Default Forum Organisation Suggestion (Jan/Feb 2007)

Actually, a query and a suggestion.

Firstly, there's no "general" forum any more. In order to help get more posts, there's a pile of threads I'm planning to start, but there's no suitable place for them. They're not funny, they've nothing to do with Cork, Ireland, food, drink, books, films or sport. If Feckthat is going to remain divided into small fora, there needs to be an obvious general one.

Secondly, considering how small and quiet this place is, is there any need to divide things up into smaller fora? Wouldn't it be better if there was just one big general one?

I think fewer forums are better. Better to have 2 forums with 8 active threads in each than 8 forums with 2 active threads in each

Okay, revision 1.

How about :
  • Sex, Drugs and Rock & Roll (for General Chat, day to day stuff, random stuff)
  • The Living Room (about daily life in Ireland, covering sport/music/culture/food)
  • Just for Laughs (links,email forwards, jokes)
  • Forum Feedback (for stuff like this)
And we could cut out the news posts from testman, or we could put them in a forum of their own. Like

i think you would need a greater difference between first two. the media pc music entertainment etc forum seems to be doing okay from what i can see. the main loss is the "general" forum lets say which would be covered by sex drugs etc.

well film doesnt appear anywhere. maybe if you just decide that all things to do with news, edu, jobs, and society go in forum 1, and that food, drink, music, film, media etc all go in forum 2 and so on and worry about the titles later

4 fora should be enough ?
News
ChitChat
Feedback
More serious discussion

Changing the colours isn't planned at the moment.

I still think separating "serious" and "chitchat" isn't a good idea, the best topics are the ones that wander miles away from their original intent [in my opinion, Pablo may disagree]

so where do you talk about various media there? in daily discussion?
what about sport?

i still think that naming all topics then grouping them together is better idea rather than just giving some titles.

if it were my forum i would go with something like the following.

General Chat serious or not
this has been the lounge, sex drungs rock and roll and ireland,.ie type forum but i would call it something new or the lounge

Recreation Room, Hobbies etc, everything but work!
here i would encourage all music, tv, film, literature, dining out, travel, gigs, hobbies wether it be magic or knitting you are in to, everything but work! naturally sport would go in here as well, basically the after 5pm thread!

fun and frolics
the email forwards, jokes, silly polls, nothing serious! youtube and metacafe links etc

six one or whatever you want to call it
the news, the waether, current affairs, all things testman and i would put a sub forum as support as usually that is quite serious but doesnt happen very often,

well i suppose i'd chop one after a while if they were over lapping.

i suppose the "lounge" thread would be for things without a category. like talking about the bodega lets say, or call the gardai thread etc. things that would fall into the "other" category. yera i dont know just said there was no point of me criticising pablos suggestions (no disrespect) if i werent able to think of my own.

also i think all education type comments would go in there. but they have become few and far between also. i dont want to make a simple suggestion complicated either
