Adding a second team discussion web part

We have a site that contains a team discussion.  The users have requested a second team discussion on that same site.  Is this possible?

Details:  the existing team discussion contains ongoing topic discussions as well as discussions about team agendas.  The users would like to separate these two conversation types into separate team discussion areas.

you could create a new discussion list for just that area of discussion and keep it separate from the original discussion list.

Or you could create a new column in the existing discussion where people can specify which category the discussion topic belongs to. The column (field) could be set up as a choice field, radio button or drop-down. Make it a required field and people have to fill it in to be able to save the discussion topic.

You can then create views of the discussion grouped by that new column.

Using view filters, you can create views where only Category A items show and other views where only Category B items show.
