We are shortly to create a new "Celebrity Extra" forum, which will primarily be aimed at facilitating healthy discussion/comment about celebrity gossip, news, personalities, fashion, trends, etc., and at providing a home for celebrity-related material that is not showbiz-event-driven or hot paparazzi-acquired, and that currently finds itself pushed outside the Celebrity arena because it fails to meet Celebrity Forum criteria.

The two existing celebrity forums' rules will remain essentially as they are, but we plan to rename the Celebrity Forum as Celebrity Photos. We are currently considering rules/guidelines for the new forum.

In the meantime we'd be interested to hear from you celebrity aficionados - comments/ideas?

What's the driving force behind this? Perhaps too many celeb picture threads that get hijacked for pages and pages by arguments about plastic surgery? Or maybe too many who-is-hotter or who-should-do-playboy threads in the General Forum?

I know some people dislike chatter in the picture/content threads, but it's a forum after all. It's the hot content that sparks the conversation. A bit absurd to have a thought pop into your head in one forum, but have to navigate to another forum to express yourself.

Nice idea with 2 exceptions or maybe rule for it:

1) Posters might post the same thing in both forums ("Celebrity Photos" and "Celebrity Extra") and just add a tiny comment to it in "Celebrity Extra" about her or what she is wearing for eg.

2) Posters could put the same post in "Celebrity Extra", "Celebrity Photos" and also the "Oops thread". (people are already doing the latter 2) then they could add a line of text in "Extra".

If you rule out photo's in the new forum, this could solve a lot of doubling (and then tripling), which already exists enough.

Just depends on exactly what you want in each forum.

Rather see a forum for HQ and UHQ and a forum for the rest

there`s not only ONE reason. we seem to have quiite a few threads (and likely more will follow) that don`t really "strictly" fit in the GF or/and the CF.

I'd guess there's a mess in the general forums, mostly 1 page celeb news, that could all be dumped into the "celeb news" sub-forum of the celeb section. I like it.

Could we dump the "oops" thread in there then just let it go? it's not like it will ever STOP being a pita. Oops seems like an opportunity to argue almost by definition, dump it there then whoever lives to make it out, lives.

I can't speak for all my colleagues, but I don't expect the existing celebrity forums to change character greatly following the introduction of the new forum. Apart from obviously providing a home for celebrity material that currently doesn't fit in either of those forums, it will provide a setting for wider celebrity issues than a specific photo(set) or event.

Companies don't provide Conference Rooms in order to prevent you chatting at your desk or in the corridor, or to ban watercooler moments! NEW "CELEBRITY EXTRA" FORUM (10)

That is the general idea, yes.

Oops is destined for the new forum, as well as some other photo megathreads from both the GF and CF.

We're not eliminating comments and discussion in threads in the Celebrity Photos section, that will continue as usual. But I like the idea of limiting repetitive posting between sections. There's no need for it. Oops would be an exception because that is what that thread is for, as I've explained to you in the past. I know you don't like it Smoop but it's not like everything that gets posted in the celeb forum also winds up in Oops. The actual percentage is very small.

What's the take on all the page-3 models etc? and/or lesser known celebs?

Surely they are "Celebrity Extras"

Yup. But Celeb Ex will be more like this forum where you can post youtube videos or random news stuff or gossip or Guess The Celebrity Ass (which will be moved there) and other stuff which is celebrity specific. Discussion about movies, like what's happening in the Star Wars universe, or who's banging who or whatever. That kind of stuff.

How can we discuss celeb news and fashion without pics that would be already posted in the forum. I'm confused.

They sound like topics for discussion in the Celebrity Extra forum! NEW "CELEBRITY EXTRA" FORUM (18)

PS There'll be no bar to images in the new forum, but the image forums will predominantly remain the other forums.

"The two existing celebrity forums' rules will remain essentially as they are, but we plan to rename the Celebrity Forum as Celebrity Photos. We are currently considering rules/guidelines for the new forum."

Was an assumption, and thought the new Forum was possibly for discussons etc, as per the original post in this thread.
Now it has been clarified.
