    I know a lot of people on here, but I'm not sure I know the right people to ask this question:

    Can we get a new section in the books category for Twilight? I promise there's enough of us (or at least enough of me) to make it active!

    I certainly agree. There are not only a lot of people on here that read it, but a lot of active members who do.

    My vote is yes, if it's put to a vote :D

    Might as well, it's on by to-read list and they do seem to be the kind of books that get people talking. Another yes vote here!

    But where do you stop? It's hardly an epic, even if popular.

    I am sort of willing to side with Elladan on this one. Its certainly a popular series at the moment, but does it have the staying power of others? It does not have to be epic fantasy but some staying power I think is needed.
    We have a lot of sections already (and a lot of dead areas and cobwebs ;)) and I think before we add more we want to be certain that they are going to last

    Perhaps it should go in the fantasy worlds section as those currently included have also got film franchises to go with the book series? Personally I don't think the books are that strong and it's only really the film which bumps it up the fantasy leaderboard. It's similar to Narnia ~ would Narnia have it's own section (books) if not for the films?

    I guess when you put it that way, you guys may be right. Maybe it's not going to last very long.

    On the other hand, if they make all four movies, that's going to take at least four years.

    Personally, I find Twilight to be rather lame. However, it certainly has enough people talking to warrant a forum of its.

    A tentative vote in favor from me!

    lol, I'm not sure whether to thank you for your vote or hate you for calling Twilight lame?

    (How sad, I'm a 22 year old woman, I should be calling Twilight lame too...) :)

    How many people would be interested in posting in this forum?



    I don't want another dead section in 2-3 months time because you guys find a more handsome guy to obsess over. ;)

    I probably won't post, I hardly post in the other book sections.

    I don't think it's that great an idea, Rach. After all, the series has ended. The only thing Twilight fans have to look forward to are the movies from here on in, and they can just as easily be talked about in the Movies section.

    I mean, I'd post for sure if the section were made, but I'm just not sure it would have a lot of substance compared to other series that have their own sub-section. :p

    There are a lot of other series on here that have ended as well that have their own section - Star Wars, Harry Potter, Chronicles of Narnia, LOTR, etc. I don't think that's a valid reason not to give Twilight it's own section. Besides, if it's added to Fantasy Worlds, we can discuss books & movies together to reduce space.

    I haven't signed up for a new forum for years since I found TFF, but I recently registered at thetwilightforums.com . There's a lot of material to cover. I just made a couple announcements in the General Books / Twilight Saga that warrant some discussion but it's hard to stay on topic in the same thread.

    Mods? What do you say?

    EDIT: Not to mention, adding a Twilight section will likely draw new members (given that they are teeny boppers). I joined for the ASoIaF section alone. Once they're here we can introduce them to other good fantasy that's non-vampire related.

    Then I vote against.

    Looking at the current influx of new members, I don't think more of their kind is needed :p

    I would have thought you'd be in favor of Twilight fan members. After all, a large portion of them are 18 - 25 girls.

    But seriously Appaliq is right we have three more movies to wait for and maybe a few more books from the series! (with different characters, or the complete midnight sun and all..)
    So Im in favor of this new section and I promise Ill post in it as much as I can...
