    Strangely this topic is proper to About This Board. I really like the changes in the Off Topic area and have said so. I like the addition of an area where people can talk about things, without it being spammed out of existance, without it having to be earth shatteringly important. However navigation has become slightly confusing with there being 2 sections, one of which then splits into another 2, then again I think

    Would it be possible to just have the 4 sections within the main heading of Off Topic :

    World News
    Talk Room
    Lounge
    Funny Stuff.

    That would make it a lot easier to navigate about and know where you were. I no it is quite trivial, but I think this small change would make a big difference to ease of use. Anyone have any thought ?

    A good idea, it is a little annoying as it stands. And perhaps it is time to get rid of the funny section...to be honest most people will post vids/jokes in the lounge if they want them to be seen...I know I do.

    Good point, the three sections are really enough for what everybody wants or uses them for.

    Yes this is another thing that caused the Lounge to go downhill.The MODs let People keep Threads in there that should be Moved to Funny Stuff.

    Everybody just kept on Posting in there thinking it was ok.They never even think of Posting in other Sections anymore.

    Now Flame back at me for Posting the Orange SoftWare in MusicWorld when I should of Posted in SoftWare World and this Thread will really Heat up.

    It just seems the right time to do it just now. The new more serious Talk Room has just been created, so that would leave The World News, The Talk Room and The Lounge. The funny stuff could go in The Lounge, as Funky Capricorn says, they do it anyway.

    I think you probably had a good idea, that was just a bit ahead of it&#39;s time. Hopefully whilst the changes are being made the Admin will do a bit of re-organising at the same time. It would be sensible to do it now, as the Off Topic section is going through changes anyway. These trivial changes could have a big effect on how easy that section is to use.

    No.The MODs just need to start Moving more Threads.Start puting in more over time.

    BOT being hired as an ADMIN?I wonder why.

    Not that I am starting anything by saying that.

    Like you say these are trivial changes but they will make navigation a lot easier and will cause less confusion as to where to post stuff. We will have a section for news, a place for seriousness and one for having a laugh. Simple.
