New forum?

Since we are all friends here, many of us know each other well, would any of you welcome a support type forum for daily life, problems, situations? I saw two posts today from Kyle and Bang, and many others along the way. I think there is a need for us to communicate. I wanted to put a post on here myself, but have been struggling about it because it's a food forum. So what do you all think? Admins/mods/friends?

Good idea Amber, since it's off the topic of the forum, but many folks are friendly here & need a place to vent, & it doesn't really fit under chit-chat, fun & games..

Cool

Mish sometimes we do get off topic, but I think it is fine as long as we keep it to a social thing. I also care Big body huge heart. I will chat to anyone , I have never met a stranger, ( or is that I have never met a stranger person than I. ) Huh FOOD for thought anyway if anyone wants to chat I am here :).

Maidrite, I was agreeing with Amber, in that a separate catagory was a good idea. There are many people who offer support here. Like Wasabi put it so well, it's like family; & when people are suffering, it doesn't seem to fit under the "Catagory" of jokes & games. Sometimes the written word gets lost. Hope that makes it clearer. BTW, I love getting mail too. The only mail I don't like is junk mail & bills. I'm always happy to hear from the kind people here.
