We have lolcow content on the forefront, in a separate box compared things regarding video games, media, etc. I think it would be good to have a third list for strictly political news underneath the off-topic discussion list. The order could be as follows:

Articles and News Proposed.png
This way people who would prefer non political general conversation, such as media, books, deep thoughts, etc. And those who are here mostly for Articles and News can have a dedicated section.

Deep Thoughts
Another thing I'd like to mention is how a lot of threads in Deep Thoughts are just political discussions veiled as philsophy. I think it would be better to add a new section to AN strictly for debates. Could even be called Debates. It just seems weird to me that so many people post clearly political debate topics in Deep Thoughts.

The New Content side-bar is honestly too small. This seems like a decent idea.

I don't agree with this, though. What would be the point of sharing a deep thought if not to talk about it with other people? That includes debating aspects of it.

Because basic political discussion is not philosophy. It's mostly shit-flinging before soldifying into an echo chamber.

Politics and philosophy are not mutually exclusive. The problem with Deep Thoughts has more to do with pseudointellectualism than politicization imo.
Having niche Off-Topic boards exclusively for more abstract varieties of Deep Thoughts (such as theology, metaphysics, etc) might be interesting but idk how many Kiwis would be interested, and whether there would be enough interest to justify additional boards.

You could disable all post ratings in A&N and make post "weight" zero so that posts in that section do not contribute to a user's overall post total. This in addition to not showing new topics in the box and generally keeping the board tucked away behind a login-wall.

There's definitely the post rating factor. They're an addicting mechanism, regardless of how gay that is.
