    Just making a suggestion to see what the thoughts are. Would it be a good idea to create a temporary "COVID-19 Discussions" sub-forum inside Happy Hour to corral all the many discussions going on about it? It has kind of taken over the Happy Hour forum, and one person has already expressed a need to temporarily ignore all of them so they can take a mental health break from all of it. Putting them all into a sub-forum would (hopefully) encourage more people to engage in discussion about other topics but COVID-19, and those who need to step away from those discussions could more easily do so by ignoring the sub-forum (or just not going in.)

    I've had the same thought.

    I completely agree. And I’m one of those people who is struggling with anxiety and really needs to step away from it and regain some normalcy occasionally.

    Add me to the list of those who's anxiety levels are maxed out.

    Let me know if I missed any threads.

    Wow, looking in the subforum, I had no idea there were that many threads! I only follow three (I think the three most prolific). This subforum is better, as now now all things have to go in the one or two main threads.

    I spend way too much time surfing various national news sites, all the local news sites (tv stations and newspaper), etc.

    EDIT - it's showing up now. Never mind.



    I am using tapatalk on my android phone and I am unable to see the new sub forum and if I click on a direct link provided by someone else, I receive the message that I don't have enough permission to access that feature.

    Advice?

    And it's seamless in Tapatalk. I came here to vote Yes without realizing it had already been done. All the threads I'd posted in loaded fine.
