Why is there no forum for (insert field here)?

Recommended Posts

Inventors Forum, Forum that allows for user to create write down and discuss invention ideas.

 

 

Again, supply and demand. The people that show up here discussing an invention are usually very coy about details because they're afraid someone will steal their idea. Often that's overblown because they have a fundamental flaw in their understanding of the science. Another issue would be whether the discussion counts as prior art for patent purposes. I have no idea what the answer to that is.

 

The result is that there isn't much call for it. You can e.g. discuss mechanical or electronic details in physics or engineering.

I don't know if it belongs on this forum but perhaps it would be handy if there is a (sub)forum where you can post science related blogs or websites. The promoting of products should still be forbidden.

And maybe under the 'Earth science', you can make a sub-forum called 'Global Warming'.

Climate science covers global warming, IMO: http://www.scienceforums.net/forum/105-climate-science/

You could also always post info from a blog or science site in Science News: http://www.scienceforums.net/forum/100-science-news/

Promoting of personal web sites is also forbidden. We do have posts that have links such as you describe. A quick glance shows one in math and one in chemistry, and one for science youtube channels.
