Title: Suggestion: Cleaning up the forums
Post by: Brad_Troika on April 05, 2017, 09:41:51 am
Hi!

So I think it would be beneficial to clean up the forums. Currently the main page has 40 different main topics with only 10 being used in the last 30-35 days, plus 5 being used in 2017. Considering the number of people using the forum and how some of the topics are barely used (SavRes, Competions, etc) I suggest limiting the number of topics to 5. These could be: Savage XR General  Savage XR Servers  Savage XR Development  Savage XR Modding and Off-topic.

This would make finding and reading new posts significantly easier as right now my main method is just to check last posts instead of scrolling through the forum pages. While I doubt this would generate much activity I hope that it would at least NOT discourage it as I feel the current layout does.

This could also be an opportunity to merge the forums on server.groentjuh to Newerth (into XR Servers).

So what I propose is to copy and archive the current forum into one place at the main page of the forum and create either the topics I proposed or at least something that is more manageable and migrate the currently used topics into it. Creating the new topics would also mean getting rid of sticky posts that have been accumulated throughout the years.

I posted about this somewhere too. Having way too many sections to the forums, many with the newest post being years old, makes the forum (and thus the game) look abandoned.

Clicking on the categories might help you for now.

Alright, I optimized the forums a little (and shrinked it from the looks).


Feedback is welcome and wanted.
