it's not too bad... after all, aren't you and i discussing Senate-things in this particular thread ?
This forum will be about the Senate in general, yes.. People can express views, bring things to Senators' attention and respond to official Senate-statements.
The closed-off room in this forum, that will be made, is for Senators only and will mainly serve as the debate-ground in official meetings.
This weekend will see the first one. If that room is put up these coming days. I already contacted Chris on that.
