Now that there have been several more posts to this thread I'm thoroughly confused about how to handle this issue.
I think the overall design or format of the site is really important. Screwing around to much with this can confuse new members and lead to them leaving after not being able to grasp how our discussion periods are organized.
This is what I think is best...
1. I will create another "Editor's Pick" block in the right sidebar for "Our Inner Ape."
2. I'll announce it up top in the book block (where you see all the book images at the top of the forums)
3. I'll create a new forum.
