Sub-forums updates
« on: August 14, 2010, 11:29:53 pm »
As mentionned in the previous news, there will be some site updates for a while. Last night and today, the first update involved changes in the sub-forums order on the board index:

-The Members-Only section was removed and its content was moved in the community one, except the TI game walkthroughs sub-forum, which was moved with the other calculator-related sub-forums.
-Some sections merged together. The Starcraft one merged with Gaming and the Featured Calc RPG Projects merged with Major TI Community Projects.
-The Gaming and Anime/Mangas boards are now visible to guests.
-Those last two sections as well as Randomness and Miscellaneous Talk are now sub-forums of the new Random Discussion one.
-The two Dutch sub-forums as well as the other language ones were removed completly.
-The front page discussion area was updated to accomodate those changes.

This was done in attempt to put more focus on calculator-related discussion as well as development and creation as well as reducing the amount of sub-forums that appears on the board index, especially the non-calc-related section and the members-only one. Also in the international section, only the french ones were used, despite our increasing amount of dutch users, so it made no sense to keep the rest.

I like all of the changes- I'm glad the Members Only section was removed and the forums there merged with the other sections, as that's definitely streamlined the index. One thing, though- the Major Community Projects section still says this:

Quote
Some of the best non-RPG calculator projects from our users, all with their own sub-forum.

With the merge of the Major RPG projects, this text probably should be changed.

The userbars in my sig are links embedded links.

And in addition to calculator (and Python!) stuff, I mod Civilization 4 (frequently with Python).

Woops, I remembered that last night before falling asleep, but I totally forgot again. Thanks for reminding me ;D

Also, for forum admins, the member-only section was really huge, because not only did it show the sub-forums, but it also showed the one that only guests see. On top of that, admins have an additional set of sub-forum below the old forum archive one.
