Additional forum categories ?
« on: January 05, 2007, 06:27:16 PM »
I think it would be great to have a forum category for posting about sessions or small events happening.

Would it be possible to create a "Sessions" or "Jams" category, does anyone agree ?

any other ideas? Id like to see global flat Forums community grow in the advent of PedalBMX really sucking these days id rather use this Forum since this site is by far superior!  :mellow:

Well I can see where you guys are comming from, but I think GF Is o.k. as it is, I mean, its not like each category is so filled with active threads that some active ones get moved to the second page, and besides I don't want GF to turn into another *cough* pedalbmx *cough*. not that martin would ever that that happen.

Im not saying to add a bunch of other categories but seperating events/sessions would make sense as we can find those topics more easily and it might generate more posts on that topic.

everyone loved when pedal bmx was one forum for all flatland, pics and what not. Then mods would move everything you type!

Is there really any need for new categories?

I think it's pretty much perfect right now.

If there were more categories, the population would "spread" around. And I for one don't like to go through 10 different categories to see what´s up.

Maybe in future, if this forum gets a lot bigger and bigger and you'll find 30 jam reports on the same page in flatland-category, but not at the moment.

hell yea, that "upgrade" was unecessary, it was fine as it was. Using the community as beta testers. And after all of that, it's worse..

well event forum would be better because there is always the news bot in GF that gets in the way...

also a little bit more arrangement and order in here would be awesome  :beer:

Hey hey don't blame the mighty news_bot  ;D

So it looks like we are going to open an event forum or category. There aren't too many positive posts in this topic but much more votes ..

By the way I don't think there is a need for many more categories. The only sense of an additional category should be to improve the overview and order in the forum. And in my opinion for the events it makes sense.

ye i hope this place wont go that far, but there is a forum in my country that has 0 sub forums, and its a freaking mess!!!!
just add max more 2 forums, dont do pics and vids... its too much and also not that frequen in my opinion, a stickied thread works perfectly always  -_-
