Well since we've got a boost of activity, might get some input here.

This is what I notice randomly browsing the very select few other forums I visit here and there, that they have less general, bigger, active forums. Compared to us which is really spread out and all over.

Should we consider merging some, changing some, or what do you guys think?

I say keep it this way.
It makes it us, and its easier to find things. If we mash things together, I feel like there would be less organization. I like the way things are set up here

I say keep it. Give this acvitity boost some time and see what happens, but this question is definitely worth revisiting after we see what the board is going to look like on a more solid basis than just one day of activity.

I'm with these two.

Though there are several forums that aren't nearly as popular and could be mashed into another one, why fix something that's not broken?

If we have trouble we can always change it later.

I just have to wonder though, if we had slightly less forums... would the place look more lively? With everything so spread out as it is.

Dunno where I'm going with this. lol

I'd sorta agree with you, Xeo.

Quite a few forums I look at and see NEW, and then think: "oh another forum I'll visit just to Mark As Read"

I'm not all against the idea of merging forums, at all. I usually just hit "markallforumsread" **shrugs** I mean, I guess it could get annoying sometimes, but...this is only the second day of badass activity. I still think we should focus on that even moreso at the moment, and THEN talk about more revampment.

Yeah, I'm just saying like at Metroid Metal (my second usual board besides XG), they only have 4 forums. But it keeps things busy or something.

Granted I think that's too little... and I do like some of the specific forums here like Anime, Classic gaming (even if it's dead), etc.

Just stuff to think about I guess. However, I really do think a new banner needs to be made. I might try to whip up something, I dunno. Anyone else wanna take a shot at it?

Actually, I can't WAIT until I get my programs to make that shit. Won't be for another few months though, being as I have to wait until I get my school ID again before I can get 'em. No WAY I'm spending over a thousand dollars on the adobe crapola when I can get it for less than 300 bucks as a student.

But I'd like to make a lot for Xeogaming soon as I can.

Looking forward to it! Would like to see you whip up a banner someday or something.

I just ... randomly throw on some effects, slap on some borders and push a bunch of buttons with text... and viola! So, you guys could probably make a better one than me.

I dunno, I like the board as it is. I see some really strange mergers on other boards.

I think some of the specialized forums could definitely be merged like anime lounge, video forum, classic gaming, etc. But for the love of goodness, please don't mess with the rp forums. We've tried that before and it just ended up blowing up everywhere. I think it's good down there where it is now.

I really would prefer the anime forum not being merged. Though it does fit in with the "entertainment/music" category. I feel like it is something that some people are really interested in.

Gaming forums can become one. Anime remain seperate.

Sim-battle destroyed.

Truthfully, the only things I can see merged ARE the videogame forums. I mean....maybe sunset and general? If NEED be, then merge video and crazy. But I think anime should be kept separate. I know it IS a form of entertainment, like others have mentioned....but...anime just has it's own....feel....

Do we even need Sunset and Debate?



Video hut was pretty fun while it lasted, but yeah that one could probably be one with crazy now or a subforum. Videos are all over the net now. Haha, we lived through the youtube bang...

Hmm, here's an idea (wonders what Elara will think, heh)... but maybe Art and Story could be merged? Doesn't seem too far fetched...

I disagree with deleting simbattle. I'm just learning how to now, and it could make a huge comeback if allowed. I vote for keeping that one up and seperate.

Perhaps Tech Discussion should be done away with, again. Pretty sure that one has come and gone a few times. It's kind of useful, but that kind of thing would be fine in General Discussion.

I'd just like to say...

Subforums are the death of all discussion, as they're pretty much only readily viewable under last posts.

And yeah, keep debate and sunset, we don't really debate anymore, but its a little bit too heated to keep in General, and Sunset gets used pretty much any time anyone has a problem.

Art and story sounds good combined...

Simbattle/roleplaying kept, though near the bottom as they are...

Anime and entertainment...is anime not entertainment? Yeah, they're different types, but we don't have a separate forum for books or TV shows, even though they're pretty different. I'd say its a little to specific to keep as its own forum

Mreeh it's fine. We might as well merge video games into Entertainment at that rate. Anime's the type of thing that gets enough activity on its own. You can also always just see it as this way: Western Entertainment and Eastern Entertainment.

We don't really NEED to change the forums around at all. We all just be chillin'.
