Suggestion: Create another board index

Postby qwertyo76 » Sun Mar 15, 2015 12:58 am

Pretty crowded in here at the moment. I don't think anyone was expecting this. I think you guys should have another board index category. As in, right now it's just, "Project Ukulele," but that's turned out to be too broad a discussion topic in scope. How about several forums with sub-categories to make things more organized? Like:

Project Ukulele
--News
--Suggestions and Questions
--General

Playtonic Games
--Questions to the crew
--General

Welcome and Introductory (For new members. Seems a couple people are already doing this anyway.)

Everything Else



I dunno, something like that. Just tossing around ideas.

The forums definitely needs some organising, that's for sure. Project Ukulele, Playtonic Games and 'General' are the only main categories I think we need at the moment. Not sure how to divide them further, but your suggestions seem more or less right.

As long as there aren't any forums for Nintendo or their past games. (They could of course, they just aren't legally affiliated with them and it would seem a bit iffy.)

Yeah, I think it's a good idea. I don't think the subforums are necessary. Just have a Ukulele forum, a Playtonic forum, and an Everything-Else forum.

I would also say no to sub-forums for the time being. The number of active users are likely to fall in the next few days/weeks (until another cool announcement is made) -- if there are loads of sub-forums, there will be loads of dead sub-forums.

Although, with that said, I like the idea of splitting ideas/suggestions into their own sub-forum simply to make it easier for Playtonic to read what we want in the game.

I came back after a couple hours and kaboom, explosion of posts and people. Which is good! Generate interest and all! It's just a lot, and it's, quite frankly, just unorganized. People could taper off in the next few days... or they could keep coming.

I get the fear of dead sub-forums, but I would rather not be bombarded with a million of the same topic because people can't find another one either. One or two wouldn't be that bad, just general ones that draw vague subject lines.

Once the forum gets big enough, perhaps you can allow for other categories, for people who want to discuss other things like games they play on their systems and whatnot. For now, though, I think the suggested boards are good enough, since Playtonic Games just made these forums.

I think the board will get smaller in size soon and then gradually get larger over time.

So here's how it needs to be decided. Playtonic Games. Project Ukulele. Off-Topic. Playtonic games for other projects. Questions to Staff in Playtonic games or support with forums or such or ban appeals or whatever. Project Ukelele questions, general discussion, suggestions, news section. Off-topic divided into Media Culture (Arts & Entertainment), Video Games, off-topic and Introductions.
