    Hello everyone...thank you for all of your input on this topic. I'm sorry, but we can't get the needed votes to push this through. I realize the Politics sub-forum had nothing to do with college and was not of much value to most people, but we had to create that as a way to keep the rest of the forums clean and unpolluted. Because we are speaking about a Cafe it is already assumed the topics will be widespread, so further dividing them out could begin a domino effect (if you separate out caring for aging parents, what about dealing with an empty nest, or purchasing a new house?). Our mods are already stretched thin, so adding more and more 'real estate' to the community would place even further burden on them.

    We greatly appreciate your contributions to our community and admire your dedication to your parents. You can certainly continue discussions on this topic, but we just are not able to accommodate this request for a new sub-forum. We hope you will understand.

    Thank you again, Lenitus, for the thought which you and all the mods put into considering this for us. We appreciate it.

    I appreciate what you and the mods do for us. Thank you again for considering this topic as a sub forum.
    Who knows, maybe the future will bring about change and the opportunity for this to be considered.

    Have a great day.
