'''Off-A''' was created and trialed in July 2003<ref>{{Cite AVEN|955|Hot Topic}}</ref>, and is mostly used for threads and subjects that aren't specifically related to asexuality. The [[Identities (forum section)#Gender Discussion|Gender Discussion]] forum existed as a subforum of Off-A for a brief period in 2009.

'''Philosophy, Politics and Science''' ''(also known as "PPS")'' is one of AVEN's original forums, it was created in May 2002 alongside several other forums. A "science forum" was proposed in April 2006 <ref>{{Cite AVEN|15432|Science forum (moved from admods)}}</ref>, but the [[Forum Management|admod]] team concluded that the ''Philosophy n' Politics'' forum already encompassed this topic <ref>{{Cite AVEN|15432|post=419444|Science forum (moved from admods)}}</ref>. A similar proposal in March 2007<ref>{{Cite AVEN|22471|How About a Science Section?}}</ref> resulted in the admods altering the forum's name to ''Philosophy, Politics n' Science'' later in April<ref>{{Cite AVEN|22895|post=640807|Science forum (moved from admods)}}</ref><ref>{{Cite AVEN|22895|post=641187|Science forum (moved from admods)"}}</ref>. The forum gained its current name when another another similar proposal, from May 2009<ref>{{Cite AVEN|40858|Rename PP&S (Moved from Admods forum)}}</ref>, suggested that "Religion" should be added to the title. This was never implemented, but the '''n'''' was dropped in favor of '''and'''<ref>{{Cite AVEN|40858|post=1288163|Rename PP&S? (Moved from Admods forum)}}</ref>.

The '''Hot Box''' ''(affectionately known as "HoBo")'' was created in October 2004<ref>{{Cite AVEN|4939|New Forum/Ideas}}</ref>. As the forum's description states, this forum is intended for "controversial discussions, heated debates, and topics that deal with serious material that may be distressing to some posters". A forum-wide disclaimer banner was implemented in January 2009, which was based on a pre-existing Hot Box banner.<ref>{{Cite AVEN|37754|New banner in the forums}}</ref>. Hot Box's visibility was altered in November 2011<ref>{{Cite AVEN|67763|Poll for Hot Box Visibility}}</ref>, viewing this forum now requires a registered account.
