An excess of forums?

Post by QuantumNightmare » Fri Jul 20, 2007 5:47 pm

Seems like the forum bunnie has been hard at work lately, laying seeds for dozens of forums at a time. Can we sort the forums a bit better, beyond the "public" and "private" thing we have going right now?

There are a lot of new forums coming up. He wants it to either get more organized and reduce the number, or he does not want any more. I agree.

We already have "public" and "private". Public is for everyone, private is for members of the forum. Make a 3rd group for AFH members only, one that doesn't include spies. I won't list those forums in public here, but you should know what I mean.

Rules, introductions, anything and everything, suggestions...these can all be moved to a 4th group at the top. These are things that don't revolve around the gameplay.

This is one suggestion. Either way, I think we have too many new forums popping up. Live by the rule of K.I.S.S. - Keep It Simple Stupid!

Nice job. It's a lot cleaner this way.

With my first request filled so quickly, I'm going to make a second completely untenable request: can the private forums be placed above the public forums? The NS-13 and contest forums are by far the most popular right now, let's keep those near the top without needing to scroll down to reach them. ("Welcome->private->public" instead of "welcome->public->private").

On this very same note, can someone please make the order something like:
-AFHk forum
-Gameplay
-NS13
-Ascension Logs
-Contests

(In order of importance in a sense.)

He, point taken. So we all have a different view on what is important and what should be on the front page. Guess it's up to our fearless leaders to make the final call on what to do (or not to do).

I don't know what you're talking about. Contests is the most important forum right now. At least for me.
KoL is merely a distraction from the doooomish riddles. Thank goodness I'm doing black hole right now...

I try to keep the subfora that are updated with the highest frequency of posting.

I'd like a couple more days, personally, just to check through stuff for usefulness (because I know there's good stuff that ain't been moved), unless we're rapidly approaching an upper limit of post storage. And this approaching deadline may actually get others to look through it for me. Doubt it.

i'm thinking having two ascension log fora might be overkill too... although it would be nice to have the old archives, just because why not.
