This is a somewhat trivial suggestion, and if no action is taken, I can't say I will be too upset. Here's what I've noticed: the "Essay" section is apparently for only "Formal essays", as it says in the fine print underneath. The thing is, people don't always look very closely and often just post whatever they consider an essay in that section. Meanwhile, someone always comments that it is in the wrong section and that it should be moved to the "nonfiction section". Moving a post is more of a hassle than it's worth, usually, so the essays usually stay where they are, wrong section or not. So to get rid of the unnecessary confusion, I suggest we do one of three things: 1) We title the section "Formal Essays" instead of just essays so that there is no confusion. 2) We broaden the section to include "Personal and Formal Essays"--this would get rid of the question of what is "formal" or "personal", because sometimes it is a little unclear, and in the process just make it a lot simpler. After all, we don't have a forum for "free verse" or something like that--we just have "poetry"; form rules over genre in the case of poetry, and, in my opinion, in the case of essays as well. 3) We add an additional section for "Personal Essays"- this is probably overkill, but it's another option, nonetheless. Like I said, this is all a tad trivial and wouldn't change much. I just think it's an easy thing to do that would make things run slightly smoother. What do you all say?
