Welcome to the Sports and Popular Culture forum, the purpose of which is to facilitate good-natured discussion between members of the Sistertrek community on topics relating to all sports and the breadth of what is known as ‘Popular Culture’. The forum will be moderated by the duo of STC and gdog243.
Specifically, we suggest this forum should include, but is by no means restricted to:
Sports - all across the globe played at all levels, from world championship competitions to domestic leagues to local amateur events
Movies – from Hollywood blockbusters to foreign language films
TV & General Media – Soaps, series, personalities, celebrity gossip, it’s all welcome.
Theatre & the arts – Broadway & West-End shows, cutting edge productions... or perhaps you want to discuss the Turner prize... bring it here
Music – top of the charts popular music, cutting edge techno/dance, whatever you’re into
Fashion – the latest styles or retro? Talk about them all here.
Hobbies and Recreation - something interesting that you do in your spare time that fits the general theme of this forum. Tell us about it.
We as moderators are really pretty open as to what is posted here but one specific request, please think carefully before you post anything that is Trek or Sci-Fi related. We already have forums for Trek, Sci-fi shows and books etc. This is not to say that we can never post sci-fi here, but take care to ensure what you are posting really belongs in popular culture rather than in a specialist forum.
Some other general guidelines:
Please remember that we, the Sistertrek community, are fairly far-flung across the globe. While the content of this forum will inevitably be down to what people choose it to be, please show respect to the topics started by those of us from less populated or represented parts of the world. Give careful thought as to whether you really need to start a brand new thread on a topic when your post might be as well placed in an existing thread. Moderators will use their discretion to bump topics which are of interest to some but have been forced down the board by the majority. Diversity of culture is the aim here.
This is a nice forum. While friendly debate and banter is welcome, don’t go attacking other people’s sports, cultures, tastes etc. This forum should be about sharing, learning, pleasure, and analysis. Trolling, Flaming, Baiting, Personal Attacks and the promotion of cultural, personal or political agenda’s do not belong here and will be dealt with, as will racism, sexism or any other form of bigotry or prejudice.
Finally, this forum is for you and, as far as possible, we’d like the community to take ownership of it. Please let us know what you want here, if there are any topics you’d like to be pinned etc. on the Suggestions Thread.
Thanks and enjoy the forum.
Edit on 08.11.07 to add the words 'Trolling, Flaming, Baiting...' directly before 'Personal Attacks' in the penultimate large paragraph.

Many thanks to HistoryDude for setting this up and for giving myself and gdog243 the opportunity to contribute to the running of Sistertrek here
If there are any changes to our guidelines, which like anything will be an evolving document, we'll make clear to you what we did and when we did it.
