Default Possible S:1889 discussion subforum?

It appears that we will now have at least two Space: 1889 games running in PbP/PbF for awhile. I notice that a lot of our discussion in the campaign threads could really be considered as about S:1889 generally, not just in these particular campaigns. (Ex: I posted the character sheet PDF, which would be of general interest, but felt compelled to post in threads for both campaigns to make sure no one would miss it.)

I guess this is primarily a question for Aramis, although I am interested in what the rest of y'all think as well.

1) Do you agree that there is enough interest in this game among forum members to justify a subforum for discussion, or should we just take it to "Non-Traveller Gaming"?

2) Although originally published by GDW and having many Traveller-like features, Space: 1889 has never actually been a Traveller game, not even in name only as 2300AD was when first published. Where would be an appropriate place in the forum heirarchy to put an 1889 subforum?

Marc doesn't have the license, so for now, no subforum. This isn't, after all, a general gaming site.

In the PBP, any GDW or Traveller game is acceptable.

I agree with aramis. If CotI starts down that road we'll start having sub-forums for Risk and Shoots and Ladders.

I am enjoying Space 1889 in and of itself but fear the precedent.

OK, so any general S:1889 threads (useful to both campaigns) should go here in Non-Traveller Gaming?
