My only real criticism of this fine ass site, is that there are a lot of sub-forums in comparison to the size of the FC.
There are 50!
I only say this as I have run a number of forums over the years, varying in size from 150-3000 members, and even at peak there were too many forums at about 8.
My current forum has about 150 members, and 4 Forums (Gaming, Chit-Chat, Arts & Entertainment, Computers and Technology), and I am considering combining the last two. It promotes posting, as there is always new content at the top level. It's super weird to see a forum have a 0 count, but see there is a post in one of the sub forums.
I would suggest at the very least merging all sub-forums into its parent. At least that would bring it down to 13.
If you like the idea of culling forums to promote posting, wouldn't "Professions" relate to the Disciples of the Hand/Land? Those could be combined/merged.
And Couldn't Strategies/Beginners Guide/Game Guides be sort of combined into a general strategy forum?
Thread titles would dictate the Guide/Strategy anyway, so its really just making the content easier to access.
That would bring it all down to 10 forums, which show actual Post counts in that section, and promote posting as theres less places to decide where to post, to get the most visibility.
Anyway, thats really my only thing, otherwise, its great! Sorry it turned into a novella.
np, I value the feedback. The main reason for all the different sub-forums is that these were all requested (by people that left...) and I have thought about merging them down. Since there is now someone else saying what I have been thinking, I will try to get started on that this weekend.
