OK soo looking at the list, why would Map Foundry be above GD? Also I think Training Grounds needs to be under information. Then the Sub Forum Plugins needs to moved out and put at the bottom of the list.

I think OP's reasoning for Tournaments and Map Foundry toward the top is that they are user-generated content---which are definitely driving forces behind Conquer Club. The Discussion forums have been moved to the bottom area for now.

Keep in mind, this is just Phase One---the next Phase, and the next, will really make more sense. Intermediate stages, like this one, may feel a little strange.

Owen, i hadn't been in that thread as i haven't had much time lately, but moving the foundry thread up the order of the forums was something that i for one (probably amongst many others) had suggested over a year back in order to improve traffic flows into the foundry. ;)

It seems to me that MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING should be the last forum listed...it's really not very critical to the success or operation of the site.

Nobody said anything about advertising. I think it is great they are recognizing user made content like the newsletters, maps, etc.

The problem is that they way phpBB3 works is that to have those moderation privileges, you also get access to the moderator control panel, which logs all manner of activities by anyone with mod privileges. Since it's inner-working-TeamCC variety stuff, it's generally not a good idea to let Joe Clan Leader access to it, particularly if it could get spamtastic on the logs (the Global Mods, bless their hearts, have to look at EVERY mod action in EVERY forum).

Usergroup Forum stuff is a whole different beast. We are still looking at ways to tackle that area.

and this is only phase one... andy has built up some cred with his actions the past few months... i think when he asks for patience, we can give him some... so, i shall quiet my cries of "foul" for the moving of the forums around, and just simply wait to see phase 2... keep up the good work.-0

Optimus Prime is more of the brains behind this Forum Reorganization---I'm just throwing in some input while I can. :D Credit where credit is due. But I think he's got a good plan when it comes all together in the next couple of months.

I think it makes sense moving things out of GD that didn't really belong there. The same thing should be done for the clans out of callouts IMO.
