Rest assured we are going to be a forum were we respect members who are genuinely interested in engaging in Political discussion in Ireland and will be here to assist you in making this a interesting Political forum.
All Reddit members are welcome to our new forum.

Congratulations on the new site.


What do you offer that Boards.ie, Politicalworld.org, PoliticalIrish.com, and Irish politics.online do not already offer? I understand that P.ie has died but surely we have enough alternatives that already replace P.ie? What is it you offer?

I also think we need to know a little more about you. Who are you, who were you on P.ie and what is your hopes for this site?

Hi theking
Thank You for the best wishes
I wont be revealing who I am or who I was on Politics.ie either as it would also reveal who I am as my username is also my own name.
However I was not a big poster with an extremely large post count,but I have been a user of the forum since around 2006 on a daily basis.
This forum merely offers the same as other forums, a place for posters to engage and read content and in this case Political.
As for my hopes for the site well that would be a purely Political discussion driven forum with good posters and quality content would be the ultimate goal.
Yes there are quiet a few already and possibly there are enough as the traffic of forums is not like it was in the old days,but I dont need to compete or be as busy as other forums,I can keep this forum up no matter how busy or small it gets so I am not too concerned about that.
I always have had a desire to create a Politics.ie myself as I watched it decline and have finally done it.So really it is up to the posters going forward how good the content is and how much of it is published.I have merely just created a place for Political discussion.
I hope that helps you in your queries somewhat and Thank You for joining.

Thankyou for this reply.

Do you offer a home for those from the left, center and right of politics? Or would you prefer a certain type of poster here?

I dont want to steer the forum in anyway,hence why I chose to not fill the board up with posts and articles myself,I took a decision that it needed to be organic so that it wasn't created in a false narrative,I would rather the forum posters do that ,and in time a few moderators who in ideally would be selected bye the forum posters so that we would ultimately have a fair and balanced approach in moderation also.However Racism,Sexism or Homophobia etc. is not something that this forum intends to be a place for.It really is aimed for Political Discussion,all are welcome with different political ideology.

Good luck with your site, you'll be moderating it yourself?

I wonder though, how you define racism, sexism and homophobia? Three very topical issues where definitions are not agreed on by those on the left vs those on the right and those somewhere in the middle and even those on the left and right don't seem to agree with their own camp by times.

Do you believe e.g Graham Linehan is homophopic? Or Jordan Peterson is sexist? Or those protesting against direct provision in Rooskey are racists?

Hi ger12 welcome along.
I will be moderating it myself until we get moderators on board,I would prefer to wait until we get traffic before we bring a balanced Moderation team in,and voted in or selected bye the posters themselves,Yes the definitions are quiet hard to define and really the balance would be where discussion can still take place but without it going too far and been outright Racism,Sexism or Homophobia etc. and not Political based discussion.I wont add my own opinion to the people you mention as that would be my personal opinion which I would rather not use on the forum as that would be biased,and I would rather have non biased moderation until we get Moderators on board.Forum users should set the tone for this board and not me is what I would hope to achieve here at Politics.Irish.

Hi

Saw the message on reddit. Best of luck with the new site.

The name is very similar to other Irish forums. Could you not have come up with something a bit more original??

Thank You UptheJunction and Welcome to the forum.I actually wanted to have a .ie domain but when I seen that politics.irish was available I thought that it was fitting as it mentions politics and also shows it is Irish.I felt it would be nice to have a .ie or .irish as it is an Irish website and I have always preferred them personally over buying a .com,so really it was a personal decision for choosing the name Politics.Irish :)

Good luck with the new forum. Fear not, updates on the Massive Bronze Badger With Clockwork Moving Ears Project will be provided from time to time, which I am sure will be a huge relief to many.
