I realise that 2020 has been a difficult year for all of us, and Covid-19 has been a hot topic issue for a long time, so I completely understand why it was created and is used.
However, I was wondering - would it be possible to discuss the merits of moving the Covid-19 category further down the forum categories listing?
Each time I click back to the forums homepage, that’s the first category I see. It’s a bit depressing to be endlessly reminded about a disease which has caused so much upheaval, especially when I visit here to discuss improving my health.
But more than that, if you’re new to keto and you register, that’s the first forum in the list - and the most divisive. I’m not interested in rehashing any Covid-19 discussions here, but although the topics in that category do have relevance to the real world and might be of interest to keto-ers, I wonder if the community might be better served if the forum listing was lower down?
I’m guessing from the structure, that the old top category used to be ‘Newbies’ - which certainly makes the most sense, especially for those navigating who may have just registered and might not be used to forums.
It’s not that I think we should do away with the category - I think it’s entirely reasonable that people have opportunity to discuss the disease, particularly for health reasons, but it might be nice for it not to be front-and-centre for a while?
After all, keto and its variations are why we’re all here, and it might be nicer to see something more positive and friendly as the first thing that a new user sees on their journey into keto.
