(8:49:55 PM) Draggonx: okay i give up, for a casual visotor, you forum is horrid, sorry
(8:53:12 PM) Pervach: yeah, pretty much
(8:53:49 PM) Pervach: what would be less horrid?
(8:54:18 PM) Draggonx: hmm. it DOES depend on who you are aiming it at
(8:55:17 PM) Draggonx: theres just a LOT of subforums and a lot of topics in them, and a lot of them are old, but not all of them would be unwanted-old, you know? do you guys clear out the stuff you dont use anymore? if not, having an archive forum could be a good idea
(8:55:56 PM) Draggonx: means for a casual visitor who goes "i think il have a quick look to see what these guys are about- ahhhhh too much!"
(8:56:14 PM) Draggonx: because, first rule of everything, people are lazy
(8:56:43 PM) Pervach: you basically mean... clearly identify stuff that's old?
(8:56:58 PM) Draggonx: yup!
(8:57:29 PM) Pervach: shouldn't be too hard... I hope.
(8:57:38 PM) Draggonx: because it...demotivates people from continuing to browse when they can see something like, say from before the election, cause the brain then associates everything else nearby as being same time period
(8:57:56 PM) Pervach: viewforum.php?f=20
is particularly relevant
(8:58:59 PM) Draggonx: is that one of those predone php/bb/something forums? cause its not to hard with them to move topics around. um, darn ive already forgotten, do you use stickies to highlight important topics in each forum?
(9:01:57 PM) Draggonx: also- this is a blantently personal preference for anything im "in charge of"- seeing topics with 0 replies is like, ouch. for some reason i always feel that its nice for "the bosses" to at least acknowledge peoples responses. also to support their fellow bosses efforts. discussion and dialogue babies. (unless its an announcement thing)
(9:02:38 PM) Draggonx: you need a "resources" page
(9:03:15 PM) Draggonx: since like, access to information is one of your things, it would make sense to help...facilitate that
(9:03:23 PM) Pervach: would on the wiki be enough resources? hmm
(9:03:54 PM) Draggonx: hmm your wikis not go yet though, is it? last i heard you wanted it re/written
