We Have Too Many Forums

Recommended Posts

Guys,

 

We don't have the activity to merit all of these forums

 

It just exacerbates low activity and hides topics

 

We should merge a bunch

Let's start out by merging the RP room with the scape lounge

I think the first misconception that we have low activity is that there's a distinct division between those who browse the RuneScape forums and those who don't. Looking at the "View New Content" button reveals:

The vast majority of posts are in the RuneScape sections. People like myself, who care more about this forum for the sake of being a forum, would naturally be completely oblivious to what's happening there; we just check up on General Chat and shizzle, worrying about the paucity of active topics in those particular places. Anyway, I think it's safe to keep the RuneScape forums as they are.

 

Onto Forum & Site Talk, I don't see any changes that could be made either. Website and Content Submissions is as organized as it could be, and I don't think we want to mess with the Scape Lounge and Fun 'n' Games, or Website & Forum Announcements, obviously. The other two sections are as active/inactive as they've always been.

 

That leaves:

What is there to do here? The two Creativity Corner forums are fairly inactive, but both of them are already the result of 3+ subforum merges, so I don't think that doing that again will work this time around.

 

The Other Games is quite active, so we can ignore that. Technology: Discussion and Help is active enough, in my opinion, and is already the result of two subforums. I believe the Debate Room is active enough, and even if one argues otherwise, I don't think any forum will want to suffer a merge with it -.-.

 

That leaves General Chat, Breaking News, and Polls and Surveys. General Chat and Breaking News used to be one, so I guess you could argue for that. Polls and Surveys might fit in as well. I don't know. I just wanted to narrow it down to the only reasonable options.

Yeah, there is issues with off topic activity. Not sure why; Sals Realm seems to have had more active off topic than Runescape discussions in the past years up to very recently...

 

Anyway, as for merging forums I don't have an issue with it, but let's learn from our mistakes. Merging Runescape suggestions with Runescape general wouldn't be a bad idea, but merging clans with Runescape general would effectively kill any clan discussion we could possibly have in the future.

It may seem overwhelming, but there is a lot of content everywhere... roots on the forum dig very deep.
