2. Agreed to use second alternative as suggested by Josef Think about wordpress categories and subcategories Pirate Topics (Global PP related news) Pirate Party News (Election Results, changes in Pirate Parties + EU parliament) Asia Australia Europe North-America South-America Interviews Party Introductions Pirate Introductions Tips & tricks (Organizational tips)
