Forum reorganisation

I like the new plan so far.


But I'm not sure about the subforums being a hindrance by being hidden deep in the tree of forums? I think subforums actually helps in more organization and it doesn't hide stuff or make the forum searching less intuitive or something.
Also, many forums out there, some I frequen to, uses subforums, which Ithink is better than having all kinds of threads in one large forum.
However this issue may be more subjective in nature so it depends on how users feel comfortable and not confused by using the forum. A poll maybe?

Just a question, does Addons forum include the plugins? (I surely hope so.)

I agree, subforums are practically invisible. There should only be one level.

I also dislike subforums, in general. They have their place in certain circumstances, but should be used sparingly, I think.

I think that Ashley's proposed organization sounds fine. The "Your Tutorials & Example files" might get a bit cluttered, but I don't think it would be too bad. It would tend to make a logical grouping for many of the posts in those forums.

If there is someone willing to manage a sticky containing the list of mentionable tutorials, examples, plugins, creations and whatsnot (in appropriate forums), that'd be quite practical.

Oh, and don't look at me.

The sagamedev site's forum's are very nice.Go to http://www.sagamedev.co.za
I think they use the same phpbb as scirra's forums.

Really good tutorials can and should be added to the wiki - but those are aimed at general beginner tutorials, guides for a specific area shouldn't be on that page... maybe another wiki page could be made?

I agree with that.Tutorials are always needed.

OK, I'll go ahead and do this reorg tomorrow, so long as there are no new complaints.

This is done now. I've also updated a bunch of stickies with new information. Let me know if there's any other changes you think should happen.

I like the new changes; however, a small issue.
How is "WIP Addons" a SUBforum of "COMPLETED addons"? A little contradictory, if you ask me :P

My suggestion: Rename "Completed Addons" to "Construct Addons"
EDIT: Also, while there may not be enough of either to really need this, consider splitting Plugins and Effects to make Addon browsing easier (I think that, for now, the thread title method is fine though).
