    I asked a question a few hours ago about a lemma from HTT and categorized it under “Mathematics, Physics, and Philosophy”, but it seems like it fits rather better as “nLab General Discussions”, since it is related to content on the nLab (and is relevant to nPOV stuff). It seems like the MPP category is more suited for discussions, but I figured it would be good to have a description of exactly what goes where.

    The basic rule on nlab vs attrium is whether or not the discussion is directly focussed on improving the nlab. So if it’s about understanding something from the nlab, then the attrium is a better place for it. The attrium doesn’t have many subdivisions as yet, so MPP is as good as any.

    One of these days, I’ll get round to putting this on the nForum help pages!

    In a related note, this question is about the organisation of the Forum rather than the organisation of the Lab, so I moved it. (I’m not trying to be critical; I just found it interestingly ironic.)
