Divide off topics further

Postby Gillipig on Sun Jan 20, 2013 1:27 pm

Divide off topics further

Off topics is currently divided into "Forum games", and then the rest is clumped together in one big soup.
No part of the forum is as poorly structured as the off topics. I suggest dividing it further into; "Politics" and "Science and Religion". It's immensely hard to find what you're looking for in the off topics, more structuring is needed.


How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
Provide us with a more user friendly forum and making it easier for us to find what we're looking for. (And avoid what we're not looking for)

I like the idea.

Who will be in charge of sorting all of the threads that are already there?

If you are thinking I'm going to do it, then I don't like it as much.

Ain't nobody got time for that.

Off topics isn't really your forum, whoever is in charge there would be doing it.

Isn't the point of OT that it's "off topic"? This isn't a politics, news, current events, etc. site. It's a gaming site.

I rarely, if ever, happen over to OT, so I don't really know/care, but it seems to me like OT is and should be just an area for whatever people want to talk about. I like this:

I don't disagree with that, but it could be organized a little more.

In case you didn't know it's already separated into "forum games" and the rest. So that's why I said dividing it further. Also, mafia games are not cc related, they're an off topic forum, they probably should be sorted under forum games, because that's what it is, a forum game. If OT would be completely unsorted, you'd have mafia games, other forum games, and all other topics mixed together in one big pile. I don't think anyone would like that, so clearly there's need for division of different topics there as well.

agent was arguing that it wasn't sorted at all and should stay that way, if we've already started sorting the forum we might as well do it properly. Which would mean that politics should get a subforum of it's own and probably the same with religion and science. So hah..... I'm right again :)!
