[Suggestion] Forum cleanup

#1
There are some forums that would probably be a lot cleaner and less empty if they were simply merged in with some other forums. I think some of the forums here are genius, but the activity simply isn't here to justify them. The index would also look a lot nicer.

Thank you.

It has been quite a while since we did any organization, so I will agree, maybe some changes may be in order. What organizational changes in particular do you think could be made to improve the overall layout that we have now?

The Photography and Showcase section could be replaced with thread prefixes. Most organization could be improved with thread prefixes instead of near empty forums.

The Podium could be merged with its parent forum, Media and Entertainment.

Design Plaza could be merged with Web Design and Internet.

Collaboration could be merged with its parent forum. Add a thread prefix for Creative Arts/Indie Discussion, "Collaboration".

Not sure if I am confident with my decisions regarding other forums, but these I listed here I feel need to be optimized (merged/hidden - including thread prefix substitution). I'm sure there are some other forums that could probably improve forum structure and neatness, but I don't think I can justify my opinion well enough.

Before you do any of this, you should speak with the community, and yourself, of course.

I should definitely speak with myself! Tongue

I like your ideas. HOnestly, one of my concerns has always been that we have some boards without a whole lot of posts. The prefixes could be more useful at the same time, so I like that idea a lot. MyBB 1.8 now allows you to sort threads by their prefixes, which makes using them a lot more sensible.

I'm sure the others will probably be on board with the idea. I would like to simplify our boards a good bit anyway. In my opinion, we probably have too many, but I'm not sure if people share that sentiment or not. We don't even have 10,000 posts though, so hey, we don't need too many.

Thanks for the suggestions. Unless anyone really objects, I think it's a yes from me.

Okay, good to hear.

If you have any questions about my feedback, please post here and I'll try to explain.

Thank you.

HEY YO! That featured post "make it famous" thing actually works! 2015 I click and BOOM!! Relevant content!

On-topic: Darth? 2015? Forums? Clutter? Prefix's?
With activity on the rise, de-cluttering and condensing the forums could be the best step forward. I sometimes struggle to find all design discussions because they're scattered across different categories. Would be nice to keep everything together, and will look better on the forum.

If you don't have time, maybe Guardian could lend a helping hand Wink

I've had the same thought, and when I got time meant to go through them to figure out the cleanest, most sensible way for them to align.

I haven't gotten there yet. Tongue

So nothing to recommend to the boss just yet.

We were literally just talking about that in the staff board. It's coming up! We'll probably get a thread going for suggestions coming forward fairly soon. More focus on the web design section will be a high priority.
