I propose a forum board to be created for all threads regarding Bitcoin forks.

Moving such threads, including the wildly popular https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=36218.0 to offtopic seems rather strange, if not kind of odd.

Why does everything need to be heaped into this forum? It is already too busy.

IMO, forks should make their own forums. If you can make a genesis block, you can certainly install a PHPBB (or similar) instance...

See http://ixcoin.org/forum/

The reason for mention on this forum about a bitcoin fork is the same reason many businesses, organizations and many other affiliations/associations with bitcoin (in any way) are referenced directly at the source as an extra opportunity to spread the word and propagate such information.

I'd prefer that these alternate block chains use different forums, though I would consider creating a section if a really popular alternate block chain appeared. Ixcoin and Namecoin are not there yet, and I'm convinced that at least Ixcoin will disappear soon.

If an alternative were to come up to become popular, why not just make a thread and sticky it.
Having a section just for a fork would almost be like an insult (for how I see it, personally) to the Bitcoin economy.

An insult how? You think Bitcoin will have trouble competing? I see it as the opposite. If nobody can come up with a superior blockchain then the resilience of Bitcoin is proven and it will boost the confidence of the market.

An insult to think they could compete with Bitcoin. Grin

More like free advertisement for bitcoin to show that it encompasses its children forked genesis key blockchains and that those blockchains are based off bitcoin.  Although, I suppose bitcoiners (or a couple of them anyway) would rather segregate maybe?
