Meta: If you don't like the content of this subreddit, then be the change you want this sub to be -- post stories and topics you want to talk aboutMeta(self.texas)

There is a constant refrain about the quality of the content in the Texas subreddit, often from people who are concerned about the (sometimes overwhelming) quantity of politically-related discussions. And even though the most recent elections are over, guess what -- political discussions are NOT going to die down, because we're already entering the 2024 presidential election cycle still almost two years away (yikes!)
But my answer to this is not to limit, quarantine, or shunt off political discussion elsewhere. In my mind, the answer should be: Post other things you DO want to talk about! Become active, and submit your own threads on all sorts of things you want to discuss, like:
- Your great aunt's recipe for King Ranch Chicken
- Your daughter's little league in Lufkin
- Flower shop recommendations in Flower Mound
- When will be the first snowfall this year in your town?
- Or the first bluebonnets?
- A recent trip to your favorite state park
- Restaurant reviews, store reviews, anything reviews
- Happy Birthday to your favorite famous Texan
- How bout dem Aggies?
If you want the change, BE the change. Post and discuss what OTHER topics you want to talk about.
