I'd say play it by ear - there's no point preemptively making a separate sub-forum if nobody from ONM wants to come here. If we do get an influx of new forumites who would like a new sub-forum, then we should go ahead and make one.

If ONM or who ever comes here and they start posting lot's in sport threads we have and keep making new ones it might be a idea to move into a sport sub-forum and like you said balla then have one thread in that for each sport.

I vote no. (oh so that's what that feels like, I feel dirty now Wink )

On a serious note I just think it'd open a big can of worms that we don't need, if there's sports why not a music section, film section etc this is a site for talking games after all and if you feel like bringing up something that isn't related to games then off topic is perfectly fine for that.

That's enough polling, I think - fairly clear what the answer is. I won't be creating any new sub-fora for a while, but I'll certainly be open to the idea in future. But it'll be for members at the time, not to advertise to could-bes.

Erm, is anyone else having an issue where a lot of the links on the forum turn a sickly lime-green colour seemingly at random? Like, the last pages of every thread, the forum index at the top... it's disconcerting. Meh

It seems to have resolved itself, so it might have only been for twenty minutes or so. Very odd.

Balla from the affiliates thread wrote:
Header's getting a bit full, but we could scrap some links that are never used (Gallery, Calendar, Usergroups). But that's for another topic.

Agreed.

I've raised it with Zero.  Can't see him having any objection at all, but I'll wait for him to come back to me. Smile

EDIT: Okay, it's done.  All too easy to change back if Zero objects.  He doesn't. Can't get rid of the "usergroups" link, though.

Am I still too much of a noon to make suggestions? I'm going to do so anyway.

I think there's too many forum sections. My suggestion would be for  some to merge:

- Forum Feedback/News keep as
- Wii U and Wii + Nintendo 3DS and DS merge to one section: Wii U and 3DS (feat. Wii and DS)
- GNamer Community - keep the same (could add Podcast part here instead of separate section)
- Off Topic - keep the same
- General Gaming Discussion + Gnamer Gaming News merged together : General Gaming Talk and News
- Retro - keep the same
- Merge the 4 other sections into one Nontendo Gaming section.

I actually agree with most of those suggestions bar two - the Wii U and 3DS forums see enough new posts to warrant keeping them merged, plus we are a Nintendo forum so worth keeping them separate, and I wouldn't merge the podcast into community as it's a big forum creation like Admintendo so warrants its own place.

The rest sound fine - not sure if the News forum experiment has been a success, and the Nontendo sections barely see enough traffic to keep them separate.

Hm. The news section was originally, possibly before your time, amalgamated with General Gaming. The idea seemed quite popular on creation, with maybe one or two notable exceptions. For that reason alone I'd be loath to re-merge them. If enough people do want them recombined, however, we can always do that.

As for "Nontendo", that's up to non-Nintendo gamers more than me. I can see the convenience of having threads for e.g. the Dark Souls games, Batman games etc. in there.

Yeah merge Nontendo, they rarely see new topics and most people who own them will have at least 2 of those platforms anyway.

Yeah maybe leaving how everything is it is but merge all the other Nontendo and maybe sticky PS4, XBONE etc for the few times there used and big series or games like a Halo or Uncharted we or do have there own thread which would now be in general.

I wouldn't move Retro.

It sounds like people are keen on Nontendo, then! I'm about to go to bed, so that's a thing that will probably happen next weekend, I'm afraid. Will move things like the general multiplat thread and stuff across as well.

Just move iOS, PC, Xbox and PlayStation to general gaming that's that nothing else has to be done well maybe the sticky but nothing else needs to be moved.

Nah, a Nontendo section keeps it cleaner, whilst General Gaming can be for general miscellaneous chat like Balla's Metroid thread or the music threads, for example.

Non-Nintendo is being slowly but surely destroyed, this is an assured win for Ninty.

the could be a lot a work for Balla then as Batman, Elder Scrolls, Final Fantasy etc threads would have to be moved to to Nontendo. To me there general gaming things though.

But they're only in General because we've not had a Nontendo section before. Sure, a few game in those big series threads have been on Ninty consoles, but you wouldn't associate them with Nintendo. If Balla reckons it's too much work to shift everything, then that's another story, but I don't see your point about them being general gaming threads.

I'm saying that gaming is gaming be a thread to talk about Final Fantasy or what we want from a Metroid. Were still just chatting about them.
