too many forums?

SystemSystem Posts: 8,619 Staff Moderation Team
anyone else think there is a bit too many forums around? surely festivals and clubbing could both come under "entertainment", and student life, action and volunteering, and jobs and work could be under something like "school and careers"? that way there'd be less forums to check out.

just an idea.

    There are a lot of new forums recently and I suppose we'd get used to them in time, and of course it's up to the mods because it's their boards! But you're right charley, it might be easier to condense some of the smaller ones so that it takes less time to check them out.

    I only regularly visit Anything Goes, Relationships and Sex, and just check out the others every so often because there's usually only a couple of new or updated posts a day in them and I can get away with letting them accumulate.

    Announcements I think is a good idea because people can check it out for any important news or whatever, but maybe the other smaller ones are less useful and would be better merged into bigger ones? As charley says, just an idea.

    Edited to add another point - Student seems quite popular and is another good new forum that can be used all year round, so I think that should stay separate. Festivals are a bit of a specialist topic for a separate forum though IMHO.

    Oooooooooooooooohhh being mysterious now are we?

    Festivals and clubing should I my view be together as should relationships and sex.

    I was thinking a Feedback forum so that we can give them ideas and feedback to do with everything that goes on around here.

    Festivals and Clubbing should go together I'll agree with that Skive, good idea.

    I'm not so sure about sex and relationships, the thing about the relationships forum is that people seem to use it as a family help forum as well.. ie. relationships with parents, problems with brothers/sisters....

    I've drafted together an idea something like:

    * Sex & Relationships
    * Family & Health
    * News & Politics
    * Students
    * Jobs, Work & Volunteering
    * Entertainment & The Net
    * Anything Goes
    * Clubbing, Drugs & Festivals
    * Feedback & Announcements

    oooo, justincredible, good idea...let me get out the trumpets and sing your praises!!! I'm being serious even though it doesnt sound like it i just had 2 cans of diet coke and the caffeine has gone straight to my none existant brain...bla blee bla!!! Travel, huh? Sounds good except i dont go anywhere but i like hearing about different places and hey, if anyone wants to donate me a much needed holiday then be my guest!!!!

    Woops, apologies for missing:

    * Travel, Holidays & Emigration

    That forum completly slipped my mind, its just a rough idea by trying to compress things down but keep responses and activity at a high point... <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    I'm definatly post there as I've said before...

    We were thinking...

    Put festivals and clubbing in with entertainment, still called entertainment

    Have a travelling forum

    This will probably happen in a couple of weeks...

    Put festivals and clubbing in with entertainment, still called entertainment

    I thought about this... <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;

    It certainly could be a debate that could go on for days, the only problem I think with that is that 'entertainment' is such a broad topic, you could include anything there like 'computer games', 'opera', 'snowboarding' and many other wide area topics.

    Festivals and clubbing are both music, so yes they could go together, drugs could be put within that subject because thats when they are often taken and go hand in hand with club culture.

    I'm not 100% sure the best way of working it, you guy's are the boss, thats just my opinion <IMG alt="image" SRC="http://www.thesite.org/ubb/smile.gif"&gt;
