Maybe some better organization and merging similar forums would help increase board traffic?

Postby ThatAintNoPistol » Fri Aug 28, 2015 11:04 am

I've noticed a handful of forums are basically repeats (or, close enough) of other forums. And, there really is no rhyme or reason to the forums' sequence.

If you want to increase board traffic and use, less is more. Less forums, better organized makes everything nice and simple. Ultimately, you don't need to hunt and peck through as many forums to find the active threads or, threads people are currently participating in.

- The GOD Ace Frehley & KISS, could easily be merged into one forum as neither has enough activity to justify two separate forums

- The Yak Shack, The New Asylum & Freaky Opinions are all similar general discussion forums and merging them all into The Yak Shack would serve the same purpose and add threads to that forum

- The Garage & Lost In Limbo are both technical assistance forums, the slight difference between them isn't significant enough to need separate forums. Since this is an Ace themed site, maybe keep Lost In Limbo and merge the threads from The Garage into it?

- Adult Discussion & Ace Lust, is there enough activity between them to need two forums? Plus, they're both for adults over 18, the "girls only" thing is sort of juvenile when we're all supposed to be adults. Plus, there's enough gay and bi users that drawing a line based on genitals is silly.

Anyway, now that I've explained the method to my madness, here's an example of what it might look like. Essentially, by merging the forums, it would amount to five fewer and still route conversations accordingly.

Love it or hate it. It was just something that struck me when I saw the improvements so far, and thought it was worth a share. Cheers!

Nothing is going to increase traffic. Message boards are dead. :)

a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free,
and good men die like dogs.

So as one who can't be bothered anymore... why not?
Just asking.

For instance, Lenora came back just once to say hi, then nothing.
But she's all over Facebook with animal stories every day.
So finding time to fart around online clearly isn't a problem.
Don't see why the originals from SAO can't be fucked anymore.

Clay's probably busy with his band, but all the others....
Just sucks after working so hard to rebuild this place.

Sorry I've been awol, I went to the funeral of an old friend and it really upset me. I just totally spaced out for a bit afterwards and couldn't be bothered to come on most of the forums I normally go on. I just went on Gaia and messed around there as I wasn't there to interact with other people. It just really got to me, cuz my friend was the same age as me, but super healthy and veggie yet he's the one who's unfairly struck down. I just thought, what's the point of it all?

This year, I'm going to join our American cousins and celebrate Thanksgiving the old fashioned way. By which I mean I'm going to invite all my neighbours round for an enormous feast, kill them all and then take their land.
