All,

I have made some changes to the forum tree.

A draft sub-forum has been added to the Lounge. We got enough requests to keep the draft talk organized and separate that I decided to add it.

I moved the tech committee forum (for those of you on the committee) out of the Lounge and into Arrowhead.

I'm looking at organizing some of the other Arrowhead children, including the Store, the tickets for sale forum, and the articles forum.

If anybody has any good ideas, please post them here.

Nothing personal, but that idea is a real taintlicker.

Can we move the sub forums to the bottom of the page instead of at the top?

Good call Htis... The draft forum at the Mane is one of the most popular forums every year. It's great having all that information in one place.

That's something Kyle is gonna have to answer. I don't think it's possible without modifying the software.

That's what I thought, but figured it would be cool as hell if it could be done.

Isn't it a little redundant to have it called "Chiefsplanet Draft Whatever"? Maybe something simple like DraftPlanet...

How about a server that can handle the load?

Since you are asking, here are my thoughts...

Games forum... move FROM lounge (either now or after superbowl).
DC forum... move TO lounge (either now or after superbowl).
GeeksPlanet... leave as is.
Pictures forum... leave as is.
MusicPlanet... eliminate it entirely. Since when do we break up the general discussion topics?

Moving off the games one after the end of betting is a good idea, no doubt.

The Music one is okay with me, but I don't think it creates enough traffic to be on the Lounge page. If the mods want to move things there after they drop down a few pages off the Lounge to keep things organized, then thats cool.

Do NOT move the DC Forum back to the Lounge.

Everything else is okay with me.

Happy to have the political crap where it belongs.

Why exactly shouldn't the DC forum link be at the top of the lounge? I understand not wanting a return of the political topics back into the lounge itself, but Why do the words "DC Forum" need to be entirely removed from the lounge entirely?

It's the 2nd most popular forum on this board. It's as much a part of the identify of this place as the Girly thread. More so, maybe.

Again, why?

I'm with Jaz as to not understanding why we can't have a link to the DC forum at the top of the page. Note, we're not saying get rid of the DC Forum and have all the political junk cluttering up the main board, just having an easier link to a popular forum.

Actually, it would be a big improvement to bring the D.C. forum back to the main page in arrowhead with the last to post info like it used to be...

Even better, do away with the D.C. forum and let topical discussions back on the planet where they should be.

If you REALLY want DC back at the top, post a poll.

It's a waste of time, but whatever...

By the way, video game threads will be moved to Geeksplanet I think, to avoid confusion.

As for the DC forum...

I'd just like to discuss the refusal by some (maybe many) to even agree to the sub-forum link at the top of the lounge. I don't understand the willingness to "support" a MusicOnly forum that seems to have but a handful of users/particpant, but refusal to allow such a sub-forum.

I don't understand the thinking there.

"We" (the political discussion types) agreed to take our heated, passionate discussions to a seperate forum. I personally was a leader & advocate for such a forum. I respected the frustration of the other posters who objected to the overwhelming flood of political threads filling the first page each day.

I lead the fight to improve their experience by taking my topics to a seperate forum. I'm not sure why that significant gesture of respect and courtesy isn't returned to the DCers.

It's certainly not a great deal to ask to have a Forum Link at the top of the lounge. As I've said, we are talking about the 2nd most active/popular forum on the entire site.

Again, why?Because when we want to get dirty, we know where downtown is.

Any chance we can get a link to this forum from the "at work" view?

Why is the draft a sub-forum while the main board is cluttered with such Chiefs/football toppics as "what should I eat at the blah blah Grill" ," I just had a roast beef sandwich" etc.?
