get united than a sunni. I'm done. You can continue with polemics.
    • Modern Day Fake Akhbariyat.  Those who are enemies of Ulemas.   
    • Do you want me to unite with these kind of Akhbaris??  
    • I have tried to make the English translation of thus Salawat and approximate translation is given below: “Allah swt send blessing upon Muhammad and his family, In the name of Allah swt most beneficent and most merciful Allah swt bless Muhammad saaw as sent inspirations and conveyed the messages (to him), and Allah swt bless Muhammad saaw as made lawful things halal, made unlawful things as haram, and  gave the knowledge of the book (to him), Allah swt bless Muhammad saaw as (he) established the prayer, paid the zakat  and  invited to the religion, and Allah swt bless Muhammad saaw by fulfilling the promise, have mercy on him, and Allah swt bless Muhammad saaw by forgiving, covering and relieving the discomforts, Allah swt bless Muhammad saaw like removed misery, revealed the cloud, accepted the prayers, saved him from the peole, and Allah swt bless Muhammad saaw like have mercy on servants, giveth life to land, break the oppressor, destroy the pharaoh (and his people), and Allah swt bless Muhammad saaw like make wealthy in poverty, make successful against horrors, break the idols, and have mercy on mankind Allah swt bless Muhammad saaw as send with the best of religion, raise with belief, by rejecting the others, and the greatness of the sacred house (Kaaba), Allah swt bless Muhammad saaw and his purified chosen family and salutation on them.  Allah swt send blessing upon Muhammad and his family,”.   Wasalam  (Some SC member  may also  improve it by further inputs)
