Board Layout and Community Organization?
I've noticed that as makestation has grown, the board layout and general community organization has begun to feel a little unbalanced, and has generally been more ambiguous than it has needed to be. Right now, the "showcase" boards near the top of the forum index are especially ambiguous, and most of the discussion lately has been occurring in the boards that are dedicated more for off-topic purposes.

To help make things less confusing and more community-oriented, I've been working on a new board layout that would help to solve some of our problems. It would help to highlight makestation's purpose to become more than just a place to "showcase" creative projects, and would help our community to become a place for community-wide collaboration as well. Here is what I'm thinking at this point.

Forgive the messy bullet points. I'm apparently not good with libreoffice. Rest assured, the subforums (listed in italics) would look much nicer once implemented. Tongue

Anyway, what are your thoughts on the ideas listed above? Feel free to drop any of your suggestions, comments, or ideas as well. All of this is very tentative at this point.
