PostSubject: The forum layout   Sun Mar 21, 2010 8:53 pm

I've been to a lot of forums, both successful and unsuccessful, since about 2002. It's kind of a hobby of mine. Anyway one problem a lot of new forums have which I see here is the number of subforums. People don't tend to post in forums that feel empty and dead. With things so spread out and subject specific there is not enough activity and relevant material to keep all those sub forums active. Also, there end up being multiple areas where a subject could be discussed and subjects end up fractured and/or misplaced. I have been on forums with 100,000 registered users and not that many sub-forums. Trust me I know forums, and this is one instance where more is less.

In my opinion the forum can have one [subforum section] for more/than/one/specific/subject

Clan discussion/news/info/rules [clan]
Forum rules/ideas/bans/appeals [Forum]
Tournament discussion/info/event organization [events]
[Starcraft]
[Warcraft]
[dotA]
[WoW]
[Diablo]
[Console games]
social/random/other [lounge]

shrinking a forum down from 30 subforms to 10 subforums would help keep things more active and organized. This means preventing subjects like dotA preferences/builds from being discussed in three different places. Also, a subject like 'the ps3' does not need an entire separate forum for the online version when there arent going to be more than five threads in each of them a month anyway. I did not include a forum for maps because it seems that it would be most efficient for people to post links to maps in the forum of the respective game.

I hope this helps! Smile

You should add a chat thing to the bottom of the page like an Instant Message box
or even a Shout box that can be up front

Someone needs to get warlords attention on this thread, as blunt saw it but is done here.
I'll do it when I'm back from spring break but I wouldn't mind if it was taken care b4 then.

I could probably do it, but I understand the trust issue. Hopefully those good idea changes will be implemented.
