What communities would you start?

When the new site launches it will have a starting set of communities, which can be about any subject or about a specific way of doing things (e.g. it could be a "word games" community or it could be a general "all things go" community etc).

Just about any subject that is covered here is fair game, there will eventually be communities about everything under the sun.

I am going to make a lot of my own, but am wondering what others here would like to see, and if they have any plans to make any themselves.

@Robert Gentel,
Latin translations, pet care/pet appreciation, relationships, writing ....

Not that I can do Latin translations, but I absolutely see the need for them.

In a perfect world I would start a community called able2know, the 2 would actually be a stylized question mark, it would be just like this forum, and anyone suggesting it have a super ignore feature or threaded replies would not only be banned, they might be shot into the sun from a cannon

I am interested in authors. There are going to be a number of those by different individuals, I am sure.

I have been using and experimenting with alternative medical treatments for twenty three years. I have only delved into that for brief spells, here, because there is a lot of antagonism to wade through, as the site is now. I definitely want that. I want to invite successful people from alternative schools of thought to submit their best ideas, but not try to sell products. There would be a special emphasis on spotting frauds.

Somebody else can start the sports communities, as they are more knowledgeable.

Music. I envision a number of those by me as well as others.

I would like to start one that eventually lists every western breakfast known to man.

Or Morris Dancing.

@Robert Gentel,
Here are some I would like to see or start:

Word Games (wordgames.madlabs.com), mainly because some people like em and some people hate them, this way they can thrive with the folks who like them but those who don't can always not subscribe to this community.

Politics (politics.madlabs.com), it is a big enough a part of a2k that it deserves its own community (which would coincidentally allow a2k to be less political and more general).

News (news.madlabs.com), just for links to news as it breaks.

ConflictingViews (ConflictingViews.com), an old forum that merged into a2k, restored to be focused on debate.

Philosophy Forum (philosophyforum.com), this group will be restored to its original domain and revived as the main community for philosophy.

Water Cooler (watercooler.madlabs.com), for general chat. Not restricted to any particular subject etc.

@Lordyaswas,
I'm the bad mad woman that tagged all those threads so you, Lordy, can find them again.

I apologize for that now.

Humour, of course.

Humor would also be acceptable.

COMMUNITIES based on Pizza, cheeseburgers, movies, and perhaps Asian carps.

@Robert Gentel,
I have no faith in myself for organizing and keeping up with a community, but there are a lot of subjects I'm interested in and would likely try to add stuff to.

Books, and as Edgarb and I talked about on another thread, that could break down into a mass of individual categories.

Travel. I remember some great travel stories here from some years ago, and I think at least some people may still write travel diaries. There are also possibilities for travel information, general advice stuff (not spam promotion).

About food: this could span from matters about the pros and cons re agriculture now around the world to how to make popovers, so, again many possible sections or communities.

Poetry - not a main interest of my own but I always read JJorge and others, and there is probably a population out there that likes it a lot.

That's enough for now. More ideas piling up.

@Lordyaswas,
EZ-over.com Communities that Id be interested in

EVO_DEVO

Art techniques (sorta like pinterest bu more interactive than mere recitation)

gardening for eats

Wooden Boats

Id participate in a geology/rocks and nature community but I wouldnt volunteer to run it because I get pissed at kids wanting their homework done when they are sitting on one of the greatest open resources ever known.
