Posted:i think that the splitting up of the messageboard into new moves and technical discussion and social discussion is counterproductive, and wastes time. i dont know if anybody is with me on this one (maybe i'm just being stupid or lazy or something), but i think it's inconvenient to check four different messageboards when it's all the same people posting. the social discussion board seems to be the most popular, and not as many people read the other ones. and the traffic on this board has slowed down considerably since the board split even further a little while ago. i think in order for everyone's posts to be seen and replied to in a reasonable timeframe, since the traffic on this board isnt TOO heavy, it would be better to combine them into one board. but i could be wrong...i know some people like to check the new moves board and ONLY see things about moves, etc. i dont know, maybe i'm a blithering idiot, but does anybody think i have a valid argument?

Posted:Hey TGI dont think it's an argument kida thing, you prefer it one way, I (for eg) prefer it the other way. I guess it's kinda like reading a newspaper...you like to have all of the stories represented on the same page, so you can easily skim through, and I like them seperated, so I know what kinda feedback to give on a post, or where to put my posts so that they get the proper attention and a more focussed feedback. Neither you or I is wrong, we just have different preferences...Personally, when I'm in the mood to learn a new move, I dont like to have to read 4 posts that LOOK like new moves but really are social comentary or something before I find a move post. I think the technical and the moves could be safely merged, so that there is a social and a technical discussion but I dont think it makes a huge difference. You are probly accessing the web through a high speed link or something, but when I use my dial up from home, it is really slow. I like to know if there are new move posts, without having to read a whole section. In that way the new arrangement is far better, because you can see quickly which sections have new entries.but again - I think it is ok either way. I also think that any further changes will have more of a detrimental effect - better to just leave it and let ppl get used to it, otherwise even more ppl will stop posting.so yeah - thats what I think on this fine day.

Posted:Tekknogurrl,You may prefer the link above the forums listing that says Click Here To View Today's Active Topics (all public forums) I remember before I had a FAQ page I used to get 80+ emails a week asking questions. Now I only get about 5 a week with 4 times as many visitors per week.So... maybe there are less postings because people do a search for information first. The boards were split up to help people find what they want easier without wasteing time as Josh said. Hopefully we will get less FAQ's asked in the forums because answers are easier to find?There are many different board systems out there and all have their pros and cons. This one is by no means perfect and it would be great to provide different layouts for different needs for all people.As usual any feed back is much appreciated Non-Https Image Link Kindest regardsMalcolm
