- Crows nest
If any new thread on any single aspect of Amarna is started in isolation, then it will sink. While unwieldy, and admittedly not user friendly to the casual visitor, everything so far is in one place, and as everything is connected, so discussion of one aspect does lead to discussion of another. This looks OT, but really isn't. This is not to say that this thread should continue, as clearly it will not, but to point out, again, that as it is all connected, then any new threads should not be "out there" amongst other, and unrelated topics, but within at least an Amarna, if not Egypt, subforum. This way threads on specific topics, such as the sculptor Thutmose, can be dealt with in detail without the need to digress, as it it within a subforum where it can all be connected anyway, and not separated from the totality of Amarna by threads about Alexander the Great or brothels in Pompeii, both interesting and worthy topics of course, but simply chaff obscuring Amarna threads. Yes, I now hear calls for separate subforums for everybodies pet subjects, and that won't happen, but Amarna is just a wee bit different.
