[Feedback] Forum Reorganization

Hi! Welcome to the Feedback forum.
Before reading anything or asking anything; please check out the FAQs. Your question might be in there. However if you want a better understanding after reading the FAQs, like if it didn't explain it good enough, then by all means ask your question.

Please read the following before posting in this forum...

In this forum you will see an Announcement, and several "sticky" topics. The announcement is the Universal Board Rules. If you are new, read this before doing anything else! The sticky topics will stay above and separated from normal user-made topics in the forum. This is because they outline important information about the board. If you see a sticky topic concerning your issue, please reply with your question or concern in the correct topic. Moderators will see your reply within these topics. Before asking your question, be sure to read the topic and its first page especially. It contains information about your issue that is valuable and may even answer your questions. If the topic does not answer your question, ask your question within the topic, not the forum. If no sticky topic concerns your issue, then you are welcome to ask your own questions by creating a new topic within the forum.

Thank you for keeping the Board Help forum organized!

[Feedback] Forum Reorganization

Postby Azdgari » March 3rd, 2018, 1:09 am

Per the announcement, we're going to be consolidating the forums to help trim the fat a bit. A 'first draft' at this reorganization is below, so please provide input if you'd like to make any changes before we put it into place!

KEY:

Section
- Forum
+ Subforum

----

Welcome
⁃ News and Announcements (merge in awards, which can be posted here if necessary moving forward)
⁃ Introductions
⁃ Feedback and How-To

The Kingdom
⁃ Lion King
⁃ Lion King II: Simba’s Pride
⁃ The Lion King 1/2
⁃ The Lion Guard
⁃ The Lion King Remake
⁃ Beyond the Lion King (Merge in TLK awards, Creators, TLK on Broadway, TLK-Related Links and Advertising)
+ Lion King Marketplace

The Fandom
⁃ Fan Fiction (merge in planning)
+ Original Characters
+ MLK Writing Contest
⁃ Fan Art
⁃ Other Fan-Created Media
⁃ Role Playing (merge public and private-can just tag those in the title)
+ Discussion and Planning

The Lounge:
⁃ Member HQ
+ Q/A
+ Birthdays
+ Personal Issues
⁃ The Den (merge in Disney, Graphics Forum [or archive—that forum’s well and truly dead], and World Issuers [can just tag these moving forward, seeing as that area has been quiet for a long time])
+ Entertainment (merge all of its subforums)
⁃ OT Creations (merge all subforums)




ARCHIVED FORUMS:
• MLK Radio
• Awards
• Characters: Characters can probably be discussed in their respective movie forum? Although I suppose for characters that are in all movies (which I guess is a lot) there could be confusion about the right place to discuss.
• Poetry Contest
• Fan artist of the week
• Off topic links
• Role Play (OT)




Consolidating will help us focus on topics and areas that are most active, and it helps the overall forum impression not have sections that haven't seen a post in years.

We can rename world issues again, lol.

I'm probably going to agitate to put this into place pretty soon, so if anyone else has thoughts, let me know by the end of the week or forever hold your peace.

This brutha gets it.

To be honest with you guys I still don't think you're really going after what the real problem is. But if you're going to reorganise the boards then I've been thinking about it and what I would have is:

The Kingdom

Lion King
Lion King 2
Lion King 3
Lion Guard
Lion King remake
Other Lion King Media


Website & Forum

Introductions
Feedback % How To
Announcements
Lounge (Get to know other members here)

Creativity

Fan Creations (all Off topic and Lion King related fan creations here)
Roleplay (both off topic and LK roleplay and planning threads here)

I don't really see the point of consolidating so much of the forums if I'm being perfectly honest. :/ It makes it much harder to search for specific topics, especially in the spamfest known as the Den. I definitely think some sub-forums can be archived but... yeah, not really a fan of merging large chunks of the forum. Here's how I would reorganize it:

• Welcome
⁃ News and Announcements
+ Awards
⁃ Introductions
⁃ MLK Radio
⁃ Feedback and How-To

• The Kingdom
⁃ Lion King
⁃ Lion King II: Simba’s Pride
⁃ The Lion King 1/2
⁃ The Lion Guard
⁃ The Lion King Remake
⁃ Beyond the Lion King (merge in Characters, Creators, TLK on Broadway)
+ Lion King Marketplace

• The Fandom
⁃ Fan Fiction (merge in planning)
+ MLK Writing Contest
⁃ Fan Art
⁃ Other Fan-Created Media
+ TLK-Related Links and Advertising
⁃ Role Playing (merge public and private-can just tag those in the title)
+ Discussion and Planning
+ Original Characters

• The Lounge:
⁃ Member HQ
+ Q/A
+ Birthdays
+ Personal Issues
⁃ The Den (merge in Disney and World Issues)
+ Entertainment
+ Movies & TV
+ Music
+ Games
+ Books & Literature
+ Outdoor Activities
⁃ MLK Archive

• OT Creations
⁃ Literature (OT)
+ OT writing contest
⁃ Art (OT)
⁃ Role Play (OT) (merge in planning)
+ Original characters
⁃ Other Creations (OT)

I'd archive Characters, the Poetry contest, Fan Artist of the week, Character interaction (all), the Graphics forum, The Lion King Awards, and Off-topic links (new links can simply be posted in the Den)


Just my 2¢.

Because you end up with just a load of forums that no one posts in for years, like it is now.
