Ok no problem Nolin - whatever you think - you're the expert/ this is your baby!
Thanks for the question, Terry. We previously had all new discussions posting to the main activity feed. It soon became cluttered with people posting all sorts of self-promotional spammy threads just to get visibility before moderators could delete them.
