I think it's wonderful that y'all want to have a spot for off-topic discussion, but your (frankly obscene) number of discussion posts are quickly clogging up the Fan Post section. It takes a bit more scrolling down the page, but you can still find them just fine:
EDSBS (a wonderful SB Nation college football blog) leads by example here. Here is their Fan Post section:
Here is their Fan Shot section:
Fan Posts are meant to be community driven articles/ruminations/odes to our most beloved athletes. Fan Shots are meant to be a quick link/image/quote for which you can still use the comment section to its fullest potential. As y'all are just looking for a place to have discussion, Fan Shots are the best avenue for you to do so.
Apologies if I come across as a bit crotchety. As someone who does make Fan Posts of questionable quality from time to time, I'd rather they stay visible for a period than get drowned under a deluge of discussion threads. Just my two cents.
