Usefulness of subforums

  1. 1. Do you think the Off-topic subforums should be combined with OT?



Recommended Posts

We all know that OT isn't exactly bustling with activity these days. However, the subforums are even more dead than OT is. The sports forum hasn't had a new post in over 6 months, MMT has only had 8 topics posted in this year (one of which being the What are you listening to thread that is pretty much being kept alive singlehandedly by Dax), and the video games forum only has about 10. However, from our posts in the today thread, none of these topics are uncommon interests for the regulars here, but nobody wants to bother going to these subforums to post about these topics because nobody would read them there (as we just saw with the Pokemon Go thread that got moved to Video games and consoles).

 

I feel like at this point it's extremely unlikely that these forums ever have a rise in activity, and I think it would be more beneficial to either archive the subforums and just forward new posts on these topics into OT or just merge these forums into OT altogether. I think that not splitting these off into other forums would encourage more conversations to happen than our one semi-active Today thread and would possibly get the few stragglers left on these subforums to be a little more active with us as well.

 

What do you all think?

I agree. It made sense to separate them when they were originally separated, and it makes sense to merge them now.

Randox is admin. Tripsis is still an admin right?

I've brought this up to the rest of the team for discussion.

 

And just FYI: the moderating team  ;) Yes, Tripsis and Randox are still admins, perhaps not as active as they once were but the forums aren't as active as they once were either.

THE place for all free players to connect, hang out and talk about how awesome it is to be F2P.

So, Kaida is the real version of every fictional science-badass? That explains a lot, actually...

I assure you, the administration still lives. As it stands, all forum management currently runs though me, and any PM's directed at the administration should likewise be sent my way.

 

Moving on, it seems the community has spoken, and I happen to agree besides, so without further ado, I will start the setup and get the threads moving into their new home. This means the sub forums are going to vanish, followed by the contained threads being moved into OT.

Remember this date: 7/17/16, the day OT banished the oppressive subforums from their board.

the turkey coup may have failed, but the great TIF OT coup of 2016 has been a resounding success!

 

In our benevolent mercy, former dictator Randox will not be put to death; but will instead be sent to exile in General Discussion, to live out her days on the "200mil in all skills" thread

Erdõgan still rules and was harsher.

So I've noticed this thread's regulars all follow similar trends.

 

RPG is constantly dealing with psycho exes.

Muggi reminds us of the joys of polygamy.

Saq is totally oblivious to how much chicks dig him.

I strike out every other week.

Kalphite wages a war against the friend zone.

Randox pretty much stays rational.

Etc, etc
