I'm not particularly attached to "forum", but I like it better than "community". Maybe we can think of a better term

I agree with the "forum isn't the best but communities isn't much better", so...oppose, perhaps?

I think it's a mistake, I see Raddle itself as the community.

And if Raddle is the community then it's made up of forums or topics or groups.

Or subraddles

If you make forums into communities then you're diluting the overall hierarchy and power of raddle itself being the actual community.

What about renaming to subraddles?

"Subraddle" sounds off. If we were still called Raddit, "Subraddit" would be perfect, but we can't use that now that we've changed our name.

What if we called them "Raddles". We could call /f/newforums /r/newraddles, and have a raddle called /r/findaraddle. How does it sound?

Could be confusing, since then you'd have to distinguish between a raddle (a forum) and the raddle (the website).

Part of me thinks f/newforums should just be absorbed by f/meta

Or f/lobby since meta isn't a featured sub.

Part of me wishes for the abolishment of featured subs :)

I think forum sounds better, and "community" is a bit too long of a word, not to mention a bit buzzword-y.

what about 'puddles' or 'pools', you know because toads hang out there, or 'knots' which apparently is a group of toads.

Knots would be a good word to describe collections of forums, like all the socialist or activist forums.

Too many people are opposed to it, so I guess it's not gonna happen unless they can be convinced otherwise.
