It's in the works. I still have to nail down exactly what I want to do and then get approval for it.

I am going on a hunger strike until this matter is resolved!

Well, if it doesn't get resolved, I can always take over and make it into a hot website!

I don't think we should divert into comedy for this super serial topic that has focused on making the forums less messy.

Not when it's super serial like this. Then it's straight laced the whole time, and not the fun laced like laced with cocaine.

I thought we had moved on to cutting out the extra forums, but you guys keep bringing me back in to the original purpose of the topic. How dare you stay on-topic.

We do not need all those game boards, peeps!
« Reply #111 on: June 30, 2017, 05:54:42 PM »
It's summer, so I must bring this back to the foreground. It's so empty seeing rarely used gaming boards like Hardware and the like. At least Matchmaking could be in General Gaming as a sub-forum or something. And all those long-expired and obsolete forums for friend codes and no mentions of the Switch. This makes me sad. I hope I typed this without errors because it's hard to see currently through my tears.  :'(

Did anyone compliment the minor changes to subforum descriptions yet? At last it says Switch, Wii U and 3DS in the console and handheld sectons!

Way to go, Insanolord. Pretty sure it would have been him since he had moved the forums around during Khushrenada Week. It was something I felt like pointing out since Console discussion only mentioned GameCube and Wii as systems when we've moved on to Wii U and Switch already. I did make a point about the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection description in Tech Support so perhaps that was enough to cause him to look carefully at all the descriptions. Either that or when he was putting the regular descriptions back to the correct forums, it may have seemed silly to report that out-of-date information.

In any case, it's still a good job Insanolord. At least some forum improvement was able to be started from the madness. The first steps have begun, right?

Yeah, I did it when I was renaming all of them back to what they originally were, and it was prompted by your Wi-Fi Connection comments.

Yay progress.    So I take it we can request improvements to the forum and you will look into implementing them?

I don't know how many of them I can realistically accomplish, but sure, if you've got ideas by all means let me know.

It's nice to see some change, but what's a Wii U?

Hmm, should the Switch be listed in both Console and Handheld forums? After all, it's both, right...?

1. For the amount of traffic this forum seems to get, there's way too many subforums. Now when new people (like me) check it out they see a whole bunch of dead subforums, making the whole place seem empty.
Why is there a strategy one, that fits in with gaming, why is there a hardware one, that could merge with consoles. And even there I would merge all three (handheld, consoles and general) as well.

Kind of amazed this was brought up back in 2016... and that was the last time the strategy board was posted in too. I concur that the strategy board really needs to go, and in general any efforts to consolidate would help. Not just make the boards feel more active, but would probably get new posts in front of more eyeballs as well.

...and the strategy board along with a ton of others are gone for a much more streamlined look. Kudos to whoever on the staff did this.
