Some feedback.
« on: August 12, 2018, 11:44:16 am »
Hi guys. So I've been noticing SEGAbits has been growing which probably sounds strange when u see the forums, but yeah the forum has been dying despite SEGAbits growing elsewhere. Forums have become a dying breed because things become more centralized in other places, through social media, youtube comments but also major forums like Resetera take a huge part of the cake because the people are there. There's something I noticed however and maybe something you guys can think about. This forum has a small community but has many sections. I think major forums like formerly neogaf which now is resetera had  the right idea in keeping the section count small.

I honestly think that games discussion should just be one section which should fuse general and classic sega discussion and maybe even offtopic gaming. I mean does it really matter what games we're talking about. The website name will decide the main topics for itself imo. And offtopic can obviously be a section as well. So 2 sections:

-General gaming discussion.
-Offtopic discussion.

It'll help make things in a less active forum to be more centralized hence it'll be easier to sink in. It's something of the time. I feel like people have grown to be used to get information aqap. The more u have on one screen instead of many, the less clicks u have to make  to reach somewhere, the better perhaps. Well anyway sorry for the bad english but I hope it's clear enough. Whadya think Barry, or George.

I see no problem with the idea, I'll run it past the others and see what they think.

Awesome thanks. The idea came from when I thought of opening some threads based off random thoughts, but I know how the process goes because I myself dont visit every section when I come to the forum. Just one place all gaming related would perhaps work better for 'viewership'

UPDATE: The only way to move things around was manually, so after a bunch of clicking I combined Modern and Classic SEGA Gaming as well as General Gaming into one General Gaming board. Off Topic remains in Everything Else.

If anybody has suggestions for what to sticky or unsticky, let me know. I think this is a smart move for the boards. Thanks for the idea, CrazyT! I have bumped your bling/karma points up to 100.
