New sub-forum suggestion: Humour

Post by Libs_Books » 22 Apr 2018, 15:10

I was wondering whether it would be a good idea, in the 'Reviews and Discussions about Specific Books and Series ' forum section, to have a sub-forum for Humor/Humour.

I also wanted to ask if it's possible to create shortcut links within forums so that books that sit across two or more genres can be linked to in each relevant sub-forum? For example, a historical fiction book aimed at older children might also be a crime/thriller or be humorous. Another example might be a sci-fi fantasy book that includes time travel, might have a historical fiction element. And where do all those historical revision ('What would have happened if...?') novels get put?

These are great suggestions. Hopefully someone with good programming skills can make this happen.

I don't know if it's just me that can't find it, but just a general ability to link things would be nice (without the full address being displayed). But loved your suggestion!

Love the humour sub-forum idea. I would live in that category :)
Great suggestions.
