Existing users and regular visitors to the Deep Politics Forum will have become accustomed to a fairly standard discussion forum site with a few static pages, linked to Book lists, video lists and a YouTube Channel.
The Original forum remains in pretty much the same format as it has always been - albeit with the latest release of the original forum software.
What you are reading now is an introduction to considerably expanded site functionality in the form of a full-featured publishing suit.
The Idea is that DPF will facilitate publication of articles and other material that fit the overall site purpose and editorial guidelines and enable simple auto-linking between such publications and the regular discussion forum.
The software also enables DPF to provide personal blogging facilities to users and you are invited to experiment.
There is no intention to charge for any of these facilities, but users are required to accept a standard set of terms and conditions of use - yet to be fully defined but in accordance with both the spirit and letter of the Forum Rules.
