Greetings all,

Many of our forums aren't as active as we'd all wish them to be, so lately we've been discussing combining forums. While I can't promise we can follow everybody's opinion or request on this matter, I think it's fair to ask you guys what you feel should be combined, and what shouldn't be combined. Here is some meat to get you started...

-We're talking about combining much of the "Gaming" forums, but not Forum Games.
-Possibly removing "Newcomers Forum" and putting that as a sticky instead.
-Combining Art/Programming into a creative forum.
-Bumping Tavern up to the top, general chat generally is.

I think this is a good idea. Newcomer's is just taking space. Bumping "The Tavern" to the top isn't really necessary. Also, combining PH and AMW into one forum is a pretty cool idea, but... You would have to give some description for what kind of stuff goes into the forum. IF you just write "Creative Forum' with no description, people would think that it's the forum for just Art, Music, Etc. and wouldn't even be aware that the forum is also made for PH. After all, it's a pretty neat idea.

You mean my lovable newcomer's forum will no longer be a forum?... Fine by me, although that won't necessarily stop new people from making threads in the Tavern about their arrival.

-We're talking about combining much of the "Gaming" forums,


You should combine Flash games, walkthroughs, MMOs and maybe quests. Video Games and Forum games deserve to be separate, as you just said.

Have nothing to say about the other two except that I agree.

My thoughts...

A "no" for combine:
- Quests
- Forum Games
- WEPR

Could be combined...
- Support with News Feedback & Suggestions
- Flash Games with me Walkthroughs
- The Tavern with Popular Media and Newcomers Forum
- Programming with Art, Music and Writing

No idea about
- MMO
- Video Games

Why not put Quests in Forum Games do you think? We still have a massive sticky that points out all the Quests/Games.

I think it's more sensible to put Quests in Flash Games--they are what they reference, after all. Forum Games is the playground by which we make nice roleplay sessions.
