I hate to be negative toward such a serious and well thought out suggestion. But no.

Oh, I thought it was about other people being naked. If people are forced to see me naked, I win!

I take it back, danger. Brilliant idea.

I have a few ideas to start spicing things up here in little ways - my Bohdi suace thread was kind of a test run for some other ideas I have. I would love to start doing more regular discussion in the music forum. I was hoping my lady singer polls would get a little more attention, but that brings me to something I was thinking about today, and I think Boba just brought it up - LESS forums.

It seems to me that by splintering the forums we get less participation in each discussion. I asked Lurtz why he hadn't voted in my lady singer threads while we was at my place this weekend. He told me he never visits the music forum. Why? Nothing ever happens there. So no one sees anything happening in certain forums, they dont go to the forums, and more nothing happens.

I propose a five-board set up like this:

ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT - Music, movies, TV, comics, animation, video games, crafts, hobbies, ect.

SPORTS - Seems like between sports and wrestling there is enough traffic for it's own forum.

COMMUNITY - Cantina/Angels style "haven" for people who want to discuss any random thing without trolls coming and gobbling up the discussion

THE LYCEUM - Debate type forum with a political/science slant where all bets are off and people can tear each other a new ***hole over whatever topics are on the table, if they like. If people don't like these discussion they can start a similar thread in the Community area

LANDO - Lando is nearly dead but needs to exist as the pressure valve for this place. We need a less-modded junk hole for the chaff like me and Tommy to fart joke and **** humor all day and all night

Then the private contributor/mod forums. Seems like the setup is already here (the "sections" of the board are basicly what I have outlined here but broken down into a million smaller forums) we just need to consolidate everything down. This would increase traffic because it would force people to visit all the "Entertainment" forums at once, or whatever. I honestly dont think there is enough traffic for this to be a muddled or confusing format.

i am a fan of the number of forums we currently have. i would be lost with a ton of threads in a mega forum. that's just my stance on the issue.

ENTERTAINMENT: maybe put tv and movies together (video games too). i could settle for that.
ARTS: music/food/literautre - i could get used to these together.
GEEK: comics/star wars/etc - i can dig it.
then leave the rest as it is
SPORTS
COMMUNITY

I really don't think so. I don't even visit forums, I use the "new content" button and its never overwhelmed.

Ideally, my thought would be a combination. Combine some, create others.

Movies/TV can be merged, I think. Probably merged in with comic books as well, since a lot of the conversation overlaps (if not always, at least often), but then branch out with some specific items off of that

So it would be Music/TV/Comics/Video Games(?)
Avengers Superheroes
Zombies


Community - Exactly as bodega described

Lando

Sports

Lyceum

I think that the tighter we're running, the easier it is to expand when there's a good cause.

The Zombie thing alone could handle Walking Dead (comic, TV, video game). General talk about zombies. Costumes. Zombie Walks (does anybody do those? I see them a lot downtown). Pretty much every video game made in the past 5 years.

you have to keep movies/tv, books, and comics seperate due to spoiler issues.


-ENTERTAINMENT: tv - movies - video games - animation

-ARTS: literature - music - food - crafts

[popular trends in geek culture - one or multiple forums possible]
-avengers
-zombies
-comics

-SPORTS: sports - fantasy - wrastlin' (idk why these aren't all one forum as it is)

[multiple community forums]
-cantina - safe haven
-lando - nearly everything goes fun zone
-lyceum - love it the way it is. pong is the best and most active mod we have. i vote mod of the year.

I maintain my vehement disagreement with anything regarding merging Sports and Arena. There's just NO overlap. And in a world where Mods had actual free time there would be multiple sports threads every week and thinks would quickly get cluttered.

Still more later.

No you don't. Just just have to put things in spoiler boxes and label them, and get over yourselves when you read something you weren't expecting.

yeah, spoilers kill traffic. better and easier to keep seperate mediums seperate.

ericka says she's surrounded by screens for 10 hours a day, so when she comes home she hides.

Spoilers do not kill traffic. Don't be so dramatic. This place was founded on spoilers.

i worded that too generally. i thought we came to an understanding that there are two different types of spoilers.

cross medium/format spoilers
spoilers specifically about something that has not yet been seen.

wrestling doesn't need it's own forum anymore. I quit posting in there a few months ago and it seems most everyone else has too. merge it with entertainment, it doesn't belong with sports.
