Strangely enough I do not see my reply here anymore. Hm?
I wanted to add one more comment on the idea (I think I forgot yesterday).
If you decide to create a lounge - I would love that - you will have to take into consideration the effort it takes to keep it going. I mentioned the rule of 1-9-90 and the stewarding it takes to ensure that a lounge is a vibrant environment that is acknowledge as relevant for either the very active, the somewhat active and the lurkers is demanding. You don't visit a dead forum twice.
If you have the woman power to do it, it could be great
