Forum Reorganization

Postby Optimus Prime on Wed Jun 10, 2009 1:12 pm

Summer time is upon us and its time to do a little sprucing up around the grand community we have here at Conquer Club. Over the past few weeks it has been discussed that some changes to the forum and how it is organized have been looming for a long time and this summer is the time to get the ball rolling and give the community some new areas to play in, put focus on some areas that are long overdue for recognition, and freshen things up a bit.

With that in mind there are some exciting new changes going to be made to our forum over the course of this summer. Not everything will be large in scope, but some things will. We'd like to make the forum more informative, more friendly to newcomers, and easier to navigate while still focusing on the things that make this site so great, community generated content.

So, without further delay, here is a breakdown of the changes made today:

    The creation of a new category in the forum entitled Information. This new category is intended to house the various forums that help members of the community both new and old find information on playing the game, learning new maps, answers to common questions, etc.

    Added to the Information category are the Announcements, Newsletters, Strategy, and Questions & Answers forums. You will notice that the last two forums listed were previously sub-forums and have now been promoted to full forums to increase traffic, visibility, and usefulness.

    A new forum entitled Newsletters has been created to house all three of the popular community generated newsletters that have been circulating for a long time now. We felt it was about time they had a home of their own where members can find old issues, ask questions, make suggestions, and participate in the newsletter experience. The main Newsletters forum is where all the polls, subscription threads, requests for interview questions, and general newsletter discussions will take place. Added to that main forum are dedicated sub-forums for each newsletter that display all current and previous issues for the community to peruse and enjoy.

    The chief newsletter editors have been given a title under their username of "Newsletter Editor" if they so desire to bring attention to the dedicated work they have performed so far.

    Inside of the Strategy forum there has been a new sub-forum created entitled Official Guides which houses the results of the strategy ad-hoc to this point. Over in the strategy ad-hoc they have been working to create a series of map specific strategy guides that will help the average user learn how to play any specific map and/or settings a little more efficiently. They are not intended to be comprehensive in all ways, and if you would like to help further this project please see the instructions on how to join the ad-hoc inside the Strategy forum. At the moment there are 10 completed guides, with many more soon to be released.

    Last but not least, there has been a general shuffle of the order forums are displayed in the forum index. This has been done to get the forum ready for the next step of improvements down the line. It also has been designed to bring focus to areas that are heavily focused on user-generated content such as maps, tournaments, and individual training.

We hope you enjoy the changes, and we do understand it will take a little adjusting to the new order of things. We hope that the changes throughout the summer will help everyone to enjoy the community that much more.

Regards, Optimus Prime

Does this mean you decided against adding subforums to much ado about nothing?

Nope, this was just the first phase of the forum changes. There are several other planned, and addressing needs and concerns about off-topics is a phase or two down the line. That's why I started that research thread so I can be properly prepared when the time comes. :)

I think that has yet to be decided. As Optimus Prime mentioned---this is just Phase One---of a few more phases to come. If additional sub-forums come for the Off Topics forum, they will be rolled out with a later phase.

This is so weird.

Congrats Andy and team, good idea for the Map Foundry to be moved up the list instead of begin stuck down the bottom. We'll see if that improves traffic flow any. :)

My first response: "ach, shit... what the..."

Makes sense though, on further inspection.
